Yes, in some mobile browsers this functionality may not work.

Recommended to use modern desktop browsers.

I can't paste clubs into the away club column. It used to work

Do you have the clubs with the exact name on your site?

What number of rows do you want to insert at a time?

hi, the first time i will import only the matches without dates, every week i will update the csv with dates, times, venues and scores. I want to ask if the table with the matches makes duplikates or its ok to use this easy method. Thanks.



Yes, this tool will create duplicates in your situation. 


P.S.: I'll think of making the possibility to update games with this tool.


Using this tools to update the results would save a lot of time every week

i tried to import match results with the import tool , actually 80% of the imported resulted are not correct and i don't know why however the pasted value are correct.

I deleted the imported match results and tried to paste one by one , it gives the same incorrect result.

so i added the matches without any results and i started to add the result for each match manually.

Is there any thing here that i am missing ?

Try to disable all plugins except Football Leagues and test.

Check that you don't have any spaces before 1.

same issues still existing even after disabling 90% from the addons except those who are related with critical settings

Is there a way to update the Matches? I tested with "Wp all import plugin" and the data was updated, the problem is I have to re-publish every match to see the change.

Nope. This tool is for added initial data.

an easier way to update matches would be tremendously useful

Which is the field that made the match publish after is update in a bulk process?

We are using Wp all import and we can update data in custom post. We have update all this field: _anwpfl_match_goals_home, _anwpfl_match_goals_away, _anwpfl_status as "result" and _anwpfl_match_stats.

The problem is that after the csv is updated the match did no reflect the Final Match result. Which is the field that made that the match is finish and updated as "result"?

PD: After the Bulk update we need to enter into the match on the backend and save to have the match correctly.

Yes. You can recalculate all stats from plugin settings.

Create a private ticket, and I'll tell you how to activate this option.
