    Hi,

    I am currently trying to upload a CSV file with WP-Import all. Unfortunately I always get the following error message although I downloaded a sample file and saved it as CSV:

    The uploaded file is not a valid CSV file. Please check it and try again.

    Tom

    Hi Kor,

    ok, now I have another plugin on it and can upload the CSV.

    Now I get you error messages like:

    Line: 3 errors: Content type is missing.
    Line: 4 Error: Content type is missing.
    Line: 5 Error: Content type is missing.

    Hello,

    I opened your CSV files and it looks like you used something besides Libre or Open Office.

    Please try editing your import file with one of those because they will show you the file as your site will ‘see’ it and confirm whether the csv formatting is a problem.

    We have a recommended import procedure here. Please take a look. For what you want to do, you should add some example listings to your V2 site, export those listings, and then merge your V1 listings into that same export file. Remember to leave out the post id if they are new listings.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the quick answer.

    I have now exported the files that have already been entered. I opened this CSV with Excel and Numbers (Mac), edited it and saved it as CSV again.

    I still get the same error messages.

    I have tested the procedure with other plugins and here the required CSV files were taken over without problems.

    What is different with your plugin?

    Hi andantor,

    Thanks for your reply. We do not recommend Excel nor Numbers MAC. Please use only Libre or Open Office software to edit your CSV files.
