    Having tried your csv import tool (not working for categories) Is there any solution that will allow import of categories / sub category / slug /and description from a csv file.

    I have 26K in categories (its just the way things are set up)

    I tried using really Simple CSV Import https://wordpress.org/plugins/really-simple-csv-importer/

    and get the following error:
    Note: Please include post_type value if that is possible.
    Content, title, and excerpt are empty.
    WP_Post object is not set.
    WP_Post object is not set.
    WP_Post object is not set.

    Also tried https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-ultimate-csv-importer/ but it does not import the category – it will however export.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks for the input. I did try but as my db is quite large it died and crashed the sql.

    To avoid that in future, first test with 5-10 input.

    It was an export of data so I could see the structure for an import.
