In an effort to mass export all my nodes, I installed Node Export and VBO. The NE project page claims that it supports VBO, but I can't seem to edit the prepackaged VBO view and add the Node Export operator. Am I missing something in terms of configuration?

I've done due diligence with searching for a potential solution, but am still looking for one.

Node Export 7.x-3.0 VBO 7.x-3.1

A few steps to check:

  • in admin/config/content/node_export, in Format to use when exporting a node check "Drupal var export"

  • in admin/structure/views, you should have a view named "Content". Edit it, and click on "Bulk operations: Content" in the Fields zone

  • in the lightbox, check Node export (Drupal var export) (node_export_drupal_action)

  • Keep in mind that VBO 7.x-3.1 doesn't include any default views anymore. You will either want to install admin_views, or create a view yourself. Mar 12 '13 at 10:29
  • @Bojan Zivanovic : You're right, that's definitely where the problem should be ! Admin_views is the missing piece !

  • @bsfoo116 That did it. You're right, it was the format I had selected. I had JSON as the format, but once I chose Drupal var export, it appeared in VBO. Thank you! Mar 12 '13 at 19:39

Even if "Drupal var export" is initially preselected in "node_export" configuration (admin/config/content/node_export), "Node export (Drupal var export)" option do not appear in "Selected Bulk operations" of view Edit interface.

Just save "node_export" settings (even if no updates made) to force Drupal variables to be saved, and Node Export option will appear.
