    This is real setback for me and means that I have to go searching for another plugin to do the job. A really, really bad thing.

    Is there any way you could point me to how to add php to include the custom fields I have included in the posts (again, it’s only text fields) when importing csv?

    I can see that the class.entry-import-csv.php includes lines like:

    // Set the notes.
    if ( isset( $row->notes ) && ! empty( $row->notes ) ) $entry->setNotes( $row->notes );
    

    So, could it be a matter of including a couple of new lines with the name of the new custom fields?

    Maybe you have the time to guide me? (What would that cost?) Otherwise, I will need to abandon Connections and serach for another plugin. It’s smoething I really don’t want to do….

    Is there any way at all, I can somehow get CSV import to import into my custom fields? I have totally relied on Connections to be the plugin for my site and worked on it to look and function good.

    Now, I have to find a completely new solution unless this CSV import problem can be solved.

    Oh, how I hope it can be done somehow.

    Thank you!

    Ok, I’ll go with Say What? + short code. I gotta say, customizing this plugin is a little difficult. I still think it’s pretty normal in many plugins that you can easily change the label…

    Thanks for your replies. It means so much that you actually reply!

    So, basically, I can show custom fields (and yes, I am talking about ordinary text fields, nothing fancy), but I cannot CSV import to these custom fields?

    Because I read (sorry to quote you again, but I have been/am searching eagerly for a solution)

    CVS Import will have an update release at the same time to support the
    ability of plugins that add custom fields to also extend the import
    importing into those custom fields from a CSV file.

    I can see that you wrote the following:

    With that said… I did build one thing into the core Connections and
    its core templates. Watch the first video again… Anything entered into
    the custom fields metabox will be displayed on any of the core
    templates as an unordered list. So one can put add any textual based
    meta to any specific entry.

    I tried inserting a couple of custom fields, but they don’t show up – not in Slim Plus, not in the default template. I am confused….

    I hope you can help.

    But wait. I am confused. Again.
    When adding a post in Connections it does say ‘Add New Custom Field’ at the bottom of the page…Isn’t that exactly what I am looking for? How do I make this custom field show up in a theme like Slim Plus?

    That’s horrible news…

    By the way, in this post you state the following. That got my confused. Your support is fantastic, but there is so much information floating around on this forum. It would be great with even more tutorials…

    re: I will also need to rename them

    This can be done pretty easily,
    see this QuickTip. This basically would only affect the admin add/edit
    entry form though.

    Thanks!
    However, it’s not working for me.
    I used Say What? to change: Biographical Info > xxx.
    In the backend it has changed, but on the site, it reads ‘Biography’.
    I also read this post from you, saying that Say What only works in the backend….

    So, I read in another post this from you:

    If you’re trying to change the “show Bio” … then my instructions
    change a bit because that depends on the version you’re using.

    Versions >= 4.1: Use Say What? but since this is a template specific
    string you need to use the text domain cnt_cmap instead of
    connections.

    What text domain should I use in order to change labels in the Slim Plus template? And how would I find that out myself?

    PS: It would be good with some QuickTips describing this…

    The Say What? plugin only changes the backend, right?

    So, I would need to use both the Say What? plugin AND short code adjustments, like [connections str_cell_phone='Mobile']. Right?

    I think it would be a very useful (and pretty standard) adjustment of Connections to make it possible to change the labels easily within the plugin settings.
