Recommended!
By , for WP 3.9.1

This actually is a Really Simple CSV importer. It handles custom post types and custom taxonomies perfectly.

I recommend it for anyone needing to import events into my This Day In History plugin and supply an example CSV for Really Simple CSV importer.

Thanks guys!

It is really simple!
By , for WP 3.9.1

It took me a bit to figure out how to integrate with ACF, but I got it and it took a lot less time that my failed attempts with other plugins. Wish I would have started here first! Nothing fancy, but it works and that's what mattered to me.

Really efficient importer!
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin did a really efficient import from a file created from a non-WordPress database. It had custom fields and images (post_thumbnails) that imported perfectly.

You do need to read the instructions to add the proper column headers, but that was simple compared to the other 3 plugins I had tried first, that kept throwing errors, or were too complex.

Thanks for the plugin. Managed to import 10000 products with post thumbnails and lot of meta data.

Worked Very Easily
By , for WP 3.9

I was surprised how easily this worked given that I left many of the post fields blank.

Worked beautifully
By , for WP 3.9

Worked perfectly!

It would be nice to have a "preview" functionality to be sure the import will work correctly -- but it's certainly not necessary.

I especially love that it works with Advanced Custom Fields - that's a lifesaver!

Thanks so much!

WORKS GREAT
By , for WP 3.8.1

This works great and fast, works with custom taxonomies and CPT's perfectly, but it is very specific in the way the delineators and line breaks are recognized. Once you comply with those requirements, it works like magic.

Elegant and Sensible - congratulations
By , for WP 3.8.1

What a pleasure to see a plugin that

  • inserts itself sensibly into wordpress, adding itself under tools > import just where it should be
  • imports the data with limited fuss, very sensibly using the column headings, making sensible defaults for missing fields instead of insisting that they are mandatory data
  • handles custom fields and custom post types as easily as they should be handled - why should there be a 'fuss'

Gets the work done!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Thanks for this great plugin. Worked perfect, and i had several Advanced Custom Fields to.
Wishlist:
1. A simple way to rerun the import and just update the posts without the need to enter post-id.

2. Some more complete examples how to construct an array that matches acf-import pattern. I saw that there was examples (none english) on this blog:
