Entry CSV Export v1.0.2

By Dan Wolfgang
Posted March 27, 2013, in Entry & Page.


A plugin for Movable Type installations which provides a very basic export-to-CSV functionality for entries/pages to facilitate easier review of entry/page metadata.

  • Enables full-fidelity export of entry/page data in CSV format for those entries/pages selected from the listing screen.
  • Export selected Entries/Pages or all Entries/Pages in a given blog, or system-wide.


Unzip the download archive. Move the resulting folder to $MT_HOME/plugins/ (where $MT_HOME is your MT or Melody application directory).

If you use Git, you can do the following:

cd $MT_HOME/plugins
git clone


There is no configuration for this plugin.


At the blog, website, or system level visit Manage > Entries or Manage > Pages.

Export selected Entries/Pages by placing checkmarks next to the items to export, then from the "More actions..." drop down select "Export as CSV" then click "Go."

To export all Entries/Pages, click the checkbox in the listing header, which will select all visible objects. A new row in the listing table will appear: click "Select all xxx items," then choose "Export as CSV" from the "More actions..." drop down and click "Go." Users of Movable Type 4.3x: choose "Export this blog's entries (CSV)" from the Actions topic in the sidebar.

Depending upon the amount of data to export it could take a few minutes until you are able to begin downloading the CSV file.
