Support » Plugin: 1 Click WordPress Migration Plugin » Not replacing url’s in ACF Link field

  • Resolved ollievincent

    Hello,

    I have just tested your plugin (not on a live site). It did duplicate the site well, and I really like how simple it is, however, it does not seem to replace a url inside a ACF Link field.

    This potentially could be a set back as so many people do use ACF.

    I can get around it by doing a find and replace in the database, but a lot of people don’t know/like doing that.

    Just some feedback, and any fixes would be appreciated!

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Thanks for the feedback.
    You are absolutely correct, at this point we are not replacing all URLs in the DataBase using the new TopURL. We only update the ‘siteurl’ and ‘home’ so you can get access to your migrated site. If you use hardcoded urls inside ACF or other plugins or posts you would need to use a search and replace plugin such as https://wordpress.org/plugins/search-and-replace/ to update what needs updating. We’ve also noted that in our FAQs https://1clickmigration.com/faq/
    We’re still evaluating if adding in that feature will produce more harm than good since we don’t want to take away from the simplicity of the plugin and doing a blanket search/replace might not be what some users want. Perhaps we can document this limitation a bit better in the plugin directly.

    Hi,

    Sorry, I am slightly confused. Is this not a site migration tool to rival Duplicator and Wp All in One Migration (eventually)?

    Is this for something else?

    I have never needed to migrate a site over to another URL and not need the URLs to change for relevant pages. Am I misunderstanding something?

    Just to clarify, I do mean pages on the site (not external pages) such as an about page (/about). These get hardcoded as absolute URLs by WordPress as default. Why would you not want them to change?

    Thanks

    Sorry, I misspoke earlier. Yes, that feature is actually in the works.
