#28745 closed enhancement (fixed)

WXR Export should allow for plugins (or core) to filter which comment meta are exported

There exists a filter (https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/18280#comment:5) to allow core/plugins to choose to skip certain postmeta in exports. It would be handy to have the same functionality for commentmeta.

Example implementation: Akismet is already set up to use this filter (as implemented in WordPress.com's exporter, which is discussed in #22435) to exclude comment meta values from exports that won't be of any utility after an import. (https://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/943192)

Patch attached.

Thanks for the patch, cfinke.

It was more work to punt this to 4.1 than it was to commit it.
