How to Import a Spreadsheet Into Your WordPress Website
I was just going through my Google Sheets (which is basically a free-form spreadsheet that you can use to store all of your website content ideas and organize them into a digital notebook) when I came across an Excel file that I knew would be useful to my WordPress self-hosted blog. I’m sure that you’ve seen many bloggers’ posts that begin with, “Hey, everyone. So, I have this blogger problem …” Basically, these are problems that many WordPress users encounter (especially those that use the free version of the platform). So, I quickly got to work and solved my problem. Here’s how I did it.
The Problem: I Wanted to Import a Spreadsheet Into My WordPress Website
If you’re reading this, I assume that you’re either a WordPress user or someone that knows one. If not, this post is probably not for you. However, if you’re a WordPress user that’s encountered this problem, continue reading.
If you’ve tried to add an Excel spreadsheet to your WordPress website using a traditional method (such as copy/pasting the data into a table in the WordPress admin area or using an Excel Add-in like Numworks that turns numbers into WordPress posts), you’ll know that it doesn’t work perfectly. Some of the data might be imported correctly, but a lot of it likely won’t. You’ll also have to manually fix some of the imported data (such as converting dates or finding and replacing text with wildcards because the add-in didn’t import all of the formulas correctly).
What I did to solve the problem was to use an online tool called SheetImport. After I uploaded the Excel file using the tool, I clicked the “Create New” button to bring up the WordPress import interface. From there, I selected the fields that I wanted to have appear in my WordPress posts and widgets (such as the title and content of my posts) and then created a few sample posts and tested them out to confirm that all of the data was imported correctly.
The Solution: Use SheetImport To Import Data From An Excel Spreadsheet Into Your WordPress Website
If you’re looking to solve this problem or have encountered it yourself, you can use the tool called SheetImport to easily import data from an Excel spreadsheet into your WordPress website. Here’s how you can use it.
To begin, you’ll need to sign up for an account on SheetImport.com (it’s free). Once you’ve created a Sheetimport account, you can return to the site and click on the “Add New” button in the top right corner to bring up the software’s import interface. You’ll then need to select the type of content that you want to import from Excel (you can select multiple sheets if you’ve separated your data into multiple spreadsheets). After you make this selection, click on the “Next” button.
Next, you’ll need to decide which fields you want to have appear in your WordPress posts and widgets (such as the title and content of your posts). To do this, click on the “Fields” button and then the “+” icon to bring up a list of all the fields in your spreadsheet. Once you’ve found the field that you want to use (usually the first one that pops up when you click on the “+” icon), click on the “Add” button to add it to your WordPress Post or Widget options. Repeat this for each field that you want to use in your WordPress posts and widgets. Once you’ve finished adding the fields you want to use, click on the “Next” button.
Note: To Use This Method, You Must Have a Working Knowledge Of HTML And CSS
To use this method, you will need a working knowledge of HTML and CSS. These are the meta languages of coding that allow you to style and format your content however you want. If you’re not that familiar with HTML or CSS, don’t worry. There are plenty of WordPress tutorials out there that can help you learn the basics.
Importing Data Into WordPress Post And Widget Options Using The Standard Method
If you’re looking to import data into your WordPress Post and Widget options (such as the title and content of your posts) using the traditional method (such as copy/pasting the data into a table in the WordPress admin area or using an Excel Add-in like Numworks that turns numbers into WordPress posts), you can’t really beat having all the data available in one place. This method is great if you have a lot of data that you want to keep track of (such as sales figures that you pull from an Excel spreadsheet). However, if you’re looking to keep track of a smaller amount of content, this method may not be for you. Instead, you can use the SheetImport tool to easily import data into your WordPress posts and widgets.
To do this, you will first need to create a new post (make sure that you keep this post private until you’ve tested that all the data was imported correctly). In this post, you’ll want to call out a particular column in your Excel spreadsheet (such as the A column). Next, you’ll want to go to the WordPress admin area and click on the “+” icon next to the “Posts” heading to bring up the WordPress menus. On the left side of the screen, you’ll see the standard “Posts” menu. At the top of this menu, click on “Add New” to bring up the WordPress import interface.
Once you’re in the WordPress import interface, you can click on the “From Excel” button to bring up a list of all the available sources that you can use to import data (Excel, CSV, and Google Sheets are all listed here). When you click on one of these sources, you’ll see a list of all the posts and/or slides that are available in that format. To import a spreadsheet using this method, simply select “Excel” from the list and then click on the “Next” button.
As you can see above, the first thing that you’ll need to do is to enter a title for your post. After you’ve entered a title, you can proceed to enter the content in the remaining fields (the post’s content will appear in the order that you fill out the form). Once you’ve entered your content in the remaining fields, you can click on the “Publish” button to post your content.
How To Create An Outstanding Blog Using WordPress
WordPress powers one of the largest self-published blogs in the world with over 14 million monthly active users. If you’ve ever wondered how they do it, keep reading.
In 2015, WordPress awarded me affiliate status, which entitled me to a $600 a month discount. Since then, I’ve been promoting their awesome platform and teaching others how to use it. Here’s what I’ve learned.
Choose A Niche
When WordPress started out, it was simply a blogging platform. Since then, it’s evolved into a full-blown content creation tool that can host all types of online content (including video content). This content can be consumed across multiple devices (such as phones, tablets, and laptops) and operating systems (such as iOS and Android).
However, all of this comes with a HUGE price tag. If you want to learn more about the cost of maintaining a WordPress website, check out this post.

Use The Right Headings
Using the right headings will make a huge difference in the readability and appeal of your posts. When you create blog posts, you’ll typically start with a piece of content that you’ve curated from somewhere else (a news article, a book review, etc.). This original content will serve as your blog post’s “hook” — the reason that you’re writing this post in the first place.
However, if you haven’t written your post yet (and you don’t have an original head to pull content from), you can use a tool called Title Generator to quickly create a unique, seo-optimized title for your post. This tool will then pop up with a list of suggested headings — choose the one that you like best.
