CSV 2 POST Version 8 by Ryan Bayne
There is clearly a LOT of work gone into this plugin... but the time needed to figure it out is too much... already I've spent hours and I ended up deleting it. Simplifying it and making more intuitive would go a long way in making more user-friendly because at the moment its way too complicated.
You need some training in explaining simple things. You are not doing this (perhaps deliberately?). Its not even clear what stage one is in the set-up process. You have advertisements between steps. for example after I FTP my file to the correct directory - to correct location “csv2postcsvfiles" folder as the file is big - there is not way of knowing what to do next. I mean cmon.. Then you have all kinds of advertisements asking me to pay for help. :)) In one case I see payemnts of $299 or so for complete help in installation. (I wonder why one would need that help?) :)
After completing all the stepps... it finally comes down to the last step (18)... and then error: «Problem Detected - A problem was detected during the post creation process. The severity can only be established by checking logs and any posts created or expected to have been created. Feel free to contact the plugins team for free help.»
Why is there not a check after step 1???
Zara... there is clearly a LOT of work gone into this plugin... but the time needed to figure it out is too much... already I've spent hours and I ended up deleting it.

The developers of this system seem to think that the only thing you want to do with your website is import CSVs. This plugin may work... I don't know, I didn't get that far. They force you through about a 10 step process to get to the end and I lost patience when the system threw me into maintenance mode.
It is one of the most bloated, self-indulgent, and incomprehensible plugins I've ever used: kind of like irradiated, mutated Joomla component.
That said, I'm struggling to find a plugin that works, so I may be forced to come back to this one. If I do, I'll be very unhappy. It's so overkill.
