To create your Import file, the simplest method is to export your Testimonials, and use the CSV file you will download as a template. Just go to the Import & Export tab under the Easy Testimonials menu in WordPress, and then click Export – this will prompt you to download the CSV file which you can use as a template.

Or, you can simply click here to download an example CSV file for Easy Testimonials Pro.

We recommend using a spreadsheet program like Excel to create your CSV file. When saving your CSV, if you are prompted for a choice between Windows/MS-DOS and Macintosh formats, choose Windows / MS-DOS.

Please note: create any necessary categories beforehand and use their IDs in the Categories column. Testimonial Category IDs that don’t match any existing categories will be ignored during the import.

Once you have your CSV, navigate to the Import Testimonials tab on the Import & Export page, and select your file. Follow the instructions on the wizard from there to import your file. Easy Testimonials imports your testimonials in the background, so it can easily handle very large files (thousands of rows are fine).
