    Default Easy Populate Import not displaying in categories/products

    So first post and first time Zen Cart user. website is Synthetic Motorsports. Still finding my way around but I am vary familiar with forum etiquette and have used the FAQ and search function quite a bit already. I installed easy populate and ckeditor last night with filezilla. ckeditor installed fine but Easy Populate did not give me the option to use it in the tools drop down. I can go direct to the easypopulate.php like it was indicated to everyone on the you tube install video.

    So I exported the initial database and looked at the headers across the top. pulling my sql database from my previous cart I realigned the columns to match what is in the zen database. After adding a v_products_model (my db didn't have this) and adding the import category (test examples), I imported this csv file which has over 300 items in it. It did not show any errors from the import. When I went back and refreshed the test example category but only 1 of the items shows up.Name:  screen shot.jpg

    I then went and did a second import with only 4 files. Again this imported without error but is not showing up in the test examples category. It wont let me upload the csv but again I matched up the correct columns with the correct header. It shows 5 items in the test examples category but it only display's the one shown above. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

    Thanks,

    Well after tinkering with the data for a couple more hours I figured out what was wrong. I needed to add a 1 in the status field and a date modified field.

    Remove that version of Easy Populate and install chadderuski's Version 4.

    This version is not (yet) in the plugins area, but there is a link to GITHUB. Find the thread for Easy Populate V 4.

    No model field in record

    Easy Populate (regardless of version) requires each product record to have a UNIQUE MODEL NUMBER, because this is used by EP as a reference to populate the database.

    You seem not to have given your products UNIQUE MODEL NUMBERS, so EP is not importing anything.

    I have a WIKI article on Easy Populate 1.2.5.4. and while some of it is redundant info, much of it remains relevant.

    Irrespective of what data your supplier sends you, the file format for upload to zencart using EP must be in accordance with the zencart database tables/fields, and the requirements for loading EP.

    At a quick glance, it would appear you have sufficient data in that feed to use in an EP upload.
