Importing urls from CSV

edited November 16 in GSA Website Contact
Dear Sven,
I am trying to import a list of URLs to an existing project.
I already imported a list of URLs from a regular txt file and it worked without a problem.
But I also want to import URLs from CSV file because i want to have a few other columns, so that each URL has a few more values that i can use in my messages in order to make each message more unique. As far as I know, this is not possible with a regular txt file. Am i correct?

But no matter what i do, the program simply does not import the CSV data correctly and no new URLs are being added to the URL list of the project.

And yes, I already know that "Also after import you will NOT see new columns in the site listing, but you see CSV Data details in a mouse over hint." but in my case no new rows (URLs) were added to the project at all!

Can you please explain EXACTLY WHERE in the program should i import the CSV file?
And what exact CSV file format should i use?
I tried CSV-UTF 8 and also CSV COMMA DELIMITED but none worked!
Do I have to save the CSV file in a special way in order to be able to import it into the program??

Many thanks,
Z

  • UPDATE: OK, I feagured out what was the problem.
    When I save to CSV with excel, the default saving will not wrap the values with " "
    And the program does not recognize the data in the CSV file.
    I found a way to wrap the values inside the csv file, it takes a little more time but not the end of the world.
    If the program could recognize CSV file with the default excel format that would be fantastic.

    I could not upload a csv file to this message because csv file type is not allowed. please write me your email address so i can send it directly there.
    By the way, you deserve A MILLION THANKS for adding the an option to make the GUI size larger, it's the first time I noticed this feature. Thank you thank you thank you for that. I struggle with this super small annoying fonts for a long time, but not anymore :)

    Is it possible to change the GUI size also with Search Engine Ranker? and what about the GUI size of captcha breaker?
