Hi valued members,

I am looking for ways to mass import/create posts into my 6.11.5 b2evolution setup They are from some other exotic cms that I have to give up on. Basically I will create a cvs, tsv or xml file from my database with values like this (using "|" as a separator in this case):

Link-to-url|image-file-url|Excerpt

It will display on a blog/collection with a teaser image (image-file-url) linking to an external url (Link-to-url) and display of an excerpt (Excerpt) underneath the teaser image.

What would be the best way of achieving this?

/backend/system/ Maintenance/Import is your best bet.

If it doesn't work for your old CMS Your going to have to find a coder.

Thanks for your input.

I am wondering about the 'mass create posts" function in contents section. I can not find a description regarding the syntax for this function. Can this be used to mass import posts and populate data fields?

Would you want to download the image on to b2evolution or just reference it with an <img> tag?
