DNN / 2sxc Learn Import / Export

2sxc offers various very different types of Import / Export

  1. Export / Import Lists of Content-Items - just like importing or exporting a table. You will usually do this to manage / edit large amounts of content in Excel, to update certain columns with external data or to import content from other tools (FnL, XMod, Access, etc.) or other CMSs (Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, ...).
  2. Export / Import an entire App - this is to copy / distribute the App to other systems or to duplicate the App from a template or stating to another site
  3. Export / Import the entire Content - this is to move a site from staging to live or to duplicate a template-site
  4. Export / Import parts of an App / Content, with configuration, templates etc. - this is mostly something a web designer will do to copy certain parts into other sites or into other Apps.

This page is targeted at content-editors. For advanced import/export and data-integration topics as well as accessing SQL-data (which are usually developer topics) we'll create a separate help section.

Content Import / Export = lists of data

When all you want is to import lists of information or content - this is how...

Export / Import of entire Apps

This is rather self-explaining, so no additional documentation exists for now. 

Export / Import of the entire Site

When you want to duplicate a site, distribute a site-template with your skin or just want to move from staging to live - this should help you.  

Import / Export parts of Content / App

This functionality helps you export template-configurations and similar into an XML for re-import. Use the Import/Export tab; no further documentation exists for now. 

Advanced Import/Export Docs

You can find them in the Docs/Manuals, but this is more for developers.
