Simple Fields
[resolved] Export and Import (6 posts)

    I have to move a WordPress site from one server to another. Everything exported/imported properly except for Simple Fields. Is there a way to export all simple field settings (fields, groups, connectors) from one WP install to another?

    I've been wondering about this as well. I've done some exports / imports using plugin version 0.3.9 from a production site to a stage site, and it hasn't worked well for me in the past. Fields have gotten mixed up, and I ended up with values in the wrong fields as well as some duplicated fields.

    Has export / import been addressed in more recent versions?

    The support for import/export is still crappy. But we are aware of it and It's something that's on the road map.

    Is the export/import still an issue? What are the other ways of dealing with this issue?

    If it is still fo any help to you guys

    Take these steps:

    in PHPmyadmin
    good db: (you might have a differently named options table)
    select * from wp_options WHERE option_name LIKE '%simple_fields%'
    select the 3 results and press export

    new db: just insert if it is a new database

    if it is a database that already has simplefields installed, first do:

    delete from wp_options WHERE option_name LIKE '%simple_fields%'

    Hope this will help someone.

    Thanks a lot!
    Re-installed everything on web server to see what I was missing as everything was being imported except Simple Fields.
    Your solution worked perfectly.
