#3688 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Exporting as XML should have an option to send the .xml file gzipped to e-mail

Description

Would be really usefull to have it gzipped and sent to an e-mail address.
Also, another usefull feature would be to have it automatically send to your e-mail address every day at a defined hour (cron-job like).

Oh, and perhaps even the import function should support gzipped xml files?

I don't think you can handle the gzipped files with php. It has to be installed on the server for it to work. Extracting them at least.

-1 on sending to email. Many people have quotas on email which will prevent recieving large attachments. And such a situation would provide no warning to the user if that was the case, so he/she might think there was a big thus producing more tickets about a non-WP issue. :-)

  • Milestone 2.4 deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Based on technosailor's feedback, marking WONTFIX for now.

Znuff, possibly create a new ticket just for the gzip part .

WORKAROUND

Consider the functionality of the wp-db-backup plugin . Though not equivalent, it may meet your needs.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
