Hi, the import feature 'admins can use Special:Import' could usefully be clearer on who can be an admins. tom

What if the same page already exists? Edit

What happens if the same pagename exists on the target wiki? If one exports a set of pages from a source wiki and then imports those pages into a wikia site / target, and that page name is already present in the target, what happens? Does the new content overwrite the existing content? Does the new content get put into the end of the existing content? Rauterkus 17:23, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

The import will overwrite the original page AFAIK. Mark@Wikia (talk) 17:32, October 9, 2010 (UTC)
The history of the import file is merged into the page. Frozen Wind 18:53, December 5, 2010 (UTC)
Perhaps a new section on the help page as to what to do in cases like this, where two pages have the same name, would be helpful. bloob (talk) 15:58, March 26, 2013 (UTC)

Maximum size of XML file?Edit

Hello, what is the maximum size of an exported file allowed to import? Sometimes i see the warning this file is too big. What about 11MB? --Saviour1981 (talk) 00:41, December 21, 2013 (UTC)
