Has anyone used/installed the product from these people?  I'm specifically asking about the "Video Marketing Blog" from February of 2014.  When I opened up the zip file, I expect to see files to install on my server.  However, the only information on installing them was to view his videos on how to install the blog files.  Apparently, he used ImportBuddy for this.

In visiting the website, it was apparently not renewed and the product might not be available anymore.  Any ideas?

Thanks!

Kelly Ling

Mark - When you get a chance, could you look at this and see if it's still available?  Thanks!

Hi Kelly,

I think I remember their site getting hacked back in 2013 - I wonder if that happened again and they decided just to let the domain go?

Fortunately you can view their tutorial videos on YouTube:

Thanks,

Out of curiosity I just checked with GoDaddy and the domain is available ... for a mere $980!

I can't stand when people use Import Buddy.  I've had issues with getting some to work.  I know it does not play well at all with XAAMP.  It's a lot easier, and more secure in my opinion, to install the blog on my local computer with XAAMP than it is to create a database on my hosting and upload all the files.

If I remember correctly, the Import Buddy file format isn't anything special.  I think you can rename the file from it's original format name to a .zip or other compressed format.  From there you'll have all the files in their proper structure.  I think the SQL file might be included within the Import Buddy file as well.

In the past when having issues with files like that I go the geek way and pick the file apart manually.  I've noticed that most file formats are nothing more than zip files.  TemplateToaster, Artisteer, OpenOffice files are all zipped files.  Rename them to .zip file and you're good to go.  They all store the settings and information in an or set of XML files.

I am with you, I am not a fan of import buddy. It's a good idea, but not for me.

Biggest thing for me, I don't like the idea of having to put in cpanl details, just seems like a HUGE security risk. One I don't want, and more importantly don't want for my customers.

Other problem I've run across is that a few times, the file names get way to long and when I tried unzipping them my computer says the file names/path are too long and I can't extract all the files. This of course could lead to some problems. That might be the person who make the export. Just something I ran into.

About a week ago, I installed the "Woodworking" niche site on a sub-domain, just as a test. It installed fine for me, I just downloaded the zip from the downloads area to my flash drive, then opened it and removed the IB php file and the wp zipped file, then created a database in my sql on my cpanel, uploaded the two files to my server. Went thru the IB process and at the end, it did give a couple warning messages but it installed fine on the sub-domain. My issue is with the actual website design. It just looks a little dated to me. I can customize it but if I have to go thru all that, in my opinion, I think I would rather build it myself, or just outsource it.
