    I'm a little confused......I can import everything I need for a new post except the categories......I read the details on column descriptions, but I haven't been able to get categories to import.....what is the column header I should be using?

    Thanks,

    Hi

    Sorry, I've updated my documentation. The ordinary post category column should be 'category' in most installs. My documentation was from before I added support for custom taxonomies which makes things a bit more complicated.

    While this was the fault of my documentation, I highly recommend the quick start guide. By doing a small export first, and using the generated file as a template, you'll likely save yourself a headache or two. The plugin is designed to let WP/Excel do the heavy lifting, so the export first step is often crucial to get accurate field names and field order.

    Hope that helps. Let me know how you go.

    Best wishes

    Paul
