The first time I talked here about the Feed Element Mapper, it was still quite basic — it just mapped feed elements recognized by FeedAPI to taxonomy terms. That was already pretty cool, but what about mapping to CCK fields, and what about mapping any tag — even custom ones — to CCK fields?
Well, the latest developer version of FeedAPI (Jan 23rd), together with Feed Element Mapper 1.0 beta 3, can do this. It offers a straight forward form manageable also for the not so experienced site builder. I recorded this screencast to show you how this plays out on the UI:
If you would like to try this, take care that you do the following:
- Use FeedAPI 1.0
- Use Feed Element Mapper >= 1.0 beta 3
- Configure your feeds to use parser_simplepie as parser.
