I am developing a Magento site using v. 1.7. The site is working great so far and I am able to import
products and images just fine.
The problem, however, is that although I can see the images on the front end, if I go to Manage Products and pull up
one of the products I just imported and go to the Images tab, it shows No Image.
Hi, did you ever find a solution to your problem? I’m having the exact same issue. v. 1.7. Products imported fine, show up on the front-end, but nothing on the backend under products > images. This is a very odd frustrating problem. Is there anyone else who has worked this out?
I was having this issue and solved it by adding a value to the field: _media_attribute_id in the import csv.
If you manually insert one image and then export, you will see a number in that field, I just put that same number into _media_attribute_id for all the products in the import csv, and they now show up in the admin also.
