[Contribution] Adding new fields to Easy Populate

Recommended Posts

Hi John,

 

Appreciate the contribution bit but I've no experience there and i don't want to muck anyone else's installations up by omitting or adding code automatically through a full contribution. I may be too cautious but I feel better about it ;)

 

Hi Rav,

 

I have absolutely no experience with the Attribute Sets contribution so I won't be much help. Perhaps if you also let us know the error you are receiving someone else with more knowledge may be able to help.

 

As a tip, I imagine that the admin for Attribute Sets already places changes back into the DB. Have a look at that code (as I did for Extra Product Fields) and see if you can find an answer there.

 

Cheers, Scott

trying to use the attribute sets contribution will not be very easy, take a look at the database table, to see how the fields are created, which then get ported into the products_attributes table, unless you understand it all, it is pretty confusing.

My god I totally messed up some where and I cant figure it out. I added 3 new fields to easy populate, and it appear when I output to a file using easy populate, it looks good, but when I upload a tab delimeted text file with all the new data (I used to be able to do this before adding 3 new fields), the upload data is put in the wrong cells in the database. So when I go and look at my catalog, the date is showing where quantity, and a bunch of other fields are not where they should be.

 

How do I fix this?

 

Here is the code....

 

<?php

 

// Current EP Version

$curver = '2.75-MS2';

 

/*

// **** Temp directory ****

// if you changed your directory structure from stock and do not have /catalog/temp/, then you'll need to change this accordingly.

//

$tempdir = "/temp/";

$tempdir2 = "/temp/";

 

//**** File Splitting Configuration ****

// we attempt to set the timeout limit longer for this script to avoid having to split the files

// NOTE:  If your server is running in safe mode, this setting cannot override the timeout set in php.ini

// uncomment this if you are not on a safe mode server and you are getting timeouts

// set_time_limit(330);

 

// if you are splitting files, this will set the maximum number of records to put in each file.

// if you set your php.ini to a long time, you can make this number bigger

global $maxrecs;

$maxrecs = 300; // default, seems to work for most people.  Reduce if you hit timeouts

//$maxrecs = 4; // for testing

 

//**** Image Defaulting ****

global $default_images, $default_image_manufacturer, $default_image_product, $default_image_category;

// or let them get set to nothing

$default_image_manufacturer = '';

//**** Status Field Setting ****

// Set the v_status field to "Inactive" if you want the status=0 in the system

// Set the v_status field to "Delete" if you want to remove the item from the system <- THIS IS NOT WORKING YET!

// If zero_qty_inactive is true, then items with zero qty will automatically be inactive in the store.

// **** Quote -> Escape character conversion ****

// If you have extensive html in your descriptions and it's getting mangled on upload, turn this off

// set to 1 = replace quotes with escape characters

// set to 0 = no quote replacement

// Remember, if your descriptions contain this character, you will confuse EP!

John,

 

Okay, I took a look at that post, and saw the file you attached, but was not sure where you added those new fields products_issues and Products_retail_price.

 

Also, it did not appear to be a full file. Can you point me to a link, or a sample file with new fields added. I can then just replace those new fields with mine..

 

I hope..

Add Product Sort v1.4 (14 Sep 2004) to Easy Populate v2.76 (15 Apr 2005)

 

When I installed Product Sort it inserted a products_sort_order field into my database, and Easy Populate doesn't download this field automatically.

 

Will using the following code from ?New Fields with Easy Populate (4 Mar 2005 ? Update)? add products_sort_order and allow download and upload?

 

I have tried it and it downloads without a problem, but when I upload some fields upload properly and some fields are out of order.

 

Is there anything else that I need to modify or update?

 

File to modify: /admin/easypopulate.php

Find the line, approx 991: 

$filelayout  = array_merge($filelayout , array(
'v_tax_class_title'  => $iii++,
'v_status'  => $iii++,

Below it add:
'v_products_sort_order'  => $iii++,
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Find the line, approx 997:
$filelayout_sql = "SELECT

Below it add:
p.products_sort_order as v_products_sort_order,
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Find the line, approx 1295:
$sql = "SELECT


Below it add:
p.products_sort_order as v_products_sort_order,
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Find the line, approx 1678: $query = "INSERT INTO " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " (

Below it add:
products_sort_order,
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Find the line, approx 1678: $query .="'$v_products_model',

Find the line a couple lines down, '$v_products_quantity',

Below that line add: '$v_products_sort_order'
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Find the line, approx 1744: $query .= '", products_weight="'.$v_products_weight .

Find the line a couple lines down, , products_quantity="' . $v_products_quantity .

Below it add:
'", products_sort_order="' . $v_products_sort_order .

 

Thanks in advance for any help or insights.

When I import my txt file, my new field doesn't import even though it shows all the data when I'm importing. When I export the complete list I see the header for my new field but theres no data in it. What am I doing wrong?

 

I had to downgrade my version of easypopulate to make it work with this without an error from 2.7x to 2.64 I think. I made the appropriate changes, and I've double checked it a thousand times. It worked before I downgraded.

Time to edit is waaay to short. I've already found the solution. It appears that I have stupidly missed other steps for editing easypopulate.php. I guess it was late in the day yesterday when I made the change and I was a little brain fried :)

Finally fixed! I finally got this to work by using user Pura Vida's suggestion at: http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?sho...20entry615220

 

Thanks again Pura Vida!

After I went and finished the extra steps in editing easypopulate.php that I missed, this problem came back again that I had with 2.7x. I still havent seen a solution!! :(

1136 - Column count doesn't match value count at row 1

INSERT INTO products ( products_unitms, products_image, products_model, products_price, products_status, products_last_modified, products_date_added, products_date_available, products_tax_class_id, products_weight, products_quantity, manufacturers_id) VALUES ( 'storepics/JP-5122G.jpg', 'JP-5122G', '1.5', '1', CURRENT_TIMESTAMP, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP, '', '', '1', 'Per 6/Pkg' '9')

 

products_unitms is my new field. This error only started after I edited my easypopulate.php (not including the first step).

 

Simplified Info:

INSERT INTO products  (12 Values, 9 without the dates)
------------------------------------------------------
products_unitms,

PLEASE! Can someone help me? On an earlier post someone got it working because they downgraded, and I've just tried that and I get the same problem. I'm under pressure to my store running and online. Thanks so much.

I had that same error. There is a certain way that new fields must be entered into Easy Populate.

 

Try the suggestion here: http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?sho...20entry615220 and it should work.

Wow. There wasn't a comma there. I found the line stuck it in and now it works. Thanks!!!!! :)

 

I wonder if theres an error in the help file that tells you to paste it without the comma, or if I just missed it. Because this has happened twice, I had a newer version before that didnt work as well.

Looks like there is a problem. Look at this guys post from a long time ago about the same issue:

 

VALUES ( '808', 'no.gif', 'PORTER HALL' 'Ten Month Soundtrack' 'LP' '8', '0.70', "2004-04-27 20:15:26", "2004-04-27 20:15:26", '1', '', '1', '78')

 

His new fields have no commas. Maybe I'll fix the contribution and repost it if I have time.

For anybody who has problems like those previous posters:

miss_coded wrote

I had no trouble adding new fields to easy populate (well, not much) thing is the new fields do not appearin thefile when Icreate & download. If I add the fields to the file and upload it updates everything fine. Any clues?

 

UnqlPhriek wrote

I followed the instructions exactly step by step but nothing happened - the new fields aren't included in the easypopulate txt-files.

I just followed all the directions to add the products_retail_price field. After testing it I found out that the information doesn't get downloaded. Then I entered in some sample retail prices and that doesn't get uploaded.... any idea why this would happen and how I can fix this? Thanks.

I am using Easy Populate with EZ New Fields, and everything is working fine except for one problem. When I add a value to the products_retail_price field in Excel and upload the file through EP, it works fine. However, when I download a complete tab delimited text file and open it, the field products_retail_price is blank. Any ideas why the content in this field is blank after downloading it?

 

You have to do the insertation mentioned in installation instructions after

$filelayout_sql = "SELECT

5 times, not only one time around line 1014 and everything will work!

yes, as most dont think about the insert, however it is detailed in the file and the instructions. most do not want to open the easypopulate.php file.

Hi there, finally figured out how to add a new field & properly upload EP & insert data in the correct spot.

 

Now, final piece of the puzzle :D...

 

The new field i'm using is product_cost, what i'd like to do is take product_cost & times it by 1.10 or 1.15 etc (10%, 15%, etc. profit) & output to product_price.

 

I know this doesn't belong in this post, as it concerns the categories.php file, but this post has helped me alot so I figure someone might know how to do this?

 

TIA!

Hai,

My first time in this OSC forum.

I'm currently configurating stuff. I tried to implement a new field in the product table and used this contribution. I double checked all codes for mistakes but could not find any.

 

I need some help.

 

In OSC admin I get the following error message:

 

Categorie?n / Artikelen

1054 - Unknown column 'p.products_age' in 'field list'

 

select p.products_id, pd.products_name, p.products_quantity, p.products_age, p.products_image, p.products_price, p.products_date_added, p.products_last_modified, p.products_date_available, p.products_status from products p, products_description pd, products_to_categories p2c where p.products_id = pd.products_id and pd.language_id = '4' and p.products_id = p2c.products_id and p2c.categories_id = '0' order by pd.products_name

 

[TEP STOP]

 

 

I changed all files as mentioned in contribution and changed the product table via PHPmyAdmin. (age is the new field).

I do not get products_age in the product listing in the OSC admin. What do I do wrong?

 

Who can give me some advise on this matter?

 

cheers

Hi all

Added the code done by sparkin in April to integrate the Product Extra Fields contribution with easy populate and everything was working perfectly (loved it - thank you!!).

 

Now all of a sudden, the file is taking forever to download and often brings down an empty file. Otherwise it seems to just hang - doesn't through any errors either. It was uploading fine as well but now has also fallen over.

 

Has anyone experienced this before - I was so happy that it was all working!! All I did was add the extra code.

 

Thanks!

Hi all

I am in all sorts of problems with the Easy Populate file. Has anyone had trouble downloading a large complete file (approx 4000 products) - I added the Product Extra Fields code and it was working fine. I added data and it would upload but not download. Tried to download again today and eventually it timed out.

 

I took the code out and returned to the original file and it worked fine again but of course didn't get the extra fields.

 

I have now created more categories and divided the products up further which mean I have approx 2000 products listed in at least 2 categories (ie by brand and by colour). Now it will download all files except for the complete one (which is the one which should have the extra fields in it if it was all working!

 

Is there by any chance anyone could set up a piece of code which would create a download that just has the Product Name and the Product Extra Fields?

 

I have been informed by my host that I am creating too much of a drain on the servers trying to solve this so need a solution quick!!! :'(

 

I love Easypopulate and it has made my life so much easier but the last two days have been hell as I have been trying to solve this issue!!

 

Any help or advice would be appreciated

 

Thanks!!

what is the purpose of downloading, you already have the upload file? usually they are done to upload new or changes.

 

i keep all my ep files separated by manufacturer, and when they reach 1500, i break them out even more . .. i never download the sheets, as i keep them all locally.

 

you can edit your easypopulate.php file to download by category, however trying to download 4000 products with that much data, you will need to have control over your ep file, and it will take awhile to get accomplished.

 

again, i find it unnecessary to download after i have uploaded.
