Offering backing up whole blog

Hi, I am going to use Custom Content Dashboard Widget and have such idea, I’d like my users to see offer to download their blog’s backup once a week.

To clarify – once a week, user will see in his/her dashboard (as a widget) some text which offers him/her to download backup of his/her blog and a link of downloading.

So, how can I do this? On Export page you have to choose what you’d like to download and click on download button and I want this to be automatically (so I want a link to generate and when user clicks on this link, he/she will start downloading a backup of site (with “All Content”:wink:.

How to generate this link?

Thank you

    Hi kshengelia,

    Apart from an extensive edit of wp-admin/export.php, a core file, something you’d be best off not changing, you could easily include a link to the export page using the following:

    You could also perhaps take a look at how it’s done in export.php, and code up something similar. Displaying that in timed intervals would require a bit of custom coding as well.

    You might want to take a look at getting this posted on the job boards or seeking the assistance of a developer for it.
