Do I need to Install WPSiteSync for Content on both sites?
Yes! The WPSiteSync for Content needs to be installed on the local or Staging server (the website you’re moving the data from – the Source), as well as the Live server (the website you’re moving the data to – the Target).
Does this plugin Synchronize all of my content (Pages and Posts) at once?
No. WPSiteSync for Content will only synchronize the Page or Post content that you are editing. And it will only Synchronize the content when you tell it to. This allows you to control exactly what content is moved between sites and when it will be moved.
Will this overwrite data while I am editing?
No. WPSiteSync checks to see if the Content is being edited by someone else on the Target web site. If it is, it will not update the Content, allowing you to coordinate with the users on the Target web site.
In addition, each time Content is updated or Synchronized on the Target web site, a Post Revision is created (using the Post Revision settings). This allows you to recover Content to a previous version.
Does WPSiteSync only update Page and Posts Content?
Yes. However, support for synchronizing Custom Post Types is available with our WPSiteSync for Custom Post Types add-on. Additional plugins for User Attribution, Synchronizing Menus and Pulling content are available as well.
More complex data, such as WooCommerce products, Forms (like Gravity Forms or Ninja Forms), and other plugins that use custom database tables are supported by additional plugins that work with those products.
