    I am looking for same thing.

    I have so many Categories and SubCategories and it is taking me way too long.

    Be nice to Import the Category NAME | Slug | Parent | and Description

    with 1000 categories it might take some time adding descriptions after.
    I have a plugin that does it for pages, just can’t see how for categories

    Try the attached plugin. It creates categories with subcategories and their description. The CSV does not use any headers, just put your data in three columns in this order:
    Parent, Category, Description

    Kind regards,

    Richard,

    is there any way to get this plugin to work with my Custom Categories.

    Not sure if you remember helping me on the CSV Import Tool for my Products.

    Now I need help with a way to get the Custom Categories Imported.

    I will pay for your help.

    CUSTOM DESIGNS are nice but a pain in the butt.

    I believe it should work with your custom taxonomies.

    Richard could you post an EXAMPLE Import File.

    The one I created following your instructions does not work.
