    The trial is not meant to work it is meant to give you an idea of the functions available within the paid edition. It is also not updated often so the paid editon will be even more advanced. You can view a list of test blogs at http://www.webtechglobal.co.uk/eci

    and

    Today I'm adding the ability for customers to submit their paypal reference and get instance access to their download. This will replace the normal process of receiving a url by email. Partially because it is so problamatic but future versions must also be downloaded from your own account in future. So at some point you will need to register with WebTechGlobal and login anyway. This upgrade requires intigration with my shopping cart which is eStore however I can easily expand it's use for other carts. As I have said before, the customer service plugin will simply improve over time as I need it to but I do welcome suggestions or requests especially if funding.

    Yet another bait and switch plugin - claims to be a full functional plugin, looks great until you hit the bottom of the spec and find you have to part with $50 to get the actual code.

    I am seeing more and more of these advertorial plugins here on WordPress and no matter how many I report, none get removed. Really goes against everything that Matt preaches.

    Disabled. If this had been pointed out sooner, we would have disabled it sooner.

    Information about bad plugins should be sent to plugins@wordpress.org. Posting about them here doesn't mean we'll notice the post.

    Hi

    I am the developer of the plugin above.

    I am sorry for this, I do understand on thinking about it further why this is a problem. My sales dropped to zero recently and I was about to scrap the project totally. I have over 200 users including the very old working free editions. However, those free plugins took far too much of my time, the users need constant support. So I made the quick decision to disable features in the plugin. I never really thought about it much, I work flat out and fast.

    I will provide a full working CSV Importer plugin called Easy CSV Importer Free asap. My services are more about helping users, I spend morning until night on Skype, forums and email helping people fix csv files and import data. This is my way of living right now, the removal of Easy CSV Importer has resulting in few sales. If people buy the plugin, their money covers my support including customising it to suit their exact needs.

    So, I'll do my best to make this clearer, define the service as hire rather than purchase of plugin. I know I will need to get the working plugin ready before you allow it to be displayed again but I would appreciate a signal to suggest that this will be possible.

    Sorry for this issue and thank you for your time.
    Ryan

    hey ryan,

    I totally understand how much time and effort needs to go into support, definitely more than the original development.

    So good luck and like I intimated in my post earlier it looks like a great plugin, apologies for using the term "sneaky" as I am sure it was not your intention, I believed that all on wp.org was free code to a point!

    Obviously I understand that the field in which the plugin works is bound to drive more user queries than say a share button!

    and we all need to make a living

    I will check out your easy csv free when ready, and I have paid for premium code before so am not totally against it.

    Cheers

    head1ess that is very understanding of you and Marco thankyou for your comment.

    I've just uploaded a working free edition. Some of the most advanced features removed in order to avoid so many free support questions. Users will simply be told that they will need to hire me for extensive support. There is a full range of video tutorials on YouTube and more will also be added so there is enough there for people to figure it out.

    The ECI sales page has not been updated yet but it will state that the fee is for my time, they will get a better plugin and I will tweek it for their project needs, server and theme etc. It will probably be 2-3 hours maximum including CSV file Operating as I like to call it, something I do daily.

    I don't think I have restricted the free edition too much. It allows a custom design, any csv file to be used, categories, ability to test the file with various settings, a log system exists also.

    Thanks
    Ryan

    Hi

    Easy CSV Importer will work in all themes as it supports custom fields.

    I don't want to say too much because it will sound like I'm selling. Yesterday I was hired to work on a classipress installation with my plugin and my client had to update to latest version.

    All is ok.

    Thanks
    Ryan

    I cannot get it to work with Taxonomies, especially hierarchical category types.

    Hi

    Can you tell me what your trying to do please.

    What taxonomies exactly?

    The plugins latest beta allows multiple levels in the category hierarchy and multiple parents per post. It works for sure. Please ensure you refresh the Categories admin page, try creating then deleting a test category. Sometimes they are hidden until you do that.

    A new free version will be released next month also.

    Thanks
    Ryan

    I just trying to get this to work, I've been trying all day and I can't.

    The exact same settings that I had working on the test blog they have at http://www.importcsv.eu/, with this version the output simply produced blank posts, with no output from the tokens in the design editor.

    This plugin would be helpful to me and I'd consider buying, but I just can't trust it so far.

    Hi

    I did fix an issue in the Beta for the full edition that caused blank posts. Something really simple. It must have been released.

    I will update the plugin with a fix asap.

    Did you say you tried the test blog and that worked fine? That was updated with the most recent paid edition beta.

    Thanks for trying the plugin and test site. ECI is nearly finished so to speak. Just need to complete the Taxonomy panel and the plugin will have everything anyone needs.
