[SOLVED] Database: add articles without copy/paste?
 
Hi,

Were a newspaper with hundreds of stories, so Im wondering is there a way to add the stories without copy/paste for each individual module? Can they be just batched or something to the joomla database?

Do you know of any tutorial that addresses this issue?

Thanks much.....d.

go to phpmyadmin , your db

table jos_content

click on export

click on
Add DROP TABLE

click on go


this will give you an export/import code for that table with your existing news items values

use this to get the idea what need to be changed , if your are transferring from other joomla site than just use the export/import of that table ,

if porting from other cms or html than you would have to change values by hand

sorry for not giving exact example

Good Gawd! This seems like total Greek to me. Neo, is there any way possible you can refer me to, say, an Amazon.com book that covers this particular aspect? I was looking for an online tutorial but Im not sure of the key search terms.

I just dont get how 20 .doc files can become \drop tables\ ....d.

Mass Content is a component you might want to use to make the job easier. Use this if you dont already have your articles in a data base. You would still have to cut and paste.
