Easy Populate & Products Attributes

Recommended Posts

Gergely,

I just found the problem

 

Your modifications were missing '$$' on the writing to the tables.

 

The code that seems to work is :

 

// upgrade method only. Note: if you upgrades more and more the id number will be hihger. I suggest that picture upgrades use last
// or delete always v_products_images_image_1 column to prevent effect

             if (EP_PRODUCTS_IMAGES == true) { 
             if (isset($filelayout['v_products_images_image_1'])) {
                 tep_db_query("delete from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_IMAGES . " where products_id = '" . (int)$v_products_id . "'");
             for ($i=1;$i<=EP_PRODUCTS_IMAGES_MAX;$i++) {
               $pi_htmlcontent_var = 'v_products_images_htmlcontent_'.$i;
               $pi_image_var = 'v_products_images_image_'.$i;
               if (!empty($$pi_image_var) || !empty($$pi_htmlcontent_var)) {
                 tep_db_query("insert into " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_IMAGES . " (products_id, image, htmlcontent, sort_order) values ('" . (int)$v_products_id . "', '" . tep_db_input($$pi_image_var) . "', '" . tep_db_input($$pi_htmlcontent_var) . "', '" . tep_db_input($$i) . "')");
               }
               }
                }
                }

hi guys,

 

I now really need suggestions on how to import by product_id and not model number so I can have several product_id's with the same model number.

 

I have being messing with the easypopulate code but with no success.

 

Thanks

Further: the contribution I am using for product extra fields is http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,2202

 

Is this the contribution referred to in the documentation for easy populate? Or would it be better to use a different one? We've already got hundreds of titles entered with a large number of additional fields, but if the easy populate contribution doesn't work with this contribution, I think it'd be best to know now - and somehow convert the information in the additional tables so that we can use easy populate.

I suppose I could but I would really like to keep the way osc works the way it is unless I am missing a trick.

 

It cant be that hard as I am pretty sure cre works that way.

Ok so Easy populate is an awesome contribution. I have an inventory of 10000 products (grocery items) and the install and upload goes great long as you follow the instructions...

Not good... Im no programmer and really just know html. Oscommerce is installed on a professionaly created Theme layout which satisfies my needs to a t... But i can not figure out why after i use easy populate to upload my inventory in bulk that it shifts all my content to the side.. Any help, i've searched the first 40 pages so far and havnt seen anyone with this problem.

Are you using HTML in the product descriptions?

 

The demo products descriptions have html in them. As for any products i have they do not contain any html... yet! It dosnt matter if i use easy populate or manually enter each item into the database. The second i do, everything moves to the right. Below is a sample of were my source code is at after i make a change to the original db entries, im thinking the mess up is somewere around my body content... Maybe you can pinpoint it

The demo products are okay? If so then it is a problem with the products you have added

 

If editing the products (demo and yours) through the admin causes the problem then it doesn't sound like a EasyPopulate problem.

 

Everything goes to the right only if your on the product_info.php page? Or the whole site?

Sounds like a problem with your osC installation itself. Easy Populate is an extremely simple install. The only thing I can suggest look at the trouble shooting part of the EP documentation but I don't recall seeing anything there and the trouble shooting section covers 99.9% of problems. Failing that Google your problem, I'm sure someone else has had the same issue

EP is mixing up my categories and I can't fix it like I have before.

 

In the past I uploaded a full file (2,500 products) and I noticed that the products and categories were all mixed up. I fixed this by doing the right thing and splitting the files (which was easier than I thought it would be).

 

But this time splitting the files isn't helping. I have changed the split file upload to 200 instead of 300 and it still mixes up my categories and subcategories. In fact I even tried splitting the file to 80 and it still mixes everything up.

 

What is wrong? Or an I missing something?

Anyone have a suggestion on what could be causing this problem? I have tried a few times to remove a category and upload it again and I keep getting the same mixed up category problem.

 

BTW, the information in the file is correct. I have gone through the files and they are all pointing in the right path.

2 things

 

Have you read through the trouble shooting section in the documentation?

 

And can you be more specific than "mixed up"

2 things

Yes I have and I can't find the answer. Before when this happened I looked into it and realized I was not splitting the files and that was the reasoning for the mixing of categories, but this time it doesn't work. I have even tried to lower the amount of files in the split file option but even if I lower that it still has the same effect.

 

It's kind of hard for me to describe, but by "mixed up" I mean:

 

Say I have 2 categories with 3 sub-categories and 3 products in each

 

They should display as -

category 1 -> subcategory 1 -> product 1

category 1 -> subcategory 1 -> product 2

category 1 -> subcategory 1 -> product 3

 

category 1 -> subcategory 2 -> product 1

category 1 -> subcategory 2 -> product 2

category 1 -> subcategory 2 -> product 3

 

category 1 -> subcategory 3 -> product 1

category 1 -> subcategory 3 -> product 2

category 1 -> subcategory 3 -> product 3

 

category 2 -> subcategory 1 -> product 1

category 2 -> subcategory 1 -> product 2

category 2 -> subcategory 1 -> product 3

 

category 2 -> subcategory 2 -> product 1

category 2 -> subcategory 2 -> product 2

category 2 -> subcategory 2 -> product 3

 

category 2 -> subcategory 3 -> product 1

category 2 -> subcategory 3 -> product 2

category 2 -> subcategory 3 -> product 3

 

But what happens is this:

 

category 2 -> subcategory 3 -> product 1

category 1 -> subcategory 2 -> product 2

category 2 -> subcategory 1 -> product 3

 

category 2 -> subcategory 1 -> product 1

category 1 -> subcategory 3 -> product 2

category 2 -> subcategory 1 -> product 3

 

category 2 -> subcategory 1 -> product 1

category 1 -> subcategory 2 -> product 2

category 1 -> subcategory 1 -> product 3

 

category 1 -> subcategory 3 -> product 1

category 2 -> subcategory 3 -> product 2

category 1 -> subcategory 2 -> product 3

 

category 1 -> subcategory 1 -> product 1

category 2 -> subcategory 3 -> product 2

category 2 -> subcategory 1 -> product 3

 

category 2 -> subcategory 3 -> product 1

category 2 -> subcategory 3 -> product 2

category 2 -> subcategory 3 -> product 3

 

 

Did that help explain what it is doing?

 

It is basically mixing up the url layout of the items.

 

The display in the categories info box is correct (and in order) and if someone clicks on an actual item from the list it takes them to the correct item.

 

But if you hover over the link in the category/product it displays a url for a completely different category/item. And once you arrive at the url of the item it display's the incorrect url but shows the correct item.

 

BTW, the structure in the EP csv file is correct, it just seems to be affecting the urls for some reason

BTW, the structure in the EP csv file is correct, it just seems to be affecting the urls for some reason

 

 

The only time I have seen EP screw with the categories is when the category title field in the database is set for 50characters for example but you have a category heading of 100characters. But that is covered in the trouble shooting

 

About the URL, the only time I have had an issue similar to this is using EP with SEO URLs and it just required a reseting of the cache in SEO URLs

 

Let me know if that helps

Hi, I have installed the Easy Populate contribution ok and all my files load ok but I am having a problem with the description part. I dont think the tab Field Separator is working as it should. Please see my site for a better idea of what I mean www.classgifts.co.uk

 

Basically all my description lines are appearing as a block of text like so:

 

Product Features: 2200W Steam Spray Vertical steam Anti-drip Anti-calc Self Clean Function White Rubberised Finish 300ml Tank Capacity Ceramic Soleplate

 

It should look like this:

 

Product Features:

 

2200W

<li> Steam Spray

<li> Vertical steam

<li> Anti-drip

<li> Anti-calc

<li> Self Clean Function

<li> White Rubberised Finish

<li> 300ml Tank Capacity

<li> Ceramic Soleplate

 

My settings are:

 

Temp Directory:

/home/sites/classgifts.co.uk/public_html/mystore/temp/

Temp Dir is Writable

Magic Quotes is: off

register_globals is: off

Split files on: 300 records

Model Num Size: 25

Price with tax: false

Calc Precision: 2

Replace quotes: false

Field seperator: tab

Excel safe output: false

Preserve tab/cr/lf: false

Category depth: 7

Enable attributes: true

SEF Froogle URLS: false

Other Support:

MVS Support: false

Additional Images: false

More Pics: false

UltraPics Pics: false

HTC: false

SPPC: false

Extra Fields: false

PDF Upload: false

 

Any ideas please on what I am doing wrong?

 

Thank you.

 

Michael

If you havent done already I would read the easypopulate.php configure file and then

 

Try changing the field seperator to comma

 

Failing that Xcel safe output to true may help

Hello all, again,

 

Another question. Have just installed Easy Populate v2 77a - went into the admin panel / catalogue, but EP was not there :'( Any idea's where I have gone wrong?

 

Apart from my previous question regarding placing the table_block.php file, I did note that step 3 of the install did not go as planned. The admin panel crashed with the following code;

 

 

STEP #3 - Add a link in the Admin Panel. Edit file "/catalog/admin/incudes/boxes/catalog.php"

 

Find this code (Around Line 25):

 

'' . BOX_CATALOG_CATEGORIES_PRODUCTS_ATTRIBUTES . '' .

 

Directly AFTER add this:

 

'Easy Populate' .

 

Admin panel reappeared when I changed the code to the following;

 

'title' => BOX_CATALOG_CATEGORIES_PRODUCTS_ATTRIBUTES, 'Easy Populate' .

 

Any idea's where I should start?

:'(
