Images now sync in posts and pages! Woo-flippin’-hoo! That was a task that took 3 days straight by the Mastermind behind WPSiteSync, Dave Jesch.
To be fair, images were working just fine when we first released our Beta version. However, several refactoring of other small bugs broke Images sync. Welcome to product development, my friends!
If you are interested…
The problem came about because of how we were handling multiple images embedded within the content. While processing the images, there was a bug that caused the code that was sending the content data to the Target site to lose track of what it was doing.
To work around this, we implemented a queue. So as images are found within the content they’re added to the queue to be processed after the initial content is sent to the Target site.
We also improved the error handling and recovery while processing the multiple requests for Content and images.
So, voila! Fixed. It is all fixed.
Now you can sync both images within the content and Featured Images. Feel free to download the most updated copy in the WordPress.org repo. Our target date for WPSiteSync for Content Release Candidate is middle of May 2016. Please continue giving us feedback. Do not be bashful in reporting bugs. We rely on you, the Community, in helping us refine this tool. In return, we promise to continue making improvements!
