Support » Networking WordPress » Redesign website – workflow?

  • Hi,
    I am trying to redesign a client website that I have inherited.
    I have imported it to my multisite installation (a task that I have found non-trivial whenever I have attempted it – wordpress export and import seldom gets everything!), I have cloned it using NS Cloner 3 and spent some weeks changing and customising the theme, redesigning the menu layouts, etc.
    I would now like to find a way to import any updated or new posts, pages, events etc. from the original site so I can make this new one the live site.
    Does anyone have any idea how to do this? I could clone a blank copy of the site (using NS Cloner) and then reimport from the old one, but as I said, this always leaves stuff behind in my experience, especially extra data from plugins (such as events calendar). Surely someone must have come up with a workable method?

    Any insights would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks

    If (or after, if not) the two are on the same server and you have a database user with permissions for each, maybe try to do that by using “Synchronize” in phpMyAdmin to push the older one into a copy of the newer one. And to push in *only* the tables where you have made changes and so on, first drop all *other* tables from the copy of the old one to be pushed in.

    That won’t work since the tables are changed.

    BEsides an export/import which will by it’s nature skip over any already included post? Nothing really easy :/
