Support » Plugin: WP RSS Multi Importer » content to custom fields

    (@neowebkit)


    Is there a way to put a value in the rss in the custom fields? I have a number of feeds with prices, discount prices, discount date etc but they are in the description. I wonder is there a way for me put them in the custom fields. It would be easier for me to play around the valuables. I can edit the rss so that the plugin will know where to get the information.

    Any chance for u to add this feature? Or please give me some hints so that I can figure it out by myself.

    Many thanks

    If these are incoming feeds, and the data exists somewhere in the content of the feeds, then you would need to write a regular expression program to parse the feed, which is something I’m not going to do with this plugin…but you can do it if you know programming…just take one of the templates (if you’re using the shortcode) and customize it or else you’d need to change the import_posts.php file for the Feed to Post feature. Both files have $items[“mydesc”] which is the variable you want to parse.

    Thanks Allen. I will try writing some code according to your advice.
