[Plugin: CSV Importer] Is it possible also to update posts with this plugin?
First, thanks for your great job dvkob!
I tested the plugin and it looks it is working great, also wirh Hebrew characters (The only problem is the shitty MS-Excel cannot disply characters as utf-8, so I have 2 versions of my csv – one for excel editing and other that converted to csv for importing, but nevermind.)
Now I have to prepare a large data of 500-600 posts and hope it will be ok.
Anyway, is there a way to UPDATE existing posts using this plugin?
Let’s say I have imported some posts, and later on I will get some more data that needed to be updated for them (i.e – need to add some custom fields or taxonomies etc) for existing posts.
I assume that in this release it can’t be done, since I looked in the plugin’s code and saw you use the wp_insert_post function.
I wonder if there is a way for enhancing it for using also wp_update_post and let’s say put in the csv a special field of the post id and then if it is exists than the csv will be used to update existing posts and not for creating new ones.
I will be happy to hear what you think about the idea and if you think you could do this enhancement in the plugin.
