    Hi,

    I purchased WP All Import pro and I have download your ‘scripts’, but at that point I am a little in the dark.

    Is there some further documentation that can help.

    Essentially I have taken a UK feed file (flat file) and created a plugin that will parse it into XML (but it wont have tags that you know), so the next stage is to load it into Easy Property Listings, hence WP All Import.

    Just a few pointers and I should be on my way. Please.

    To be a bit more precise, I have now loaded a couple of tests and also loaded your templates, but they don’t seem to help with my ‘rental’ section.

    I guess I will need to map many of my xml nodes to custom fields (like price) so is there a guide documents somewhere?

    Cheers, Alan

    OK worked that one out. First add a property with everything, then WP All Import can see the custom fields.

    But working through them, will maps work on just address of will I need to look up coordinates externally and add them to the XML (I don’t have coordinates on my incoming file )

    The downloadable scripts include a rental template which have all the meta fields already mapped out.

    All you now need to do is map the XML nodes from your data to the meta fields which will appear using the rental template import script.

    Hi Merv,

    Perhaps I did something wrong, I downloaded the template file and uploaded it. It created three templates, one called rental. When I ‘used’ the rental template I couldn’t find any mapped fields. I’ll have another go, although I think I have mapped them manually OK already.

    Glad to help. Pulled my hair out with that one too… several times.
