Grunion Contact Form
Help with exporting as CSV (2 posts)

    I've emailed Automattic about this, and they gave me this answer:

    Grunion itself doesn't have a CSV export, but there are several
    WordPress CSV export plugins available. Since Grunion stores messages
    as a standard WordPress custom post type, it's likely they'd be
    exported by those plugins (though I haven't tried myself). If not it
    would probably be easy to adapt one of them to do the job.

    I'm confused as to what a "standard wordpress custom post type" is.
    How do I go about exporting the information to a CSV file?
    I've contacted Automattic later, but haven't gotten a response.

    Did you ever solve this? The new version mentions "Fix for export/import issue" in the change log (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/grunion-contact-form/changelog/) but I haven't seen anything built-in.

    A standard WP custom post type (CPT) is just a standard way of storing data in the already built WP database tables. It's explained in detail at http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Types but basically a CPT lets you add all sorts of post types to go with Post, Comment, and Page, which are the defaults. Grunion creates one called "Feedback" to store the data so it will Export under Tools -> Export. That just creates an XML file, so you would need something like a plugin to make it a CSV file.
