I've been creating a course on Coursepress and I'd like

I've been creating a course on Coursepress and I'd like to export it to import to a different site. I don't see an obvious way to do it, but presumably it's possible, otherwise it's a lot of work put into something which can't be moved or even backed up very easily.

Can you help?

    Hi there @Colin

    I hope you're well today!

    You can indeed export your courses using the built-in WordPress tools under Tools > Export/Import in your admin.

    First, be sure CoursePress is activated & configured on the site where you want to import.

    Then go to Tools > Export on the site where you have created your course. If you don't want to export all the site content, you'll need to export the following 7 content types one-by-one:
    Courses
    Units
    Modules
    Certificate Templates
    Module Responses
    Notifications
    Discussions

    Then, on your destination site, use the WordPress Import tool under Tools > Import to import those saved XML files into that site, again one-by-one.

    You should then see your courses nicely set up on the destination site.

    I hope this helps! And thanks for being a member :slight_smile:
