How to export certain fields from PHP to CSV in Wordpress?

0 votes
19 views

I am trying to export certain data from my PHP form to CSV. I can echo out to screen during testing and I can also export to CSV the static test data (stored in the $contents array) you see below. But I am stuck trying to export the certain fields that I only need to export.
This is my code

// How do I get this info into the CSV?
/*foreach ( $entries as $entry ) :  
    echo $entry['2'];
    echo $entry['3'];
    echo $entry['6'];
endforeach;*/

$csv_headers = [
    'Organisation Name',
    'Registered Charity Number',
    'Address',
    'Phone',
];

$contents = [
  [2014, 6, '1st half', 'roland@fsjinvestor.com', 0, 0],
  [2014, 6, '1st half', 'steve@neocodesoftware.com', 0, 0],
  [2014, 6, '1st half', 'susanne@casamanager.com', 0, 0],
  [2014, 6, '1st half', 'tim', 0, 0]
];

fputcsv($output_handle, $csv_headers);

foreach ( $contents as $content) :
    fputcsv($output_handle, $content);
endforeach;

Create new array with elements of $content:

foreach ( $contents as $content) :
    fputcsv($output_handle, [$content[2], $content[3], $content[6]]);
endforeach;

The output is in this form

Array (
     [0] => name
     [1] => email
     [2] => contact
     [3] => address 
    ) 
Array (
     [0] => sant
     [1] => sant@gmail.com
     [2] => 1684218942
     [3] => haryana ) 

But I want the output in this form

  Array[1] (
     [0] => name
     [1] => email
     [2] => contact
     [3] => address 
    ) 
Array[2] (
     [0] => sant
     [1] => sant@gmail.com
     [2] => 99999999999
     [3] => haryana
    )

I just wanted to see the best way to securely accomplish this task. When we want to update a DB we upload to a writable directory instead of writing it directly to MySQL, I don't like having writable directories if possible.
Is there a right or better way to accomplish this?

I have moderate level PHP programming skills. I am also interested in merging those skills inside of the WordPress app. With their advanced responsive design themes and many other functions it seems like a good idea. I have tried loading some PHP plug-ins in WP – but I don't seem to get them to do more than basics.

Can anybody help me on how I can get started working with PHP/MySQL inside of the WordPress app?
