Drupal Export Guide

Among the many export options available to transfer your project’s content outside of Jumpchart is Drupal, one of the most widely used content management systems in the world.

Note: The Drupal Export feature is only available for projects owned or created by accounts with Super, Freelancer, or Deluxe status.

Please note, this guide is aimed at importing your Jumpchart project’s content into a fresh Drupal installation. If you are planning on merging your Jumpchart content with an existing Drupal installation please do so carefully and make sure you have up-to-date backups of all your site files and your database. Regardless, it’s a good idea to back up your existing site before importing.

Exporting Content from Jumpchart for Drupal

You can export your project to Drupal by selecting “Drupal” from the export drop down in the content section. In the resulting download folder, you’ll find several simple files.

ReadMe Text

The ReadMe.txt will contain instructions on how to import your Jumpchart project into Drupal:

1. Move the `jumpchart-import.php` file and the `jumpchart-resources` folder that came with this .zip to the root folder of your Drupal installation.
2. Open your browser and point it to the `jumpchart-import.php` file (as in http://mydrupalinstallation.com/jumpchart-import.php).
3. The import will then begin. Depending on the size of your project, this may take a few minutes.
4. For security and privacy reasons, we highly recommend you delete the files in this .zip as soon as the import is complete.

The Import Code

The Jumpchart-import.php file will contain all the information you’ll need to actually import your project into Drupal. Use this later during the install process.


If you had any files uploaded to your project, they’ll be included in this folder.
