Tool for importing / exporting items to / from K2 5 years 5 months ago #58680

I wrote a small tool to import K2 content from a CSV file and to export K2 data to a CSV file.
www.individual-it.net/en/Joomla/

Its possible to import all fields including "extra fields", userids, images, tags, galleries, categories and attachments.

The file must have a heading row. Text delimiter: ' " ' field separator: ','
For "Multiple Select" Fields use also "," to separate the options e.g.: "option 1, option 3"

To have a example-file to first an export and check the documentation.

Here is user manual
If you like it please vote for it or write a review

If you have problems:
  1. check the old thread in the forum
  2. check if you use the most actual version
  3. check the minimum requirements
  4. post here if you still have a problem - and report:
    • the joomla version
    • the OS version
    • the K2 version
    • the K2 Import / Export tool version
    • the exact problem ("It doesn't work" - doesn't help anybody)

To stay up do date and informed follow me on twitter and have a look at this topic.

Hi,
please read the documentation: www.individual-it.net/Instructions-for-K2-Import-Component.html

You basically can create some items in K2 and the go to Components -> K2 Import / Export and export your existing items then you would have example file.
Or you check the example file in the documentation.

sorry I do not understand your problem.
When you upload and import the CSV you should have new items in K2.

The extension just works with Joomla 1.5 and K2 2.4.x

Re: Tool for importing / exporting items to / from K2 5 years 5 months ago #58685

any plans to update to 2.5?

Yes I'm going to do that - but as always I cannot tell a date :-)

Are they somewhere informations about how the DB changed between 2.4 and 2.5?
and are there differences between the versions of Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.7?

Re: Tool for importing / exporting items to / from K2 5 years 5 months ago #58687

I havent seen any documentation on this yet. Guess we will have to take the installation scripts of 2.5 apart to see if there are any modify table's in it and also if there is script to detect if upgrading or not
