We have to import our listings because the data changes so much. When importing, not all of the records pull from the csv file as they’re supposed to. I’ve attached a screenshot of the issue. I’ve tried to go into the data and see if there are similarities between the ones that won’t appear the way they are supposed to.March 11, 2016 at 1:51 PM #39507March 11, 2016 at 2:31 PM #39510
3.1 This has ALWAYS been an issue since we first purchased a few months ago.
We assumed there might be a problem in our spreadsheet. We’re not finding an error there.
I would like to know why each store doesn’t import like others that are importing correctly. In the image you’ll notice that “Kaleb” is correct. “Maxwell” and “Nelia” are not. It isn’t just places around Fishers, IN. This happens all across the map. “Hattie” in Broadway, NC for example.March 13, 2016 at 3:55 PM #39550
What is 3.1? Is that a version of something? WP, or other add-on?
SLP is on 4.4.30 and works best with WP 4.4
Can you provide your Store Locator Plus Plugin environment (can be found under the SLP INFO [panel) and your site URL where your SLP page loads.
Please read the Posting guidelines, without the info we will not be able to answer your specific question.
The file you attached does not have the correct Sl header rows. In Your file on the first “header: row the first entry is request date, that will not be recognized as an import field into SLP, having a date format will also not be recognized and will also cause issues, the words in bold and italics will not import properly.
Request Date,Store,Age,City,State,Tryke,Cost,Amount Raised,URL,Image,My Story,Description,Tags,Rank
You MUST have the CSV file and field names in the exact order: Base Field Names
These are the fields provided by Store Locator Plus that can be imported by the CSV file. The header field names should be entered exactly as listed below: Items with two options can use either option, the faster processing option is listed first.
sl_id , id
sl_store , store
sl_address , address
sl_address2 , address2
sl_city , city
sl_zip , zip
sl_country , country
sl_latitude , latitude

Please note that you can add extended data but the header rows must be recognized and in the correct order When you import,
Instead of trying to change the import data columns to get the results you want to appear under the store (childs name) just change the Results Layout and add the extended data fields string. You can change the order under the Results Layout so that the extended data field “age” for instance will appear in a different order
