Hi Everyone,

Hi Everyone,

We’ve just released Google+ Exporter, an application that helps you to export your Google+ feeds (profile, pages, collections, communities, including all comments) to WordPress eXtended RSS file.

Another available option is to export all posts published to profile, pages, collections, and communities to JSON file, including all comments!

Transform exported JSON data can into imports for other services, or you can use JSON export as a full generic backup of your posts.

The free version of the application enables you to export up to 3000 posts. You can buy a license key to get unlimited experience.

I would love to know your opinion, suggestions or requests. Thank you!

You can find more detailed info in the blog post https://blog.friendsplus.me/export-google-plus-feeds-45926c925891

UPDATE: release 1.0.5:

Downloadable from https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jkaut9054xzwd1e/AAAkXT7j7I8qi7ryMJqBx0oxa?dl=0&lst=

What’s new:
* fixed posts comments download. We recommend re-downloading all feeds to fetch missing comments.
* fixed message compilation for WP export
* WP export now with comments
* export collections and communities separately
* configurable exports, pick whether you want to export private posts and comments

  1. Gina Fiedel WP export contains only public posts without comments. Comments are present only in the json export.

    Would you like comments to be also part of the WP export? Is it a good idea?

  2. Friends+Me personally, I think it’s a great idea to include comments in the WP export. I’m most likely going to create a site dedicated to all my G+ posts from both my Profile and our business page. It’s not unusual for the comments to be integral to the experience of the post.

    When you refer to “public posts” does that exclude communities and/or collections?

    Will there be a way to export posts from private communities?

    My technical expertise doesn’t include knowing how to utilize the json export or what the look and feel would be for those. Having a hard time wrapping my brain around that option.

    Thanks for asking!

  3. Gina Fiedel right now you can export for WP only posts published to profiles and pages including collections.

    Next version of the app should be able to export separate communities (public and private) posts for WP.

    Right now the JSON export contains all posts including collections and communities (public+private).

    The export to JSON is there for full generic backup and for other developers who will be able to create other programs and help G+ users to migrate data to even more services. Together we’re stronger.

  4. Friends+Me so far I’ve only found my own comments included in Google+ Stream Takeout data archives. The only time someone else’s post is included, is in the ActivityLog Takeout when I’ve made a comment on someone else’s topic, and even then it only includes the top-level post of the original poster.

    Btw, I’m not arguing that the export shouldn’t include comments, merely stating that those who decide to republish those comments (that weren’t made by themselves) elsewhere, should preferably ask for permission, or at least inform the original posters. Especially if the original posters would have no direct control over its privacy settings, exposure, editing and especially their existence.

  6. First reaction: I would say, one should be able to select what to be scanned “first”… I have pages and communities that don’t need to be exported “at all”…
    Seems to work fine, on the scan/export side… Will try an import in one of my blogs… 😉

  7. Hi Friends+Me Did a test with a brand new 4.9.8 WP I just installed for tests 0592196e5f.testurl.ws – test DJM – Just another WordPress site – no special plugins, except Gutenberg & Akismet & Import.
    Imported a 3,5Mb XML file from a community with 100+ active users, this created a few accounts, merged most of them to the main admin (my choice), comments (675) seem OK too, asked to download & import attachments.

    But : got a Internal error 500 at some point. The admin log says : PHP Warning: rmdir(/srv/data/web/vhosts/0592196e5f.testurl.ws/htdocs): Directory not empty in /srv/admin/htdocs/wordpress.php on line 81
    => IMHO, there’s some bad URL called here /srv/admin/htdocs/ seems incorrect – don’t know if this comes from your side or the importer side…

    Plus, comments seem to be generated twice for each entry…
    Could create an account for you on this server if needed.

    There’s a problem with categories & tags too. The main category is the name of the community. OK, created. But in the community posts are affected to subcategories (aka Topics I created – see https://plus.google.com/communities/115831804659443760451 ). for each post, the category appears as category-topic which was not created: e.g http://0592196e5f.testurl.ws/wp-admin/edit.php?category_name=african-music-forum-old-african-music
    Just a few tags were connected, although tens were created… Appear to have 0 post connected, but some seem to work, e.g. http://0592196e5f.testurl.ws/tag/kenya/
