ACF options importer/exporter
Import and export ACF field date from the database directly.
Allows you to specify a comma separated list of options fields DATA to export to a json file.
You can then import that json file back into the database.
This is a super-dumb sql dump of all fields from the database with the name of your fields.
I have a load of data filled in on my development installation and want to port over all of the
records to my staging and live servers without having to re-create all records by hand. This
allows me to just dump all of the fields out of the
wp_options table in wordpress and import
them into another installation quite quickly.
This project was built with the following frameworks, technologies and software.
These are the steps to get up and running with this plugin.
- Clone the repo into your wordpress plugin folder
git clone https://github.com/IORoot/wp-plugin__acf--inline-datetime-field ./wp-content/plugins/acf_datetime_inline
- Activate the plugin.
A new menu item will appear under the ACF 'custom fields' menu call 'ACF import/export'.
Supply a comma separated list of field names to export.
my_field1, myrepeater, my_text_area1
Click export, and save the
Click on the button to upload your
options.json file. Note it MUST be called
options.json to work.
WARNING - ALL EXISTING FIELDS OF THE SAME NAME WILL BE OVERWRITTEN.
This is very handy for repeater fields. I usually place most things into top-level repeater fields. I can just specify the name of the top-level repeater field and it will automatically grab all sub fields as well.
- The import function runs a
insert_optionfunction on every record it finds in the json file.
- The file to import MUST be called
options.json. I know, thats lame, but it'll have to do for now.
- I've used it with repeaters, groups, selects, text and textarea fields. It Should be ok with others, but haven't tested it.
No customisation required.
