Introduction

Automatic Articles, Data Import & Export, Mass Content, Content Construction, K2 extensions

The Content Uploader, formerly known as the Excel Uploader, is an innovative tool designed to streamline the process of importing data from spreadsheets directly into your Joomla website. This functionality is particularly advantageous for website creators seeking an efficient way of populating their sites with existing content. By utilizing the Content Uploader, each row within an Excel sheet can seamlessly translate into a new item on the website. Further, you can download existing content in form of an Excel spreadsheet, which comes in particularly handy as a backup or to import it again on a different site, for example when migrating from one Joomla version to another.


The following items can be imported and exported:

  • Joomla Articles
  • K2 Items
  • J2Store Products
  • K2Store Products
  • Contacts
  • Weblinks
  • Akeeba Admintools URL Redirections

This feature holds significant appeal for users who prioritize time efficiency, as it eliminates the need for a labor-intensive, manual item creation process. Instead of individually crafting items, users can leverage the spreadsheet format to input data in a structured manner, allowing for a bulk upload that translates seamlessly into multiple items on their site.

The Content Uploader supports a variety of file types, including xlsx, xls, csv, and ooc. This versatility ensures compatibility with different spreadsheet formats, catering to a broader range of user preferences and existing data structures.

Functionality
It greatly speeds up work with SEO on the website.
If you have a lot of simple, repetitive articles to add, use this or a paid add-on
Ease of use
The full version of the module is easier to use, but with the free version you can also do a lot, it speeds up your SEO work
Support
Very good help - which is rare in the free version.
The developer helped me and was very nice and understanding
Documentation
I used this to: I use it to create many SEO subpages. In XML, I provide variables and generate unique pages for positioning
Functionality
Excellent, Set the columns in the config, save config, point it at the file and press import. Review you new articles.
Ease of use
The interface is very simple and is laid out similar to the article page so it is easy to find and set the values you want to import.
Support
Excellent, I had an issue when I first installed the extension so I contacted the support email. I had a resolution within hours.
Documentation
The documentation is fairly basic but the extension is not particularly complicated to use so it does not need to be.
I used this to: The website I am working on has a large back catalogue of newsletters as pdf files. With this extension I was able to create a new article for each pdf including text content, cover images, download links and setting the created date of the article to the original published date
Functionality
Once I used a different version (3.0.0) it functioned correctly for me.
Ease of use
As far as setting it up and running, it is very easy to use. It is very straightforward.
Support
I had an issue wherein support just gave up on me.
I was using version 3.4.2. I had to load version 3.0.0 to work.
Documentation
Documentation is clear and easy to understand. In most cases, one need only refer to it once or twice.
I used this to: Creating 300 pages for graduating Seniors from our local community college.

It Works fine!



Posted on 17 October 2016
Functionality
I imported over 450 articles with Excel file (.xls) in minutes,
just works fine as said.
Ease of use
Takes a little time to understand all the settings.
I think it's need a better user interface.
Documentation
Can be more specific for end users, it's more like a tech note now.
The hints popup in admin area says much more than formal Documentation.
I used this to: Import articles from non-joomla based content though hand-made excel files,
50 articles a time.
Functionality
Brings in the articles fine but jumbles up the categories. Half of the Imported articles wound up in the WRONG categories.
Ease of use
Simple to use but categories do not import correctly.

Functionality
This extension is a real time-saver when it comes to creating large amounts of articles. Setup is straight forward.
Ease of use
Setup takes a bit of time but once it's done you just select your Excel file and press upload. Couldn't be easier to created bulk articles.
Support
Didn't require support for the free version. I switched to the pro version as I needed more features and support was superb.
Documentation
There is a video on the website which explains how it works. Also every config option is explained with tooltips. Excellent!
I used this to: Product catalog

Saved me so much time!



Posted on 30 November 2012
This saved me so much time and the articles I uploaded as sheets helped my SEO rating so much, thanks for this great extension! Masterpiece of simplicity!

Great helper



Posted on 28 October 2012
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 funppt.com and pptfree.com. 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.

Not enough documentation



Posted on 25 March 2010
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.
Owner's reply: 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.
