I managed to purchase without a hitch, I have downloaded and installed
your plugin for BLM file conversion onto my test server.
Am I right in thinking that the plugin can’t work independentally without
WP ALL Import Pro?
In the short term I was hoping to use your plugin to convert the BLM file
and atleast get some dummy data into my site so I can build the custom
post types correctly.
Would love to know your thoughts
I have installed the non pro version of WP ALL Import.
Now I can upload a .blm file via that BUT it is not supported. How do I get your plugin to convert the file if I have no way of importing it?
The PRO element of WP All Import is only required if you want straight through processing, as the trigger in All Import is a PRO feature.
For Dummy data you can use the free all import.
The plugin is built to porocess a file that has been sent to your WordPress server from an agency backoffice by FTP. So for testing you don’t use the media upload (it would end up in the wrong place anyway ) but do it via FTP.
The documentation http://quantabay.com/category/documentation/ explains more.
Let me know if you need further clarification.
“and atleast get some dummy data into my site so I can build the custom

I would recommend creating the CPT first and adding at least one custom field AND dummy populate it manually e.g. price to the CPT as the WP All Import you need to specify the CPT first and when you get to custom fields they don’t seem to show up unless they have been used at least once (probably a WordPress thing)
Hope that saves you some grief!
