[resolved] Flushing synced content (4 posts)

    Hi Mark,

    Firstly thank you for writing such a great plugin. It's fantastic :)

    Question: Is there an easy way to flush already sync'd content.

    Scenario 1
    When a site has already sync'd and pulled content in from the source help website, even when I delete the secret key the old content is still being pulled in. Is there any way to reset?

    Scenario 2
    I have found that if content has already been produced in the non-source website and then it pulls in content from another website using the secret key then the order from the source website will be incorrect.

    Hope that makes sense :)

    So, when you delete the secret key, the content isn't still being pulled in — it just retains the contents of the last sync. But with the sync key removed, this content is now locally editable. Here's the scenario: you have a set of default documents, and want to pull them into a site, but you need to tweak some of those synced documents. You could do an initial sync, disconnect, and then locally edit them. You wouldn't be able to reconnect, of course. In this way, it could act as a pseudo import to get things started.

    You can, of course, just deleted the leftover synced documents that you no longer want.

    Also, note that if you connect to a new sync source, documents from a previous sync source will be deleted.

    What I may do in a future version, is give you the option of immediately deleting all synced documents when I detect that you've disconnected from a sync source. Until then, you'll have to use the bulk actions delete function of WordPress.

    Scenario 2 is about to be fixed in version 1.1, which I'm hoping to release tonight.

    Version 1.1 is now available, which fixes the reordering issue. Check it out (be sure to upgrade both your source and destination sites before testing).
