CSVI Pro 4.1

Steaming from the oven, here is CSVI Pro 4.1. This release does not only bring fixes but also new features. What you will find in this release is:


  • Fixed VirtueMart transliteration
  • Fixed image options
  • Fixed VirtueMart product import custom fields missing ID field
  • Changed replacement fields to allow for multiple rules


  • Fixed VirtueMart category details export
  • Fixed export to e-mail
  • Fixed VirtueMart media import not linking to products
  • Added Akeeba subscriptions export options
  • Fixed VirtueMart calculation rule category export
  • Fixed VirtueMart rating export publish field
  • Fixed VirtueMart shopperfield export publish field
  • Changed replacement fields to allow for multiple rules


  • Added multiple values option
  • Changed size of find and replace fields
  • Changed replace field not to be mandatory


  • Added always load en-GB as backup language
  • Changed use of INFORMATON_SCHEMA as shared hosts don't always allow this

As you can see a lot of work has been put into this release, as always ;) The biggest feature is the changes to the replacement feature. You can now add multiple replacement rules to a single field, this can be used to replace a field with multiple values. Further you can now also do multiple value replacements. This means that you can search a field for value ab,cd and ef, when they are found they can be replaced with 12,34 and 56. A tutorial will be made later this week to explain the usage in detail.

The new CSVI Pro 4.1 can be downloaded from the download section if you have an active subscription.

There is no update yet for CSVI 4.0, this will follow next week.

CSVI Analyzer

Let me introduce to you CSVI Analyzer. The tool to check your CSV file for possible issues.

  2. Check/Uncheck if your file has column headers

Excellent Component, features & support
5 stars
I have used the full/pro versions of CSVI for a few years now & I would recommend it to anybody with a virtuemart site or site where you may need to import anything else.
Not only does it work brilliantly for Virtuemart Stores, but there are also other standard templates for AWO EZ Reality, K2 AUP, Joomla Articles, Users and lots more.
If its not already set up, you can also use the custom field settings & the developer Roland is always on hand providing excellent support and solutions to your CSV related problems.

Roland has helped me out on many occasions with basic CSV stuff and more complicated bespoke CSVi templates.

It's awesome - Really & will save you hours manually inputting products, articles, coupons, etc.

Try the free version & if you like it buy the Pro version as it's easily worth the price you pay.
