EASYPOPULATE - Have i the correct version.?

Recommended Posts

Hi..

 

Basically i wanted the easypopulate so i downloaded "easy populate for ver 2.2"

Firstly have i got the correct version.? My Ecommerce is:

(osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2 RC2a.)

 

Then i unzipped it and read the readme file which says:

(Just copy and replace /admin/easypopulate.php)

Thats It.. Nothing else. So as one to follow instructions thats what i have done.

"only i didnt replace it because it wasnt there in the first place" So im wondering

Now What.?

 

I log into Admin and see Nothing. Now ive read a post where the guy was told

to read and follow the instructions but as i said all i got was that line.?

No setting up info ect. So can anyone give me a quick "what to do to get it working".?

 

I see lots of easypopulate programs out there and i got ver 2.2 thinking thats the

one i had to get because my oscommerce is ver 2.2 and the first one i saw said for

ver 2.3 i think. Have i got the right easypopulate or.?

 

Thanks Any1 for your time. I have searched about but cant find a setup post or to

answer if i actually have the correct ver in the first place.

 

Cheers.

Carl.

 

=======================================================

Oh & i dont suppose any1 knows how to delete the words

"osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2 RC2a." on the main page.?

You need to read the installation notes, as normally you need to link the module with admin interface, not just upload new file.


Please read this line: Do you want to find all the answers to your questions? click here. As for contribution database it's located here!

8 people out of 10 don't bother to read installation manuals. I can recommend: if you can't read the installation manual, don't bother to install any contribution yourself.

Before installing contribution or editing/updating/deleting any files, do the full backup, it will save to you & everyone here on the forum time to fix your issues.

Any issues with oscommerce, I am here to help you.

It looks like you did read the installation instructions just that you did not read the package description.

 

Some people just upload the 1 file they have "fixed".

 

Click on the history tab and look for a download that has "complete package" or some thing similar in the description. Then you might need to download and install the "fixes" that come after.

I looked but i couldnt see anything with this in the title.? Nor can i find installation

instructions for which ever package i have got.? I see other packages but i dont want to

install something that is going to give me problems, hence why i asked "have i got the

right ver". Can you point me to a relavant correct d/l and installation guide link plzz.

 

And thnx ever so much for your help/advice btw guys ;)

 

Cheers.

Carl

need such a version".

It can be confusing when you have several different versions, similar titles and partial uploads by multiple contributors. How should a newbie sort this out? Look for the package , review the various uploads, look for full or partial uploads, decide on who is currently supporting the package, find the support thread in the forum to put all this together.

 

Not the greatest scheme, but this is how it currently is. Don't get frustrated, this is something basic that you should learn to do if you are going to use oscommerce.

 

Another thing is, if you have never installed the package before and and instruction says "replace" what action is logical from that.

Cheers bud, I am geeting frustrated..!!

 

I have copied the php file to where it says but dont know what to do from there.?

Cant find anything anywhere on what to do to install it hence the frustation just

being told to look about, i have :(

 

TBH if im right i think that this easypopulate isnt a natural addon or there would

be clear and easy to find instructions on it, am i right in saying its a module people

have made themselves and its been modded for what ever reason by others hence the many

different ones you can d/l and therefore this is why i cant find clear instructions on it.

 

Either way i cant understand it and after looking and looking as i have done the thing is

I Dont understand it and wanted some pointers.

 

I'll Just leave it for now, as im not getting pointed to the one i should get, i just want to

upload these csv files of stock, THATS ALL.

 

Cheers for your deliverance bud.

 

CARL.

Cant see 1 with "suralot" bud.?

Do you mean by "classichound"..??

 

If so i've tried that 1.

Only comes with that 1 file and just say's: "Just copy and replace /admin/easypopulate.php"

No other instructions, i do copy it over but nothing shows in admin to show it.?

 

If thats all you get with that d/l then surely thats all you need no.? if there are

other files needed then thats what im looking for. otherwise why is it not

showing in admin.?

 

in the meantine i am adding over 1000 products 1 by 1 and im on number 5 lol

 

Dum De Dum..!!! :-"

"classichound" was the last to upload, he might have uploaded a partial pack. Click on the history tab to see from the oldest to the newest uploads.

Just a text file that says "Just copy and replace /admin/easypopulate.php"

and the easypopulate.php file.

 

Dude, thanks for trying, nevermind im going to type each product in

1 by 1.

 

no clear help here so fack it. Spent hours last night adding

just 1 section of products so i'll just do a section each night.

should only take me 6 months. lol

 

Thanks Again.

Just got that one mate. followed it from the "history tab" yes i found

the history tab woohoo, but my heads in typing these in now, and ive done

alot. took me all night lol. I think ive lost interest in easypopulate now,

been trying to sort it for too long now.

 

Had enough,

 

thanks anyhows bud..

 

I think i need an empty shop to start with that easy

populate. its not easy to use or understand. i may even

change shopping cart tbh, its murder sorting it out, and

full of ways to hack it apparently. i'll sleep on it.

Yes , that's the one . You should now install it, export what you have so far to csv, update this csv with new records at the end (maintaining the format), and reimport this updated csv. In excel you should change cells that will contain product codes beginning with zero to text.

Hmmm

 

Well what i will do first is, because one section is furniture and the

place i get stock from doesnt provide a csv.. then i will enter these

products manually (why i have no choice) then i'll do that what your saying,

or at leaste have a go. and fiddle then.

 

Ofcourse i will do a full site and sql backup before i fiddle as always :)

 

Blackwater mate cheers bud, honest. i appreciate your time thank you bud.

 

I might be getting back to you :P

 

Cheers.

Carl
