CSV Values for Jet Engine Repeater Field #

CSV Import for Jet Engine supports the repeater field type. To add a repeater field value in your CSV file, include the values with the pipeline (|) separator. Consider we have two repeater fields (Author name) text, and (Post Publish date)date. You can add two additional columns in your CSV, one for the Author name and the other for the publish date. Then mention the values in the pipeline separator like below:

Author name – Jack|Harry|Clara

Post Publish date – 2020-12-04|2020-12-31|2021-01-02

JetEngine Post Relations #

Post Relations in JetEngine lets you build connections between post types. It is categorized in three ways: one-to-one, one-to-many, and many-to-many. For importing Post relations with WP Ultimate CSV Importer, add two more columns in your CSV file along with your existing post content.

  1. Slug – To get the Post Relation slug from JetEngine and add it to your CSV. 
  2. Post Relation – Mention the ‘Post ID’ or ‘Post Title’ of the child post you want to relate to the parent post.

One-to-one relation

One-to-one relation is used when you want to relate a single child post to a single parent post.

Ex: Bus(B1, B2, B3) and Driver(D1, D2, D3) – Each Bus will have unique Drivers and Each Driver only can drive one bus.

  • Post Title(B2) – Any required information
  • Slug – bus-and-drivers
  • Post Relation – D2

One-to-many Relations #

This is used to relate one post type to many posts in another post type.

Ex: Sport(Football,Cricket) and Player(Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar). Each sport has many players but no one player can be in two sports.

  • Post Title(Football) – Your necessary info
  • Slug – sport-players
  • Post relation – LionelMessi,CristianoRonaldo,Neymar

Many-to-many Relations #

Many-to-many relation is typically used to relate many custom post types to many different post types.

Ex: Sportshoes(Nike, Puma, Adidas) and Color(White,Green,Red) – Each Brand shoes will be in multiple colors and each color can be available in multiple shoe brands.

  • Post Title(Adidas) – Your necessary info
  • Slug- shoe-color
  • Post relation – White,Green,Red

JetEngine New Relations Import

JetEngine refactored the relationship field from scratch. It now supports custom post types, custom content types, taxonomy, and user relations. Also, inside the relation, you can create meta fields that can be assigned to parent or child relations or both. We have upgraded our CSV Importer plugin to support the latest JetEngine Relations. As the different post relation types aforementioned, here we can see how to prepare CSV to import JetEngine relations into the website.  

Add extra fields inside CSV

To import relations, you need to include additional fields in your CSV along with the existing field’s headers and values. One is to specify the relation post and the others are relation meta fields.

Add the field ‘jet_related_post’ and give the child post id as a value to relate the child post with the parent post.

RelationDescriptionSample CSV value
jet_related_postMention the child relation post id here.124

The above is applied to one-to-one relations. Sometimes, you may have to relate multiple child posts with a parent post. Then this relation must be a ‘one-to-many’, or ‘many-to-many’ relation. For that, mention IDs in the pipeline separator like below:

jet_related_postMention the multiple child post ids with pipeline separator.124|212|347

In relations, as previously mentioned you can create meta fields for each related post. If you want to add values to the meta fields created for the relations, specify the field headers and include appropriate values inside the CSV. JetEngine supports 9 field types for the Relations. The field types are text, date, time, datetime, textarea, checkbox, media, radio, and select.

Follow the below values format to include values for the meta fields in your CSV file.

          Meta Fields                       Description  Sample CSV Values
