    Hi guys, love the theme so far!
    So I’m getting a “Could not save” error when attempting to upload CSVs.
    csv is in utf8 format as specified.
    I’ve tried saving csvs from txt as well as open office and neither of them worked.

    any thoughts on what could be causing this issue? anything I can test?

    the by-hand uploads seem to work fine:

    Hello culinaryschools,

    Thanks for upgrading! Once we sort this out I’m sure you’ll love it even more!

    Could I get a copy of your CSV in a private reply? Do you have trouble uploading other types of files (images, etc)?

    Thanks!

    Would you mind uploading to http://pastie.org/? You should be able to just copy and paste.

    I think that is the best way to keep the data integrity.

    Cheers!

    Hello culinaryschools,

    I’m 99% sure the issue is that your info is tab delimited (from what I can tell). Can you try it with commas and try again?

    Hey culinaryschools, unfortunately (or fortunately) I can still get it to upload just fine!

    I did a quick find/replace on the pastie link you had.

    :%s/\t/,/g

    Here is the file I used http://pastie.org/9203724. Here is the uploaded version [pastie-9192835.txt zip]. Can you try with my file and see if that works?

    Does this make sense? Let me know if this doesn’t work for you.

    Cheers!
