Easy Populate & Products Attributes

Recommended Posts

most likely php5, search for the php fix for it

 

Yeah :)

But when I tries to add a product via EP, only the first row is being added.

You have any clue?

 

Cheers

hi,

question about the way easypopulate imports a spreadsheet.

 

does it matter in what order the headers are set ?

 

like v_model first,v_products_id second,v_product_name third , and so on and so on.....

from what i have read in previous posts i know model# has to be first...but as for others i dont know if it matters to much....

can someone enlighten me please.

Hi quys, I need your help.

I was searching on this forum for two hours, and without result.

PROBLEM:

I have EP2.78.

When uploading in column v_products_description_4 I use html code:

text here text here <p><img src="images/google-2-W-big.jpg"><br>

and after uploading on server are double quotes changed to this:

&%22images/google-2-W-big.jpg&%22

and image is not viewed.

 

So I am not able to add there other images and I need it.

 

Could you somebody help me?

Thank you very much.

A recent text file will not import. The error is as follows:

 

| AE-91241 | small_imag | medium_ima | big_images | Aerotech R | Aerotech R | | 47.96 | 11.99 | 20 | 59.95 | 0.11 | 0000-00-00 | 0000-00-00 | 0 | 3 | 6 | 40 | Aerotech H | Model Rock | Aerotech R | Aerotech H | Taxable Go | Active Updated

1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '', '43')' at line 37

 

INSERT INTO products ( products_image, products_mediumimage, products_largeimage, products_model, products_price, products_discount, products_percent, products_retail, products_status, products_last_modified, products_date_added, products_date_available, products_tax_class_id, products_weight, products_quantity, products_reorder, products_reorder_to, manufacturers_discount, manufacturers_id) VALUES ( 'small_images/small_rouse-tech.jpg','medium_images/medium_rouse-tech.jpg', 'big_images/big_rouse-tech.jpg','RT-29100C', '18.86', '4.79', '10', '20.95', '1', CURRENT_TIMESTAMP, "0000-00-00 00:00:00", "0000-00-00 00:00:00", '1', '1', '1', '1', '42', 1', '43')

 

[TEP STOP]

 

 

When I change the model number to be the same as the the first line on all the products, all of them will import as the single model number successfully. This proves there is nothing wrong with the file in general.

 

I then changed the second model number to RT-29100C or any other model number and the error repeats.

 

To me it looks as if there is some limit on the number of products that can be imported into the SQL. The text file only has 37 more products in it, but the current store has about 1000 products in it.

 

I tried the PHP 5 fix with no success. Help!

try with backslashes

 

\"images/google-2-W-big.jpg\"

 

 

As I said - I was searching this forum - I saw this solution but it doesn't work.

I am not experienced coder - i know only html from school but with backslashes it really does'nt work.

Maybe something interesting for you - programmers.

Maybe has influence that i am running it under Czech (windows 1250) and some ISO characters coding.

Quote from 1readmeFIRST.txt from package

 

"

9. Run update.sql against your mysql database. Once the database is updated, you can set the configuration variables in the admin side under Configuration->Easy Populate. It is here where you adjust EP's operation for your store. I meant what I said, Please, Pretty please, do read the entire configuration stuff. Really. You'll be glad you did. You'll find all kinds of neat configurable stuff there. The instructions for using the various image mods and other supported contribtion variables are in there."

 

How do i go about doing this please? Complete newbie here so please be gentle with me ;-)

One more question

 

If i use this contribution to add products to oscommerce and then after some time i update the same products .. such as add an image or something or modify the record, will easy populate update the records for that product or will it just add the whole product again?

hi,

i installed 2.78 now and i can download from admin panel

if i try to download (Model/Price/Quantity) or (Model/Attributes) i get the following report:

1146 - Table 'db60053_9.TABLE_PRODUCTS_GROUPS' doesn't exist

I had the same. I solved it this way.

 

Change 'If .....accordingly. ', 17, 1 etc into "If ...... accordingly ", 17 etc.

So make the quotes dubble quotes and erase the dot.

hi,

 

I just downloaded EasyPopulate 2.79 and tried to upload the SQL-Statements:

 

Following Error appears!

 

INSERT INTO configuration

VALUES (

 

'', 'Temp Directory', 'EP_TEMP_DIR', 'temp/', 'If you changed your directory structure from stock and do not have /catalog/temp/, then you'll need

TO CHANGE this accordingly. ', 17, 1, now(), now(), NULL, NULL); INSERT INTO configuration VALUES ('', '

SET TimeLimt ', 'EP_SET_TIME_LIMIT ', 'false ', ' SET TO "true" IF you are NOT ON a safe MODE server AND you are getting timeouts. ', 17, 2, now(), now(), NULL, 'tep_cfg_select_option(

array(

\ 'true\', \'false\'),'

)

I installed EP 2-79. I have a problem I can not solve with attached manuals.

I look around in this forum but could not find the solution.

 

After an attempt to import an file I got the following message

 

..........................: | Download: | Download: | Download: | 13 | | Box: Windo | Box: Windo | Box: Windo | Box: Windo | | Hardware | Mice | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Taxable Go | EP_STATUS_ Updated

1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax near '0,0, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP ,CURRENT_TIMESTAMP)' at line 1

 

INSERT INTO categories (categories_id, categories_image, parent_id, sort_order, date_added, last_modified ) VALUES (21,,0,0, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP ,CURRENT_TIMESTAMP)

 

[TEP STOP]

 

What did I do:

- exported the default database from OScommerce to a txt file (via the EP admin tool)

- I opened it in Excell and saved it again;

- imported the file via EP in OScommerce. NO PROBLEM

 

2nd test with a new product in an existing catagory gave no problems too.

 

BUT if I give that new product a new category name 1 and category name 2 I get the message as stated above.

I think no new categories can be generated by EP. And for what I read the application EP should do that automatically.

 

Who can help me with.

 

thanks in advance

Gauthier
