A plugin to ingest and extract/create/update posts, custom posts, attachments, tags, keywords and custom post meta with csv files.
The purpose of this plugin is to parse uploaded csv files into any type of post including custom post. The ingestion engine of the plugin parses csv records into a posts by a mapping of columns that you configure in the plugin interface.
This plugin provides the functionality to upload data from the csv file into the postmeta records which themes and plugins create. This plugin also provides the ability to import images and associate them to post as attachments or thumbnails. Manage existing csv files and promote ease of use by creating presets for both postmeta and ingestion mapping.
The postmeta mapping feature automatically retrieves all of the possible postmeta fileds of the selected post type. If there is a postmeta field that doesnt show in the interface you have to ability to create a new post meta field. The ingestion interface is dynamically arranged and populated based on the post type and the values that you have provided in the configuration interface.
There is also an extraction interface that provides the ability to extract post records into a csv format. You have the option to filter the results returned by various post fields in addition to being able to specify what post fields and associated postmeta keys populate in the csv rows.
In the latest version of the plugin there is also the ability to implement the plugin hooking api the customize the flow of ingestion. For instance if you wanted to customize how a post is linked to several other posts you can do so by writing very minimal php inside of a hook function that the ingestion engine will detect.
