Updating the Dorland Library

It isn’t recommended that people inexperienced with WordPress, text editors and a general comfort with computers attempt this.

Please contact Glen at Islandside Studio if you have difficulties.

Getting inMagic file ready for WordPress

This process converts the DMP from inMagic to a CSV that works for imports.

  1. Obtain DMP export file from inMagic at the Quaker Archives.
  2. Download & install Livecode to run a conversion program from an inMagic file to a CSV that can be userd in WordPress. You do not need to pay for this.
  3. If you haven’t already, download  DMP to CSV program here. Double click this program which will open it in Livecode.
  4. Select ‘Open’ and select the inMagic DMP file. It should look something like this:
  5. Select ‘Process’. This might take a few minutes depending on how fast your computer is.
  6. Select ‘Save’ and save the CSV to somewhere you can later find.

Deleting Existing (older) Dorland Library in WordPress

  1. Log into the Archives site (you will need admin privileges).
  2. Click on ‘Libraries’ on right.
  3. Select all the records in Libraries by clicking the checkbox to the left of Title. Deselect the first record (in this record the first word is ‘Discipline’ but that will change. Ensure the drop menu above Title says ‘Move to Trash’   and then click apply, this will delete all the records except the first one. You need to keep one record which is used for matching fields later.
  4. You need to have one record left for the new import to map into. So if you can avoid it, don’t delete the record called ‘Testing’. But if you delete it, don’t worry, when you have no record left, create a new record by selecting ‘Libraries:Add New”. The dor-id and dor-cps field require numbers, any number will do, for the rest of the fields add the field nume which is what comes after the dash, so for ‘dor-au’, put ‘au’ in the field.


Importing New Dorland Libary Update

  1. On left select ‘All Import’ and select ‘New Import’.
  2. Select ‘New Import’ and find and select the CSV file you created earlier in Livecode.
  3. Select ‘New Item’ and select ‘Libraries’ from the drop menu.
  4. Select ‘Continue to Step 2’ button.
  5. Click ‘Continue to Step 3’
  6. Mapping the data. Drag the blue-green field on right that says ‘dorti’ into the ‘Title & Content’ field on left.
  7. Scroll down and expand ‘Custom Fields’ area. Select ‘See Detected Fields’. Delete the first two custom fields ‘_wp_old_slug’ and ‘_views_template’ by clicking on trash icon to right.
  8. Delete everything in the ‘Value’ fields all the way down.
  9. Drag the field titles over from the right into the ‘Value’ fields.  Make sure the to letters after the dash in name field match in the value field (i.e. wpcf-id goes with {dorid[1]}, wpcf-cl goes with {dorcl[1]}
  10.  ‘Continue to Step 4’
  11. Paste       {dorid[1]}-{dorcl[1]}-{dorsti[1]}     into ‘Unique Identifier Field’
  12. Select ‘Continue’. Select ‘Confirm & Run Import’. This will probably take 20-30 minutes.
  13. Ensure the import looks ok, you can find it here.
