    No matter what "Data to Genreate" is selected, it only gives me blog post data.

    Do you want custom post type data or something?

    Do you see your custom post types listed in the Export to Text settings?

    Yes. And it doesn't work: just continues to give me blog posts. That's my original comment.

    If you don't see them listed, it sounds as though your CPTs are not being properly created. Take a look at the theme, plugin or code you're using to create your CPTs in the first place.

    My CPTs are listed. I select them. But it continues to only export blog post data. The CPTs are fine.
    Sorry, but your plugin is not working.

    For some reason I'm not getting your replies on this thread, but I do have them in my email:

    Did you unselect the post type?

    BTW, I'm not even selecting "Posts", though that's the data being exported.

    Weird. We'll have to look into that and fix it for the next release.

    One last thought, it could be that other selections are confusing it. Trying working with defaults as much as possible.

    All the defaults are being used, except I'm selecting a listed CPT instead of posts.

    Very odd. We'll get it fixed in the next version.

    Hey, I'm having the same issue, no matter what post type I select it's only exporting "posts"

    In this case I'm trying to export pages.

    I did find a work around for the moment, just set up your export, and instead of clicking "Download as TXT file" click the "Generate for quick copying" button and you'll get the correct data.

    Copy that into a txt file and save it.

    Then you can work with it, or open that text file in excel or whatever you're going to do.

    Any news on 'getting that fixed in the next version' ? You said it twice already - the first time was 9 months ago :( Any ETA ?

    Hahah. I know. Will schedule it soon, I promise. Donations always help motivate.

    The page export feature works if you select the "generate for quick copying" button, but if you chose "Download as TXT file" option, it's only posts.

    I bet the fix is easy.

    2.2 still experiencing this. However, when you select "Generate for quick copying" it gets all the custom post types. Only the export to file doesn't work.

    Also, FYI:

    Deprecated calls:
    Function: get_the_author_email() Used in wp-content/plugins/export-to-text/export-to-text.php on line 335. Use get_the_author_meta('email') instead. Deprecated in version 2.8.

    Argument in add_management_page() Used in wp-content/plugins/export-to-text/export-to-text.php on line 23. Usage of user levels by plugins and themes is deprecated. Use roles and capabilities instead. Deprecated in version 2.0.
