    If I want to do a fresh install, I may not want to import my whole site, just a whole bunch of custom fields.

    How can I import all the custom fields from one site to a freshly installed PP Theme?

    Same for listings & pages.

    WP All Import does not do custom fields.

    is there a way to clone just custom fields, listings and/or pages through backup, copy, clone functions in Duplicator?

    @Mark, can you add a feature to import and export Custom Fields in Tools in PP Themes please?

    Thanks.

    Is it possible to copy the custom fields file with the custom fields data/content in it from one site a new site? If so what file is it?

    Thanks.

    Hi Michael,

    If I understand you correctly, look at :

    WP-All-Import

    I used this and works/worked very well ‘once’ you get your head around it’

    HTH 🙂

    Thanks gents.

    @Mark: would be a nice toolbox feature to have in theme admin settings.

    You can do a xml export/import

    The XML method keeps the data from my custom fields but what I want is to have the actual custom field imported in the custom fields section and visible on the add listings page.

    I am having to recreate the custom field and membership text even though the data is there and hidden.

    Do you understand my issue?

    Not the data in the custom fields but the actual custom fields and text that display on the add liatings page and the listings….that doesn’t appear unless I manually recreate fields and same for memberships. Then the data will appear.

    Data is there. But not displayed. I have to recreate the custom fields and memberships in order for them to display on my site even after an Import. That’s the issue and it is time-consuming.

    Any way to avoid that and make an export and import easier?
