Importing and Exporting Books
There are multiple ways to import and export your books with Mooberry Book Manager. They are all accessed by going to Mooberry Book Manager Settings -> Import/Export.
Import from Novelist
If you have used the Novelist plugin, you can import your book information from that plugin into Mooberry Book Manager.
Import Books from CSV
If you have lots of books to add to your website, you can put all the book information into a CSV (comma-separated values) file. The easiest way to create a CSV file is with Excel or Numbers or Google Sheets.
The CSV file must be formatted in a specific way. Please see this article for more information.
If you have the Custom Fields extension, and your custom fields are in the CVS file, they will be imported as well.
If you have the Multi-Author extension, and your authors are in the CSV file, they will be imported as well.
Export Books to CSV

If you have the Custom Fields extension, your custom fields will be exported as well.
If you have the Multi-Author extension, your authors will be exported as well.
