I have an interesting use-case.

I have to import a lot of documents (+100) into a specific content type called "Resource". This content type consists of few taxonomy fields (mapped to a vocabulary), some textfields and PDF file.

What should be the strategy when using Feeds module. Is it possible to have multiple taxonomy terms per field ?

For taxonomy terms : It is possible, simply delimit your values with commas in your taxonomy field CSV column, and in the Feeds mapping, select "Search taxonomy terms by: Term name" and "Auto create"

Make sure your Drupal field allowed number of values is set to Unlimited (or > 1)

For files:

  • your file is external and given a URL, feeds will download it and store it
  • your file is already stored locally then the URI must be either

    • a stream wrapper (e.g.: public://import/myfile.pdf)
    • a relative path from your docroot
    • an absolute path on your system

  • Thanks, and what about the files ? – Oleg Videnov Aug 14 '13 at 9:55
  • Either your file is external and given a URL, feeds will download it and store it; or if it is already stored locally then the URI must be a stream wrapper (e.g.: public://import/myfile.pdf), a relative path from your docroot, or an absolute path on your system – SebCorbin Aug 14 '13 at 11:42
  • I am going to give it a try and report in a bit – Oleg Videnov Aug 14 '13 at 11:50
  • Confirmative: External URL works ! – Oleg Videnov Aug 14 '13 at 12:02
  • If you consider this answer as good, accept it ;) (I'll update my original answer to add info about file import) – SebCorbin Aug 14 '13 at 12:20
