CSV Import: URL not importing

Hi,

Performing some test imports of a CSV into a new installation of the Business Directory Plugin, I noticed that URLs were not importing.  Everything else imported fine.

I double-checked the Header in the CSV as well as the Form Field name set up in the plugin to make sure everything matched.

Because it was a URL Field, I even went through and added http:// to the beginning of all the websites.

Still, they weren't importing.

 

Solution that allowed import from CSV:

Then I changed the Form Field type for Website found under Directory Admin > Manage Form Fields from URL Field to Textfield and … bazinga! … the websites imported.

So it seems there may be a small import bug.

IF the Form Field type is set to URL Field, Then websites will not be imported from the CSV.

If I change it to Textfield then they will import.

 

Thanks for a great directory plugin!

Mike

Just making sure this was fixed in version 3.2.3? Only asking because I didn't see it mentioned in the detail notes.
