Too much basic
By , for WP 4.1.1

it doesn't allow to filter for published content or not. Doesn't allow to filter for category. And the exported output is not recognized as compatible from excel.

The real mark could be a 5.5/10 but I prefer to make clear to the WP users and to the plugin author that more effort is needed.

.xlsx file can't be opened
By , for WP 4.0.1

And the content of the .xls file is just plain html table.

Works well for me

Did exactly what it was supposed to do. Used on 10 separate sites.

Nothing
By , for WP 4.0

Creates a file that Excel cannot open either xls or xlsx
So no idea if the info is even there.
Wasted too much time already.

This doess not work

Just froze and never ran.

Worked perfectly for me!
By , for WP 3.9

I just needed a list of page names and permalink URLs. This intranet site is about 1600 pages and no posts. The plugin worked perfectly on WP 3.9. It also exported out the body copy, date, author, categories and tags which I didn't need, but it's no problem to remove them from the spreadsheet.

I agree that it could use some additional features, but for what I needed it for it worked very well. Thanks for saving me a ton of headaches!

Are you kidding me? exporting name of field and nothing more... no custom fields and etc...

XLSX doesn't work with Excel 2010
By , for WP 3.7.1

Was very disappointed with this plugin, as exporting to XLSX produces a nonfunctional file. Export to XLS produced a number of merged cells that were a colossal pain to rectify.

Should really be called "export to HTML table"
By , for WP 3.6.1

This is a great idea (so two stars for trying) but not very well executed. What this plugin really does is generate an HTML table and save the file as either XLS or XLSX. Excel tries to parse most files it's given, and it's possible that older versions of Excel load those files quite happily. All I can tell you is that Excel 2013 barfs entirely on the XLSX-named file, and for the XLS-named one it opens the file after showing a "do you want to recover information from this corrupted file" message. So I guess you do get the data eventually if that's satisfactory.

Very basic

It does recognise custom posts types. And will export comments. But doesn't export posts' custom fields.
