WP Ultimate CSV Importer Support Threads
Custom Fields not importing 3.3.1
I am running PODS 2.3.18. i have created a custom post type. I have 10 fields created by PODS.
|smackcoders||It was never tested or added support for PODS so far. Kindly add more details.|
It may need to tested against PODS plugin fields.
Could you be more specific in what details you are requesting.
|smackcoders||It looks like PODS custom fields are not handled/stored similar to wordpress custom fields. May need to look into PODS code. Any how as far now the importer cannot handle PODS plugin data|
Import featured image bug
|robov||First of all...
THANK you for making this wonderful plugin. It works very nice. I noticed a small bug in the file uploading code.
|smackcoders||This is because of the CSV file format. It should be converted to UTF-8 without Bom (e.g. notepad+) to handle such special character should work.
Let me know the results and post you feedback in review.
first of all, very nice plugin, and it works well.
Now I got a problem I need to insert some reviews into a new, fresh worpress installation.
There I got a Txonomy field called "Artists".
How do I import the Reviews into new Posts, and the Artists into the artist taxonomy?
|smackcoders||Taxonomy support is not yet added/tested. Still can you add more details like the plugin and sample csv etc? We will look into it.|

CSV's ANSI encoding causes problems with special characters
Your plugin is a blessing: I have an entire 900+ entries Excel spreadsheet to import into two custom post types. You just saved me a month of work.
The values I have to import are in French. Excel's ANSI encoding caused strings to be cut before the first accentuated character for each one. I have opened the csv in NotePad++ and converted the encoding to UTF-8. Worked like a charm!
Maybe someone could benefit from this piece of information :)
Thank you for the feedback. Really it should help others. Also kindly rate our plugin.
I have Italian special Characters like "è,à".when i try to import it is not loading full text.it is breaking until this characters.please help me.i did evrenk approach ,but no luck.
The encoding you might get at the beginning might be different. When you open the file in a text editor, play with the encoding settings until the characters appear OK and then change the encoding to UTF-8. Does it work?
|smackcoders||Hope @hansa1 got that worked to.|
|eyoungquist||Thanks evrenk!!! I was pulling my hair out about this issue. Perfect solution! Will make our client very happy not to have to search/replace foreign chars with html entity codes in the csv file! Great plugin, smackcoders - any chance of accepting ANSI-encoded files in the future?|
|LeRedac||Merci beaucoup evrenk pour cette astuce !!! j'était en train de me prendre le choux grave sur cette histoire de uft8. J'ai moi aussi une base de plus de 4000 enregistrement à importer dans un post type ! La ac Notpad ++ ça marche nickel !|
smackcoders, i'm confirm Your plugin is a blessing !! Thank you so much ;-)
|smackcoders||@ LeRedac, Merci pour votre commentaire, j'espère que vous pouvez poster votre avis qui nous aident à maintenir notre plugin grandit|
