Advanced CSV Importer plugin to import/export posts, pages, eshop products, custom posts with custom fields with few simple clicks
I have a site I'm developing for a business and I need to get it done somewhat quickly. I needed to be able to upload a bunch of custom post data into the site. I installed this plugin because so many others had and though it looked good. It was glitchy from the beginning and would only upload 40 items at a time and was missing info and just weird and screwed up.
At that point I needed it to work so I went to their site and ordered it online and paid for it. The site said I would get an email with all the info I needed. I never received the email, the pro plugin or anything. I was in a bind and got no responses from anyone.
I bought and loaded http://www.wpallimport.com/ which worked wonderfully and I highly recommend. Not glitchy, no missing data. just an all around better product.
At that point I was hoping to get my money back. I emailed the developer and he basically said it was a digital product and I should "buzz off". I wasn't getting anything back. I've emailed them numerous times with no response.
DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE. IT'S A RIP OFF. AVOID THEM!
The installation process is arduous (requires rooting around in ioncube and htaccess), and once I had my hosting settings updated to match the requirements, the CSV import failed in WordPress 4.1. If you're prepared to pay for a CSV importer plugin, don't waste your time with this, get WP All Import instead.
Furthermore the license is for just one domain (doesn't even include subdomains or work in a local environment! So frustrating for working on test sites).

Breaking other well made plugins
Please take a hard look at you latest update as it's in really bad shape. I hate to even say this but, but it need to be said to protest other users
Best of Luck : )
This plugin leaves junk tables in the database after it's deactivated. There is a setting to remove the tables upon deactivation, but when you click to enable that function, a message box pops up saying this is only for pro version...
Why would someone pay $149.00 for the PRO version if they're going to DEACTIVATE AND DELETE IT?
after uploading the csv file it shows white screen
already it is conflicting with most of popular and important plugins
i dont know how a poor plugin like this , can be sold for 149$ it is really a big scam
dont even think to download the free version it is waste of time
After spending several hours trying to figure out what the error messages displayed really meant in order to get it to run, it didn't import any of the custom fields I specified. This plugin is just really badly coded.
a lot of trouble and not able to activate because of ioncube trouble.
ioncube works fine, installed and tested with loader-wizard.
Switched to woothemes csv-import-suite and this works great.
poor support (always same answers and instructions, not really productive) and no money back warranty.
I was seeking a plugin that would output a graph that could be displayed with content on a page; this plugin makes you categorize it to post type.
Furthermore, while the .CSV file did upload correctly, the plugin would not proceed past "Import Data Configuration," stating:
Error: post_title, post_content, - Mandatory fields. Please map the fields to proceed.
...even though the fields were mapped.
Not only does the free plugin not export a csv file, Excel does not recognize what the file is. Lets see, I should pay 149 for the pro version based on what I have seen from the free plugin and not being able to find a way to contact the developer on their site. Right@!!!
I paid for the Pro version of this plugin in good faith as it said it worked with Advanced Custom Fields.
It turned out that while it is compatible with the basic ACF plugin, it does not support any of the ACF extensions such as Repeater.
When I asked them to add this support they asked me to share the ACF source code with them and said they would charge me, ACF were not happy with me sharing their code so I didn't.
Also,you can also only choose between a comma or a semi-colon as a delimiter which for importing any posts that have content or excerpts is a ridiculous limitation.
And it did not remove the tables it had created in the database nor the files it created in the uploads folder on deleting.
I ended up buying an alternative plugin from http://www.wpallimport.com which is $60 cheaper, isn't restricted to a single site and has a far superior interface.
This plugin proved to be unusable for me and despite the initial good customer service they refused to refund my money.
Their lack of disclaimer with regard to the ACF extensions is misleading, for this and the reasons abovce I've given it 1 star.
