CSV Import for WordPress
[resolved] Stops importing text after accent letter i.e é (4 posts)

    I'm having a problem importing the text from the CSV file. Everything imports perfectly until a letter with an accent i.e é or á, is encountered e.g. when importing the sentence "This is a cliché I have seen before" what is actually imported is "This is a clich" it does not import the é or any test following it.

    Can anyone help with this. Would be much appreciated :)

    Thanks in advance

    This was already discussed several times. You should save/reformat your csv as UTF-8 without BOM. This will solve the issue.

    1 Prepare a CSV file with the data (I used Excel)
    2 Saving files to CSV (Excel function)
    3 I opened the CSV file in Notepad + +
    4 CTR + A, CTR + C (copy all the text)
    5 The "Encoding"> "Encode without BOM"
    6 CTR + V to paste all text
    7 Save the file
