Alternative CSV Importer plugin. Simple and powerful, best for geeks.
Great plugin, and the only one for now that allows to use filter hooks on every stage of import process.
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.
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.
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.
tried a few - this worked
I was surprised how easily this worked given that I left many of the post fields blank.
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!
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.
What a pleasure to see a plugin that
