Please post some sample CSV data that you are using. And also the settings file. That will help me with the troubleshooting. Ganeshk (talk) 16:04, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
It is OK now, may be internet connection problems. Thanks.--Cheers! (talk) 16:51, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
Great. What's the project that you are using it for? Ganeshk (talk) 17:52, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
I use it to create, maintenance articles in vi.wikipedia by bot account. Bot do more than 1 million edits by using this tool. Thank you so much.--Cheers! (talk) 03:02, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
Glad to hear that. You are welcome. Ganeshk (talk) 14:39, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

Is it possible extract data from a particular web?[edit]

Is it possible extract data from Tamil lexicon( 1924-1936) ?--தகவலுழவன் (talk) 02:29, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Yes, it is possible to extract the data by increasing the number in the url (p.0.tamillex, p.1.tamillex, p.2.tamillex etc). Someone will need to write a HTML scraper program for it. I am sorry; I don't have time to write that program. Ganeshk (talk) 02:55, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
It may be easier to write to the e-mail address, and ask them if they can provide the information through a easy download like MS Access. I found the e-mail address on the footer of home page, Ganeshk (talk) 03:00, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
thank you. I am trying to get the data. If i achieved, i will inform you.--தகவலுழவன் (talk) 06:15, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

CSVLoader does not function anymore?[edit]

Recently we switched to AWB version, and in this version it does seem to me that CSVLoader is not functioning properly. I tried to do a search and replace, but the csv-data were not replaced properly. As a test I tried a simple prepend of a couple of words, but that didn't come through either. Kind regard, Lymantria (talk) 09:38, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi @Lymantria:: Will check and let you know. Thanks. Ganeshk (talk) 21:58, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

@Lymantria, +1. For me also not work. XXN (talk) 22:04, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

@Lymantria:, @XXN:, I am back on Wikipedia after a long break. What exactly is the problem? Can you give me an example? Thanks. Ganeshk (talk) 06:39, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
My problem had to do with redirects and is recognised and thereby solved. If the page name one uses for CSVloader is a redirect, the data are not uploaded. Kind regards, Lymantria (talk) 08:07, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
@Lymantria:, Yes, AWB does process redirects into their target articles and that will cause mismatch between what is loaded and what is listed. I am glad to hear that it was resolved. Ganeshk (talk) 12:25, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Creating lower case entries on Wiktionary[edit]

Hi, is there a way to set the new articles (or "entries" as their called on Wiktionary) to be specifically in lower case? As this is an important distinction on Wikt. (at least for writing systems that differentiate between cases, Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, etc.)

I saw that automatic capitalization was introduced in version 15 (as this is best for Wikipedia) perhaps the version 14 could be made available for download (that seems like the quickest workaround.) (Unless it has serious bugs.) Neitrāls vārds (talk) 11:17, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi @Neitrāls vārds:, I have now disabled the capitalization on other wikis. I have limited the capitalization only to English Wikipedia. Please download the new version, and test it. Thanks. Ganeshk (talk) 06:37, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
Once Neitrāls vārds asked me about the earlier version but i am not able to help him. Thanks indeed for your new version, I tested. well. No auto-capitalization. With a help of my friend, I am trying to built google spreadsheet uploader and i will convey good news about it. This is because of your plug-in experiences.Hearty thanks, brother.--தகவலுழவன் (talk) 03:09, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
Great news, thanks! I hope to try it out if I'll find time to edit Wiktionary! Neitrāls vārds (talk) 02:13, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Option to create lists[edit]

Dear Author! Could you please explain, what the option "Create lists" does? I was unable to find out any clues =) Sincerely, with many thanks fou your plugin, --Akim Dubrow (talk) 12:45, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi @Akim Dubrow:, Create lists function helps create bulleted lists from CSV data. For example, if you have a list of cities in a column, firstcol,Chennai^Mumbai^Kolkata,thirdcol. CSVLoader will find that the second column has ^ character and split the column into a bulleted list like this:
  • Chennai
  • Mumbai
  • Kolkata
I had used it to create species lists on genus pages like, Hemimarginula. Ganeshk (talk) 02:12, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
