    Sorry for the delay in responding to your post.

    You can use | (pipe) separation to specify more than one taxonomy term to your custom post field.

    Hope this helps.

    THANK YOU, that worked perfectly! You should really include that in the basic instructions, I think a lot of people are going to be trying to import comma separated groups of categories/tags/etc like I just did. 🙂

    @fastasleep :

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    We have now added the support for the comma separation in addition to the pipe separation for the Categories, tags and the similar taxonomy terms of Custom Post fields in our latest update.

    Thanks again !

    Excellent news, thank you!



    How can I handle with a subcategory?

    You have to use the -> to specify the Sub category. For example If Category A is a parent of Category B, you have to specify it as

    <other fields>,Category A -> Category B,<other fields>

    You can also specify multiple levels of sub category.

    Hope this helps.
