Products importing sucessfully but not showing up in catalog
We have run into a strange problem. We are trying to import products, I imported a test product via profiles -> import all, and it can be seen in the database and under manage categories (manage categories --> category ---> category products) but is nowhere to be found when I go to catalog --> manage products. Search for sku, product id, etc returns nothing. All other options left blank.
I am pretty stumped at this point as I received no errors when running the import. Have refreshed cache and indexes. Anyone have any ideas why this would be happening? I’m on magento 1.5.1
I need this to. Everything imported just fine, but they are not showing up in “Manage Products.” The products are showing up in the database and under “Manage Categories,” but there isn’t a name to any of the products. Why would the name not import?
Try to solve this problem this way:
If the problem is in the back-end, go to Catalog => Attributes= >>Manage Attributes menu. Click on the name attribute. Set the Allow HTML-tags on Front-end to Yes and you are all set to show ampersand and other special characters properly in the product name!
Also you can try to import your data using additional extensions. I have found one here - http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/file2cart.
Cool and really helpful. I never had problems with import while using it.
This has to be helpful.
