Support » Plugin: CSV Importer & Exporter » Custom Fields not importing 3.3.1

  • Resolved webstersnewworld



    I am running PODS 2.3.18. i have created a custom post type. I have 10 fields created by PODS.

    At the moment i am trying to import a CSV file.
    wp Ultimate CSV Importer Will import the tittle and description for the first line from my CSV, when it gets the a field with numbers, it says “fieldname empty” and stops.

    Other info that may be relevant:
    – There are decimal points in the numbers
    – Some number are “0”
    – I am importing from the custom post tab
    – My Select Post Type is my custom page
    – import post status Published

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It was never tested or added support for PODS so far. Kindly add more details. It may need to tested against PODS plugin fields.

    Hi smackcoders,

    Could you be more specific in what details you are requesting.

    I am importing from “Custom post” tab. I can upload the file.

    Select Post Type – “Food” (this is custom)
    Import with post status – Publish

    The only 2 drop down witch import as “Post_title” and “Post_content”

    All other are “add custom field” they fail.

    I am importing about 4 thousand fields with
    Looks like the below:
    Food ID Food Description Amount Mills Age
    01A20081 Wine, white, cooked Wine from a bottle 150 25.9 5

    The importer will import:
    “Food” food name as tittle
    “Description” Food Description

    Only error the Importer gives is “Amount is empty” (“XXXXX is empty”)
    After importing one field it stops and fails, all other fields are show “0”, they should show a numeric value.

    It looks like PODS custom fields are not handled/stored similar to wordpress custom fields. May need to look into PODS code. Any how as far now the importer cannot handle PODS plugin data.

    Pods custom fields work exactly the same as WP custom fields, when the Pod in question is a meta-based Post Type.

    @scott Kingsley Clark, Sorry, i should have explained in detail. POD is it advanced than wp custom fields. On testing we found instead of field name, field types are getting listed in mapping options. We have plan to add support for this plugin next release version with a fix.
