I have a classifieds theme I want to import it into the Real Estate responsive theme. This plugin will do it?
erm yes it will but you’ll be missing alot of custom field data, prices, bedrooms etc
Hi Mark Thanks. I bought WP All Import. Maybe I can try that.
never heard of it but worth a try i guess
Any tips on how to get the existing thumbnails from the old directory theme to show?? thanks, Megan
which thumbs? if you havent deleted the old theme your thumbs should still be there if your runnning 4.2+
Hi Mark – the thumbs are still in the old folder (\wp-content\themes\directorypress\thumbs) but just not showing next to the listing excerpt – maybe I did something wrong – still trying to learn the new responsive directory theme. I installed the new responsive theme and activated it then I used the plugin to transfer the listings etc from the old non responsive directory theme so now when I go to a category the listings are there, but the thumb (little image) which used to be associated with the listing and show in the category list does not show there is just a place holder image – any advice??? thanks, Megan
whats your link?
PS: after more investigation, when I go to edit an existing listing under manage listings the image is there in custom fields like ,myimage150x150.jpg and not till I update it to a full link like https://mysite.com/wp-content/themes/directorypress/thumbs/myimage150x150.jpg does it show so I guess I need to know if I have to manually update each listing or is there an easier way??? thanks, Megan
Hey Mark – I am doing this locally before I go through the process on my live site – don’t like to make changes on a live site till I know what’s what and how to do whatever – thanks, megan
OK – not sure what I did was correct or best but I just used a sql query in the database (phpmyadmin) to add/prepend the first part of the link 🙂
sounds ok, not much we can help with if your doing it locally though.
Yeah I realize that – I just have to ask my questions in case someone happens to have an answer for me – I just don’t want to update the live site with the new theme until I can do it smoothly and correctly (it is a customized older version of directory press) gotta feel like I have all my ducks in a row and even then I will be VERY nervous until everything is how it is supposed to be 😀 take care, and thanks for the reply, Megan
np, understand the feeling
