Support » Plugin: WordPress Import Data as CSV/XML » Export posts where the content has return characters

  • Resolved MiriamNZ


    Looks like it is impossible to use this csv exporter if your posts have return characters.
    The only allowed delimiter for the end of a single record appears to be a return character.
    Every post in my site has multiple return characters within its content.
    Is there any way your (free) plugin can export and import this kind of content?

    Yes, there is a little hack or work around is there if this is the case
    > In export Select >> Others as delimiter option
    > Use single or double pipe symbol in separator field.
    > Now you can export the file,
    > open it in MS Excel, use text to column convert option.
    > Chose delimitted and click next
    > Now select Other in delimiter option and give || symbol
    > Click finish to convert to columns
    > Now you can save back as csv
