I have already partially tested the above plugin and can testify it has made life very easy exporting and moving all the profile photos over from the old site to the new site. Many thanks to the developer for doing this.
@djpaul Thanks for taking time to think about this. Unfortunately I don’t know much about PHP, or believe me I would be on the case… But if it’s any help I have seen 2 plugins on these forums over the last few years that between them partially do this. I am quite green with this but maybe they could be a good reference? BuddyPress members import is great but only half a plugin. I did ask the developer to add export functionality but he went quiet. It seems to do everything if only we had the export file. The other export plugins we have found don’t deal with groups that have been joined, friendships, activity or paths to profile photos. Groups and friendships would be a good starting place and save a whole heap of time on a fresh install.
@henrywright Thanks, that’s done now. Surprised no one has posted this already…
@henrywright Thanks for your reply. I looked at Trac but can only find where to file a bug report, not a feature request.
I don’t want to sound ungrateful and realise the BuddyPress team are volunteers doing a great job. But import / export seems fundamental to me and I don’t understand why it is not built in. I’ve seen this sentiment reflected in other people also over the last few years. It would save a lot of people many problems if their websites crashed for sure.
I see there is a BuddyPress Members import by youngtechleads. com and I have used it myself.
I see there are also a few plugins that export some of the data needed. What I can’t find is a complete solution and copying sql database tables over just hasn’t worked for me.
I think this is really needed and will make BuddyPress a more complete product. I really do think this is a missing part.
So, the time for help on this has passed. But just to mention it seemed to be something in the activity part of the database that was confusing the members count. I made a new website and copied over the users, groups & friends. I left out the activity and turned it off in BuddyPress. The members count is now correct but still at a complete loss as to what happened and how to fix it. Plus side is we have a working site minus the activity.
Regarding the above. I started the website from scratch as I couldn’t find a way around this. And same thing has happened. I have no plugins installed apart from BuddyPress, MyCred & Backup Buddy… I have 79 users and BuddyPress is reporting something like 250. This is driving me nuts…
Any help very much appreciated.
Thanks, I have this working now but the users are still visible. It does redirect to homepage if you try and click on them, but we need them to vanished once their account is suspended. and reappear again when they are reactivated.
Thanks, I must have done something wrong.
I pasted in this code at the end of bp-custom.php and it crashed the site…
Thanks but this doesn’t work for what we need.
If not so important that the user can’t sign in. What we need is for their BuddyPress profile to disappear when they get suspended and reappear when they get reactivated. We need to be able to put their profiles into sleep mode and not be visible by the public.
Buddypress is a fine product, but needs an import/export feature built in, this is seriously missing. I need to do a fresh wp install and move the users and custom field data over. Please has anyone come across a relatively easy enough way of doing this? Or when will Buddypress include this?
