FAQ

How do I create taxnomies?

Tools > Taxonomy Import,
In the text area create taxnomies separated by a new line, e.g. :

  • Category A
  • Category B
  • Category C
What about nested taxnomies?

Great question!
In the same text area, you can create child taxnomies as well!
Each Taxonomy who has a parent is written with a ‘->’ separating parent from child, e.g. :

  • Category A -> Category B -> Category C

And for massive assignment, e.g. :

  • Category A -> Category B
  • Category B -> Category C
  • Category B -> Category D
  • Category A -> Category E -> Category F
  • Category F -> Category H

wasn’t that easy?

What slug is being set for each of my categories?

Well, the default slug is the category name with hyphens instead of white spaces and all lowercase.

What if I would like to change the slug?

No problem!
When setting a category just add the dollar-sign ‘$’ delimiter after the category name and your new slug!
e.g. :

  • Category A$foo -> Category B$bar -> Category C$cool-isnt-it
What about adding descriptions?

Easy, just add another dollar-sign ‘$’ delimiter after the category slug and wrap your description with double-quotes “”. e.g. :
(Don’t forget to escape double-quotes inside your description!)

  • Category A$foo$”this is bar!”
And if I don’t like your silly dollar-sign delimiter?

Just change it!
Just before the text area there’s a small input bar that you can put whatever delimiter you want.
Notice: currently it is impossible to use the ‘->’ sign as a delimiter.

Reviews

Fantastic

Does exactly as it says. Easy to use. FIVE STARS ================= Just one suggestion, would be great if it could EXPORT into a formula so we could use it later on a different site. EXAMPLE: Women's Clothing & Accessories -> Dresses Women's Clothing & Accessories -> Blouses & Shirts Women's Clothing & Accessories -> Jackets & Coats Women's Clothing & Accessories -> Tops & Tees Women's Clothing & Accessories -> Accessories

It just works

Worked correctly on multisite - network activated system Some spelling correction needed. However, a useful taxonomy import plugin.
