When the project is done and you want to send it on site – you need to do an export of the project. According to CMS there are several types of project’s export. What exact types of export and its peculiarities you can look at the page of CMS peculiarities based on which you use (you can drop on this page using a link from the list of supported platforms).

We view the process of export in this article on the example of the most popular CMS — WordPress. We will use regular export, such as the most popular type of export Zebroid.

The export of files consists of several stages:

  • The export of the project in Zebroid
  • Uploading of folder with pictures on the server (if they are)
  • The import of prepared by the program file with articles through the admin of
  • WordPress.

For others CMS (for example DLE) you need to upload at first the module of import generated by the program files. There is no such need in WordPress as the needed module is “from the box” or CMS will propose to upload it during the first try of using.

The first step is very simple, you need to choose the item of menu Project -> Export -> WordPress or click on the big bottom Export in the users menu and choose in list of WordPress. If the project is very big — it is recommended to use the option of “Limit the size of generated file”. In this case Zebroid will divide the project on several parts and generated some files, which you will need to upload by turn.

The program will ask to show the folder in which it will export the project and the name of file.

This folder you need to upload using FTP. You need upload this folder using FTP. You need to upload the folder with pictures to route catalogue with CMS.

Zebroid will upload pictures by FTP by himself, goes to admin, choses a needed file and clicks on buttom Import.
