I’ve read the post made by barbfeldman about “Featured Image has invalid permissions”. I followed all her recommendations but I’m still unable to make the import process to work correctly, at least for featured images.
As she said, replacing absolute path with a relative path to the image will make the import to complete successfully, but the image is still missing from the post. I tried the following:
Uploading image to EDD folder (lines below were the data entered in the csv file):
• /wp-content/uploads/edd/2014/04/image.jpg (image permissions: 655)
• wp-content/uploads/edd/2014/04/image.jpg (image permissions: 655)
Uploading image to a different folder (lines below • were the data entered in the csv file):
• /wp-content/uploads/temp/image.jpg (folder: 755 – image: 655)
• wp-content/uploads/temp/image.jpg (folder: 755 – image: 655)
I dropped her a request to provide more detailed info about the process she followed but no answer yet, so here I’m asking you to (please) provide clear instructions on what needs to be done in order to import the featured image using the CSV Import Manager.
Note: barbfeldman is right about the information that needs to be put in the file, so in order to import you must provide the following:
Slug, Date, Status, Description, Excerpt, Post Title, Download file, Category, Tags, Price and Image. If the path to the image is absolute the import will stall. If the path to the image is relative the import will occur even if the category and tag provided don’t exist (will be created in the import process).
