CSV 2 POST WordPress Plugin
Prepare and manage data…
CSV 2 POST doesn’t throw data into WP core tables like some other importers. Instead, we have a unique approach which allows us to offer more features. You can import data to WordPress from any properly formatted .csv file with clean headers. Data will be imported into a custom database table, automatically created for you. Where it can be managed prior to creating posts. You might want to filter rows you do not want to use, changing money values using maths and even cleaning up keywords. Much more is possible with CSV 2 POST, making it great value for money and a true tool for developers.
Creates Posts, Quality not quantity…
I admit we used to market the plugin based on speed and it’s ability to create thousands of posts in a short time. Try to dazzle potential buyers and excite them. I’m not saying our software is not exciting, it’s just exciting for better reasons than creating thousands of posts within minutes. CSV 2 POST is about quality, not quantity. CSV 2 POST doesn’t throw data into WP core tables like some other importers. It uses the WP core fully, creating properly constructed post records, every value validated by WordPress itself, every WP and plugin setting applied. That is what CSV 2 POST is about.
Data first, then posts…
Our WP plugins design takes what we believe is the professional approach to updating posts. First CSV 2 POST updates the raw data imported to a project database table created automatically to keep life simple. It is that table we update, with new data from .csv files or when you make changes to your file. This is a unique step in our data importer plugin. It allows us to break down the steps that lead to mass updating posts in your blog. By updating data first, then posts a little later. We have the opportunity to monitor our data, prepare new data and make log entries regarding changes. Smaller steps create a safer data engine.
Multiple post update triggers…
Post updating can be started manually or automated within the plugins own schedule system. CSV 2 POST can even update posts systematically rather than in batch. You can configure the plugin to suit the approach your WP site requires using multiple post update triggers. Triggers include updating when the data used to create a post has changed. The change could be manually done within the MySQL database, an update by CSV 2 POST itself or a third party plugin making alterations to a product. A post can also be updated as a result of project settings being changed, essentially re-building the post in every way (including custom field meta, taxonomy, and content) based on your newly selected options.
Create Posts Unlimited
Auto-blog posts, pages and custom post types. You can even dynamically switch between different post types based on values in your data.
Update Posts Unlimited
Make your posts change when your .csv file changes. Update WordPress posts all at once or activate Systematic Post Updating – great on low cost hosting with restrictions.
There is a free forum for CSV 2 POST on WordPress.org and I have one right here on the WebTechGlobal domain. Register via my WP installation and you’ll be able to log-in to my phpBB forum using the same username and password.
Text spinning is the art of turning one sentence into another…then another…and another. CSV 2 POST is the first WordPress plugin to provide a spinner feature free – more features to come on this too.
It can be expensive in the long run buying an expensive solution that still needs customizing. CSV 2 POST has been designed to make upgrading easy and cheaper. Keep your money and spend getting custom features that suit your business requirements by hiring the author of this auto blogging plugin.
Import groups of images per post to the WordPress media library. They become attachments and a featured image can be set. Tools for remote or local images are provided.
You will quickly discover our plugin is large. We held off on full internationalizing CSV 2 POST until most of the interface was complete. Translation is being done now and is a high priority.
Post Dates and Backdating
Various dates options will allow you to set publish dates suitable for your blog type. Your posts can even have future dates, allowing WordPress to schedule them automatically.
No Duplicate Content
You can ask the plugin to avoid using duplicate rows. It also won’t create duplicates by default but for those of you who run a site with matching posts you can disable the safety.
The plugins log system allows us to trace what CSV 2 POST is doing.
One of the late systems slowly being integrated throughout the plugin. Flags posts with potential problems such as duplicates and can flag specific rows of data for various reasons.
The plugin is a full-time job, so there is always someone to help. It became so popular that the plugin grew too large and we went dark on it while it was re-developed. Version 8 released May 2014 has us back on track.
Free Forum Support
As a WordPress user, you are spoiled for choice. You can either use the WordPress.org plugin forum or you can register on this site (via WP) and you’ll automatically get a WebTechGlobal Forum account.
This is the first plugin to provide free text spinning within a WordPress auto-blogging plugin. Using a trick we can create random sentences or entire paragraphs – each one unique. The applications of such a tool are endless and you get it free. Look out for more free text-spinning tools from WebTechGlobal too.
Upload the plugin using the admin or FTP and activate. The plugin is ready for you to tell it where your .csv file is by adding the full path and progress will come easy.
Set The Pace
Ryan Bayne created his own schedule system which automates data import, post creation, and post updating. You can set the rate which it happens, drip-feed or get the job done today.
By randomizing templates, creating rules based on your data and even using text spinners (spintax). You will easily create unique content that is 100% search engine friendly.
CSV 2 POST is guaranteed to work with your theme or your money back. We even add theme specific features to make life easier for the most advanced premium themes.
Providing you have permission to use the data, everything else is legal. You can use a single .csv file to create 100 different blogs and you would be doing nothing wrong or unethical.
Any Website Type and Topic
I’ve seen CSV 2 POST being used to maintain fast changing Real-estate website and even corporation intranets or you could just keep a blog active I suppose!
Sometimes it is risky adding a new file to an existing project so just create another project and have many running at once. The plugin has a growing range of features to manage a long list of projects.
Monetize Your Blog
Import affiliate data, auto blog posts among your own manual posts to create a natural blog and even cloak those long messy affiliate URL to get more clicks.
Powerful Content Templates
