The new Easy CSV Importer screen is a simplified interface with a step by step approach on a single screen. There are clear notifications for the user to understand their progress and each step in the process has been made as simple as possible to help get users started.
The screen is coming in version 6.7.4 along with many improvements for WordPress 3.5
This feature is almost ready for release as a beta. One of the things we will need to perfect is how advanced we should make each step. The free edition of Easy CSV Importer is aimed at making very quick posts with no bells and whistles.
Hack CSV 2 POST Free Edition
Whatever the average user thinks of CSV 2 POST, a developer can see something different. If you look close you will see that the structure is in place to hack the plugin and adapt it to your needs. The potential in our core plugin is huge and getting better every week. The Easy CSV Importer screen in the free edition is a great service for anyone with the skills and desire to make the plugin do as they want. Each step is simply a HTML form and it is easy enough to find the functions that process form submissions.
Some users won’t feel the Easy CSV Importer individual steps in the paid edition would suit their project, no matter how advanced. It is hard to cover all possibilities and requirements. That is where our free plugin here on WordPress.org with this new ECI screen comes in. It would not cost a lot to hire someone to adapt the ECI steps to suit your needs if you feel both our free and paid edition is not ready for you.
We are going to add the WYSIWYG editor to the Easy CSV Importer screen and another couple of features.
The screen was renamed to Quick Start as requested by three users. They requested a name to suggest that it was a starting point and actually make the screen a starting point.
So that means skipping post creation at the end for a lot of users and instead. Those users move to the sandbox area to finish configuring their project.
It makes sense and I think it will work.
So “Quick Start” it is. Thank you for your patience while we establish our direction folks. We plan to provide this plugin for many years so it is worth the effort.
