The main purpose of J2XML is to share content between different websites on Joomla!. To do this, a feature is made available to export the content to an XML file. A new Export button is added to each content manager.
Exporting content is very simple, just select the items you want to export and click on the Export button.
You can export articles by category directly from the category management panel.
- Select whether images will be exported in base64 format.
- Select whether users will be exported.
- Select whether contacts will be exported.
- Select whether export file will be compressed.
J2XML is a web application and as such is sensitive to the limits of the server on which it runs. Mainly limits in terms of memory and execution time. For this reason, if you need to export several articles, it is recommended to disable the export of images and proceed to export via FTP.
