- fixed some bugs

It is good for SEO, and for fast content import.

Elite-XL did exactly what it supposed to do. Exporting Articles into Excel file (or create your own) and then Import the excel file.
Ease of use
The buttons and layout is straight forward and Elite-XL is very easy to use.
I had an error (but was due to my environment and not Elite-XL). I logged the error with Emi, and they sort it out very fast. 10 Stars!!!!
The documentation is easy to read and understand. I had no problem following the instructions.
Value for money
Definitely. Money will spent. Compared to the other available components and for what I need, I was glad to find this component.
I used this to: Importing self-created excel file with article records from another non-Joomla application. I just had to get my data records in the same format, then import. As expected, only the categories with articles was exported in the article records, and created in the import.
excellent. its the only extension i found that easily gives me the joomla article id
Ease of use
very intuitive - just click a button!
not needed
Value for money
Does exactly what i need 10/10
