contacted wp all import but they say that is metabox that has to do the next move. let us know
this is the wp all import reply:
"We don't have an integration for Metabox ourselves and it's not on our roadmap.
But, they've been working on an integration for WP All Import. You'll need to contact Metabox support to confirm where that integration stands.
Let us know if you have any other questions.
I'm looking into this integration as well.
I need MB to work with WPAI as well.
Upvote for WPAI integration!
Normal MB fields like text and numbers work with WPAI just fine. It's the more specialized ones that don't work like image fields etc.
For example, for the image fields, I needed to write custom functions in WPAI to get the image ID and insert that into the MB custom field.
Any info on progress on this?
I notice the initial request was 5 years ago.
It's the only thing that prevents me from using MetaBox full time.
As I usually export data in ACF fields from old sites and move them into new builds using WP All Import / Export.
If I could easily export ACF Fields and import them into MetaBox that would be great.
So yea, any updates?
Or any other solutions?
Need this already!
If you look back a ways you can see that the Metabox team spent months working on integration with WPAI/E and hit the stumbling block of the WPAI/E core needing changes in order for it to work. They obviously don't have access to this so I guess if we want full integration then it would be better for us to all message them at Soflyy to get them to put it on their to-do list https://www.wpallimport.com/support/
Soflyy have done Metabox integration with Oxygen now so maybe they can do it with WPAI/E too. After all, it would make sense to do that as it makes Oxygen with Metabox Integration more useful if we can import/export custom fields using their other product too.
Actually I've been thinking about this a little more and I don't know the legalities surrounding it but as the Metabox team know how WPAI/E needs to be modified to incorporate Metabox full integration then why don't they just document their research and send it overt to Soflyy and ask that they incorporate it. After all it's a benefit to both companies it it can work together. But like I say. I haven't any idea of the legalities surrounding this so I may be just talking out of my butt!!!
Just pouring my thoughts out!!!
I did, what Paul Randall said:
> Please help the Metabox team to get the integration of WPAI/E working!
Here the Answer from Soflyy:
We've provided information and licenses as requested by the Metabox developer last year. Unfortunately, there's little more we can do since we're not developing the integration.
Anybody here from the Meta Box Team to give us a feedback?
Has anyone found a workaround to get WPAI to import images to a Image Advanced field?
Well, guys, that can't be it, can it?
I also have a MetaBox license, and I depend on the possibility data with WP ALL Import Pro and also WP ALL Export Pro.
As one of the users already wrote. Soffly and MetaBox also have an integration for Oxygen. Why does it not work for years to get the import done?
If the guys from Soffly does not want to help you, then just let him lick your ass and find another partner. Although I have a lifetime license of WP ALL Import, I would immediately buy a license of another import & export plugin that works with Metabox.
Supposedly, the developers of “WP Ultimate Exporter” have managed to get MetaBox support. Today I installed the plugin “WP Ultimate Exporter” in my local test environment and wanted to test it with Metabox. But I could not even test the plugin because it could not be activated. Not even after I deactivated all other plugins.
Dear guys, if you really want to succeed, you have to provide a professional import & export solution. Whether self programmed or from third parties. MetaBox is developed for “big” databases. And that means that large amounts of data have to be imported and exported.
This is like building a Ferrari, but there is no gasoline for it.
Sorry, that had to be said.
And guys, I know what I am talking (writing) about, I have sold a lot of software licenses for hardware manufacturers and OEM licenses all my life!
I'd a appreciate an update from Meta Box staff about this.
Also, an overview of what can and can't be done with WP All Import would be very welcome. I assume that simple custom fields (text, numbers) and taxonomies won't be a problem as they are native WordPress?
I have also exchanged several emails with Ahn from MetaBox and told him that an import and export add-on for WP All Import Pro is missing. He has always replied that they are working on it. But let's be honest... The people from Meta Box have been saying this for five years. I think they just don't get it.
I have a lifetime license but have never used it because I “always” use either repeater or relationship fields.
Just adding another voice. I have also run into the issue where WPAllImporter is not adding images to Metabox image fields.
please develop an add-on for WP ALL Import and Export.
Although I have a lifetime bundle of MetaBox and WP ALL Import Pro and WP ALL Export Pro, I would pay for the add-on too!
Friends, let's face it, the willingness of Soflyy is there!
I buy the add-on from Soflyy or from Metabox . I do not care.
But what I really not very professional is that the support of MetaBox here in the support forum does not even answer.
best regards Oliver
