Version 3.5 causes errors in WordPress admin
By , for WP 3.8.1

I've been using this plugin for several months and it has usually worked well.

However I upgraded to the latest version (3.5) today and it is causing errors in the WordPress admin. Specifically:

  • The post editing buttons (bold, italic, link, blockquote etc...) disappear
  • Parts of the admin that require Javascript such as the comment moderation page or the post scheduling options on a new post page do not work

Disabling WP Ultimate CSV Importer Plugin makes the problem go away, re-enabling brings it back again, so I'm sure it's a problem with this version of this plugin. The problem occurs in Firefox and Chrome.

This problem aside, it's a five-star plugin.

Good, but often stop when import big file
By , for WP 3.7.1

This plugin works great, but it just import a part of my file. I have a CSV file of about 4000 posts. Each time I run, it only imports about 300-400 posts into database and timeout. I think it would be better if can import all of posts :D

Good ... ish
By , for WP 3.6.1

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.

Thanks for updating!
By , for WP 3.5.1

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!
