Pity me! Please help with these Easypopulate problems

Recommended Posts

Hello my fellow strugglers!

 

I just downloaded the easypopulate pack. I copied easypopulate.php and easypopulate_functions.php to admin directory.

 

I also edited catalog by adding the following:

'<a href="' . tep_href_link('easypopulate.php', '', 'NONSSL') . '" class="menuBoxContentLink">Easy Populate</a><br>'.

 

I am having the following problems - there is no php link in admin, additionally the online catalog link in admin now delivers 404 page error. I dont have a catalog or tempdir directory anywhere and am not sure where to put one or what to put in it to make easypopulate work.

 

Any kind souls out there pity me, and Please help! I've checked the forums ...

 

 

by the ways are we supposed to edit the easypopulate.php file so it only has php scipt or should I include all of this :-

Holy smokes, buddy! With a post like that, you're lucky to get a response...not a good idea to post the entire PHP file to a message...use code clips.

 

Go back through the Easypopulate install instructions step by step and double-check your work. It worked first try for us, although we _did_ have to manually create the catalog/temp folder. Here's another couple of hints for you: 1) Always have 2 or more products in your file...uploading doesn't always work when only 1 product exists, 2) always double check the store after uploading...now and then with a new category of products, the very first item in your data file is often missing, 3) use a separate data file for each separate category or sub category ...using one big file becomes a hassle after awhile, 4) create a catalog/temp folder on your local machine and browse to it with the Easypopulate admin page rather than ftp'ing the data to the server and then installing it...it's less work and works great.

ya dont need to do allllll that

to much hassle

just copy the files, then it works if ya go to www.yerdomain.whatever/catalog/admin/easypopulate.php, works to

 

the /catalog you do have, tough it might be under a diff name (its the name of the folder ya installed oscommerce in) like www.yerdomain.com/webshop

 

ya need to make a temp there for easypopulate and chmod id 777 if ya wanna use the splitfile function, if not no need for the folder much

 

in the code, reread it, theres prolly a typo

copy paste again and dun forget the ; at the end

 

good luck and great sales

I am looking a way to add multiple products all with similar attributes, for example say I add 20 tshirts all with the attributes of size and colour to do this through the 'standard' method would take ages. Does the easypopulate module aim to solve this problem or is there another module that would be better.

 

I guess what I need is a way to define all products within the sub-category tshirts to have attributes of size and colour. <_<

you dont have to even call the directory temp you can call it what you want even laughing hyena as long as you edit the easypopulate.php file to reflect the name of the directory that you wish to use
