i have metabox and WpAll-Import, but the WPAI addon is not ready. So i want to start my website and import a XML / CSV file which is zip/gzipped from Awin#com (the biggest affiliate service for Europe/USA) into metabox fields. Which tool can i use to import these files and does work with all fields ?
You can use the plugin WP All Import or any import plugin to import value to the custom fields created by Meta Box. But it only works with some simple fields like text, number, email, single_image ... not work with some complicated fields like cloneable, group, field with setting
'multiple' => true.
It is still not possible to import data from repeater or cloneable fields or relationship fields with WP ALL Import Pro?
Sorry, but this should be a matter of course.
I've had a license from you for a year now, but I've never used your plugin because you don't offer a professional way to import data.
That's why I use ACF Pro. For this plugin there is a very good add-on for WP All Import and WP All Export.
Is there any update about the support of WP All Import and WP All Export support?
Also looking for a way to import from a CSV file, please. 🙂 I have Metabox Pro and Wp All Import Pro.
WP All Import will find the custom fields and the CPT and it will import any singular data source but if there are multiple options (ie: checkboxes) it will just add the whole group with pipe separators as one entry to the front end but doesn't add it to the back end so no way to remove/edit it from back end or edit page.
WP All Import said that they were working on an add on but it looks like it has been in the works for several years now so I can't wait for that to happen lol
Is there another plugin or option for importing multi-option checkbox data? They mentioned something about hiring a dev to write a PHP function but after shelling out $$$ for both programs I would prefer not to shell out anymore. LOL
Perhaps you have the function codes needed to make this work hidden in the docs somewhere?
Thank you kindly for any help you can offer 🙂
Hi Tanja, in this life there will be no WP All Import extension for Meta-Box. I've also been reading for years that there should be an extension soon. Even Crocoblock has a WP All Import and Export extension for JetEngine. I bought the plug-in immediately after it was released and can say that it works flawlessly. Repeater and Relationship too. The developer is not the most talented designer (I mean only his website), but he doesn't have to be. The main thing is that it is clean, programmed and the program interface is intuitive to use.
It's not a direct integration like wp all import. But maybe we can ask these guys to add (advanced) Metabox support: https://community.airtable.com/t5/show-tell/launch-of-air-wp-sync-a-wordpress-plugin-to-import-and-sync-data/td-p/81272
Thank you for the input nbadmin 🙂 I will give them a look but not ready to invest in yet another plugin. I love Metabox but it really needs an import option. What is weird is that WP all import said it was possible to use a PHP snippet but that I would need to hire a dev to write it. So my thought process is that if I can hire a dev to get the code, why can't wp all import and metabox get together and hire the dev to fix this issue? I just had to manually add over 200 custom post types because it was taking longer to find a solution to this problem than it took to add them one at a time manually.
How can we target a settings page field with WP All Import? Seems it only lets us target current post field, so we need PHP for mapping to a settings page update.
