Import Pages From XML

This ProcessWire module allows you to import and parse XML files (using xpath) to create or update pages.

Screencast

Settings


After successfull installation go to Setup > Import Pages From XML to start using the XML Importer.

This module does not support all available field types. Nevertheless, I've refrained from restricting the supported field types because many of them should work by default.

Tested and working:

  • image including tag and description support
  • select
  • text
  • textarea
  • integer

The following field types will be ignored:

  • FieldsetTabOpen
  • FieldsetOpen
  • FieldsetClose

Not working:

  • file
  • repeater

Xpath Mappings


If you want to take advantage of references between fields in your xpath mapping then make sure the fields you're relating to are placed before the ones which need the relations. You can access and use any values/fields that you placed earlier in your file. Use $field_<fieldname> to match the desired value.

Example

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<songs>
    <song track="2">
        <title contact_id="1">Some song title</title>
    </song>
    <song track="7">
        <title contact_id="2">Just another song title</title>
    </song>
    <contact id="1" name="Sesmallbos" mail="info@test.org"/>
    <contact id="2" name="Sebigbos" mail="info@exam.ple"/>
</songs>
  • context: //song
  • field order: title, track, contact_id, contact_name, contact_mail
  • contact_id must be placed before contact_name and contact_mail
  • first get contact_id : title/@contact_id
  • then use that value as relation : //contact[@id="$field_artist_id"]/@name as well as //contact[@id="$field_artist_id"]/@mail

“We chose ProcessWire because of its excellent architecture, modular extensibility and the internal API. The CMS offers the necessary flexibility and performance for such a complex website like superbude.de. ProcessWire offers options that are only available for larger systems, such as Drupal, and allows a much slimmer development process.” —xport communication GmbH
