EasyPopulate 2.4, now with Froogle support!

Recommended Posts

I am trying to use the multiple images part of Easy Populate with Loaded5. I uncommented the lines in easypopulate.php and get an error. I am using 2.53, and tried some of the earlier versions and got the same error. Someone please help.

 

Here is the error code:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected '.' in /home/cutljmhx/public_html/admin/easypopulate.php on line 1533

 

Here is the section of code in question:

Thank you.

I am having an upload problem!

 

I downloaded the file, added a few products and then tried to upload.

 

Then I followed the docs troubleshooting tips and tried to simply download a file, make no changes and then upload but each time I try to upload a file all I get is a screen that says:

 

Easy Populate 2.53 - Default Language : English(1)

 

and nothing else!

 

When I tried it with the file where I had added a couple of products, they hadn't been added to my store.

 

Any ideas what is happening here???

 

thanks

 

Jen


I haven't lost my mind - I have it backed up on disk somewhere.

fast freddy,

I am having the same troubles with the mimage and bimage fields. By removing the first dot I get then this:

Parse error :  parse error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /Library/WebServer/Documents/shop/admin/easypopulate.php on line 1541

 

What exactly does it take to activate these fields. I was able to do it in an older version by just duplicating every instance of v_products_image and creating mimage and bimage but I would like to stick closer to the updated version. I am currently using (trying) 2.53.

 

Thanks

Terral

I was able to fix the parse error by adding the ; after the query. This however did not enable the mimage and bimage in the output.

 

Thanks for any help.

I'm not at home right now, and will do this when I get there, but in the meantime maybe someone can compare these lines to what is in 2.4 beta 7. The sames lines would be there just without the extra image lines for the mopics mod. mimage and bimage will be in there.

Loxly,

I compared the two but am not sure what to do now. I also tried duplicating the products_image lines throughout the file and changing them to mimage and bimage. It worked on my old file 2.41b5 but crashed hard in the new one.

 

2.53

Did you uncomment these lines?

Yes, I did uncomment all the lines relating to the images. Then I get the unexpected '.' parse error as mentioned above. If I remove the first dot then I get an unexpected T_VARIABLE.

  //unmcomment these lines if you are running the image mods

   

                       $query .= $v_products_mimage . '", "'

    	 . $v_products_bimage . '", "'

Are you using the three iamges and MoPics contributions? If you are not, it is looking for the tables and not finding them.

That is a big problem. The directory HAS to be 777.

They should be commented out in the Easy Populate.php file in the original download. If they are not, then search for mimage and put # in front of that line and the image names after it.

 

There are 3 places that this needs to be done.
