Is it possible to recreate a page using the data from the mfn-page-items in the post-meta table?

I need to recreate a page from a database backup I have. I can't find an export value in the tables anywhere but I was wondering if it was possible. 


  • I was able to find the serialized data, but I cant seem to find the format that is used when exporting and importing pages.

    I have a page that I created and then the page was deleted. Going back into a database backup I have, I still have the serialized data entry from the mfn-page-items value in the post-meta table. 

    Essentially, how would I go about taking the following code (not the full serialized data): and making it the same format as the code that is used when importing/exporting a page in the builder.

    Serialized code from database table:
    a:5:{i:0;a:2:{s:4:\"attr\";a:17:{s:5:\"title\";s:36:\"Add Background Image to this section\";s:8:\"bg_color\";s:0:\"\";s:8:\"bg_image\";

    What I am trying to turn it into (code that is given when you choose to export the builder contents from the page):


    Overall, because wp revisions do not work on the builder, I am unable to roll back a page once it has been edited or changed. Is there a better way to do this?

  • When you go to export a page from the builder, what format is the generated code that is being given to the user for a later import? This is the format I am trying to get the serialized data into so I can import the page properly.

  • Perfect. Thanks you for your help. :D

  • Sorry to bump this thread, but I am trying to achieve the same thing. I have the serialized data from the database - taken from the meta_value field with the 'mfn-page-items' meta_key - this definitely appears to be the Muffin Builder content for the page.

    If I update this field in the database with a value from a backup (to try and restore a page) the Muffin Builder (and therefore front end page) are empty.

    Based on your instructions to serialize and then encode with base64 I have tried using these tools to:
    Serialize the value from the database:
    - Then encode it with base64 (in UTF-8 charset):

    Importing the string this process produces still gives an empty Muffin Builder. Can anyone advise on how to complete this process correctly?

  • Thanks for the response. What do you mean by ensuring that both versions are the same though?

    I want to overwrite an existing page with an older version. I have the old content from a database backup in serialised form. I thought updating just that database row with the old content would work but it doesn't.

    If I take that serialised data and encode it with base64, then paste that into the Muffin Builder Import it doesn't work either.

    I'd just like to know if there's a way to make this process work.
