Importing and Using Custom Class Extensions and Extended Attributes

With the addition of the new export and import features for extended attributes and custom class extensions in Mura 6.2, recreating or editing custom content data structures is easier than ever. Exported subtype and attribute definitions are easily imported into any other Mura site, or edited and reimported to extend existing functionality.

Importing Content in Mura 6.2

With the addition of the new Export Content and Import Content features, copying content from one Mura site to another, even a site in a separate Mura instance altogether, requires only a few quick operations inside the familiar Site Manager interface. Exported content can be imported as the child elements of any content item, allowing for versatile duplication options even within the same Mura site.
