    Hi guys,

    I´m merging two CPTs in one, I have lessons and sports, and I´m only keeping lessons.

    I´m uploading all the listings in Sports to the lessons category via CSV, but I´m not sure how to upload the existing images.

    I read this https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/geodirectory/settings/import-export/ but I don´t understand what the file url should be, could you give me an example please?

    When you import new listings (as you are doing) you import only the filename, as opposed to the complete URL. The format for the CSV cell is described on the page here:

    https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/geodirectory/settings/import-export/#images

    At the point where you import the listings, as soon as the import is complete, the process will inform you about where to place images. Images must be loaded via FTP to the designated folder.

    Hi Alex.

    Yes, that´s the post I read, and that´s what I thought I was doing, but I´m not doing it correctly. Could you give me an example of how they should be written. I don´t understand what I´m doing wrong.

    Thank you!

    That´s for new images right?

    I´m exporting a CPT (Sports) and importing it to another CPT (Activities), so the images are allready uploaded.

    If it is a new listing, then it is a new image and will look for the image in the folder specified at the end of the import. Why new? Because if it is in a different month/year folder, then it is new because it has a different URL.
