Hi all.

I have this problem. I have a setup where my business software syncs my articles with Magento.
At start it resulted in 2.000 new articles in Magento without a category.
I have a hard time categorizing them since there is no option to find articles that hasn’t been put in a category yet.
I have searched magento connect but i can’t find any extension that solves my problem.
Best of all would be if the Manage products page had a filter function to find products that has no category set.

Any suggestions?

It occurs to me that you can find this out by exporting all products as a CSV or an Excel file then look in the category_ids column. While not an ideal answer it will do until someone writes an extension for it.

It occurs to me that we could use the free Enhanced Admin Product Grid Magento extension for finding products not assigned to any category.

I did not test this so far, but their second screenshot on Magento Connect, linked above, shows that you can configure it to show a “Category” column in the catalog grid and that you can then sort it so that products without any category assignemnt appear at the top of the list.

Login to that website and edit the article in your manage account and specify a category.

Can you mention the article website which shows the problem.
