Hello I have a wordpress site that I need to import 334 pages into.
The pages I have are in individual .cs files. I could mass convert these to .txt files if needed.
But is there a way/plugin that would allow me to upload and create the post from the content automatically?
To do this manually is going to take me a while.
I have only set a small price for this question, however if you think that you could do this job for me, please PM me and suggest a price. I don't even mind if someone wants to do this manually as it needs to be done.
EDIT:: I have managed to do this the following way:
1. Convert all .cs files to .txt using Automator on Mac.
2. Create .zip file out of files.
3. Use this plugin to upload .txt files as posts (wordpress.org/extend/plugins/zipposter/)
This worked very well and very quick.
I will be splitting the prize fund between everyone who answered as I tried all your answers, but in the end used my own way.

see following plugins:-
I guess your next problem is to avoid importing each file individually by hand.
I assume you have 334 individual csv files in a directory (fx. /csvdir/)
You will need to combine the 334 csv files into one master csv file , so you can use plugins suggested above.
1) if you are using linux/unix it is very easy:
# cd /csvdir/
# cat *.csv > master.csv
2) if you are using Windows you can go into the command line and type
for %f in (*.csv) do type "%f" >> master.csv
Then you can open the "master.csv" file in Excel and reorder the columns so it matches the requirements of the importing plugin.
