Preparing To Import Data

Before using the importer to import data into Simple:Press  we strongly recommend that you adhere to the following guidelines.

  1. Backup your system
  2. Make sure that you are using a FRESH install of Simple:Press – the importer will not import data into an installation that contains previous data.  You can reset your Simple:Press installation by using the UNINSTALL link in the WordPress plugins screen (under the Simple:Press plugin):

  1. Test the import process on a copy of your site.  Most reputable WordPress hosts can quickly clone your site to a staging location.  Once you’ve figured out that the import process works there, you can then backup your live system and re-do the import process there
  2. Backup your system.  Seriously – attempting to import new data from a 3rd party system into your production website without a backup is just begging for trouble!
