URL Extractor Extension

URL Extractor allows you to extract URLs using custom tokens (Title, Post URL, Date, Status, Author, Website URL, Website Name) of any post or page from your Child Sites and export them as CSV or TXT files.

Provided search options will enable you to refine your search by:

  • Type: Post or Page
  • Status: Published, Pending, Private, Scheduled, Draft, Trash
  • Arbitrary keywords
  • Date Range
  • Child Sites

You can easily customize your output. Combining the provided tokens and custom characters, create any output structure you need.

This is often helpful for both client reports and indexing software.
