Ive never seen a post that covered a way to import categories and product without hacking Magento in some way.  I would think this would be the most important step to cover.  .  If I have a product list like “category” “product name” “description” “image link” etc..
How do I import it?

The only problem with this method is that you can’t set any meta data for the categories. Has anyone found a solution to this? Or is there a way to massively edit the categories once you import them?
