Support » Plugin: Pods - Custom Content Types and Fields » Exporting Custom Settings Page information (as CSV)

    Hi there, I’ve been scouring the Web and all of the documentation pages. And also I’ve been installing every possible Export plugin.

    I love Pods — and it works terrific for what I need. But I need to export all the information that gets set up by the Custom Settings Page.

    I’ve tried WP All Export and am assuming that the Custom Settings data gets stored in Users. But when I select that route and use the free edition, I don’t see the per user Custom Settings Data in any columns. I’m wondering if I need to buy the Pro edition of WP All Export for me to access the per-user Custom Settings information. I assumed there would be a “for free” way to get this kind of task done.

    Any help is much appreciated, John

    Oh wait. Maybe I understand the “Custom Settings” incorrectly. Is that a set of data that can apply to *all* users? Or is it only a single record?

    Specifically I’m trying to do this:

    > Users – Create and manage fields for your user/author profiles

    And it’s unclear how I can attach the schema’d data from Pods to a WP user. I thought the way to do that was the Custom Settings feature.

    I think I found the solution over here. Thanks for the great work on this plugin!

    Hmmmm. No — when I open a form with this kind of extended user pod it gives me along list of all the WP user fields plus my new additions. When I limit the list with the shortcode option to specify just my fields, it says:

    >Error: User data is required but is either invalid or empty

    when I try to submit the form. I used this kind of shortcode:

    [pods name=”User” form=”1″]

    1/ The form appears.
    2/ All of it’s blank
    3/ I minimized the fields to the ones I added
    4/ But I get the “Error: User data is required …”

    The form shortcode works fantastic for the Custom Settings. I was hoping it’d work the same way for the additional User data. I can see that the fields I add via Pods can be set through the WP-admin backend. But I was hoping to make it possible to edit from the frontend.

    I noticed that “[pods name=”User”]” does not display anything.
