I am having a ton of issue with attachments, I am so sick with wp import/export plugin, I feel like doing phpmyadmin is the best way to do anything. I just moved a new version of one of my themes to the live demo server and the best way to do it was via SQL and went smooth.

Now exporting the sample_data.xml does export the XML file properly but fails to import Media on a different site.

Do you know any better way to go around this? Is there a tutorial or some wp trick to do I am not aware of?

We actually made a 1 click import for some features in our new theme. Problem is, by importing the database some stuff cannot be imported, like widgets, so we end up just importing elements that we couldn’t with the wp plugin. If you find something please let me know because we couldn’t :/

I’m always curious how they make this “1 click demo install”. Hope someone would like to reveal the secret

^ it’s not only about clicking twice or more, but the simplicity of sample data installation. So the user can find out what they have to do

I use a modified version of the importer plugin and changed the class name so it doesn’t conflict. You can also make it look almost exactly like the demo by using use add_option() in the importer to import data into your options panel such as social icons, fonts, colours, settings and other things that the importer wouldn’t usually do.

You can also use set_theme_mod() in the importer so it also sets the menu location, something the default importer doesn’t do.

I might post an example if you guys are interested.

EDIT: Also 1Click demo installers can drastically cut down your support tickets. It is definitely something to look into.

+1 I finally got around to doing this, and I’ve got admit, I wish I’d done this on every theme. The support ticket difference is unbelievable.
