Import posts from CSV files into WordPress.
Read the ReadMe.txt.
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, 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.
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.
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.
Doesnt work this plugin,
I couldnt even import a single post using examples.
Tried using WP Ultimate CSV importer first, but it had no support for custom taxonomies (unless I wanted to pay $250, of course).
This plugin worked beautifully the first time! No complaints at all!
This plugin supports more wordpress features than any other csv importer that I could find (custom post types, custom taxonomies, custom fields).
My only request would be that the plugin author add some hooks to the source code! I have been working for hours on customizing the formatting of the data that gets imported, and have been able to do almost everything using really roundabout hook methods. I'm on the last task I need to do, and it turns out I will need to edit the source code of the plugin. A hook to filter the post before it's inserted, and hooks before and after the import would have saved me tons of time.
Otherwise this plugin works great!
