Import posts from CSV files into WordPress.
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
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!
What could be nice is to be able to tag a post as being sticky too.
I had a HARD time figuring this out (I ended up creating my spreadsheet in excel, copying it to google docs and downloading it as a CSV file from there...). But now it works and it's going to save me a TON of time. Thank you :)
