Export CSV with links that contain semicolon

Usuario brown 2017-03-02 22:44:52

I'm trying to export a CSV from a list that has internal links to Joomla menu items which of course contain semicolons. The URL is being split across several cells in the CSV. I can only see a way to set the import separators, not the export file separators. Is there a way around this? Thanks

Hi,
you can introduce a tweak in order to change the export separator for any other character of your choice. You can override template, or, modify the source directly here:


JOOMLA\administrator\components\com_listmanager\views\listing\tmpl\exportdata.php

you'll see the line

echo $record.';';

so you can modify the separator, for ex, with # this way:

echo $record.'#';

Hope this helps, regards
