It seems to actually break the import process. I had to get server logs to give me this info from my host. Don’t use it until repaired.

No longer works, tested with 6.2 and followed their video guide (and common sense), wasted 30 minutes. Use “WP Import Export Lite” instead, that worked first time. Did contact their support directly, replied within 2 days, they said it works OK, but it clearly does not as the yoast fields are not populated.

I am looking for a solution here and found this plugin, but even though it’s reading the excel file, it’s not replacing already made SEO with new data in the xl file. Going to keep messing with it, but it’s not seeming to work, I’m using 8.0 Php. going to try backing into the older version to see if it works.
