    Is it possible to export certain rows via csv export on the front end?
    Ex: lets say i have a list with rows;
    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.
    5.

    Is there a way to only export rows 1, 3, and 5? I have only been able to export all rows.

    You can filter your list and export with "Include filters"=YES.

    If you want to export random records you could
    add a php list plugin and do the export in your php script
    or
    create an additional "export field", add two update column plugins to set this element in list view, filter on this element, export with "Include filters"=YES

    Hey troester,

    Thanks for the reply!

    My php skills aren't the best so I think the best way for me to do it would be your second option.
    Could I ask you to elaborate a bit. What do you mean by additional "export field"?

    thanks

    Some element (show in list view) which you can set with the update column plugins and than use for filtering.
    It's a bit roundabout but I don't know a better way
