Front-end export of entries

  1. Are there hooks/filters in place for the automating of exporting entries?

    I would like to provide the ability for some users to export entries (limited by their role) from a front-end download link.

    If you're using GF to enable post creation from the front-end, you can achieve what you're after with the Universal Post Manager plugin. It enables posts to be exported as Word docs.

  3. Nope, that's not what I'm doing. Typical entries.

    Also looking for the same type of export as the administration side (csv).

    Anyone else know?

  4. You would have to copy-n-paste code from the export.php in the gravityforms plugin folder and create your own custom export functionality. There isn't a way to call it from the frontend as it's integrated into the backend using AJAX, etc. But the code to export is contained there so you could roll your own custom export functionality by copy-n-pasting that code and reworking it.

    There is a function call called start_export() in that PHP file that does the actual export. You could copy that and then build your own custom export functionality using the contents of that function to get the data, etc.
