Importing and Exporting reviews

Importing and exporting reviews is quite easy and can be done with native WordPress tools and features. As WordPress includes a native export feature we can utilise that, and for importing you’d need a plugin.

Exporting reviews

To export your reviews you can head over to the ‘Tools’ menu and click the ‘Export’ submenu. On that page you can select what content you’d like to export. Within that list you’ll see the radio button ‘Reviews’ which you can select to solely export the reviews.

Once you’ve clicked the ‘Download Export File’ button a XML formatted file that you can use for importing elsewhere (or just as a backup).

Importing reviews

To import reviews you can head over to the ‘Tools’ menu and click the ‘Import’ submenu. Then click the last option ‘WordPress’. It may ask you to install the WordPress Importer plugin if you haven’t yet. When you’ve installed the plugin you can follow the instructions on the screen and use the file we exported earlier to import the reviews.
