Overview

Medma Export/Import CMS Contents

This extension automates the process of creating CMS pages & Static blocks from stage to live server.

Purpose

As a Magento developer, when working with Static Block & CMS Content, we often follow this process:

  • Make Static Blocks & CMS Pages on development server.
  • Ask for client approval.
  • Make them all over again for Live site
  • As this CMS content grows, this process becomes time consuming, somewhat boring, if you are a developer.
    So we wrote this little extension, to import/export CMS content(Static blocks & CMS Pages).

    For us, it proved a nice utility tool, Now, we can simply export CMS content from our development server & simply import it on Live. We are pretty sure that it will prove helpful to many Magento Developers out there as well as Merchants.

    Features:

    1. No core file changed.
    2. Export CMS Pages
    3. Export CMS Static Blocks
    4. Import CMS Pages
    5. Import CMS Static Blocks

    Supported Features:

    1. Works on Magento 1.6 and above

    Installation:

    1. Install Extension Using Magento Connect
    2. Log out from admin and log in admin again.
    3. Navigation to CMS -> Manage Pages, either export all the pages or select specific and then using the actions drop-down to export those and it is exported in folder var/export/cmspages.csv
    4. Navigation to CMS -> Static Blocks, either export all the static blocks or select specific and then using the actions drop-down to export those and it is exported in folder var/export/cmsblocks.csv
    5. For importing navigate to CMS->Manage Pages and click on the Import Pages button. This will import the csv kept at /var/import folder.

    Further Instructions:

    In case you receive exception
    "System has same page_id/block_id but different identifier for page/block column in your csv. Overwrite avoided."
    This exception is inserted knowingly to avoid accidental overwrite of any existing CMS content due to CMS import. To avoid this exception, check below:

    Terms:
    Old Magento => Magento from which you exported the CSV.
    New Magento => Magento to which you wish to import the CSV.
    page_id => extension uses this value to update existing CMS pages.
    block_id => extension uses this value to update existing CMS blocks.

    Solution:
    1. Export CSV from old magento.
    2. Remove all values from page_id column.
    3. Go to CMS page/block grid in your new magento(CMS -> Pages OR CMS -> Blocks). There you'll be able to see page_id/block_id values of existing pages/blocks of your new magento.
    4. Check your csv, in case it has any row with the information of an page/block that already exists in new magento.
    5. Make sure you fill in the correct page_id value in the CSV from new magento.
    6. Import CSV

    Make sure you do a full export so that you have a back-up of the content before any import.
