I'm wondering if Backup Buddy would let me do a databse-only backup of posts from one domain and then add them to posts at another domain, so that the second domain would retain its own posts while adding and integrating the new ones. The dates of the incoming posts may overlap some with those in the original.

Is this, or something to the same effect, possible?

Thank you much.

Hi Nicole,

BackupBuddy using importbuddy cannot "merge" two sites. It cannot look at the two sites during a migration and see what needs updated while not touching what hasn't been updated since last backup type of stuff.

Welcome to the forums. Be sure to post your questions in the correct forum and don't forget about the new and improved search function located in the top right of the forum pages. The gear/wheel symbol next to the search box will give you more options for advanced searching. Thank you and have a nice day.
