wordpress de-duping capabilities

If I export all posts from one wordpress site and go to import them into the other site, does wordpress have a de-dupe feature to make sure that some of the duplicate posts don't make it through? I'm building the redesign for an old wordpress site and will be exporting from old site and importing the posts into the new one.

    Hi cornelius_butler ,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    From what I tested, as the "old" and "new" site have different URLs, it will import the posts, even they have the same name, so it will create duplicates.

    Maybe the best option is remove the posts before import or manually delete the duplicates after import.

    Maybe a plugin like WP All import can avoid this situation, but, honestly, I never tested it.

    I hope our members can share their experience and bring some alternatives so you can achieve your goal.

    Cheers, Luís
