The e-commerce.

Help needed please urgently


Recommended Posts

Hi all - I have just had to re-install my website on a new server/host and my website seems to be slightly broken. I have a basic install of easy populate, with only a 2 category depth, and no attributes.I upload my CSV file into my temp directory, and then import it using the EP panel in my admin.The reason for me updating it this way instead of the usual way of splitting the file is that i keep getting timeouts once I have more than about 1200 products.Then I figured out you could just transfer it using the FTP program and just insert the file as if you have already split it!I find that this way I can upload a csv file with about 1200 products in and update the whole lot all at once!


In the OScommerce admin it shows all my products, but not on the website - all totals are shown, but as soon as you go into any category, there is nothing!


Is this an easy populate error, or must I look somewhere else?


I have tried resetting the category depth back to 7 from 2, thinking that it needs 1 or so more(I thought maybe it reads the first category depth as the 2nd) and have reloaded the CSV file and updated it again to see if that fixes it, but no luck.

I just noticed something else - when I click on a category, like "CPU Cooler", the site comes up with the sub-category headings at the top, but above that it says "categories", not "CPU Cooler". then when one clicks on a sub-category like "ASUS", the site of course does not show the products in the sub-category, and the heading goes back to "Goodies for sale", instead of the sub-category. My site is at http://russalpc.co.za


Many thanks in anticipation
