I am using the Feeds module to import content from a different Drupal site as xml.

The problem is that the feed import is successful, and a message says how many nodes of the new content type it has created. But when I go to content or to the database the content imported is nowhere to be seen.

What is the workaround for this issue? Is it a bug in the module?

  • Please tag question with Drupal version. And have you checked for errors? Cache problems? Aug 16, 2017 at 10:46
  • Am importing into a Drupal 6 site. No errors thrown. I have checked the cache tables and the content isn't there (cache, ctools_object_cache) and there is nothing there. The logs speak of a page not found (instream/ad_status.js). I don't understand why it isn't working

  • @ClemensTolboom Version tags should be used only for questions that apply to a version only, not to merely say what version a site is using. In this case menting the Drupal version in text or comment would suffice (unless feeds is significantly different between Drupal versions). Aug 17, 2017 at 7:45
  • @Neograph734 well the IP now told us it is Drupal 6 which is quite important. Aug 17, 2017 at 9:20

I found the solution. This is what I did for the nodes to be picked and listed under content: For the importer, Mapping for Node Processor, added a source xpathparser mapped to target GUID and checked Unique target. enter image description here Then for XPath XML parser mapped the GUID field to the Node id field in my xml file (for my case the label was Nid) enter image description here

  • Nice. I think you can now mark your answer as 'the answer' too. Aug 17, 2017 at 9:22
  • @ClemensTolboom you're right, though probably a little extra patience is needed to do so (a self answered question can only be accepted after 2 days ... I seem to remember). Agree? Aug 17, 2017 at 10:23
