  1. Great contrib, so easy to install too. One question when I add a example file to the admin section of the store it doesn't pick it up but it does in the root, eg it'll pick up store/zzz.php but not store/admin/zzz.php is that a problem my end or is the contrib not supposed to pick up new store/admin/ files


    Thank you.

  2. Hi Jason,


    I got the same thing with you, only the temporary filename is different, I got


    File uploaded.

    Temporary filename: C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\php113.tmp

    User filename: EP2006Jun23-1301.txt

    Size: 1526903


    I just wonder the problem that the database is not updated is caused by the temporary filename or the folder? maybe it should be uploaded into /catalog/temp instead, the problem is how to change the uploading

    folder to /catalog/temp ? Is there anybody out there know how to correct this?





    Try setting in easypopulate.php

    $tempdir = "temp/";


    In admin configure.php

    define('DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT', '/var/www/html/store/'); // where the pages are located on the server


    Where store change to whatever you have it set at catalog etc....


    May not work but did for me so worth a shot.

  3. Tony, usually that error is because you have single quotes in your product descriptions (') try escaping them like this \' and upload again. It should work fine.


    Top man! thanks very much, very pleased to have this working at last. But as always there is something else :) nothing major just an option. On the images is there a way to have it called from a different server rather than inputing image1.gif into the column you could put http://img.sever1.com/images/(imagename).gif I tried messing with the options in easypopulate.php around //**** Image Defaulting **** but nothing I changed would allow me to do this.



  4. Hi,


    I've solved the above error at last.



    But now I'm getting the error:


    1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax




    It does install a few products though, 6 to be exact.


    Any help would be very much appreciated, hoping to get this cracked for tonight (in uk)


    thanks for any light anyone can shed.

  5. Anyone know whats wrong, here is the error message:


    Filename: EP2006Jun22-2008(4).txt

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/html/store/admin/easypopulate.php on line 690




    I have tried changing DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT to $DOCUMENT_ROOT but then I get error message:

    any ideas?



  6. Still having problems with this contrib.


    When I DL the contrib there is no SQL file in the package, and I am unable to find it in the readme or anything.


    DL Version: EP_v2_76c_MS2


    I have a thought that this might be my problem as when uploading a file I just get:


    File uploaded.

    Temporary filename: /tmp/phpCeA2CV

    User filename: EP2006Jun05-1212.txt

    Size: 385



    I can dl the files ok, but when editing them and just changing something as small as the title then uploading the changes are not implemented.


    Any help with this appreciated.

  7. If your easypopulate.php file is set with the default delimeter as tab, then your upload file needs to be saved as a ".txt (tab delimited)" file. That's the only thing I see at this point.


    Thanks for the reply, yeah I tried that. Even tried using a different comp with excel installed but still no joy. Am a little stumped.

  8. I'm not familiar with open office, but you might want to read page 197 of this thread. Nat8100 had a very similar easy populate problem, and got it worked out...ended up switching to ep 2.76, though...I think.


    The posts are here



    Thanks for that, spent the last few hours reading posts. I can now edit the files in OpenOffice fine with cols*


    But for some unknown reason when i download the complete list make a change to the title and then save and upload it doesn't make the changes.


    Just get the same

    File uploaded.

    Temporary filename: /tmp/phpvt85DY

    User filename: EP2006May15-1503(2).csv

    Size: 923


    File goes like:



    "ade34"|"654656.jpg"|"product name here blah blah"|"description here blah blah blah"||10.99|170||15/05/2006 13:32:30|5||"Cat1"|"Cat2"||"--none--"|"Inactive"|"EOREOR"


    Does anything seem wrong with that? pulling me hair out :)



  9. Will give it a blast and yet you know if it worked, thanks.


    Still no joy.


    Could the problem be that I'm using openoffice rather than excel as when I open the downloaded txt file from the site with the products that are already added it just shows it as like a text file (not in cols*) so I can't edit that I have had to make my own with cols* that are easy to edit. (if that makes any sense)


    Thanks for any help.

  10. Hi, I don't know if the headers must be in a particular order. But for me the header order would be :

    v_products_model v_products_image v_products_name_1 v_products_description_1 v_products_url_1 v_products_price v_products_weight v_products_quantity v_categories_name_1 EOREOR


    Hope this helps.

  11. Hi,


    After using Import catalog's file:


    I get at the bottom


    File uploaded.

    Temporary filename: /tmp/phpf4tI0P

    User filename: testupload.xls

    Size: 20480



    But no products are added to the catalog.


    The headers I am using in a .xls file are as follows:


    v_products_model v_products_name_1 v_products_price v_products_description_1 v_products_weight v_products_image v_products_description_2 v_products_quantity v_categories_name EOREOR



    Any ideas on what the problem could be?


    Thanks for anyone who can offer any help.



    edit: using version Easy Populater 2.90.

  12. Hi,


    On the older versions of sts you had product_info.php.html and you could add and take away attributes like $productdesc, $imagesmall etc and move them around to place them where they looked best. But on this version you just get the attribute $content.


    I don't want things like 'This product was added to our catalog on...' etc.. which files need editing to remove things like this?



  13. Hi,


    A little problem (well hopefully) I have STS and the SEO contribs installed I installed this contrib and I can get the title of my site showing but nothing else.


    When I add to STS_display_output.php this


    // BOF: WebMakers.com Changed: Header Tag Controller v1.0
    if ( file_exists(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'header_tags.php') ) {
     require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'header_tags.php');
    } else {
     <title><?php echo TITLE ?></title>
    // EOF: WebMakers.com Changed: Header Tag Controller v1.0
    # cDynamic Meta Tags
    require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'meta_tags.php');


    I get this error message


    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare meta_create_title() (previously declared in /var/www/html/catalog/includes/functions/meta.php:30) in /var/www/html/catalog/includes/functions/meta.php on line 30


    But when I change back to this in STS_display_output.php


    // STS: ADD: Support for WebMakers.com's Header Tag Controller contribution
     // Capture the output
     // BOF: WebMakers.com Changed: Header Tag Controller v1.0
     // Replaced by header_tags.php
     if ( file_exists(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'header_tags.php') ) {
    require(DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS . 'clean_html_comments.php');
    require(DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS . 'header_tags.php');
    require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'header_tags.php');
     } else {
    echo "<title>" . TITLE . "</title>";
     // EOF: WebMakers.com Changed: Header Tag Controller v1.0
     $sts_block_name = 'headertags';
    // STS: EOADD: Support for WebMakers.com's Header Tag Controller contribution


    It is fine working with the title but without the other tags.


    Any ideas.

  14. In includes/modules/dynamic_sitemap.php, find the section of code ending with this line
     strpos($file, 'whats_new')			 !== FALSE  )

    Duplicate one of the lines above it and change the name to the box you want to exclude.




    Thank you worked perfecty. thanks for taking time to reply.

  15. Hi


    I'm getting that dreaded Unable to determine the page link! error I think I have found the problem but don't know how to fix it. It stops listing and gives the error when it gets to Shop by price box how do I go about removing the shop by price form this contrib or making it work with it.


    Any ideas? would be appreciated.



  16. Houston we have a problem


    Using easy populate and this contrib, when you type in a product into your browser say product_info.php?cPath=43_51&products_id=67 for example it will just redirect to product_info.php is that normal. So the products that have been index by the search engines already won't show up, is there anyway to have the product_info.php?cPath=43_51&products_id=67 redirected to the .html version rather than just a plain product_info.php


    Settings in the admin are


    Enable SEO URLs? true

    Add cPath to product URLs? false

    Add category parent to begining of URLs? true

    Filter Short Words 3

    Enable SEO cache to save queries? true

    Enable product cache? true

    Enable categories cache? true

    Enable manufacturers cache? true

    Enable articles cache? true

    Enable topics cache? true

    Enable information cache? true

    Enable automatic redirects? true

    Choose URL Rewrite Type Rewrite

    Enter special character conversions

    Remove all non-alphanumeric characters? false

    Reset SEO URLs Cache false

  17. I have installed this contrib, but get a 404 error, I think it is something to do with me having my store located in the root directory of my server but the admin is located in the catalog/admin/ my store works fine like this but on this contrib I am getting the 404 errors on the product pages, does anyone know what settings I need to change to get it to work?


    Many thanks for any help you can give.

  18. Was just checking the server error logs, and saw loads of these.


    [Tue Jan 24 12:57:54 2006] [error] [client] PHP Notice: Undefined index: no_sts in /var/www/html/includes/application_top.php on line 18, referer:



    Line 18 on the aptop is

    if ($HTTP_GET_VARS["no_sts"] > 0) {


    Doesn't seem to effect the site.


    Anyone any idea how to stop it, and why it's coming up.
