Great news, we’ve just uploaded CSVPiG 2.2 to the BlogPiG members’ area! You should download it straight away and get it activated on your blogs.
We’ve also updated the User Guide which is available inside your members’ area.
Some of the new features will only be available if you have a CSVPiG Pro license – you can always upgrade inside the BlogPiG members’ area.
So what’s New in CSVPiG 2.2?
1. Well, along with all the usual tweaks and fixes we’ve added a great new feature that allows you to update existing posts with a new CSV import. You get to choose which unique field CSVPiG uses to match existing posts. We recommend using the post slug but you can use any unique field that you’ve included as a custom field, for example, ID number. To illustrate the benefit: this means that you could upload a thousand products from a golf merchant datafeed and then if in the future that merchant decides to drop their prices by 10% all you would have to do is upload the new datafeed and CVSPiG automatically alters ONLY the pricing information on all your published & scheduled posts. This feature was requested by CSVPiG Pro user Tod.
2. The Post Template Designer’s ‘drag & drop’ functionality now works in ALL browsers – previously only Firefox users had access to this slick system.
3. You can now import CSV files without column headers – your tokens in the Post Template Designer will simply be numbers rather than actual header text.
4. In addition you can also specify any field separator you want before uploading your CSV files. Are Clickbank datafeeds using pipe delimiters rather than commas? Not a problem, just enter the delimiter and CSVPiG takes care of the rest.
If you have feedback about any of the new features you can leave a comment below.
Development is really picking up pace here at BlogPiG and we have new releases of TagPiG & CommentPiG ready to go. Please don’t forget we’re a Community Driven Development company – you ask and we build (as long as we agree it’s a good idea of course!). The best place to discuss new ideas is in the support forums, so head on over and tell us want you want to see next.
