Tool for importing / exporting items to / from K2

Hi,

This is a great utility and I have tried to follow the instructions very carefully. Everything works except I am having the same problem a couple other users reported, that K2 import is putting something strange in the "start publishing" field:

-0001-11-30 00:00:00

Which is stopping the items from appearing. I thought it might be that I was using templates, so I actually made a fresh install of Joomla and K2 just to test this, but it is still giving me the issue. The time zone is set to UTC.

The file that I am trying to upload is attached. I will PM my testing site and super user details. Thanks.

I am just at a loss.

About the previous issue, the solution I found was to create a column and force something to go in to the "Publish Up" field. This will then put something in that field instead of the bad text.

You must be extremely careful that whatever spreadsheet program you use (and libreoffice does handle it better than excel - i chased that problem for at least an hour) does not make the field into a date field with a different format. Go into cell formatting and override the cells to be text fields, and make sure the date is entered exactly YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS or it will not work. I don't know if specifying a date field to use that format would work.

Disappointed in this bug, because as far as I can tell I followed the instructions perfectly, but still a useful product at a reasonable price.

Mike

The file that I am trying to upload is 8MB and it has 10.000 items but I get error message while I am trying to upload it.

How can I upload that items?

Also how the images are imported to k2 items?

Sorry I was on holidays when you wrote your messages.

@mikexcite How would you like the extension to react on wrong formated date. I'm happy to implement good suggestions.

@stavros What an error do you get?
Images can be imported by the full path. Check the Instruction for that: www.individual-it.net/Instructions-for-K2-Import-Component.html

Using Joomla 2.5.8 with K2 2.6.5 with 0.9a and the issue with newly imported items not showing UNLESS you edit+save is the LANGUAGE field. Imports as blank and needs the ' * ' (star, shift + # eight).



Is there a quick fix for this? Working great besides this!

I'm testing the export from Joomla 1.5.26 locally (xammp) into a clean install of Joomla 2.5.9 and I keep getting a "403 - You are not authorized to view this resource error" when I create a menu item with K2 categories. I changed the "Access" column from 0 to 1, but it didn't solve the problem. What's causing this issue and how can I fix it? Working on a client site and need an answer as soon as possible.

Hi All!

I need priority support for this extension. I'd like to use it daily to update my k2 items/products.

My problem: There is few hundred items in my database and I'd like to update only few extrafields of them daily. The current version of the import tool set the value of non-existing fields (in csv) to default. I need it to leave the current value in database of non-existing fields and update only the fields that exists in csv file.

Sorry for my english, I hope it's understandable.

I can pay for this modification. Best regards

Hi there,

I am trying to export approx. 180 items from K2 on Joomla 1.5 install to K2 on Joomla 3.0 install. Any idea when this component will be 3.0 compatible? I really hope I didn't waste my money on this.
