Gary, that was it!
I changed the slug (doh) and saved my permalinks and viola! Thank you so much!
The thing that is unnerving about this plugin, though, is that whatever it does, does not stay if deactivated. That seems like a risky long-term solution to me. I'm really going to have to learn how to do this manually so that I'm not relying on this. This will work for me for today though and hopefully I can get this site live in the next few days.
Thanks again.January 24, 2014 at 11:41 am in reply to: Migrating Custom Post Types from one site to another #86852
OK, so I tested it out. The permalink looks correct when I switch one post to my newly assigned "clients" CPT but then I get a 404 error. So that's not going to be my answer. At least I don't think so.
There has to be a way to get the theme functions to recognize wat-clients as /clients/ now, right? I'm a little out of my league on this one still, so any insight would be helpful.January 24, 2014 at 7:38 am in reply to: Migrating Custom Post Types from one site to another #86796
Thanks you guys! 🙂
I think I got most of it worked out. I'll share what I did, in case it may help someone else.
I went back to the old site, assigned the CPTs I needed to a new user and was able to do an export/import that way. I used a plugin (CPT UI) to help me register the existing CPT name into the new site and now everything is showing up as it should.
In retrospect, I probably did not need to do the import/export again, as the data was there, but I didn't know that the name the old developer used was "wat-clients". The first import failed and that's how I discovered that.
Now I just need to figure out how to fix the permalinks to be /clients/ instead of /wat-clients/ . Is it best to just register a new CPT "clients" and reassign them?
Thanks again for your help.
