Multisite content copier does not copy embeded videos

I’ve just started using the multisite content copier and I am having 2 problems:

1. Embedded video code is not copying over. Most of our pages include a short video so this is a big problem for us.

2. My theme uses custom post types for home page items. I would like to be able to use the multisite content copier to update content from these custom post types but they do not show up in list to copy. I also have a plugin that creates custom post types and the custom post types are also not being shown in list to be able to copy.

    Hi Jack, thanks for the quick reply.

    1. The videos are probably 90% youtube, the rest are primarily vimeo. I have been creating a site “demo” to be a blog template. I have been copying content from “demo” to main blog #1. Here is an example of a page on demo: and here is the copied version without the video:>

    2. Are you able to update content with the content copier? I’ve noticed that if the page exists, rather than updating it, there is a duplicate created.

    3. I’ve granted access.

    Hi Jack, I haven’t heard back from you. I have found that sometimes the embed videos are copied and sometimes they are not.

    The last time I used the multisite copier it “did” copy the embed, however, I have an error message on my dashboard that says:

    Warning: Missing argument 2 for MCC_Post_Meta_Box::add_meta_boxes() in /home/usingess/public_html/wp-content/plugins/multisite-content-copier/admin/edit-post.php on line 25

    Also, I really need to know if this plugin provides a way to UPDATE content – I am finding that it creates new pages at all times rather than updating an existing page. Is this the expected behavior? I was hoping to be able to update with the plugin.

    Hi there @antkat,

    Hope you’re well today, I’ve done some testing here on your site and mine.

    With regards to the video embeds, I have replicated the same issues, though I can’t see here why sometimes it does copy and other times it doesn’t, as for me it’s happening randomly, rather than set conditions where it can be replicated.

    I have notified the lead developer on that.

    Currently, it cannot update/sync content, though that is planned for a future update.


    Kind Regards
