CSV Importer
Custom Post Type Taxonomies Not Importing (6 posts)

    When I use a custom post type, the csv_post_categories and csv_post_tags columns are pretty much useless, as it doesn't assign the category/tags like it does with the standard post type.

    Is there any way to do this?

    hey there...
    i'm using the csv_ctax_taxonomy-name format and it's adding the custom categories to the custom taxonomy, but it's not attaching the custom tax to the CPT.

    thoughts?

    you need code for that. (register_taxonomy, etc)
    Simply adding the data won't make the connection.

    It's very disturbing ! No one is able to say how we mapping a custom taxonomy field ! This plugin is suppose to make it done.

    Same thinks for me. I have 2 taxonomy attach to a post.
    My taxonomie are already registered and working.

    Where i making the mapping for the corresponding tax fields ?
    It's not tag, neither category. Should i use custom field ?

    Plus .. csv_ctax_(nameoftaxonomy) what is that ? a name of column in a CSV ? Ok. So i did it, and so ? Where i map that ? Is it taking it automaticly ? csv_ctax_(nameoftaxonomy).

    I suppose developper wanna sell the pro version and to go as less possible information to use the free version. I very very desapointed !

    @groupewibi : I doubt the developer of this plugin wants to sell a pro version as it hasn't been updated since 2011 :)

    From the readme.txt :

    Once custom taxonomies are set up in your theme's functions.php file or by using a 3rd party plugin, csv_ctax_(taxonomy name) columns can be used to assign imported data to the taxonomies.

    Where 'columns' are the csv file columns corresponding to your custom taxonomy.
