WP Ultimate CSV Importer Plugin
[resolved] Custom fields not imported in 2.7.0? (8 posts)

    Hello

    I'm using Ultimate CSV importer version 2.7.0, and have created a custom post type and some custom fields using the Types plugin version 1.2.2.

    I have a custom type for book authors, and their surname as a custom field.

    When I try to import a CSV, I see the custom post type, and I match the columns in my CSV to fields like:

    - Author name: post-title
    - Description: post-body
    - Author surname: custom field wpcf-author-surname

    When I click on import, the authors are created in the correct custom post type, the title and the body are created correctly, but the custom field is not being populated.

    Do you know what can be the reason for this?

    Mikel

    Hi Mikel,
    Did you map custom fields using Add custom field option from drop down? Map all your custom fields using Add custom field and name it if not exist already. Or map it with existing custom fields with CF as prefix from drop down.

    Hi

    I did what the OP suggested in this post:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/1-posts-with-no-valid-useridname-are-assigned-admin-as-author

    Even though the custom field already existed, if I selected it from the dropdown, the values were not added. If I selected "add custom field", and in the cf name entered one that already exists (the one I wanted and that I was trying to select from the dropdown) it worked.

    As I think it's related to the thread I linked above, maybe you can close this thread and we continue the conversation in the other one.

    New version is released with improvements and fixes. Now the custom field feature must work. Please upgrade and leave your feedback.

    Hi,

    I am using latest version of this plugin but custom fields not importing from csv. I selected the correct field with CF prefix but it is not working.

    I am currently using on multi-site but tested on single installation with same error.

    Thanks

    Are you using any custom field plugin? This issue may be because some different CF plugin. It is well tested for wp default and custom post type UI custom fields. Other plugins are not supported.

    @sjaved, try start a new thread instead of hijacking a resolved thread. It is hard to track here.
