    Hello, I am launching a new website, and I was wondering if there is anyway to transfer the events from my old site to my new site. Both are wordpress sites using Events Manager. Any help is much appreciated, as I would rather not have to manually enter each event again. THanks!

    you need to use phpmyadmin and copy wp_posts and wp_postmeta; also, all the wp_em_ tables, it should work fine.

    You may also want to resave your settings so that capabilities are correctly added (even if you copy over your wp_options table or contents).

    Thanks. I logged into phpmyadmin and can see the data in there, but I'm not sure how to copy it from one database to another. Any tips? I realize this is outside of the plugin support, but figured I'd give it a shot anyhow. I hate to have to manually re-enter everything :)

    you can use export (.sql file) within phpmyadmin and on the other side import the .sql file.

    the important tables you want are

    wp_em_.... tables

    if you export those, it should work, but you will lose all your posts/pages on your new site as this imports your posts/pages/etc. too

    I am having a similar issue. We developped Events Manager on our dev serveur, and added locations and some events. Now we would like to export these data and import them on our front server BUT without deleting anything, since this server have an ongoing post production on it.

    Is it possible to export events data and import them ?
