I exported/imported the definition of a content type from a site to another using the Feature Module. Now I want to export all the nodes of that content type and import them in the other site. How can I do this?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.


For Drupal 7, you have 2 choices:

This module allows users to export nodes and then import it into another Drupal installation, or on the same site.

Import or aggregate data as nodes, users, taxonomy terms or simple database records.

  • I used Node Export with Features. There are also some other modules to download and install, but this is not a problem. The real challenge was to export nodes with a Photo Field. You must configure Node Export because the default setting (Drupal format) breaks Drupal and takes down the site. I found that the best method to import is to select json format and manually upload the images in the public:directory. Note: don't try the import before the upload is complete. – user1014351 Aug 28 '12 at 14:17
  • I am trying this but the export option under content or update operations is not available in this case – pal4life Jul 30 '14 at 20:57

Might be a late answer, but still I would personally consider it as the best option - please consider using migrate module https://drupal.org/project/migrate


Consider the data_export_import module.

What I like about data_export_import is that it is an all-in-one module (for export AND import of data. Whereas as with some other solutions, the import and export stages are done by separate modules, which could mean that extra work is needed ensuring compatibility of the export with the import.)


Or you could use Views data export module https://www.drupal.org/project/views_data_export for more specific exports.

You could see a helpful tutorial about that here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ssOF3nPgcfc
