Export media with selected content


When selecting one post type in the WordPress export screen, by default the linked media (attachments) are not included.

This plugin adds an „Export media with selected content” option. When checked, the plugin tries to find featured images and included media in the post_content, adding them to the export file.

Întrebări frecvente

It does not seem to work?

This plugin hooks into the WordPress export routine and tries to find images related to the post (page, etc.). It does so by looking for „attached” (uploaded to) media and it searches the body of the post (the post_content) for image files.

It’s possible that themes or plugins use different ways of referencing media to your post. This plugin will not find those.

Can I (have somebody) extend this plugin?

Yes! The plugin features two filter hooks:
* export_query
* export_query_media_ids

Please browse the code to see what they do, I guess export_query_media_ids is easiest to use as it requires you to just add more attachment IDs to an array.

Tried this several times. Not one featured image was imported. 🙁

I just used this plugin on a site port - sites are running WordPress 5.2.2 and the one I'm porting to is running Divi theme with a child theme. I installed this plugin on the "from' site, did the export, then imported on the 'to' site, with the whole process taking maybe 10 minutes max. Bam! All my posts (3 pages worth) with all the images showed up exactly where they should with all the archives, etc. This tool saved me a significant amount of manual work. Thank you very much!

Simple, effective... what an amazing little plugin that has saved us so much time it's ridiculous. Great job.
