Chief Editors and Managers have the option to export content as a full media
archive (.zip) or an Open Document (.odt). The zip archive will contain all items in the container, including Silva XML, Silva Assets, and other Zope content.
For extensive non-Silva content, a Zope export (zexp) files may be a better approach, but it requires a Manager to perform it.
Fig. 1. Export form for Chief Editors
- include sub publications
- This option determines whether sub-publications will be taken along in the export.
- export only newest versions?
- You can export only the last (possibly unpublished) versions. This option is checked by default. It you uncheck it, all versions will be exported. This option only affects the export of textual content.
- select an export format
- For the export format you can choose between a zip format (default) or an Open Document (.odt). format. The Open Document format doesn’t export any assets, only textual content.
Single documents can also be export/imported by going to the document’s export screen via its publish screen.
