I need to export blog entries from Drupal to a XML RSS feed or a CSV file. I have spent countless hours trying to export it, however, no results whatsoever. I have created a new view based on the defaults of the Blog node and have set the following parameters:

  • Style: RSS Feed
  • Row style: node
  • Items to display: 25
  • Path: latestblogs/feed
  • Attach to: Blog page

The feed page does work, however, none of the entries are appearing. What do you think is the issue?

RSS settings

  • Can you post pictures of your view configuration? Is this Drupal 7 or 8? – Kevin Feb 17 '17 at 15:00
  • @Kevin I believe this is version 6. Let me add the screenshot. – Jose Feb 17 '17 at 15:07
  • Drupal 6? Now that's a name I haven't heard in a loonnng time. vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/4/4e/… – Kevin Feb 17 '17 at 15:09
  • Interesting.... I don't necessarily see anything wrong in the view config here. Is the RSS page just totally blank, as in no underlying markup? Are there any server errors or logs? – Kevin Feb 17 '17 at 15:20
  • @Kevin it's just completely blank. – Jose Feb 17 '17 at 15:30

If you want to export a View as XML or CSV, you will want Views Data Export.

Edit: now that I know this is for Drupal 6, you will have to dig to find the releases for 6.x on the project page. Here they are.

  • Thanks for that! I have tried most of the latest beta releases for version 6, however, they're not listing in the Modules page. – Jose Feb 17 '17 at 15:37
  • It doesn't appear in the list of modules whatsoever? That's odd. I do recall using it in 6.x for report exporting. – Kevin Feb 17 '17 at 15:47
  • Nope. I have "views exporter" though. I am guessing that's different, right? – Jose Feb 17 '17 at 15:53
  • It should definitely say Views Data Export, as that is what is listed in the module info file – Kevin Feb 17 '17 at 16:08
  • Strange. I'll try an earlier release. – Jose Feb 17 '17 at 17:06
