IMPORT / EXPORT BUDDYPRESS DATA
I have been following this topic since 2014 and wondering if there is an update.
Thanks to all the BuddyPress team for a great platform, but why is there no import / export facility? I am not a coder so don’t understand, is it because it too difficult to achieve?
It would be just perfect if we could export user data, what groups a user is in, and what friendships are in place. And if the icing was really on the cake the profile photos as well.
I’ve had our Buddypress Timebank in place since spring 2014 and have been on the forums ever since looking for a solution. There seems to be some kind of bug in our system I can’t work out. What we really need is a fresh start and an import/export facility.
I have tried copying database tables over from one installation to another with some degree of success, but there are stills bugs.
One problem I had yesterday, I tried deleting one user with ID=1. It’s the 2nd time I’ve tried doing this and the site crashes. Both the Members directory and the Groups page vanish, also out of 26 Groups there are only 3 left after deleting this user.
Also I have a problem with MyCred. Certain things don’t work that work on a fresh install.
It’s a lot of work to start again manually. Create users, put them into the correct groups, and recreate all of their friendships again, and upload all the profile photos.
Two years later I’m at my wits end with this project…
Please, is an import / export facility possible to be built into BuddyPress?
Any thanks again to all the volunteers who have built the platform this far.
