Custom XML Export
« on: October 16, 2013, 04:42:47 PM »
Is there ANY WAY to create a custom XML export?

Could I edit the Tournament Export.html template and change it to .xml and put in some tokens or something?

Thanks...

No, there's no way to make your own custom XML export.  You could certainly modify an "HTML" template to export as XML.  The file's contents are really irrelevant -- the TD doesn't care, it just replaces tokens.  But you're limited to the tokens that the export supports.

What is it you're trying to achieve?  Is there something the CSV export doesn't cover that you need?

I'm sure you have the tokens.  Just don't know how I would set it up to render the proper information.

I'm also going to try using the csv file but I need to import data to two different tables.
If I can find a way to do that via csv, I will use it.
