Easy Populate & Products Attributes

Recommended Posts

I am having an issue where whenever I upload my CSV file it seems the v_products_image does not load the link.

 

It takes me to /images/ folder.

 

Any suggestions?

Did you upload your image files via FTP the /catalog/images directory?

If so are premissions correct on them?

 

Did you put references to those images in the v_products_image column?

Hello all,

 

I am not so experienced in working with the OSC, but still manage to make it what I intended:)

 

Now I have a problem, I do not know if it is possible through the "Excel populate" and insert the special prices in addition to the ordinary price.

 

I need just to insert following data:

 

Name

Picture

Regular price

Special price

 

Thanks in advance.

This indicates the product model field is blank so it cant find which product to update.

 

Check your input file.

Hello,

 

 

Regarding V. 2.3 how do you add the 2nd larger image to Easy Populate? I am having the small issue. When I click on the thumbnail the image is huge, the 'fancybox' size is fine.

 

I understand that you need to upload the 2nd same image file to fix this problem, but, what if you have 1000 products. There has to be a way to upload all the 2nd larger images at once than uploading one by one.

 

Please help. Thanks. Here is a link to the exact issue I am referring to on my site:

Thank you.

Why not upload all the images directly into catalog/images directory?

 

I'm using Easypopulate 2.77 with OSC 2.3.1 and it works just fine. The only problem seems to be that it does not *delete* any products, only adds and/or updates. I'm fetching my suppliers product catalog (some 8000 items) daily with ftp and several products will have been removed every time. To disable the removed products showing up in the store I created a shell script that sets the value of product_quantity to zero, waits for me to run the EP imports and afterwards changes the product_status to zero for products that have their quantity as 0. Works but is a bit cumbersome.

 

Question: where should I put the database queries if I'd like to EP import processing to do the changes for product_quantity and product_status?

Anyone??? sorry, so computer iliterate here. I really am stumped why my images are huge when you click on the thumbnail. How do I get the main image to resize? The fancy box window is fine by the way.

Hi

 

I have download and installed the latest verison of easy Populate on my 2.3.1 site on XAMPP. Everything works except I cannot download under the complete .csv file under the quick links. I can download everything else (including the attributes fields)

 

Having said that, I can download a complete table under Export EP or Froogle Products File which is weird as surely thats the same thing. I have gone through all the php.ini settings:

 

max_execution_time = 300

max_input_time = 200

post_max_size = 4M

upload_max_filesize = 8M

memory_limit = 500M

session.gc_maxlifetime = 1400

 

and the easypopulate settings (attached). Please could anyone shed some light?

Also while I have your attention, I have a separate issue with the product images being fullsize on the product page. I have read in previous threads that this can be resolved using Easy Populate but on looking at the suggested contribution in the Support documentation http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/1032 I realise its only for 2.2. Is there a version for 2.3.1 or even another way to get my main images to resize?

 

Or can it still be used?

 

Please advise.

Have you uploaded the image to the images directory?

 

What did you actually put in the import file and what was the name of the column you put it in?

Oh man, I figured out the answer. I edited the html_output file using the dynamic image resizer and some code got messed up somehow so I reinstalled the resizer and it works again. Lol!
