Ticket #27294 Public

csv-import, event types and tags

I understand that I can import up to 5 event typs with  event_type,event_type_2 etc., but cannot find a field for tags. Is there a way to assign tags during import? Tagging about 3.000 events after import would be very boring 🙁

Thanks and Best Regards

      Currently, these are the only fields supported:

      • Publish status
      • Event name, subtitle
      • Event description
      • Event start & end time and date
      • Event location Name and address & location ID
      • Event organizer & organizer ID
      • Generate google maps from address or not field
      • All day events
      • Learn more links
      • User interaction settings for events
      • Featured image
      • Event color
      • Event type category #1 and #2
      • ActionUser user IDs for event

      Ok. Doesn’t matter. I found a workaround for this one problem that works well. May be interesting also for others.
      Create an additional category (e.g. Category 4).
      Create a dummy event with all needed tags.
      Change tags to category 4 in SQL with
      Update wp_kiahuffu_term_taxonomy set taxonomy=’event_type_4′ where taxonomy=’post_tag’
      Import data with tags in column event_type_4
      Change catageory to tags in SQL with
      Update wp_kiahuffu_term_taxonomy set taxonomy=’post_tag’ where taxonomy=’event_type_4′

      Best Regards
