Documentation for Sophora 4

To import categories, the root element of an import XML file has to be <sophora>. This element must contain a child element <categories> which encapsulates the <category> elements. Each <category> element represents one category. The content of a <category> element has to contain the entire path of the category (path elements are separated by semicolons). If a given category already exists in the repository this category is ignored during the import process.

The following example demonstrates the XML of a category import:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<sophora xmlns="http://www.sophoracms.com/import/2.8"
         xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
  <categories>
    <category>Styles</category>
    <category>Styles;Casual</category>
    <category>Styles;Catwalk</category>
    <category>Styles;Feminine</category>
    <category>Styles;Formal</category>
    <category>Styles;Printed / Embellished</category>
