    Importer is double-serializing custom fields

    Get all fields with "a" content.

    I've experienced this as well. Twice. And twice have I had to spend hours in phpMyAdmin manually copy+pasting the correctly serialised data from one database to another.

    This is a serious ballbuster, and one I believe shouldn't be too hard to fix. Any help? D:

    That seems to happen with postmeta meta_values too.
    I have exported the content of WP 3.0.4 blog and imported it into a new blog with WP 3.1 RC 2. The Importer plugin version was 0.2.

    While the serialized meta_values in the WP 3.0 wp_post_meta table are starting like a:1:{i: ..., the imported serialized meta_values starting all like s:435:"a:1:{i:.

    Is that behaviour intended?

    BTW: When I update the imported posts with the post editor, the these meta_values will saved right (a:1:{i: ...) again.

    Regards,
    Tim

    I have tried the Development Version (0.3 beta 4) and it seems to work better.
