[Resolved] [Plugin: Advanced Export for WP & WPMU] how to export attachments only

  • whilst attempting to export a large site from from WP MU 2.7 to a new home on WP 3.3.1 i ran into problems with the export bombing out and the output file truncating/corrupting after approx 10MB.

    in addition, i only wanted posts – no categories, tags, or pages.

    thus i resolved to export in parts, by date.

    only problem, the exports were then missing any posts of type=’attachment’, thus i was left with no images to import to my new site.

    the solution i found: modify the plugin to produce ONLY attachments (as another valid post type from the admin drop-down).

    file: ra-export.php
    function: ra_export_page
    line: around 322

    change from:

    ...
    <select name="post_type" id="post_type">
    <option value="all" selected="selected"><?php _e('All Content'); ?></option>
    <option value="page"><?php _e('Pages'); ?></option>
    <option value="post"><?php _e('Posts'); ?></option>
    </select>
    ...

    change to:

    ...
    <select name="post_type" id="post_type">
    <option value="all" selected="selected"><?php _e('All Content'); ?></option>
    <option value="page"><?php _e('Pages'); ?></option>
    <option value="post"><?php _e('Posts'); ?></option>
    <?php /*mod jrc 300312 - allow attachments only*/ ?>
    <option value="attachment"><?php _e('Attachments'); ?></option>
    <?php /*end mod jrc 300312*/ ?>
    </select>
    ...

    simples. works a treat. (my only issue now is getting the ‘wordpress-importer plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-importer/)
    – to import them reliably. hey ho.

    hope this helps someone.
