How to Build Your Own Export Templates

KontentMachine is the first content generation software that allowed you to build your templates for exporting content. This feature is extremely useful in the case when the tool you are using has not been covered in the predefined templates, or you are using a custom made tool.

In this tutorial, you will learn how you can build your own template and what each of the tags mean.

Assuming you have set up your campaign, and you are on the Link Settings window.

1. Click on the Build & Export button.

2. In the Template Builder panel click on the Create New button.

3. There are two main types of tags that you can use

Standard. They include:

– Titles

– Summaries

– Article Bodies (with links)

– Article Bodies without links

– Bookmark Bodies

– Resource Boxes

– Tags

– Bookmark Tags

– Categories

– About Me Snippetstemplate builder

Whenever you click on them you will see a contextual menu asking you about the type of spintax you want to use:

Unspun. If you choose that, KM will use it to place unspun/clean text

Spun. These tags include content in the so-called flat spintax. Ex. {Hi|Hello|Howdy}

Nested. When you specify this tag, KM will use nested spintax. Ex. {{Hi|Hello}|Howdy}


Advanced. Those tags will insert content for more special occasions.

5. If the submission tool does require some special separating tag/keyword between the articles in a single file then check the Custom Paragraph Separation checkbox and insert it into the text field next to it.

6. Select the extension for your file. The ones you can choose are .txt, .amr, and .csv
