What to Import: Tour Itinerary
Import the listings you’d like featured on your website by navigating to Tour Operator > Importer in the WordPress backend.
- Start by clicking on Tours and then typing in the names of Tour listings in the search field.
- Click on Bulk Search to search for more than one Tour. Enter each Tour on a separate line when doing a bulk search.
- Select the Tour you’d like to import from the search results, and then click on Add to List.
Important note: Select Sample or Personal itineraries in your search depending on where your itineraries have been loaded in your Wetu account.
Important note: The date column displays the last time the “suppliers” made changes to their content on Wetu.
A list of options of what data to import from Wetu then appears below the search results. Select the data you’d like to import, as well as the Team Member you’d like to assign to this Tour/s.
You can also import featured and banner images at this stage if these are assigned to the tour in Wetu.
When you have chosen what date to import click Sync.
This process is repeated for Accommodation and Destination imports. The options for which data to import will differ for each post type, see options below:

Once the Tour, Accommodation, or Destination listing has been imported and the loading animation has stopped, you can navigate to the post type in the back end, where you can further edit the listing and revise it as necessary.
