Custom Content Type Manager

    I create several custom types and many custom fields by Custom Content Type Manager. I'd like to know whether it is possible to export content of one or several custom fields to excel? Then I can do some statistics.

    Thanks

    CCTM does not come with a built-in tool for exporting data. It uses the built-in WordPress tables and columns, so you can find something online that will help you do this.

    Thanks, fireproofsocks. Can you introduce some plugins which can help do it and is compatible with CCTM?

    No, you'll have to google it yourself. CCTM uses the same tables and columns as WP, so there shouldn't be any compatibility issues. If you need to do reports on data like this, then I would recommend you use something other than WordPress -- the table patterns used by WordPress (and many other CMS's) make it easy to add custom fields, but it makes it very difficult to do certain reporting queries. An alternative might be the POD plugin: it adds custom tables to support extra data, so it might be able to support your reporting queries.

    Thank you for your information, fireproofsocks
    I tried POD and found its "extra data" you mentioned is just what I'm looking for, but it doesn't include some functions I need which is included in CCTM.
    So is it possible that CCTM can achieve it by some extra codes?

    Everything is possible. But it's not practical to develop stuff like that unless I have a paying project to do it. I could literally spend 12 hours a day doing nothing but develop the CCTM, but getting $20 donations once a month is a bad way to live.
