Content Uploader Component

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
Formerly known as the Excel Uploader. The Content Uploader will allow you to upload data from a spreadsheet directly into articles! This means that each row from your excel sheet will create one new article on your site. Website creators who want to populate a site quickly by importing existing articles, will find this particuarly useful as it eliminates a time consuming, manual process.

File types supported: xlsx, xls, csv, ooc.

Being a new Joomla! user trying to tackle uploading 200+ articles, this is a life saver. Really easy to use!

I have installed this free utility and uploaded 13000 articles (one liner) in one shot to add link for downloading of 13000 powerpoint shows from my site and Unimaginable. Manually, this would have taken 2 months. However, it may be noted that Word articles are uploaded as one paragraph without any paragraph break unless you add html tags before and after each paragraph in the word file.

Usually I will be very careful to write my comments, most of time I do not read documentation & figure out by itself how would this extension would work, because I have used hundreds of extension & soon wanted to publish a website which contain maximum extension used.
I am sure this extension would be simplest & easy to use, but I was unable to figure out, & try to read documentation which nothing explain except to setup “parameters” then spend a lot of time in Forum but there is not a single clue after uploading file (article) then { what next ? } Shell we use [ Syntax ] in (article) or will there be [ embedded ] button will show up ?

I will give suggestion like Peter van Westen (from nonumber) has published 12 extension and most of them are popular simply because he did not wrote long documentation but rather quite simple & easy word few images, steps by step like a guide to new joomla user, although most of his extension would be used for advance & at complex level & to make it easy & simple.
I will be glad to support and I am sure there is positional but it is frustrating and hidden yet.

Hi Naseem,

I realise the documentation is pretty sparse just now and a similar remark to yours was made in our forum. As a result, there is now a document available on our site that explains what can be entered for each parameter. You can get it here:

There will also be a tutorial videos on the demo site in the next few days.

The lack of a mass import solution has been a major weakness of Joomla for quite some time. I have not had time to extensively test the extension, but it seems to be an answer to this problem. As somebody who uses excel alot, this is a godsend! The main thing that could use would is the documentation, there is not much right now.

This component has a big potential...really! (sorry for my english, I'm italian)

The autor should consider:
- adding an example excel file (call it a template, a starting point for new users)
- adding more detailed documentation
- the component should not strip out html tags that finds in the table fields (except from the first column=title).

You should consider also making a new component similar to this one, dedicated to joomfish: imagine the possibility to upload translations for a large number of articles at once!

I'm available to support this project by translating in italian
