porting a website from local Xampp to live hosting

i develop locally using WP 3.9 over XAMPP, using the “vantage” theme and the “page builder” plugin.
locally, pages built in “page builder” work perfectly, but when i export database, update scripts (from “c:…” to real website links) and reimport database on live server, the pages do not appear the way they should.
when i log into the “wp-admin” on live server, all pages display as HTML, and as a unique blank row in “page builder”.
awaiting your feedback. thanks.

    Hi

    At this stage Page Builder unfortunately will only export correctly using WordPress > Tools > Export functionality. It is a known bug but we don’t currently have a solution.

    Sorry I don’t have better news.

    It is NOT exporting correctly using the WordPress > Tool > Export Functionality. When I import the XML file the vast majority of items are failing to import and the site looks NOTHING like what I created on my local server.

    Guys, I know you put in A LOT of work to build this theme, so really thank you! You might consider adding a disclaimer though because it really sucks to build in a local server environment only to realize that you have to take hours re-building the same framework on the live server. There must be some workaround, no? Or perhaps I’m not doing something right on the WordPress Export/Import functionality?

    The issue you might be seeing here is that WordPress import/export doesn’t automatically know your new domain. You need to manually update your asset urls. So anywhere you’ve inserted an image, you’ll need to update the url from your development url to your new url.

    That’s part of it, but it appears that several of the pages did not retain their “page-builder” framework on export including the homepage. Perhaps you guys would consider a “walk-through” on the import/export process.

  6. 8 years, 6 months ago Andrew Misplon Hi, I Work Here

    It should be as simple as Tools > Export. It’s just important that Page Builder is activated before export and importantly before import, as well as all the plugins that are being used on a given Page Builder page, if any.

    In addition to the failed media importation, I am also getting this message:

    Warning: array_map(): Argument #2 should be an array in /home/effutu/public_html/legacy-advisory.info/wp-content/plugins/siteorigin-panels/siteorigin-panels.php on line 1022

    Could this be why some of the pages built with pagebuilder are blank?

    Would it be possible for you to send us a copy of your export xml file? From the looks of things, there might be a problem with it.

    You can send it over to [email protected].

    Just emailed it over. Thank you guys for taking a look!

    While importing xml file I get the this error message, can you fix it please?

    Warning: array_map() [function.array-map]: Argument #2 should be an array in C:Program FilesEasyPHP-5.3.8.0wwwglobelcheck7wp-contentpluginssiteorigin-panelssiteorigin-panels.php on line 1154

    You might know what the issue is, so it will be easy to fix it.

    Thanks

    Any news on this bug?

  12. 7 years, 10 months ago Andrew Misplon Hi, I Work Here

    Unfortunately not yet. I’m chatting to Greg about it at the moment. Apologies.

    Let’s move this over to:

    Thread: Page builder style crashing after importing the xml file

  13. 7 years, 10 months ago Andrew Misplon Hi, I Work Here

    Please could you do the following for us:

    Please email [email protected] with your XML file and a list of all plugins currently active. We think this is most likely another plugin also trying to hook into wp_import_post_meta.

    Thanks

  14. 7 years, 10 months ago Andrew Misplon Hi, I Work Here

    Alternatively what you could try doing is this:

    Try running your import again but this time with all non-SiteOrigin plugins activated. That’ll be the quickest route to checking this theory out.

    Let me know how that goes.

    Thanks
