CSV Import for WordPress
[resolved] Automatically map CSV columns to fields (5 posts)

    I think it'd be a huge UX improvement if the plugin would automatically map the CSV column name to the dropdowns during the import process. If the column name is "post_title", then the "post_title" dropdown should automatically be selected.

    That would make the import process 10 times faster, since I wouldn't have to click on each individual dropdown field. If I've got a CSV with 20 columns, and I have to run the import 4 times to get it right, then that's 80 clicks that would be saved.

    All it takes is changing line 226 of wp_ultimate_csv_importer.php from:

    <option value ="<?php print($key1);?>"><?php print($key1);?></option>


    <option value ="<?php print($key1);?>"<?php if( $value == $key1 ) print( ' selected="selected"' ); ?>><?php print($key1);?></option>

    Thank you for the suggestions. I have added this to next milestone. Issues raised here are less monitored. For timely response post your issues here in future at http://code.smackcoders.com/seo-author-snippet-wp-plugin/issues.

    Thanks for the responses. In the future I'll try to remember that you have a separate bug tool, but to be honest, it's pretty difficult to keep track of which plugins use the WP.org support forums and which ones don't.

    "The WordPress Plugins Directory is a hosting site, not a listing site", so most people assume that if you're hosting your code here, that you're also using the forums, FAQ, etc instead of having redundant external systems.

    Here's a more detailed discussion on the pros/cons of using the WP.org repo for hosting but not documentation/support/etc.
