I am building a website with a ton of categories and custom taxonomies. My theme adds these to all the posts, most of my posts are just images. Having tons of tags/categories means I don't have to write a detailed description of each image, just click click click to add tags/cats. But this makes it very difficult to play with the website on localhost. If I try a new plugin or theme then decide I don't like it I had to rebuild the whole site on localhost. I know I know just save a backup, but that doesn't always work and I would have to rebuild again, and just importing tags/cats through phpmyadmin led to a lot of problems. Now I just save a text file with the cat$slug/cat-2$slug-2/ .... and use this plugin. PERFECTION! Just one thing I noticed is you have to make sure the Category name is different not just the slug, so you can't have Apples$apple/Red$red-1 Apples$apple/Red$red-2 because red-2 category will just get skipped. You have to do Apples$apple/Red-1$red-1 Apples$apple/Red-2$red-2 Or just Apples$apple/Red$red-1 Apples$apple/Red-2$red-2+ p.s. I love this so much this is my first ever review!

Works for me with latest WP installed. All I had to do was copy my text from a text editor and paste back into a box on the plugin config page. One thing I would mention is a forward slash (/) is used to separate parent / child taxonomies. "If you want to make a hierarchy, put a slash between the category and the sub-category in one line. Example : Level A/Level B/Level C" I did have forward slashes in my data so had to change that content. Not sure if it can be escaped or use quoted text. Thanks for the plugin - saved me some time 🙂
