How to migrate from Social Warfare
This article will guide you through the process of migrating your posts' social share counts and social media data from Social Warfare to Social Pug.
Migrating all your posts’ social media data from Social Warfare into Social Pug is a simple and easy process, done with the help of Social Pug’s Migration Add-On.
The migration process covers:
- your posts’ custom social media data (Social Media Image, Social Media Title, Social Media Description, Pinterest Image, Pinterest Description, Custom Tweet);
- Click to Tweet boxes added into the post content;
- your posts’ social media share counts.
Downloading the Migration Add-On
The add-on file download, named “Social Pug – Social Warfare Migration Add-On”, is available from your account on DevPups, under the File Downloads tab.
The downloaded file should have a .zip format. If you find that the file is actually a folder, please make sure your browser doesn’t automatically unzip downloaded files. If your browser does unzip files automatically, please see this article for more help.
Installing the Migration Add-On
The add-on is a regular WordPress plugin that can be installed directly from your WordPress’ Plugins admin page. To install it, navigate to Plugins -> Add New, click the Upload Plugin button, found besides the page’s title, and upload the downloaded .zip file.
Once activated, the migration options should be available in Social Pug -> Migration Tool. You need to have Social Pug installed and active in order to see this page.
For the migration process it is not mandatory to have Social Warfare active.
Note: If you have another Social Pug migration add-on active, for example the Tasty Pins Migration Add-on, please deactivate it.
Uninstalling the Migration Add-On
Once the migration process is finished please check that your social media data has been migrated properly. If everything is good, you can safely deactivate and delete the add-on from your WordPress admin Plugins page.
If you find any issues with the migration process, please open a support ticket for assistance.
