Beta release of WP All Import Pro Add-On for Easy Property Listings

Today we are pleased to announce the first public beta of our WP All Import Pro add-on for Easy Property Listings. WP All Import Pro is a fantastic plugin that allows importing XML and CSV files into your WordPress website.

This add-on for WP All Import Pro has all the Easy Property Listings custom fields pre-configured.

Our goal with this add-on is not to just be able to import listings into Easy Property Listings but to improve import speed especially with images.

Easy Property Listings Import is live! Get it here.

However to take advantage of these speed improvements we have had to make changes to the record.php file included in WP All Import Pro. We will be submitting a request to Soflyy the creators of WP All Import to add the additional hooks to their fantastic plugin.

How to get started with the new importer and WP All Import Pro:

What you will need:

No modifications to WP All Import required -> Replace record.php

FTP to your plugins/wp-all-import-pro/models/import/ folder and replace record.php with the one from the add-on located in: plugins/epl-wp-all-import/includes/

WP All Import – Import Template

Download the REAXML template which works for all post types, super easy! Get them here.

Once you have installed and activated the add-on visit Dashboard > All Import > Settings and import the template (its a .txt file.

Create your first import job

Now when you create a new import as previously shown here except this time we have a whole section dedicated to the custom fields for Easy Property Listings.

Creating your import for REAXML is easy as all you need to do is load the template from the bottom of the import page. Once you load the import template all the fields will be configured for REAXML. We will be adding more templates for other popular formats like Jupix UK.

Let us know in the comments below what you think of the new importer, if you have any issues or find any bugs.

  1. Hi,

    I’m testing and it seems to be working quickly on locahost.

    I edited the WP Allimport to add the XMLId to the end of the Title and reran the import – None of the titles or URLs updated. Have you done something in the process of speeding up the XML that will only allow updates if the XML has changed – Logical but what if there’s a manual update to the import template?

    Cheers

    Ben

    We updated the importer on GitHub which you can download and replace on your website for further testing. The update corrects the Activate once initial imports is set options show in the settings image above. Thanks for testing the plugin Ben.
