Works for my custom posts

I use custom post types with custom fields and this is the best solution I've found to import csv data to wordpress!

Download it.
Read the ReadMe.txt.
Done.

This plug-in works. Period. I first used it a site I was running for some time, then sold. Prior to the plugin I was posting one at a time and at best I could do 20 posts an hour.

With this importer I increased my posts to 150 per hour. So instead of an 8 hour work day, I now only work 2 hrs a day. What else needs to be said?

Waste of time if you need a cheap solution - free version very restricted.

Excellent plugin

Excellent plugin, very nice work.
Needs a bit of reading and understanding the format of the csv file to import. Do your testing before using. I used it for a website with too many posts here and it worked great.
When importing many posts (more than 200) it might crash, but I think its the servers php configuration about memory limits, timeouts or maximum execution time settings.

Excellent plugin, still works even if not updated
By , for WP 3.6.1

The only issues I had getting this to work turned out to be from improperly exported csv files. I had to tell OpenOffice to quote all text fields. And then when it imported products as posts I realized I had to include the post_type column. Woocommerce product_tag and product_cat come in as custom taxonomies, and my custom fields come in just by using their names for additional columns. Sweet.

Works well

This plugin is hard to understand, but it actually works :) I use LibreOffice to create .csv files. If you copy variables like csv_post_title or csv_post_post from the plugin FAQ, don't forget to remove the empty space afrer text. If you have empty space after variables, the plugin don't work correctly. Just remove empty space after ex. csv_post_post

You definitely have to read the docs, but it has never let me down.
