Support » Fixing WordPress » Will second import overwrite or duplicate old posts & pages?

  • Hi,

    I’m creating a new site to replace an old existing one, but will use all old content 500+ pages/posts. The old one runs WP2.8 and so I couldn’t use a Migration plugin, so I exported-imported the xml several months ago. That worked OK but now the new development site is ready to go live, I’ve discovered the client has 50+ new posts (and misc page changes) created since the original xml was exported.

    I’m trying to figure out what will happen is I just do another export-import – will it overwrite corresponding posts / pages on the new site (many of which I’ve tidied up and reformatted!) or will it create a duplicate post/page (eg postname-2) where one already exists, so I can just delete these if not required?

    Lots of backups already taken 😉

    Any guidance much appreciated!
