[Contribution] Adding new fields to Easy Populate

Recommended Posts

Hi Mibble,

I finally figured that out last night. I worked out how the Products Extra Fields added fields (ie what the headers were called) and set up the file using the fields I needed to add and it all uploaded beautifully. The problem was just figuring out what the field names were for the extra ones!

 

I was using the download file to delete and move items into categories but then found the wonderful multi product delete/move contribution and that is all so much easier now - just select and delete or move!

 

I was so set on concentrating on the download file - realised it was the upload file that was more important!

 

Thank you for your advice! Crisis is over hopefully! :thumbsup:

I've been trying this all day, with no luck.

 

I have installed the 5/19/05 version of New Fields. When I try to upload the .txt with the two new fields, I get the following error:

 

1054 - Unknown column 'products_spec' in 'field list'

 

I d/l'ed a complete file for editing to be sure I was properly calling the new fields, and I am (moved them to the same location in the spreadsheet as well). I have installed everything in the contribution, aside from the search function additions, have added in the databases inside my products database.

 

If anyone can help me with this problem, or help me to get Products Extra Fields to work with Easy Populate (installed that earlier as well, and tried configuring it per the instructions provided on the forum, but I needed to delete the script from easypopulate.php due to various erros I was receiving). Thanks!

Everything is working now... well, almost.

 

I have added two new fields, and they upload fine according to the upload display. However, when I manually access the file through the admin cp, the fields are blank for my new fields. I can manually enter data into these fields and have it save, but not through EP.

 

I imagine it's just not writing these two fields to the database, but I am unsure of how to solve this. Both databases have been created...

i added the fields as per the instructions in the contrib. the only thing i did not add was the search function features, and the ones to display with the list of the products, as i did not want those.

 

i have also added the fields into the .txt file in the location in which they appear when i did a test download file.

i re-tested manually entering the data into the product addition in the admin panel, and upon submitting the altered product information, then going back in to edit it, the new fields show blank again. could it just be in how i have my databases set up? i set them up as per the instructions in the contrib, but perhaps i did something wrong, since it doesn't appear to be writing to them.

Hello everyone.

 

First of thank you in advance for whoever can help me.

 

I believe I followed all of the instructions correctly, then I downloaded the EP datasheet and then I filled in the new field with information (new field=retail_price), and then when I upload the file, it uploads a few then I get this error:

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'll get dizzy trying to follow the twists and turns in this swir

 

UPDATE products_description SET products_name='32403 Scrollwork Candleholder', products_description='You'll get dizzy trying to follow the twists and turns in this swirly, wrought iron candle holder! Better to just enjoy the lovely display it makes on your wall. Holds five 3" diameter candles. Candles not included. 28" x 5 1/2" x 11 1/2" high.', products_url='' WHERE products_id = '3023' AND language_id = '1'

 

[TEP STOP]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, I tried to see if the ones that did upload had the information in the fields and nope the fields are blank. Then I manually filled one in and it didn't download either. I have been trying to install this for about 2 days now. I need some help, because I am so frustrated >_< :( . So I am going to include the easypopulate.php code below

 

Thanks guys,

Hi everybody. I have some problems when I add some new fields... I followed the rules of your txt file, but when I try to upload the excel modified file, all fields ARE MIXED UP!! How can it be possible???? Thank you for your answers!

 

SORRY, I make a mistake. I have replay to a wrong Post, instead of this!

for those of you trying to add additional fields, open some of the other files included with easypopulate and do a comparison with what you have, you can then see the proper spots to add the fields

Many thanks, Mibble, for your reply and especially for your EP full package 2.74. The EP last version (v2.76) not allow to add new fields: in the upload they are mixed up or deleted.

Perhaps, this problem would be pointed to the comunity.

 

Best regards,

I do not know anything about NOT being able to add fields in 2.76, no one else has said anything about this. There were only minor mods made. Perhaps if you downloaded someone else's version (one with the semicolon delimited) or from another 'package' it may be the case.

i dont use products extra fields. since i do custom work it is easier to add the required fields manually to the database and then program them into the specific pages required, as well as adding them into easypopulate.

if you dont want the fields displayed, simple, use an if statement to check to see if there is data in the field.

 

trying to get this contribution to work with a floating field is pretty tough to do.

and since you are usually only adding from 3 to 10 fields, piece of cake to add those to a site and ep together.

 

 

I think you are right Mibble. I have been searching a lot to get this working. Maybe doing this manually will be best. BUT.........I don't know the code to do it. I can manually insert tables (the extra fields) in the DB. I know how to edit the easypopulate.php file to include the extra fields, but I don't know the code to add it to the info page. And also to have it do the check so that no data fields do not display. Can you give me a hand at this?

 

 

Thanks,

Mike

I added this contribution to my page a while back and it has been working really well.

 

I do have two questions. My store is mostly a book store with a few gifts. I'd like to add the Author field - a field I created - to the index.php listing - the list of products that comes up when you click on a category name. Currently, it shows the image, title and price and I'm not sure where to add in a line for showing the author.

 

Also, I'd like to only show the author, both on the index and on the product listing page, for those products that are in the Books category, but not those in the Gift category. This question may not belong in this thread, but has anyone else had success with that?

 

Thanks in advance.

I added an author field to the database using this contribution. Even though the keyword search will pick up author, my client wants a separate author search field on the advanced search page. I've added the author field to the advanced_search.php page, but I cannot get it to show any results.

 

Here's the code from lines 61 and 281 in advanced_search_results.php. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I keep getting No Products Match.

 

	if (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['author'])) {
  $author = $HTTP_GET_VARS['author'];
}

 

if (isset($author) && (sizeof($author) > 0)) {
$where_str .= " and p.products_author like '%" . tep_db_input($author) . "'";
 }

An update on the search question from above.

 

I added an extra line to the code at line 289 in advanced_search_results.php and now every product in the store gets returned as a result:

 

   if (isset($search_author) && (sizeof($search_author) > 0)) {
 $author = tep_db_prepare_input($search_author[$i]);
$where_str .= " and p.products_author like '%" . tep_db_input($author) . "%'";
 }

 

I also added the following code around line 128

	if (tep_not_null($author)) {
  if (!tep_parse_search_string($author, $search_author)) {
	$error = true;

	$messageStack->add_session('search', ERROR_INVALID_KEYWORDS);
  }
}

Ok here is the problem I'm having. Keep in mind I've tested everything with a fresh install of easy populate and everything works, the problems start when I install the new fields contrib. I'm using the newest version of both contribs.

 

When I go to add a new category and products everything uploads fine, but the listed products are all messed up. First problem is that even though for the image I have filename.jpg all that shows up is the image filename without the .jpg extension. All of the prices are at $1 no matter what and all of the retail prices are 10.00. The product model shows what the price is supposed to be. the product quantity is either 15 or 25 no matter what i put in, and the shipping weight is a bunch of 9s. all of the products listed are inactive. the dates listed for added and available are all zeros, and when i try to update the products by uploading the file again it just creates 2 instances. I'm completely baffled how all of this could happen. I've double checked everything in the mod and I'm following all of the directions correctly! something is seriously messed up, but maybe its something small causing all of this. If someone could help me out that would be great!

Also I might add everything downloads correctly, including the retail price. It's only when I upload that I'm getting the problem

I've seen a number of people requesting help to integrate the Product Extra Fields contribution with Easy Populate.

 

I have not tested the following code extensively but it does seem to work.

 

PLEASE NOTE: You can only add new fields from within admin. You must then download an Easy Populate file to update the extra fields for each product. If you delete an extra field in admin after downloading an Easy Populate file and then import an Easy Populate file with the deleted field it will be ignored.

 

I am no super programmer and I'm sure my code can be optimised considerably but I'd lilke to put back into the community a small portion of the assistance I've received. Much of the basis of the code stems from the original Product Extra Fields contribution.

 

STEP 1: Find the following on approx. line 423

// If you have other modules that need to be available, put them here

 

Add the following immediately below this line:

// START: Extra Fields Contribution v2.0a
? ?$extra_fields_query = tep_db_query("
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?SELECT pef.products_extra_fields_name as name, ptf.products_extra_fields_value as value
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?FROM ". TABLE_PRODUCTS_EXTRA_FIELDS ." pef
? ? ? ? ? ? ? LEFT JOIN ?". TABLE_PRODUCTS_TO_PRODUCTS_EXTRA_FIELDS ." ptf
? ? ? ? ? ? ?ON ptf.products_extra_fields_id=pef.products_extra_fields_id
? ? ? ? ? ? ?WHERE ptf.products_id=".$row['v_products_id']." and ptf.products_extra_fields_value<>'' and (pef.languages_id='0' or pef.languages_id='".$languages_id."')
? ? ? ? ? ? ?ORDER BY products_extra_fields_order");
?
? ?while ($extra_fields = tep_db_fetch_array($extra_fields_query)) {
? ? ? ? ?$row['v_PEF_'.$extra_fields['name']] = $extra_fields['value'];
? ?}
?// END: Extra Fields Contribution

 

STEP 2: Find the following on approx. line 1047

// build the categories name section of the array based on the number of categores the user wants to have
?for($i=1;$i<$max_categories+1;$i++){
?	$filelayout = array_merge($filelayout, array('v_categories_name_' . $i => $iii++));
?}

 

Add the following immediately below:

//START: Extra Fields Contribution v2.0a
?	$extra_fields_query = tep_db_query("
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?SELECT pef.products_extra_fields_name as name
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?FROM ". TABLE_PRODUCTS_EXTRA_FIELDS ." pef
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?ORDER BY products_extra_fields_order");
? ?
? ? ?while ($extra_fields = tep_db_fetch_array($extra_fields_query)) {
? ? ? ? ? ?$filelayout = array_merge($filelayout, array('v_PEF_'.$extra_fields['name'] ?=> $iii++));
? ? ?
? ? ?}
? ? ?// END: Extra Fields Contribution v2.0a

 

STEP 3: Find the following on approx. line 2072

// VJ product attribs end

 

Add the following code after this line and before the "} else {"

// START: Extra Fields Contribution
?// Get current list of extra fields
? ? ? ? ?$extra_fields_query = tep_db_query("
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?SELECT pef.products_extra_fields_name as name
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?FROM ". TABLE_PRODUCTS_EXTRA_FIELDS ." pef
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?ORDER BY products_extra_fields_order");
? ?
? ? ?while ($extra_fields = tep_db_fetch_array($extra_fields_query)) {
? ? ?
? ? ? ?$v_current_PEF_name = $extra_fields['name'];
? ? ?$v_current_PEF_value = $items[$filelayout['v_PEF_' . $v_current_PEF_name]];
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
? ? ?//if row value is not null ?update, else delete the current entry if value is now null
? ? ?if(isset($filelayout['v_PEF_' . $v_current_PEF_name])) { // Check to see if this entry has not been added since download
? ? ?	//Find key value for this extra field
? ? ?	$extra_fields_id_query = tep_db_query("SELECT pef.products_extra_fields_id as PEFid, pef.products_extra_fields_name
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?FROM ". TABLE_PRODUCTS_EXTRA_FIELDS ." pef
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?WHERE pef.products_extra_fields_name = '".$v_current_PEF_name."'");
? ?
? ? ? ? $result = tep_db_fetch_array($extra_fields_id_query);
? ? ? ? $PEF_id = $result['PEFid'];
? ? ? ? 
? ? ? ? //Check if we are inserting, updating or deleting
? ? ? ? $extra_fields_exist_query = tep_db_query("SELECT * FROM " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_TO_PRODUCTS_EXTRA_FIELDS . " WHERE products_id = " . $v_products_id. " AND products_extra_fields_id = ".$PEF_id);
? ? ? ? ? ? ? while ($products_extra_fields_exist = tep_db_fetch_array($extra_fields_exist_query)) {
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? $extra_product_value_exist = True; //found an entry
? ? ? ? ? ? ? }
? ? ? ? 
? ? ?	if ($extra_product_value_exist) { // an entry exists
? ? ? ?if ($v_current_PEF_value == '') tep_db_query("DELETE FROM " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_TO_PRODUCTS_EXTRA_FIELDS . " where products_id = " . $v_products_id . " AND ?products_extra_fields_id = " . $PEF_id);
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?else tep_db_query("UPDATE " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_TO_PRODUCTS_EXTRA_FIELDS . " SET products_extra_fields_value = '" . tep_db_input($v_current_PEF_value) . "' WHERE products_id = " . $v_products_id . " AND ?products_extra_fields_id = " . $PEF_id);
? ? ?	}else { // an entry does not exist
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?if ($v_current_PEF_value != '') tep_db_query("INSERT INTO " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_TO_PRODUCTS_EXTRA_FIELDS . " (products_id, products_extra_fields_id, products_extra_fields_value) VALUES ('" . $v_products_id . "', '" . $PEF_id . "', '" . tep_db_input($v_current_PEF_value) . "')");
? ? ?	}
? ? ?} 
? ? ?} 
? ? ? ? ?// END: Extra Fields Contribution

 

Hope this helps somebody else. I love the Product Extra Fields contribution and this extra code makes the whole extra field issue completely dynamic.

 

Cheers, Scott

 

 

When I make these changes I get a 1054 error trying to download the database from EP:

 

1054 - Unknown column 'pef.languages_id' in 'where clause'

 

SELECT pef.products_extra_fields_name as name, ptf.products_extra_fields_value as value FROM products_extra_fields pef LEFT JOIN products_to_products_extra_fields ptf ON ptf.products_extra_fields_id=pef.products_extra_fields_id WHERE ptf.products_id=1 and ptf.products_extra_fields_value<>'' and (pef.languages_id='0' or pef.languages_id='1') ORDER BY products_extra_fields_order

 

 

Does anybody know of a reason for this?

i dont use products extra fields. since i do custom work it is easier to add the required fields manually to the database and then program them into the specific pages required, as well as adding them into easypopulate.

if you dont want the fields displayed, simple, use an if statement to check to see if there is data in the field.

 

trying to get this contribution to work with a floating field is pretty tough to do.

and since you are usually only adding from 3 to 10 fields, piece of cake to add those to a site and ep together.

 

I have added custom fields manually in the 'products' table and everything is working. But I cannot figure out how to hide blank fields in the product listing (not product_info.php). In 'catalog/index.php' and in 'catalog/advanced_search_results.php' I found that removing lines of this code will get rid of a specific field display:

 

$define_list = array('PRODUCT_LIST_MODEL' => PRODUCT_LIST_MODEL,
'PRODUCT_LIST_NAME' => PRODUCT_LIST_NAME,
'PRODUCT_LIST_MANUFACTURER' => PRODUCT_LIST_MANUFACTURER,
'PRODUCT_LIST_HOUSING_LENGTH' => PRODUCT_LIST_HOUSING_LENGTH,
'PRODUCT_LIST_TRAVEL_LENGTH' => PRODUCT_LIST_TRAVEL_LENGTH,
'PRODUCT_LIST_TUBE_BEND' => PRODUCT_LIST_TUBE_BEND,
'PRODUCT_LIST_END_STYLE' => PRODUCT_LIST_END_STYLE,
'PRODUCT_LIST_TAIL_PIECE' => PRODUCT_LIST_TAIL_PIECE,
'PRODUCT_LIST_STYLE' => PRODUCT_LIST_STYLE,
'PRODUCT_LIST_BCABLE_LENGTH' => PRODUCT_LIST_BCABLE_LENGTH,
'PRODUCT_LIST_TOTAL_LENGTH' => PRODUCT_LIST_TOTAL_LENGTH,
'PRODUCT_LIST_LENGTH' => PRODUCT_LIST_LENGTH,
'PRODUCT_LIST_END_1_FITTINGS' => PRODUCT_LIST_END_1_FITTINGS,
'PRODUCT_LIST_END_2_FITTINGS' => PRODUCT_LIST_END_2_FITTINGS,
'PRODUCT_LIST_COIL_END_BOOT' => PRODUCT_LIST_COIL_END_BOOT,
'PRODUCT_LIST_COLOR' => PRODUCT_LIST_COLOR,
'PRODUCT_LIST_LENGTH_WIRE_1' => PRODUCT_LIST_LENGTH_WIRE_1,
'PRODUCT_LIST_LENGTH_WIRE_2' => PRODUCT_LIST_LENGTH_WIRE_2,
'PRODUCT_LIST_SPARK_PLUG_BOOT' => PRODUCT_LIST_SPARK_PLUG_BOOT,
'PRODUCT_LIST_QUANTITY' => PRODUCT_LIST_QUANTITY,
'PRODUCT_LIST_WEIGHT' => PRODUCT_LIST_WEIGHT,
'PRODUCT_LIST_IMAGE' => PRODUCT_LIST_IMAGE,
'PRODUCT_LIST_BUY_NOW' => PRODUCT_LIST_BUY_NOW);

 

But I cannot figure out an if() statement that will work. Any suggestions?

I'm having an odd problem.

 

I added 8 fields to the database, and everything is ok in the admin area. These fields are stored in TABLE_PRODUCTS_DESCRIPTION. I followed the instructions outlined in this contribution and modified the queries where necessary to point to the right table.

 

The end result looks ok at first glance. All of the data pulls into Excel, but the problem is that each product is output 8 times. I figure that this has to do with the fact that the values are in the products_description table, but I've been troubleshooting all day, and can't seem to figure out why it's coming out 8 times.

 

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

 

Thanks in advance for any insight!
