Issue when exporting/importing fields along with pages

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I'm trying to export a few pages from my localhost to the staging server using the JSON export feature.

I selected the pages for export, and left the fields setting at default (to include all fields relevant to the pages being exported).

When I try to import them on the staging server, it prompts me to select alternatives for the fields I'm using, because "they don't exist locally" eg.

"A field named “simple_text” of type TextLanguage appears in the import data, but does not exist locally. If you want to import this field, select a replacement field here."

I mean, of course it doesn't exist locally yet, because I'm now trying to import it from somewhere else.. Please tell me what I'm doing wrong here?

Thanks!

The export/import feature of pages does only transfer pages not fields. There's a similar feature for fields though.

yoursite.com/backend/setup/field/ -> at the bottom right, you'll see two buttons: export + import 🙂
