    Hi, I'm testing wp allimport plugin on my site, I have a problem importing video embed code from excel CVS as somewhere html code is escaped and therefore unuseful
    I export from xhamster this code
    Code:
    [TABLE="width: 80"]
    [TR]
    [TD="width: 80"]<iframe   width="510" height="400"   src="http://xhamster.com/xembed.php?video=2271282"   frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]
    
    and wp allimport change it to
    Code:
    <iframe width="510" height="400" src="http://xhamster.com/xembed.php?video=2254299" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>
    this code goes to a custom field
    some hint to avoid this ?
    thanks for help

    I think you're importing something that's not meant to be imported with that tool dude. Can't you just paste the HTML directly on the page? Otherwise you'll have to hack the plugin to change the way it displays HTML.

    so..it looks like it has problem with some html tags.
    I never tried wp all import but I do use ultimate csv importer and don't have any problem parsing those characters.
    Consider switching to csv ultimate importer, it's the best csv importer for wp in my opinion, very easy to use and has a lots of features, also support custom fields.

    I'll give U CSV Importer a try, however wp allimport allow to import from url by cronjob with featured image import, very useful for CPA's XML
