Okay, so, the almighty Beer_Baron created the feature for us to bulk-import achievements. Is there anyway we can bulk-import videos? I don't want to sound like a 13-year old here, but adding guides to the site is a pain in the ass. Of course, it's more user friendly for us, compared to NGW, but still, having to create page after page is annoying.

So, back to the initial question, will there be any way for us to bulk-import videos?

I have produced an example of what I mean:

Yes I can cerainly set something up like that, but it won't be as clean as what you mocked up in your screenshot. The columns will be:

Title | Game Name | Parent | Body

And body will be the HTML code for the post. 

I also have a tool that RvBFreak created that takes a YouTube playlist and gives you the title of each video & link.

I have a lot on my plate right now with Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat coming out tomorrow, so there won't be a lot of new Site Updates in the immediate future. But I will write a tutorial up (and post RvB's program) for bulk adding guides when I get a chance.

Hey, GTAComplete, can you give me a bit more insight as to what you're trying to do and what you'd like the output to look like? I might be able to make a tool that can help you 'bulk import', although not in the exact same way you imagined.
