Advanced CSV Importer plugin to import posts, pages, custom posts with custom fields with few simple clicks
Fiding this plugin made me happy because it does the same thing i should did manually with using a lot of time.
This is a good plugin ... 'does what it says on the tin'. Has a few limitations on custom taxonomies etc. on the free version, but there are workarounds, though they add a little to the time it takes to publish stuff correctly, or the PRO version - I believe - eliminates the need for them. [ Would happily upgrade, but can't affords to right now! :-( ]
HOWEVER (feedback for the author) while I have no objection to promoting etc. the PRO version, because of the 'banner ad' that appears on the plugin list page and the fact that it can't be turned off (or if it can be, how to is not obvious) I've regretfully uninstalled it. I don't use it often / regularly, so will re-install if / when I need it. There is, of course, the possibility that I'll look at something else offering similar functionality when I do.
I was thinking of writing something similar, until I came across this plugin. Thanks :)
I had to move ~100 business listings from Joomla (SOBI2) to WordPress (Business Directory Plugin). This plugin saved sooooooo much time. Thanks so much!
It is exactly what I needed! I must put a giant excel spreadsheet online as a directory through WordPress. Now I can massage the data and use the plugin to import them wholesale into WordPress as many times as I want :D
3.5 with major performance improvement to avoid any time out issues and easy step by step with bootstrap UI.
3.3.1 is multi site supported now. Only Users import needs some fix. For now it is disabled for multi site mode. Thanks for all who supported us so far with their valuable feedback, rating and support.
The support from smackcoders is excellent.
It is such a change not to have days/weeks even for a useful response.
10 out TEN in my opinion!
And an excellent plugin to go with it all - what more can you ask for!
Big uploads take a while so be patient - but it works! Imported all my custom fields AND correctly uploaded/assigned a featured image for a custom post type. Thanks!
Plugin looks better at first glance; is wp_ultimate_csv_importer.php still being used? If so, it still has some of the same problems as I mentioned above. Thanks for taking the time to move towards a better standard in SmackImpCE.php!
Very handy plugin. I built a website for an association, with 300+ members personal details. The data had to be uploaded from a CSV file, and inserted into a custom post type, with custom fields matched up. This plugin did a great job.
I was particularly pleased that it was able to insert data into custom taxonomies, not just post categories. Good to see you'd added that feature.
I'd like to see a facility to do this in reverse and export data from custom post types, fields and taxonomies back into CVS. I'd pay for a plugin that could do that.
Only problem I've experienced was that it appeared to time out on larger amounts of data. It had actually inserted everything, but it was worrying at the time. Suggestion: maybe give a bit more feedback during insertion, or maybe split larger amounts of data into several processes.
