You might check your install steps, step by step, again. I don't use EP but things normally don's just show up automagically, you have to enter the code. You might have missed a step.

 

Maybe someone else will come along that has installed it and knows for sure...

Actually the installation procedure is wrong. It tells you to modify catalog.php, but it only adds a string to a label in the admin panel, not a real link to EP.

 

My fix:

You go to catalog/admin/includes/filenames.php

Around line 26, you add this:

  // Patch for easy populate
 define('FILENAME_EASY_POPULATE', 'easypopulate.php');
 // End patch for easy populate

then in catalog/admin/includes/boxes, you add

'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCTS_ATTRIBUTES, '', 'NONSSL') . '" class="menuBoxContentLink">' . BOX_CATALOG_CATEGORIES_PRODUCTS_ATTRIBUTES . '</a><br>' . 

I put that line right after:

'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_CATEGORIES, '', 'NONSSL') . '" class="menuBoxContentLink">' . BOX_CATALOG_CATEGORIES_PRODUCTS . '</a><br>' .

It should fix it.

I would have thought you need something like

 

'<a href="' . tep_href_link('easypopulate.php', '', 'NONSSL') . '" class="menuBoxContentLink">Easy Populate</a><br>' .

 

You really should replace easypopulate.php and "Easy Populate" if you want your admin pages to be muti-lingual but this will get you going.

Agree, it's just a quick fix, assuming your admin panel will always be in English, or assuming that the admin will always understand what easy populate means :).

Clean version requires one file modification per language. Too lazy.
