Re: [PLUG] The most pernicious bug in WordPress

It does indeed, but it doesn't fix the underlying issues. :) The fact that it needs to exist is an issue. WordPress is ubiquitous and wonderful for some things, until you need a plugin or extendability. For a blog it is fine. But if you ever need to try to populate taxonomies from an external data source, you will want to slit your wrists. Any documentation would have helps on why the DB is designed in the wrong way it is!

But live and let live!

Again, that's why WP-CLI Is Your Friend. *grin* It does a ton of the heavy lifting for you.

`wp db export` grabs you a SQL file. `wp db import [sql file]` imports the DB elsewhere. `wp search-replace [old url] [new url]` does the S&R, including serialized values.
