    Simply said no you can't for now (unless you write it for yourself).

    However in the next version I've changed the dictionary to a custom post type so with an external plugin you should be able to mass import words.

    Hi there,

    Could you please give me more details on plugins for bulk imports?
    I have tried to use the Ultimate CSV Importer plugin and I am only able to select Explanatory Dictionary as a custom post type for the ID column. I therefore get an error when trying to import as I can't select a field Type for the other columns (word, synonyms_and_forms, explanation)

    The explanation is the normal editor field (post_content) so you should be able to fill that during the import.

    As for the custom meta_box (synonyms) I'm not sure how that Ultimate CSV Importer plugin works, but I've just created a custom post type and added the meta_box as WP explains it to so if it doesn't work I think that the problem lies within the importer.

    Now I might look into this in the future but for now I wont

    Hello,

    Thank you very much for this. It has now worked.

    I set up the following mappings as you advised

    ID - Explanadict
    Word - Post Title
    Synonyms - Post Tags (Might not work functionally but I can live with it)
    Explanation - Post Content.

    All words imported and tooltips are showing in my frontend. Thanks again.
