On a fresh WP install using current release version of this plugin, I tried to use the plugin but got the I cannot import anything - the plugin displays "Imported 0 posts in 0.01 seconds." issue (mentioned in plugin's FAQs)
I tried https://wordpress.org/plugins/really-simple-csv-importer/ and it worked just fine.
I don't like leaving negative reviews, but this one had a high rating although the Readme file hasn't been updated in 14 months (the last code change was 2 years ago) and it didn't work with the latest version of WordPress.
Works as intended. Love it.
Since I often have to create custom posts in batches, this saves me a lot of time.
Just be aware that csv_post_title, csv_post_excerpt and csv_post_post must be present in the input file, even if they are empty.
Easy, simple and works
I've used it on nearly all my sites for 4 years now, and have found it flexible enough to do most things I need, and very reliable. Easy to modify as needed.
Tried another importer that spun off all kinds of weird stuff, and then found this.
Awesome. Simple to use, good documentation.
I can look at the admin, but if I try to export/import nothing happens at all.
simple, useful and highly relevant in today's world of complexity, keeping it super simple throughout the import via csv UX.
I use custom post types with custom fields and this is the best solution I've found to import csv data to wordpress!
