5 As a user, you can export a single wiki page or a set of wiki pages into several formats. To perform a page export click on "Export" in the "More actions" menu, then click "Export as PDF".

13 In addition, Admins can also export all the pages of the wiki through the [[Import/Export Admin feature>>platform:AdminGuide.ImportExport]].
14
15 {{warning}}
16 Right now we don't have any user interface for exporting an arbitrary set of wiki pages. This is a [[work in progress>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-1289]]. However it's possible to export a set of pages by following the instructions below for each export format, through some custom URLs.
17 {{/warning}}
18
19 = PDF Export =
20
21 Starting with XWiki 3.1, PDF Export has also an UI interface to manage the PDF Export
22
23 {{image reference="pdfExportOptions.png"/}}
24
25 To export a page as PDF use the action menu as explained above or use the following type of URL:
26
27 {{code language="none"}}
28 http://server/xwiki/bin/export/Space/Page?format=pdf
29 {{/code}}
30
31 To export several pages as PDF use the following type of URL (see the ##pages## parameter below):
32
33 {{code language="none"}}
34 http://server/xwiki/bin/export/Space/Page?format=pdf&pages=Admin.Page_A&pages=Admin.Page_B&pages=Admin.Page_C...
35 {{/code}}
36
37 In addition the following URL parameters can be added to refine what should be exported:
38
39 * ##pages##: there can be several such parameters, each representing a page to export. For example: ##&pages=Main.WebHome&pages=Blog.WebHome##.
40 {{info}}When ##pages## parameters are specified, the current document specified in the URL isn't used{{/info}}
41 * ##includechilds##: the value is a number specifying the depth of children pages to include in the PDF export. For example ##&includechilds=2## will include all children pages of the page to export, all its children (i.e. pages which have the page as its parent) and all the children's children.
42 * ##includelinks##: the value is a number specifying the depth of linked pages to include in the PDF export. For example ##&includelinks=2## will include all pages linked from the page to export and the links in the linked pages.
43 * ##pagebreaks##: if the value is set to ##1## then a page break is inserted between all exported pages.
44 * ##comments##: if set to ##1## then also export the comments.
45 * ##attachments##: if set to ##1## then also export the attachments (only if they are images).
46
47 {{info}}
48 Notes:
49
50 * It's also possible to [[customize how the generated PDF looks like>>platform:AdminGuide.Configuration#HCustomizingthePDFexportLook26Feel]].
51 * There's also a contributed panel that provides [[an UI for PDF Export options.>>extensions:Extension.PDF Export Panel Application]]

54 = ODT Export =

56 {{info}}
57 ODT Export is available starting with XWiki 6.3.

61
62 If you configure your wiki to work with an office server ([[LibreOffice>>http://www.libreoffice.org/]] or [[OpenOffice>>http://www.openoffice.org/]]) as described in the [[Office Importer Application>>extensions:Extension.Office Importer Application]] you'll notice a new entry in the export modal popup (as long as you are connected to the office server).
63
64 {{info}}
65 You can tweak the export URL to export to other office formats supported by your office server. For instance ##/xwiki/bin/export/Sandbox/WebHome?format=doc## exports Sandbox.WebHome page to Microsoft Word's proprietary DOC format.
66 {{/info}}
67
68 = RTF Export =
69
70 The RTF export works in the same manner as the PDF export.
71
72 {{info}}XWiki 6.2{{/info}} Similar to the ODT export, you need an office server started to see the RTF export option.
73
74 = XAR Export =
75
76 The XAR export allows exporting pages in the internal XML format used by XWiki. This is the format that you can use to [[Import/Export>>platform:AdminGuide.ImportExport]] pages and applications into/from XWiki instances.
77
78 To export a page as a XAR use the action menu as explained above:
79
80 (((
81 {{image reference="ExportFlamingoXAR.png"/}}
82 )))
83
84 A tree will be displayed to allow you to chose children pages that you want to export along with the current page. Starting with XWiki 11.10 you can filter the tree to exclude extension pages (e.g. //Created pages//, //Created and modified pages// or //All pages//). Check out the [[Administration Application>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application#HExport]] for more information about the export tree.
85
86 {{info}}
87 Naturally, this tree is not displayed if the current page is terminal, which means it cannot have children.
88 {{/info}}
89
90 Notes:
91
92 * The "Export XAR" option will only appear if you are logged in with an admin user.
93 * To import back a XAR file, you also need to be an admin user and use the [[Import section in Administration>>Documentation.AdminGuide.ImportExport]]
94
95 == Advanced ==
96
97 You could also use the following type of URL (note that the ##Space/Page## part in the URL is ignored and the Export action only takes into account the ##pages## Query String parameter):
98
99 {{code language="none"}}
100 http://server/xwiki/bin/export/Space/Page?format=xar&pages=Space.Page
101 {{/code}}
102
103 In addition the following URL parameters can be added to refine what should be exported:
104
105 * ##pages##: there can be several such parameters, each representing a pattern of pages to export (prior to XWiki 6.3, only fixed page names could be specified, not patterns). Here is the format of an export pattern:(((
106 {{code language="none"}}
107 wikiid:pageFullNamePattern
108 {{/code}}
109
110 * ##wikiid##: the name of the wiki from where to get the wiki pages
111 * ##pageFullNamePattern##: the full name pattern of the page based on [[SQL "LIKE" comparator>>http://www.techonthenet.com/sql/like.php]]. Remember that the character {{{%}}} has to be converted in {{{%25}}} in an URL.
112 )))
113 * (Since {{info}}10.9RC1{{/info}}) ##excludes##: there can also be several such parameter, each representing a pattern, or list of pages associated to a ##pages## pattern. The format is the same as for pages except all special characters must be encoding in the URL. Also, as the parameter is attached to a ##pages## parameter, be careful with the order. See the examples below.
114 * ##name##: the name of the exported XAR file. If not specified, a default name will be used.
115 * ##history##: if defined then also export the page's history. Example: ##&history=true##
116 * ##backup##: if defined then the XWiki document author of each page remains the same as the one exported when reimporting into an XWiki instance.
117 * ##author##: if defined, specifies the author's name in the XAR export which can later be viewed when reimporting into an XWiki instance.
118 * ##description##: if defined, gives a description added to the XAR export which can later be viewed when reimporting into an XWiki instance.
119 * ##license##: if defined, specifies the license to the XAR export which can later be viewed when reimporting into an XWiki instance.
120 * ##version##: if defined, specifies the version of the export to the XAR.

158 = HTML Export =
159
160 {{info}}
161 HTML Export is available starting with XWiki Entreprise 6.3.
162 {{/info}}
163
164 The HTML export allows exporting wiki pages as static HTML pages independent from the XWiki engine. All pages are exported in view mode. That way you can export a whole space containing documentation and access it on your computer without any web server. The export is done with the current skin.
165
166 To export a page as HTML use the action menu as explained above:
167
168 {{image reference="ExportFlamingoXAR.png"/}}
169
170 A tree will be displayed to allow you to chose children pages that you want to export along with the current page.
171
172 The HTML export is packaged as a ZIP. Here's an example of its content and how it's organized:
173
174 {{image reference="htmlexport-content.png"/}}
175
176 A basic index page is also generated and provides a list (and links) of all pages that have been exported. For example:
177
178 {{image reference="htmlexport-index.png"/}}
179
180 == Advanced ==
181

184 {{code language="none"}}
185 http://server/xwiki/bin/export/Space/Page?format=html
186 {{/code}}
187
188 In addition the following URL parameters can be added to refine what should be exported:
189
190 * ##name##: the name of the generated Zip file.
191 * ##description##: the comment in the generated Zip file.
192 * ##pages##: there can be several such parameters, each representing a pattern of pages to export. Here is the format of an export pattern:(((
193 {{code language="none"}}
