I am having trouble with article formatting when exporting/importing articles from the production to the development environments

Whenever I export a couple of articles from my production site to my development site, the imported one loses all its spacings (&nbsp elements). Has anyone ever encountered this?

I use WordPress Importer; also tried different export/import plugins and they have the same effect.

  1. also have trouble with the featured image not being exported for the said articles and it is not being shown.

To be more precise:

The export structure looks like this:

<span style="font-weight: 400;">block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text   </span>  &nbsp;  <span style="font-weight: 400;"> block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text    </span>  &nbsp; 

After the import is complete, the structure looks like this:

<span style="font-weight: 400;"> block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text    </span>  <span style="font-weight: 400;"> block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text  block of text    </span> 

Developer to Production Cashe

Magento 2.2 Hi all been using MAGE for about 2 months now and I am a Neophyte to front and back end. I am looking for a little guidance in changing form “developer” to “production” mode. I don’t use the CL, I use a combo of my FTP access and CMS.

  1. What is the order of changing modes?
  2. What cashe folders do I delete?

I changed modes by going to:

  1. app/etc/ and opening env.php
  2. then I changed MAGE_MODE’ => ‘developer’ to MAGE_MODE’ => ‘production’

I have read that I have to delete the files in the cash folders.

  1. What should I do first? Delete cashe or change modes?
  2. Which folders and which files should I clear from what file paths?(In the examples I have seen the file structure is different from mine).

I have read a few articles and posts on when to use which mode but I am still a little unclear. Could you give me examples of what mode to use for what?

  1. Developer mode: What tasks should I do in this mode?
  2. Production mode: What tasks should I do in this mode?

I hope this is not too tall an order to ask. So please forgive my newness to Magento. I really appreciate you offering your professional advice and time!!!!

Thank you so much !!! Humbly, the Mage_Neophyte

Custom Ribbon Button is Disabled Once I Move Solution to Production Server from Dev VM

I recently deployed a wsp file for a SharePoint 2013 custom solution from my local development VM to a staging server. The solution was created using the empty SharePoint 2013 project template to which I added a custom ribbon button. Once the feature is activated the ribbon button appears but is disabled unlike the VM where it is enabled and functioning. The button is defined to display in the Document Set “Manage” tab. The button works on my VM but not on the staging environment. I’ve seen questions that are similar but the answers have not resolved the problem and have not been exactly the same scenario. I have included the Elements file so that someone might know what the issue is.

Elements XML:

<Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">   <CustomAction    Id="Ribbon.ManageDocumentSet.MDS.Manage.CustomRibbonButton"    Location="CommandUI.Ribbon"    RegistrationId="0x01"    RegistrationType="ContentType"    Title="Custom Ribbon Button">     <CommandUIExtension>       <CommandUIDefinitions>         <CommandUIDefinition           Location="Ribbon.ManageDocumentSet.MDS.Manage.Controls._children">           <Button Id="Ribbon.ManageDocumentSet.MDS.Manage.CustomRibbonButton"                   Command="CustomRibbonButtonCommand"                   Image16by16="/_layouts/15/GetMetaData/Export16_16.jpg"                   Image32by32="/_layouts/15/GetMetaData/Export32_32.jpg"                   LabelText="Get MetaData"                   TemplateAlias="o1"/>         </CommandUIDefinition>       </CommandUIDefinitions>       <CommandUIHandlers>         <CommandUIHandler           Command="CustomRibbonButtonCommand"           CommandAction="/_layouts/GetMetaData/MetaDataPage.aspx" />       </CommandUIHandlers>     </CommandUIExtension>   </CustomAction> </Elements> 

Thanks in advance.
