Is it possible to specify the 'Root element name' and 'Top-level child element name' for XML exports ?

views_datasource allows specifying these, where views_data_export outputs

<nodes>
<node>
specified fields...
</node>
</nodes>

Or did I miss this option? (I'm using the 7.x version).

No, we base it on the base table, but there's nothing stopping us from adding this option.

1+ and a patch. I'm sorry for the SVN patch. It's just a few lines of code ;)

so I did the same as I do on other views to override the theme, but it made no difference:

<?php
// Short tags act bad below in the html so we print it here.
print '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
';
?>

<items>
<?php foreach ($themed_rows as $count => $row): ?>
  <item>
<?php foreach ($row as $field => $content): ?>
    <<?php print $xml_tag[$field]; ?>><?php print $content; ?></<?php print $xml_tag[$field]; ?>>
<?php endforeach; ?>
  </item>
<?php endforeach; ?>
</items>

The view detected the override template file, but the row items still come out as and , not and as I would like. Is there a way of doing this through templates?

Just switched to using views_datasource for what I am trying to do and it is a far simpler solution which does allow you to change the root and row items in your feed.

Re-rolled against latest git code and fixed it a bit: sites can upgrade from original module without having to re-configure each XML display.

Patch in #5 worked for me, the defaults show up correctly when no values are set.

Mindless* reroll; don't credit me.

* I did verify structure of code/changes is still the same and remove trailing space somewhere; am not familiar with the code's logic though.

#8 worked great for me; thanks for the patch!

Here's a patch, based on #8, but with tests, if the test bot likes it, I'll commit it.
