Easy Populate need help extending


Recommended Posts

hello all i keep getting this error when i try to upload the products through easy populate that my max lenth is set to 12. i went in the database and changed the lenth to 19 , but still the problem remains :(



13 VD786-PG-FGBB... ERROR! - Too many characters in the model number.

12 is the maximum on a standard OSC install.

Your maximum product_model length is set to 12

You can either shorten your model numbers or increase the size of the field in the database.


this is what i did


in my database i cliked on products

then got the table on right and changed the value as you can see below



  Field  Type Attributes Null Default Extra Action

  products_id  int(19)  No    auto_increment             

  products_quantity  int(4)  No  0               

  products_model  varchar(19)  Yes  NULL               

  products_image  varchar(64)  Yes  NULL     


any help is greatly appreciated

around line 65 of the admin/easypopulate.php


you should find


global $modelsize;

$modelsize = 12;



try changing that BUT this must match the value in your DB



hope this helps
