Greetings,
I have a slider on my page configured to pull data (text, image url info...) from CSV file on my server.
Is it possible to display CB field data in CSV format (text data and full image url separated by semicolon)?
So at the end I can produce an url which will read only that CSV file... where there will be nothing but field data showed in CSV format.
End result should be url like this with same formating... CSV file url
I hope I explained it clearly :)
If someone could help me... that would be great (or suggest me another solution to get to the same result)
Thanks,
Sasa

Hello,

The closest to what you want to achieve that ContentBuilder offers is the following.

ContentBuilder offers an option to add an XLS export button in the View.
That way, you can go to list view and add export the XLS with the data submitted.

This would export field names in the first line, but if you wish to have only field values, the xls template can be changed so that the labels are not displayed.

You would have to go to JOOMLA ROOT\administrator\components\com_contentbuilder\views\export\tmpl\ folder and replace there the existing "default.php" wile with the one attached.

Other than that, if this record is created based on a BreezingForms form, then you also have an option to go to BreezingForms > Manage records and download the CVS with the selected records.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

Mihaela

Greetings Mihaela,
Thanks for your help. I managed to accomplish my "simplified" goal using Breezing Forms and "attach csv file" function you suggested.
But to find a solution using ContentBuilder would be much more usefull for me.

Enabling download XML link is very useful, but instead of downloading the file when I press the link...instead of downloading, I need one one "filename.txt" to be created and saved somewhere on the server with only field values inside... so I can access that file on the web browser (to be able to have url of that file)
Asking too much ? :) ... is this possible?
Thanks for helping.

Hello again,

I understand how you would like this to work, but this isn't a default ContentBuilder feature, it does not offer that option.

If it is important for you to get it done that way, the only thing I can suggest is that you contact our form specialist GWS DESK as they can maybe help you do what you want.
You can contact them here gws-desk.com/extensions-support/breezingforms-support .

I'm glad that you have at least managed to accomplish your "simplified" goal.

Regards,

Mihaela
