Release RO CSVI 7.13.0

Release RO CSVI 7.13.0

Since August 1st we have moved to our new location and CSV Improved has been renamed to RO CSVI. After updating you will find the extension as RO CSVI in your Extension list. That is the only thing that has changed, our development has not stopped and we worked hard on this new release. Today we release RO CSVI 7.13.0 with some great new features.

XLSX support

For quite some time we had a pending request to also support XLSX files. This means you no longer need to convert the files to XLS to be able to import the file. Using XLSX files works exactly the same way as any other file.

RO CSVI File Extensions


Joomla Menus Import

The Joomla Menus import has been extended with the menu_delete field which allows you to delete menu entries on import.

Joomla Content

Articles can now also be imported based on ID, this should make it easier to keep existing IDs.


By now it is tradition, every release has changes in the VirtueMart support. This release is no different, as we added the option to delete related products in the VirtueMart Product Import. The Delete Related Products option allows you to delete existing related products from products.

On the VirtueMart Userinfo import it was possible to import users without a username, this has been fixed as now it is no longer possible to import accounts without a username.

The VirtueMart product import did not take the weight and volume default values from the VirtueMart configuration but was hardcoded to the metric system. This has now been changed to use the values set in the VirtueMart configuration.

Breakdesigns plugins

For a long time we have been supporting the Custom Fields For All and Stockable Custom Fields by Breakdesigns, this has now been extended with the Dependent Custom Fields For All. Having three plugins that depend on each other is troublesome, so we decided to move all code into the Custom Fields For All plugin. This means that when you install the Custom Fields For All plugin, the Stockable Custom Fields plugin from RO CSVI will be removed as it is now obsolete.


HikaShop Export plugin

We ship a plugin that can be used to export an order after the order has been created. This plugin has now been extended to allow for using the order ID as the filename. For more information see the Export order after an order is created tutorial for more information.
