Topic: Export Galleries from Old Wordpress Website to New Wordpress Website

Hello,

I have 6 Simpleviewer Galleries on my website. I am moving hosting providers and I am setting up the Wordpress installation from scratch on the new hosting. I have backed up everything, including uploaded images, but I was wondering how I go about exporting the Simpleviewer Galleries (the names, the settings for each, what images are included in it etc.)?

Is it all held in some files in the plugins folder?

Old Wordpress installation: 3.3.1
New Wordpress installation: version 3.5.1
Old Simpleviewer Plugin Version: 2.3.0
New Simpleviewer Plugin Version: 2.3.2.1

Thanks!

The XML files for the galleries are stored in the 'wp-content/uploads/' directory.
Media Library images used in the galleries are also stored (in subfolders) in the 'wp-content/uploads/' directory.
The plugin files themselves are all stored together in the 'wp-content/plugins/wp-simpleviewer' directory.

The paths for the images and thumbnails displayed in the galleries are generated dynamically when the gallery is displayed (and are not hard-coded as absolute URLs in the XML files) so as long as you copy all the XML files (which contain only configuration options) in the 'wp-content/uploads/' directory, you should be fine.
