Support » Plugin: Link Library » Category Names and Tag Names fields problems when importing fresh links

  • Hi,

    I try to import fresh and completely ‘new’ links in Version 6.3.4 with the file template (> 7000). To start I made a test with one record.

    First I did insert just the fields I want to use seperated by a comma (,) (Name,Address,Description,Category Names,Tag Names,E-mail).
    This import did work well except for the Category Names and the Tag Names fields, which remained blank.

    Then I tried it with the complete template. Same result. Ans then the tag names without comma: no succes either.

    The problem I see with the Tag Names is that they should be seperated by a comma. But the comma is also read as the next field… How to comment them out? Or what should be the trick?

    Below the import.csv

    Name,Address,RSS,Description,Notes,Category Slugs,Category Names,Tag Slugs,Tag Names,Status,Secondary URL,Telephone,E-mail,Reciprocal link,Image Address,Large Description,No Follow,Rating,Link Target,Link Featured,Updated Date – Empty for none,Link Featured,Link Submitter Name,Link Submitter E-mail,Link Visits

    Sorry for the long time before replying. There are a few issues with the CSV file that you are trying to import. For one, some of the CSV fields do not line up correctly. Also, the way the importer is currently written, you need to supply slugs and names for categories and tags. I agree this is not optimal and I will look to correct this soon.

    For now, here is a CSV file that properly imports tags and categories:

    Name,Address,RSS,Description,Notes,Category Slugs,Category Names,Tag Slugs,Tag Names,Status,Secondary URL,Telephone,E-mail,Reciprocal link,Image Address,Large Description,No Follow,Rating,Link Target,Link Featured,Updated Date – Empty for none,Link Featured,Link Submitter Name,Link Submitter E-mail,Link Visits
