If you have ever been a web master, you would probably know joomla project or even use it for managing your web contents. It is easy to use and deploy. The only thing to do before using joomla should you have Apache and Php 5+ installed on your own server or hosting server. For SEF convenience, better have mod_rewrite on Apache server.
During the mainteinance of the joomla website, I was getting tired for adding new articles and other contents, that is, you have click on the “Add” button, type all the contents(or copy them from your notepad) to the relevant page, then press “Save” or “Apply” so that the new article is post. Then if you have another article to post, you have to go back to ground-zero and repeat the steps. 5 articles in all in one time gonna kill me, how about you get 20 more to post in one time? So that is the original idea for me to design a joomla component called KIMPORT. That component save my time adding the new contents. KIMPORT now becomes an administrator-oriented utility for manipulating the data table. Before adding new contents, you just fill in a specific excel file (2003) in a certain paradigm and then upload the excel with the component, then you got your data filled in the data table. The setup and the instruction guides please refer to the new post of my blog.
The initial version of KIMPORT is 1.5.0, which means it’s native for joomla 1.5.x. Since joomla 1.5.x is GPLv3.0, the license for KIMPORT is GPLv3.0 as well.
You can download the project source code with any SVN client:
svn checkout http://kimport.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ kimport-read-only
Or just only download the package for installation:
