You will be please to use the latest version of CJ-Datafeed.
I redesign the admin interface to take advantage of the WP functions to display nice form and user messages. I implement some security features too. I now use the function “nounce” that WP provide to prevent malicious access to CJ-Datafeed forms.
I fixed several bugs in the post import loop. I also fix the categories creation and timestamp for future post. It’s was very ugly … I lacked WP knowledge when I first wrote the code. Lucky you, I’m getting better everyday !
I’m now trying to implement what I learn from my new book Professional WordPress Plugin Development. It’s a real must have for serious WP coders. I should have this one earlier…
WP Multisites is still not supported but it will be soon. I had to fix the upload process to support MU installation.
Coding and fixing things is time consuming, your support is vital. If you are a active user and enjoy CJ-Datafeed, don’t forget to share your success with a donation.
