These lovely script has been working since magento 1.2, with minor changes to 1.3~1.4, while respecting the magento style, even with creative solutions, such as that used for some critical installations keeping two web servers: one for local import tasks and other for real web, which were copied thousands of new products via mysqldump… in seconds!
But now, the absolutely brilliant “magento developers, community team and contributors” offer us a new and fast way of interacting with the data.
I greatly prefer it to other private initiatives -even my MySQL inyections-, for his clarity and his total structural integration with magento and his spirit.
As a demonstration of my support to all developers and users of magento I wanted to facilitate the integration of two features from the old script to the new model: the automatic creation of categories, the automatic addition of “select” attribute options and the possibility of reindex / flush cache / clean images / recalculate rules. They can export csv files too.
Also, add a new adapter “CSV1” that allows to use the old csv files (comma-separated, single line) in the new import system (multi-line-attribute)
It works very well for me. My suggestion is to post a sample CSV file that goes with your extension. I have managed to get mine working but still trying to make the \\\"config_attributes\\\" column work. My configurable product never has all the simple products associated with it.
The array passed as parameter sets the fields to manage as “multi-value field”, but why not process them all directly? Because some fields (custom fields, description fields, etc) can contain commas in their content, but these commas do not indicate multiple values. In addition, I don’t want to change the multi-value character, for historical or backward reasons.
I use extension “Inchoo Featured Product”. And it adds attribute “inchoo_featured_product” for products. I set values of this attribute from admin panel by hand After import all these values become “0”. What can i do to prevent this attribute from import?
