[Resolved] [Plugin: Types – Custom Fields and Custom Post Types Management] Import / Export Not Functioning

    Is the ‘export’ page itself returning you a 404 error, or when you’re clicking on the ‘export’ button?

    Can you paste the full URL of the export function here, so that we can see if the URL is mis-calculated in your site?

    Also, did you make sure that no file is missing from your install?

    Subscribing…

    ugh. nothing worse than setting up a dozen or so types and variables and custom fields on the development side just to find out you can’t import them. PAINFUL.
    Further, I haven’t seen such an unfriendly response to a failed action in years.
    After trying to import (all other plugins off…tried on different browsers) I get this

    “Import/Export
    Error parsing XML
    xmlParseEntityRef: no name”

    That’s it.
    I tried it with just using the text import as well. Same msg.
    UGH! Completely unusable. I’m using the latest version of WordPress. And the latest version of the plugin. Would love to see a way around this.

    Probably related to escape characters in the text. See this other thread:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-types-custom-fields-and-custom-post-types-management-import-doesnt-work

    If this is the case, we found the cause and it’s being fixed for the next update.

    Alright, I got rid of the ampersands in the XML files before importing (simply find and replace works like a charm), and boy am I happy. I wish i could edit my previous post (i said “completely unusable”)…because with that little fix (admittedly difficult to find), I have been very very happy. Thanks.
