Safe to update to WP All Import Pro 4.5 as the Importer Add-on 1.0.11 has been released

Whew, crisis averted as we have solved the importing issue caused by a filter alteration in WP All Import Pro 4.5 which has just been released.

Ensure you update the Easy Property Listings Importer Add-on to 1.0.11 when running WP All Import Pro 4.5. Included in this release is backward compatibility with WP All Import Pro 4.4.5 and earlier so no problems if you just update the importer add-on.

Cause of Issue

The Soflyy team made some improvements to the logging system in WP All Import Pro 4.5 however they adjusted a filter and added an additional command which mucked up the order of the function.

In code terms, the previous filter function was:

apply_filters('wp_all_import_is_post_to_update', $post_to_update_id, $current_xml_node, $this->id);

Which changed to:

apply_filters('wp_all_import_is_post_to_update', $continue_import, $post_to_update_id, $current_xml_node, $this->id);

Anytime a function or filters variables order are altered it causes issues.

We’ve implemented code changes to handle this order adjustment and retained the previous depreciated function so that it will still operate with WP All Import Pro 4.4.5 or older.

We hit the panic button and dropped everything to get this solved as quickly as possible.

Thanks for your patience while we solved this issue.

Avoid updating to WP All Import Pro 4.5 as import skipping is not working

We’ve been testing the latest release of WP All Import Pro 4.5 and the new code in that version is preventing listing skipping during update.

Please refrain from updating to WP All Import 4.5 until we can resolve the issue in the Importer Add-on for Easy Property Listings new code that allows for record skipping.

We’ve contacted the team at SoFlyy, the creators of WP All Import Pro.

FeedSync 3.0.1 is now out with some tweaks and adjustments

After a great release of FeedSync 3.0 we discovered a couple minor issues that we have now patched. During this we also had the chance to test the update feature of FeedSync and… oh crud found a minor bug that will prevent the automatic updating system from working when you upgrade from FeedSync 2.x.

Don’t worry its a quick fix and all you need to do is create a directory. We have also updated the FeedSync codex documentation to reflect this missing step.
