Support » Plugin: Pods - Custom Content Types and Fields » Migrating From Toolset Type to Pods

  • Resolved rainyh


    I’m having a hard time migrating my custom post type fields from Toolset Type to Pods. All the custom post types migrate over perfectly, but none of the custom post fields are migrating over data, even though they have the same slug name and match. Am I missing something obvious on how this migration should work?

    My steps are:
    1. Create all the custom post types, fields, and taxonomies in Pods on my new site (making sure they match the same types/fields/taxonomies in Toolset on my old site)
    2. Export Types data from Toolset into an .xml file on old site
    3. Import data using the WordPress Importer on new site
    4. Check the post types – all the content has migrated but the fields are all empty.

    I figured it out! If you’re working on this in the future and are stuck like me, check your database fields in wp_postmeta. I found that Toolset type actually stores all their data prefixed with wpcf-
    That means you need to add wpcf-to all of your custom fields in order to work!

    Thanks for reporting back with your fix!

    You can see the fields on the post edit screen too if you enable custom fields to show up 😉
