Nejčastější dotazy

Should I fill all columns of post data?

No. Only columns which you want to update.

Can I update existing post data?

Yes. Please use ID field to specify the existing post.

Can I insert post with specific post id?

Yes. Please use ID field to specify the new post ID.

Can I import custom field/custom taxonomy of the post?

Yes. You can use column names same as wp_post table, but if the column name does not match, it creates a custom field (post meta) data. Importing custom taxonomy is a bit more complicated, „tax_{taxonomy}“ means, „tax_“ is prefix, and {taxonomy} is name of custom taxonomy (not labels).

Here is an example.

csv file
„post_title“,“singer“,“genre“,“released_date“
„Shape of You“,“Ed Sheeran“,“Pop“, „06-01-2017“

imported post data
Post Title: Shape of You
Custom field „singer“: Ed Sheeran
Custom field „genre“: Pop
Custom taxonomy „released_date“: 06-01-2017

Why should I quote text cells when I save csv file?

Because PHP cannot read multibyte text cells in some cases.

Locale setting is taken into account by this function. If LANG is e.g. en_US.UTF-8, files in one-byte encoding are read wrong by this function.

Can I insert multiple values to CFS or ACF fields like Select or Checkbox?

Yes. Please create additional plugin and use simple_csv_importer_save_meta filter to make array data.
