Support » Plugin: CSV 2 POST » Not sure how to work this plugin

  • Resolved s2alanna



    I’ve tried using this plugin and it seems very clear how to set it up, but for some reason I can’t get it to work. I’ve run into multiple issues and at this point I don’t think it’s me. I’m using the free version of the plugin and maybe that’s the problem. I’ve tried with the theme I plan to use for my site and I’ve tried with the default WordPress Twenty Thirteen and Twenty Fourteen themes. I’ve also tried disabling all my plugins and using the default theme. Still running into multiple issues.
    So here are all my issues…
    – I have gotten posts and pages created, but they are set to (no title) instead of a title that I set
    – I have gotten posts and pages created but none of the content “tokens” are appearing
    – I have gotten to the end of the set up process to receive a message that says there was an error and no posts were created
    – I have imported the data and set the date and it says 0 rows were recorded

    Those are the ones that I can remember off the top of my head. This seems like exactly what I’m looking for for my client, but I can’t seem to get it to work properly. I also haven’t found any other plugins out there that have quite this much power and control (provided I can get it working). I would appreciate any help you can offer, I would really like to use this plugin.

    Thank you for trying the plugin. It is a complex plugin because it is a watered down version of the premium which is very complex. The plugin is about to enter a new phase of development though. Hoping to start it in around one week. A far easier interface, more guidance, more help.

    Until that is complete I am here to help.

    Looking at your list, it’s the wrong away around. First thing is importing the data and go no further with your project until you see the data in the database. Issues there let me know, send your .csv file and so on. Nothing will work without data already imported, it is the reason your token’s cannot be replaced.


    My list is jumbled up, I’ve had these issues at one point or another. I’ve been trying to get the plugin to work for 2 days. In some instances I got 0 rows recorded, in other instances the proper number of rows (9) were recorded, but it would create posts with (no title) and the tokens would not appear on the template I created. I guess I will put this aside until a new version of the plugin is released. Thanks for your help.

    Some of the issues are a result of the data not being imported so they probably aren’t bugs. Token replacement is vital in this plugin and constantly tested so I’m confident in that.

    If tokens themselves do not appear in final posts, it may mean they are being replaced by empty values or incorrect (blank) template is actually in use and not the one you think.

    Thank you for your patience.

    Oh and normally I would assume that somewhere in all that you have experienced a fault or a design issue that causes confusion. Then I would offer a discount. But the plugin is already very low priced now. That is to encourage a last minute influx of users so that there are more people testing 8.0.0 as it is being developed.

    Should you one day decide to purchase and the price has gone back up then a discount is available to yourself.
