Thanks Katz!

Can you help him to submit this stuff to the marketplace as well? Let me know if I can help as well...

Is this Add-On anywhere available now? Would be great :)

Thanks!


PS: After looking at examples, would it be possible to also create Content for a specific Blocktype if the Pagetype is defined?

I look for some bulk-creation-tool

Ok, just found it in the thread. Hope this will work with recent C5 version. Since Katz' website seems down, will this AddOn ever be finished?

If you can't get the csv to page addon working, you can achieve similar using Magic Data Forms to read the csv and then Black Magic Data to create the pages.

Ha! I was assuming that your Magic Date Suite was capable of something like that :)

Most important function for me is the possibility to upload Content from the CSV. It does not need to go into a TinyMCE Block, HTML block would be fine. So assuming I create a pagetype "Bulk" with "Content Area1", "Content Area2" etc.

I need to be able to upload a CSV with the columns:

"PageType, PageTitle, PageDescription, ContentArea1, ContentArea2"

I was searching your website for BlackMagic Docs but could find anything. Is this possible to do?

If you go to
http://www.c5magic.co.uk/add-ons/magic-data/symbols-documantation/...
and filter to Black Magic Data, you will see what you can do to create pages and populate content. Symbols particularly relevant are:
CREATE_​PAGE
SAVE_​HTML_​TO_​PAGE
SAVE_​CONTENT_​TO_​PAGE

For the input, Magic Data Forms has a CSV interface that can be read using the form result symbols.

So you could write MD to read a csv, loop through line by line, create a page using a page type, and add content or html blocks.

You could run the expression from the symbol tester, from a Magic Data Direct block, or from a Magic Job.
