  1. What is the difference between Aspose Words Exporter and Aspose Document Exporter?

    I havecAspose Words Exporter installed, and ir works.

    There is just one problem: It doesn’t export the paragraph breaks and the text runs together.

    Is Aspose Document Exporter any better?

    What is the best solution to my oroblem?


    • You can use Aspose doc exporter, mentioned in the article. It will export and import the exact format in the blog post. Cheers!

  2. It would be nice if we could download plug-ins if we have a Professional rather than a Business Plan. Frustrating.

  3. I’ve been looking for this. I just wonder if I can export multiple posts at once or not? And is there any way we can export posts without using plugins?

  4. I’ve got the latet WordPress… Just installed Apose and attempted to export posts to docx format. I get this error “Invalid file”. Any thoughts?

    • Can you search the plugin from the plugin directory “Aspose DOC Exporter” instead of uploading. As we can see its working.

  5. I tried this and installed it successfully – even with just 1 blog post it does not seem to export / download anything – just bottom left I saw waiting for cache flash up but no zip… any ideas?

  6. Hello, I was looking for the solution and came across your post. You have described the steps in details, but I wonder how much this service costs. How many posts does their free plan allow to export?
    In your case, how many posts do you get from that API?
    Many thanks!

  7. How do I select the posts on other pages because as soon as i do so, it unselects from other pages? I have 1000 posts I would like to backup, but with 53 pages that’s 53 different downloads. ??

    • From the Post area, Click on the right top section Called “screen options”.

      This will open up a few options. In Pagination, input any number of the blog post you want to export through it.

      Once done, it will reload the page, and now select all the blog posts at once and select the Aspose Export file and Hit the Apply button.

  8. I did all of this and when I hit “Apply” I get the message below. Any ideas on how to help?
