thanks! ;-)

it’s really simple but very useful and powerful plugin!

How does the plugin handle formatting of post content?

The post content will be formatted as in your xls or xlsx file will be defined.

Your Excel file has ‘Post Body’ field and includes the html tags like

<div style="text-align: center;"><p>Your text</p></div> 
or some other tags for adjust styles and formatting the text.

When you will import this Excel file into WordPress posts – all these defined styles and formatting of the text will be saved in your posts.

Or if you define your Excel text (in cell area) as bold, italic, etc. – your text will be bold, italic, etc. after importing into WordPress.

Hi there, just installed plugin. I go to the mutipost importer screen and (http://www.kennyjcampbell.com/screenshot.png) is all i see, with all options greyed out and it just statically states file uploading (when i havnt uploaded anything)

unfortunately it crashes/hangs at 94%

please read your email…

Dear sir,

No need to create a custom folder for this plugin and try to upload corrupted excel file.

Happy that we’re resolved your problem!


Hi OrtusIT, I have a few pre-sale questions.

1.) Can I import posts from an Excel document (that has url’s for the images that I want to use as the featured images) and automatically add the images to the media gallery? If so, will it do this without renaming my images? I am currently trying to do this with a another import plugin but it renames all of my images (it removes all of the hyphens from my image names).

2.) Can I import content into custom fields?

3.) Can I save the import mapping so if I import multiple files I do not have to remap all of the fields each time?

4.) Does it also work with CSV files or does it need to be XML or XLS?


Hello nopez4you,

1. In this version you can import posts directly from Excel files with automated screenshot of destination website by the defined URL. Images (screenshots) will be added in the Featured Image field for each Post and will be located in Media.

With new version of the plugin (will released nex week) you can define what are you want to import: screenshots or images or without the Featured Image. This plugin will not rename your images names.

2. Yes, you can do it. With using specified format in your content data (see templates for example).

3. Yes, you can define association (mapping) any Post features will be imported with your source Excel cells. This mapping will be used for all imported data.

4. This plugin work only with standard XLS or XLSX Excel files. If you need to use CSV file to import – please make convertation from CSV to XLSX file format.
But it’s possible to implement CSV files support in the next releases.

Thanks for your interest of our products.

Now you can define not just a website URLs with automated screenshots uploads, but your own images, use a template image or without a Feature Image content.

Hello, I just bought the plugin and it seems when I upload the plugin, it only posts about 13-14 first posts in the excel file and then it sort of stops without any errors. You can see that the time is running and running and running and nothing happens. Tried it several times with different files still the same problem. Always stops at around 12-14 posts and then goes to sort of sleeping mode…. just time keeps ticking put no more posts are being posted….

I asked hostgator if they have any some restrictions on the hosting side but it they said no. Can you advise what the problem could be and how to fix it.

Uploading Data… Please wait!
