We are moving from an older cold fusion site, and have Connections set up on a new WP site, and have successfully migrated all our contacts’ data, and new custom fields (using a php script our developer wrote). This leaves us with about 250 logo images to administer to get into the site. Is there a way to place all these logo images up at the site in one folder like “/wp-content/uploads/connections-images/logos” and then import according to the ID in the database?
For instance, just import a CSV with just the logo URL to match database ID #:
Database ID for contact = 004
Logo Img name= 004.png
Logo URL = http://www.sitename.com/wp-content/uploads/connections-images/logos/004.png
All the correct data is contained in the Connections database, already, but we need to get the Logos in there too and they already have the IDs as their names.
Can we just import the Logo URL, and it will place the paths in the right matching ID record?
Or any other way to do this (rather than manually one by one).
Thank you, -Richard11/02/2017 at 10:54 am #439686Steven ZahmKeymaster
Navigate to the Connections : Tools admin page, click the Export tab, scroll to the bottom and use the Export All tool. Open the CSV file in LibreOffice Calc or Google Spreadsheets (avoid Excel) fill in the logo URL for each entry. You could get crafty and use a formula to take the base URL and filename and concatenate them together so you only need to enter the base URL once and add the filename for each.
With the latest release of the CSV Import you can import the logo by importing your updated CSV file which has a fully qualifies URL for the logo.
The only thing that could throw a wrench into the works is… do you have any of the repeatable fields, such as the address and phone field sets, where you have more than one of the same type? For example two addresses for an entry with their type both set as “Work”? If you do, only one of a type will be exported so when you update you will lose one of the “Work” addresses. Hope that make sense!
Hope this helps, let me know.11/02/2017 at 12:41 pm #439705Richard CardonaParticipant
