wasted money into pro version
By , for WP 3.9.2

a lot of trouble and not able to activate because of ioncube trouble.
ioncube works fine, installed and tested with loader-wizard.
Switched to woothemes csv-import-suite and this works great.
poor support (always same answers and instructions, not really productive) and no money back warranty.

Not what I expected, neither was it functional
By , for WP 3.9.2

I was seeking a plugin that would output a graph that could be displayed with content on a page; this plugin makes you categorize it to post type.

Furthermore, while the .CSV file did upload correctly, the plugin would not proceed past "Import Data Configuration," stating:

Error: post_title, post_content, - Mandatory fields. Please map the fields to proceed.

...even though the fields were mapped.

Very disappointed.

Doesn't work
By ,

Not only does the free plugin not export a csv file, Excel does not recognize what the file is. Lets see, I should pay 149 for the pro version based on what I have seen from the free plugin and not being able to find a way to contact the developer on their site. Right@!!!

Not compatible with ACF repeater nested fields
By , for WP 3.9

I paid for the Pro version of this plugin in good faith as it said it worked with Advanced Custom Fields.

It turned out that while it is compatible with the basic ACF plugin, it does not support any of the ACF extensions such as Repeater.

When I asked them to add this support they asked me to share the ACF source code with them and said they would charge me, ACF were not happy with me sharing their code so I didn't.

Also,you can also only choose between a comma or a semi-colon as a delimiter which for importing any posts that have content or excerpts is a ridiculous limitation.

And it did not remove the tables it had created in the database nor the files it created in the uploads folder on deleting.

I ended up buying an alternative plugin from http://www.wpallimport.com which is $60 cheaper, isn't restricted to a single site and has a far superior interface.

This plugin proved to be unusable for me and despite the initial good customer service they refused to refund my money.

Their lack of disclaimer with regard to the ACF extensions is misleading, for this and the reasons abovce I've given it 1 star.
