    Easy Populate Bugs

    Well, I have posted and posted and modified the documentation and practically screamed into cyberspace that each product needs a UNIQUE MODEL NUMBER. I can't help it if no oe pays attention :)

    Easy Populate Help on 2.2 CVS

    There is a different easy populate file for MS2. It is in the contribs section.

    Easy Populate Bugs

    Easy Populate is not equipped to handle xhtml. You can enter everything except the product descriptions. Also make sure every line ends with EOREOR
  5. As was pointed out at the beginning of the thread: READ THE MANUAL, not the README. All the instructions to the supported mods are IN THE MANUAL. The manual is supplied in 2-3 formats, you should be able to read one of them. If your image mod doesn't match the included image field names, do a SEARCH and REPLACE. Posting the entire easypopulate.php code file 3 times was not helpful, since no one can get it on a page to read!
  6. *Read* the info on the contrib page and follow the installation directions and there is a working version for MS1 and for MS2, you just have to be a good reader and download the correct one, and install it correctly. Your generic "I tried them all and none of them works" is a very derogatory and misleading post, and it shows that you have not read the documentation. I am not the only person who has worked on and updated the contrib and you are being insulting to the volunteers who HAVE uploaded a working package. After you make sure you have the right version, if you have specific questions, go search the easy populate threads and you WILL find out how to use it. It is EASY to install, but requires you to do SOME work and you won't know what unless you actually open the readme and read it.

    Add a field to Easy Populate?

    First, You shouldn't promise a customer a feature you cannot supply. Where is the sort order field? If it is in the product table then you need to go and search easypopulate.php for an existing field and copy the existing code, changing the field name to match what your new field name is. You need to make changes in 3 places. Most people do not try and modify easy populate, so bumping your question asking for an answer will usually get you no where and could get you in trouble. If you can't do this yourself, you may need to post in the commercial help needed forum to get someone to customize the code for you. Easy Populate does what it does, it is not easy to customize, it cannot do more without custom coding.
  8. You need to make changes in 3 places when you try and add fields. You need to search the code for an existing field and replicate the code with the new field name.

    [Contribution] Family Products-MS2

    Why would you start a new topic with this? No one that finds it will know what you are talking about and no one that was watching the previous thread will know you posted a new question.... Just a tip from a forum user, if you are in a topic thread and need more info, stay in the thread, DON'T start a new one.....
  11. You are not using the correct version of easy populate for the version of osc that you are running. Go back to contribs and read the available files on the easy poluate download page and get the right ones :)
  12. No, there are no special settings that are needed. Sounds like you need a visit to php tutorial land :) mySql and phpMyAdmin do allow you to import information directly via excel csv files, you have to go look at the database structure and read up on how. Check the wiki.oscommerce.com and see if there is a tutorial there.
  13. I don't think so, unless the contribution specifically states it will work with MS2 it will NOT.
  14. There is a weight assignment. Are you adding this to MS1 or MS2?
