Pricing

You may have seen some references on our site to annual licensing or renewals.

All plugins currently come with a lifetime license, no matter what the site says.

We’re currently running tests before we make the switch to annual pricing. Check the Discounts tab to purchase our other plugins and get a lifetime license before they’re gone.

I Understand I Have a Lifetime License
Now is your last chance to buy a lifetime license before we switch to annual pricing. Existing licenses will be unaffected.

Variable Number Of Images Per Post

Sometimes, each record in your XML or CSV file will have a different number of images associated with it. Below are some of the most common ways to handle this scenario with WP All Import.

All settings shown are available in the Images section of the Drag & Drop screen.

Option A: Image URLs Are Stored In A Single Column Or Element, And Separated By A Character

Simply drag & drop the column or element containing your image URLs or filenames to the appropriate textbox, and change the Separator character if it is different than a comma.

Option B: Image URLs are Contained In Different CSV Columns or XML Elements

WP All Import will ignore any blank image URLs, so you can simply specify all possible XPaths that could potentially point to image URLs for certain records. Any that don’t point to image URLs for the current record will be ignored for that record.

1. Go to the record in your XML or CSV file that has the most images in the XML/CSV tree on the right. You can do this by entering the record number and then clicking anywhere on the XML/CSV tree:

2. Drag & drop all the elements or columns containing image URLs into the image URLs box.

Download Nine Images From URLs

Although you can’t see it in the screenshot, in our example, record 179, has 9 different images.

No other records have 9 different images; they have between 1 and 8. WP All Import will simply ignore {image_9[1]} for these other records.

Option C: Use an XPath query or a FOREACH Loop

If all your image URLs are stored as child elements of some parent element, you can use a FOREACH loop to loop through each child element.

This is only applicable to XML files.

Example XML:

<images>
    <image src=”image1.jpg” alt=”i am first image”>Featured Image</image>
    <image src=”image2.jpg” alt=”this is image2″>Second Image</image>
    <image src=”image3.jpg” alt=”this is image3″>Third Image</image>
    <image src=”image4.jpg” alt=”this is image4″>Fourth Image</image>
</images>

You can use this XPath query to output a comma-delimited list of the image names:

{images/image/@src}

Or, if you need to prepend a URL or add something else to the data, you can use a FOREACH loop instead:

[FOREACH({images/image})]
http://www.example.com/my-folder/{@src},
[ENDFOREACH]

To learn more about FOREACH loops, please read Processing and Grouping Multiple Elements with FOREACH Loops.
