Hi! oh thank God! after days of working and searcing for info that fails, I\’ve found out how to import correctly a CSV file to a Spanish (or any language, or not) magento with images, from a new installation + template.
1Âº) To Install magento go to your hosting panel via simplescripts (or create db and upload files manually etc...), go to system>my account and change to adminshop354 or something and strong password for security reasons
2Âº) To set the currency in Euros: Go to systemâconfigurationâcurrency and choose euro, save (I\’m Spanish, we have Euros -for now lol-)
3Âº) To set language to spanish: http://www.elblogdemagento.com/instalar-idioma-en-magento/ set the backend to spanish or any other language with the dropbox in the bottom, Go to system>config>etcâ¦ set all to spanish, the frontend has already spanish language
4Âº) To import the CSV file:
- Upload your images folderâs content to â/media/importâ
- Create all categories manually as part of subcategory of one called shop (which is precisely your shop\’s name)
- If you dont have to track stock you have to shut it off completely from system>config>inventory so now can see all products
- Create 1 product with all attributes, asign it to a category
- Install module http://connect20.magentocommerce.com/community/Import_Products_categories__multiple_images_and_custom_options via magento connect
- Use its CSV file and edit it with your csv info http://www.megafileupload.com/en/file/271786/Import-Products-Sample-csv.html
- Import profileâall products, wait like an hour
My fully woring CSV file has more than 1600 products, example: http://dpaste.com/666880/
5Âº) To set a cool template, you have only 1 chance, if fail go to phpmyadmin and set manually in talbe: mgn_design_change
You better use a template from magento_connect cuz manually added dont work (at least for me, perhaps version issue....)
Hope this helps!!
