I'm trying to import few nodes using feeds CSV file. I'm able to import some of the fields but I'm unable to import CCK date fields.

I have tried feeds module with uc_feeds_product_importer.

How can I import date fields?

    what format is your CSV date field? AFAIK Drupal only supports unix timestamps – longboardnode Apr 23 '13 at 4:39
  • I tried with following formats on csv. 2012-04-17 00:00:00, 13 April 2013and etc, but nothing works after importing – AnAnD Apr 23 '13 at 9:43
  • check out this thread perhaps it will help drupal.org/node/722740 otherwise only other thing I can think of is try to convert your dates to Unix timestamps (something like 1353353096) which is how Drupal stores dates for nodes and user changes etc. – longboardnode Apr 24 '13 at 5:36

This was an issue with the feeds importer. I deleted the existing importer and created a new importer with new mappings, then all the date fields started working as normal.

The date format I use in the csv file is: 23-Apr-12

  • don't forget to clear the site cache once. – AnAnD Apr 24 '13 at 5:56
  • For me the date format "2013-08-14 10:59:58" has always worked! – Imran Khan Aug 14 '13 at 19:04
