Exporting your website content with CSV Importer plugin

You can export the CSV files using the export option in the WP Ultimate CSV importer plugin. When your CSV file was lost or deleted which you have already imported. Then use this export option to regain your CSV file without any flaw.

To export your website data as a CSV file, select the “Export” option in the menu bar of WP Ultimate CSV Importer.

On the export page, select any one of the options/modules that you want to export. Suppose you forget to choose the options and click the proceed button. You will get an alert message in the display.

Types of data you can export using the plugin

WP Ultimate CSV Importer lets you export any type of data like Posts, Pages, Custom Posts, Tags, Categories, Taxonomies, Users, Comments, Images, Customer Reviews, WooCommerce, WP-eCommerce, and more.

“Custom Posts” and “Taxonomy” options have a drop-down box nearer to them. Select any one of the options for a custom post or custom taxonomy listed in the drop-down menu.

When you select “Custom Post” or “Custom Taxonomy” and you didn’t select any options listed in the drop-down menu. The downloaded CSV file will have only the headers.

Split the records when export

If you are exporting more than 1000 files, it's quite difficult to manage the CSV file. To ease this, we added the split and export method. Enable the 'Split the Record' option. This will ask you for the number of records to split and export. If you give 1000, then the first 1000 records exported in the first CSV file, the second 1000 records will be exported in the second CSV file, and on. The files will be exported like this.

Filter and export your data

We are providing six options to filter and export data as CSV files. Those options are:

  • Export data with auto delimiters
  • Export data for the specific period
  • Export data with the specific status
  • Export data by specific authors
  • Export data by specific category
  • Export data based on specific Inclusions

Let's see these options consecutively.

Export data with auto delimiters

To export the data based on the delimiters, enable this option. Some of the delimiters are listed. The listed delimiters are the colon (:), comma (,), semicolon (;), Tab and Space. If you want to use other delimiters, specify it in the “Other Delimiter” box.

Export data for a specific period

You can export data of a specific period using this option. Enable the option and choose the start and end date in the 'Start From' and 'End To' boxes.

Export data with the specific status

Select this option to filter the data according to the status such as publish, sticky, private, protected, draft, and pending. If you want to export records in all the statuses, then choose 'All' from the dropdown.

Export data by specific authors

If you want data content written by a specific author. Enable this option, in the 'Authors' drop-down menu choose the particular author from the list.
