Solved Ability for user, account to export all posts with content

Post by rocktober October 3rd 2023, 1:14 pm

Hello,

Admin for "Rocktober" https://rocktober.forumotion.eu/

We been here two years now using your very nice "free" package.

- Is there a way to, once the user-account views all their posts to export/download them and with the content of the posts?

So, not a html save-as of the "list" of posts they may link to and view in the moment; rather, what I know as a function called "user account archive". (Not just a "Profile Page" configuration - all account information, posts, all.)

So, in other words, the user views their posts and then clicks something like "export all posts with content"- and then they have a text or csv, or what ever download of all that they ever posted, or if more reasonable, limited to the prior month (30 days), or 90 days, etc. But yes, if for example someone was here for e.g. 10 years - all of the 10 years which may or may not be allot of text.



- I have read all I can find on exporting - I think I have - and this does not exist.




I see the request to download (and can not find this again! - I tripped over it in my reading - I looked and looked and don't see it now/again?):

"...

Hello account_name_ID,

You receive this e-mail because you have requested to export your account data on the forum "ROCKTOBER" - http://rocktober.forumotion.eu

To initiate the export procedure for your user account data, click on the following link :

https://rocktober.forumotion.eu/rgpd.php?view=send_password&hash=some_hash_code

You will then receive an e-mail containing a download key. This will allow you to generate the archive of your personal data.

--
Rocktober-Administration

..."


This is just a users personal data - not an archive of all of their work/posts.


- Can it be?


Thank you! We really appreciate this "free" package offering and does so much, we are glad of it as it is. However, I was just asking and to attempt to as well - engage this forum if even limited. Fortunately we don't have many "needs" as a low traffic sight (it's purpose is "Rocktober" or just October - once a year, etc.).

(I've been here about a year ago, as "Admin" but don't remember my login so created this ID for today.)

Hmmm, that's not the way my, our, Profile pages look. Maybe that's a Paid version?

I looked pretty hard Smile and don't think I'd miss that - looks well laid out, obvious and intuitive.

However, that's what I was asking - if does all that.

If you have a "superuser" type account, or want to do a test_usr_acct to have a look? That may be more productive than my screen shotting you.

- However, as you advise.

Again, we greatly appreciate the free version.

If you do login - you'll see I've "stripped" down everything - it's only about the posts concerning the "music" (eliminating the other really helps in avoiding "online-ism's" as I call it Smile ) I/we like the traditional format like that - no "coolness" options. -- That's just an aside, not relevant but wanted you-all to know some of what why we like it here so much - if matters, and likely does Smile

I did screen shots, fyi - but now see that one may only paste URL links, can't attach/upload a .png .jpg etc.

I don't have a place to house graphics with urls an don't think you be able to follow the URL's to the forum since would not have the cookie, etc., ability to view it.

I hope my response is enough or you might do a log-in to see (may be to much to ask I realize).

Thank you!

This button is only available to the account owner in their profile. Are you not trying to upload another user's data?

I was the account owner. I have several "test" accounts - none of them have that layout. It's why I did the screen shots, but can't upload them and have no way to link. That's why I suggested, do a "tst_temp_acct" ID and log in and see.

Otherwise, well, I guess that's it.

That screen shot looks like a different interface.

Unless maybe - I didn't enable that as an option in page configuration, permission?


Thank you!

(And one thing I really like about "here" is what an "admin" can't do - e.g., copy, scrape user personal data, and etc. Yes, one could manually by hand write stuff down - otherwise, no. There's many things I see "here" that keeps folks on the admin side in check. I would not expect to be able to auto-download a users posts like that - glad you say it can't be done Smile )

Hello,

Thank you.

So, it's the "Profile" in the header - not under the "Log out" drop down. For some reason I thought that Profile was only visible to "Admin". I didn't do allot of testing in "user" accounts to see the differences.


And, yes, that I think, is what I read when referring to *just personal data (thought it was personal profile data only, not posts and all) - so this - by 7 days past by 10 Oct 2023 a down load button will appear - and "all" would be downloaded, posts and all - if understanding correctly.



So there would be some "data", posts - I did a test topic (1) with one reply (locked for now) prior to your log-in.


So that one Topic and reply to it, too will come with it (regardless of ID that posts reply? - or as many as there may be over the years? e.g., 100 posts would then be downloadable with replise?


---------------------------------------------------------
Okay, so, I'll check back at the 10th of October seven days from now.

- What format might it be in if you know? - html, table, csv - just wondering.

- Oh, and the down load would be for data up to the 10th of October, or - as of today the day of Request? if you know.



Additionally - I am sorry this for me was not obvious or intuitive. It does look different from the screens posted above - since a "free" account? I am just wondering why the screen layout difference, if know why.


And the 10 days wait is a system need - any manual process involved? Again, just wondering. I've seen archiving "buttons" and they had always been immediate and in those instances one long html in a logic ordering, chronological. Had it been immediate I may have figured it out - but, that Profile link in the Header I was sure was for "Admin" so just didn't think to look there. Intuitively, the "Log out/in" drop down was all I saw for this. Anything in a "Header" position always looks more "public" than private account specific. But, that's just me I guess Smile lol!


Anyway, THANK YOU for your kind attention and response.

All forums will not look the same our forum was made with lots of codes to make the look as it is now.

Your forum is invision Version and really basic and therefore you will only see a link not a button.
This has nothing to do with if you have a paid forum or a free one.

All links and buttons do the same thing.

Well, so far - just waiting for the download button to appear, got the hash and etc. So, if an issue a separate one.

THANK YOU Smile

ps: appears since dialog here, some text has changed? or - just "seeing" it all - since not so "new" - how that goes online. Anyway, if changed the text? - result is a bit more intuitive, for me anyway. Again, best regards.
