WP CSV
[resolved] Displaced CSV values (5 posts)

    Hi, really nice plugin!
    But I have the problem that some of the values are displaced.
    I added a whole bunch of custom fields that are filled by users via a small survey form - info like name, email, age etc.

    Even when I export without any field filters, the generated CSV has the same error - somewhere in the middle or the end of the table two values are put in where they do not belong. The following values are therefore displaced.

    here's a sample export of a test post:
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4175049/wpcsv-export_test.csv

    as you can see, the row named 'theNickname' has the value of 'post_description' - and in row 'usedApp' the value of 'post_title' is shown...

    any hints/tips on how to fix this?
    Thanks :)

    oh... btw, in the database the postmeta looks right.

    Hi finefin

    When I used to investigate these things it almost always turned out to be that the user had two delimiters ticked in their spreadsheet's import panel.

    Beyond that, sorry, but I'm too busy to provide much support. I only made the update tonight because someone sponsored it. Long version here.

    Best wishes

    hey, I really appreciate that you work on this plugin, that it's for free and that you answered my question!

    I checked the delimiters but it looks okay. I've got the one default comma inside the "Delimiter" field and, as I wrote, the error also occurs without any filters.

    but I have another idea how to fix this. But if that won't work out... just tell me where I have to put the money ;)
