So we’ve created the necessary fields Toolset Types. Now we can start adding the information to all our blogs. But manually adding content to each and every post is a tedious process. Not anymore, use WP Ultimate CSV Importer to import all your info into your Post. Let’s start the process by preparing the CSV file.

CSV Preparation

Initially, let’s add the CSV header and values

  • post_title, post_content – Your post information.
  • Parent_Group – The Field group name(mandatory) – Book Tickets

Now add your Repeatable Group Name and Field values. Multiple values are separated using Pipeline(|) separator.

For the first repeater field group

  • Concerts(Group Name) – Maroon5|Mumford & Sons and Maggie Rogers|Kali Uchis
  • Date & Time(Date) – 10/14/2018 07:30PM|12/10/2018 07:30PM|10/12/2018 08:00PM
  • Place(Single Line Text) – Madison Square Garden|Madison Square Garden|Terminal 5

For the second repeater field group

  • Movies(Group Name) – Dear Evan Hansen New York|Mean Girls New York|The Book of Mormon New York
  • Theater Name(Single Line Text) – Music box Theatre New York|August Wilson Theatre|Eugene ONeil Theatre
  • Show Date & Time(Date) – 10/12/2018 08:00PM|10/12/2018 08:00PM|10/12/2018 08:00PM

So now we can import all the values into WordPress in one go.

Import into WordPress

It just includes involves 3 simple steps.

  • Initially upload your Repeatable Field Group CSV file.
  • Navigate to the Types Custom Field mapping & map the desired CSV fields with the Types Repeatable Field Group fields.
  • Toolset-types-repeater-field-group-mapping

  • And then import all your Repeatable Field Group data in one go.

Import of Repeatable Field

For this, let’s continue with the above example. Just adding the ticket related information alone is not enough, we need to add our contact information(say Phone Number), so that the customers can instantly get in touch with us. While considering phone numbers, we used to have at least 3 to 4 numbers. But we can easily do this with Toolset Types Repeater Fields. With this, you can repeat any number of fields multiple times.

Prepare your CSV

Initially add all your post related details and then add a new column(In this example, contact-us)

  • Contact-us – Use | (Pipeline) separator to add multiple values

Eg: 9876123045|4561023782|5213984210

Import into WordPress

Same as the above, it includes 3 simple steps.

  • Upload your Repeater Field CSV file.
  • In the mapping section, navigate to the Types Custom Field mapping to map the desired CSV fields with the Types Repeater Fields.
  • And then import your Repeater Field data into WordPress.

Import of Intermediary Post

For this, let’s take a different example. Imagine that you’re maintaining two custom post,

  • Sports – Hockey, Cricket, Soccer, Tennis
  • Players – Dhanraj pillay, Harmanpreet Singh, Savita Punia, Rupinder Pal Singh, M.S.Dhoni, Ricky Ponting, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez, Mesut Özil, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Leander Paes, Sania Mirza.

So I’m going to create a post about the #1 Tennis Player, so were I need to the player along with the sports. So how is can be achieved? Obviously, with Intermediary post. Rather than just creating a post, create an Intermediary post with Toolset Types and with this you can easily relate the two custom post Sports and Players.

Prepare your CSV

Prepare your CSV in a usual way i.e. Post Title, Post Content and all the necessary fields.
In addition to that create two new column,

  • Relation_slug – For this initially create a many-to-many relationship and then add the slug in your csv.
  • Intermediary Post – Mention the to “Post Id” or “Post Title” in comma separation to related the two post.

Eg: Roger Federer,Tennis

Import into WordPress

Same as above, it includes 3 simple steps.

  • Upload your Intermediate Post CSV file.
  • In the mapping section, navigate to the Types Custom Field mapping to map the desired CSV fields with the Types Intermediate Post Fields.
