Tell us what you are trying to do?

Using Image2 as a reference, my website in Image1 does not have the columns for different subheading apart from the title. I have imported data from the excel file and I want each column of my excel file to be a separate column. For example in Image2, there are columns like title, date, prep time, cook time etc. Even I want to implement this so is there any way that I can achieve this?

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

As I understand, you want to display the custom fields with columns with your post listing page.

If you edit your custom post type from Toolset => Post Types => Edit your post type
- On your Edit post type screen, you will see the section "Post Fields to be shown as columns in Post Type listing in WordPress Admin" where you can select what fields you want to display with your post type listing page.

Please check the following screenshot: hidden link

Can you please check if above solution help you to resolve your issue.

I am not able to find "Post Fields to be shown as columns in Post Type listing in WordPress Admin" option. Am I on the right page?

Yes - you are on right page. I would like to know, have you created the custom fields using Types plugin? If yes, it should display those custom fields there within the section name "Post Fields to be shown as columns in Post Type listing in WordPress Admin" under edit post type page.

No I have not used Types plugin. Can you please guide me through this process? Also, will I need Pro edition of WP All Import?

Thanks!

If you are not using Types plugin and if you do not created the post custom field using Types plugin then there is no way to add custom field to your post type listing screen.

You may need to use third-party plugin or custom script that adds the custom field to your post type listing screen.

I have installed Types Plugin. Now do I need to add these custom fields before importing my file or after it? Also where should I add these custom fields?
