How To Export Featured Images (Post Thumbnails) In WordPress?

A big headache when exporting your WordPress site content is to take along your site’s featured images. Earlier we discussed about exporting your site menus and now this tutorial is on how you can easily export featured images. By default WordPress allows you to export all text content but there is no option for exporting featured images assigned to your blog post, pages and custom post types etc.

Export Featured Images is the new WordPress plugin that allows you to export Featured images from posts and other custom post types into a WordPress XML file which you can import to other WordPress installations using WordPress Importer present in tools menu.

Simply install and activate the plugin. Upon activation visit your admin area Dashboard -> Tools -> Export Featured Images, select post types for exporting featured and finally click ‘Export’ button. That’s all, you file will be downloaded.
