I am trying to upload a pretty basic spreadsheet with the CSV import plugin. As the tutorial instructed, I applied double quotes to all fields because many include commas. Now all of my metadata is still awkwardly surrounded by double quotes. Am I missing something? Would appreciate any help. (And I'm a novice developer so feel free to spell things out for me like I'm a six-year-old.)
My first guess is that the application you are using to edit the CSV file might automatically be adding the quotation marks without warning you, with the result of the quotation marks being added twice. That sometimes happens with spreadsheet applications like OpenOffice or MS Office.
If you are using some application like that, you can check the actual CSV by opening it up in a plain text editor to see.
