Content Uploader Documentation

First of all, you need a .xls, .ooc or .csv file which contains the data you wish to upload. Each row of data will be saved as one article/k2 item/web link/contact/admintools redirect in Joomla!.
Once you have installed the component you need to set certain parameters before you can upload any data. When uploading articles these parameters are called "First Data Row", "Intro Text Format" and "Content Text Format".

"First Data Row" refers to the first row of data that should be saved as an article. If you have column descriptors in row 1 you should set this value to row 2. "Intro Text Format" and "Content Format" are parameters that allow you to specify how the data will be presented in the articles. At least one of these parameters must be set in order to upload articles and they should contain references to the columns from the Excel workbook in placeholders like so:  {A}

Download the demo spreadsheets to use with the pre-installed configurations from here.

Here is a short video to demonstrate how easy it is to upload Joomla core articles:

JsIFR3

To enable JsIFR3 on your website all you have to do is install the plugin and enable it in the Joomla! plugin manager. The default settings should already replace several headings on your Joomla website.

In case you are not familiar with CSS and/or HTML, do the following to understand what gets replaced where on your site:

1. Right click on your site and "view source code"
2. Search (ctrl+f) for whatever words that need font replacement (like the title of an article) and look for their "class". (see examples below)
3. Copy the corresponding class or id name into the JsIFR3 configuration and refresh your site.
(note the period preceeding "classes" and the hashtag preceeding "ids")

Some examples of what it might look like on your site:

Content Headers:

HTML-code:  <div class="contentheading">Title of Article</div>
JsIFR configuration - css-selector:  .contentheading

Items from a list Menu:

HTML-code: <div class="menu"><ul><li><a href="/index.php>Home</a></li></ul></div>
JsIFR configuration - css-selector: .menu li

Links:

HTML-code: <div id="link_container"><a href="http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu">some link</a></div>
JsIFR configuration - css-selector: #link_container

defines the style of whatever comes after these tags
to be put in your JsIFR3 configuration in order to be replaced

If you have trouble finding the right css-selector please use our forums and we will do our best to help you.

Like printing money
The Content Uploader is like cash in your pocket. Time is money, and making it easier to build Joomla sites is like a printing press. Even my novice users understand spreadsheets. They LOVE Content Uploader Pro, and giving them a quick way to create content makes them very happy...

Fantastic component,
great service. Looking down the barrel of a massive amount of data-entry for a client's site, we were delighted to find Content Uploader Pro. (...) Once we'd correctly setup the sections and categories the import was a piece of cake - literally saved us days of work.
Troubadour
Great component
and even greater service. This component really made uploading content very efficient. you can upload hundreds of articles at once with full control on every aspect of the article. with the new version it even allows easy multilingual support with joomfish and also the ability to update articles.
