What are the different room export options?
A room can be exported in three different ways. These options are available through the Export selection in the top right hand corner menu in a room application (available for room owners or administrators only).
Fronter internal room export
Exports a room to an internal Fronter format. The resulting file can only be used for import into Fronter, into any installation running on the same Fronter release.
The functionality is the same as when copying rooms through the admin tool, please see here for more information, and can be used as a backup mechanism but with the limitations described in the above mentioned article.
IMS folder content export
The selected tools/folders will be exported as a zip file adhering to the IMS Content Packaging specification (currently IMS CP 1.1.4). Contents created with Fronter tools (e.g. pages and forums) will be exported as HTML files, but e.g. tests will be in an IMS format that can be imported back again.
Resource folder content export with structure
The selected tools/folders will be exported as a zip file with the directory structure intact. Contents created with Fronter tools (e.g. pages and forums) will be exported as HTML files, and tests as XML files.
This option is suitable for batch backups or downloads, when the content is mostly in external file formats, such as images and documents (e.g. pdf, doc, ppt).
Please note: The maximum size of the generated zip file is 4GB for all three options.
