Hi Victor.
Multiple categories or multiple extra field groups are not possible with the K2 Import/Export extension.
How do you plugins manage the multiple categories?

Hi,
I'm using these following plugins:
1. For multiple extra fields: www.joomreem.com/multiple-extra-fields-groups-mefg-for-k2.html
2. For multiple categories: www.netpin.gr/extensions/item/1-k2-additonal-categories

Hope you can add some support for these plugins.

Thanks.

Hi,

I have existing K2 items created but need to import over the top of them based on new custom field values. The only real field that i can use that is unique to each item is the 'alias' field.

Title will not work because some items have the exact same title with only the alias to separate them.

How can re-import a csv using your extension and only target those items with a specific alias.

Please advise.

Thanks,
Ryan.

hi Ryan,
can you use the "ID" to overwrite? That one should not change

Hi,

i followed the instructions from gavick.com mentioned in the following post to use the item alias within the image name.
www.gavick.com/forums/general-discussion/seo-k2-image-18208

I changed all recent files according to the following instructions:
$handle->file_new_name_body = $row->alias.$row->id;
.md5("Image".$row->id).  change to .$row->alias.$row->id.
md5("Image".$current->id) change to $current->alias.$current->id;
.md5("Image".$item->id).  change to .$item->alias.$item->id.
.md5("Image".$news_id).  change to .$news_alias.$news_id.
Code works for all manually uploaded images.

Actually I'm trying to change your "k2import.php" which is the only script I found to handle the images.
on line 865: $handle->file_new_name_body = md5("Image".$this->_k2_item_id);
on line 1138: $image_name = $image_savepath . md5("Image".$items[$item_count]->id) . ".jpg";

Everything I do, I dont get the alias placed within the imagename. May you give me a hint how to appropriate change the code for my needs?

many thanks in advance

Peer

That would be a bigger change, because in line 865 you have no access to the alias.
The alias is created with the code starting from line 89
you would have to save that information e.g. in a variable $this->alias and use it in the saveImage() method

I've tried using the import tool - v2.3 and have managed to upload the items but not the images. I've even downloaded libreoffice specially as I was having so many difficulties. I have the images in a directory on the server and initially managed to upload some, although I needed to open the files to see the images. I've exported the category and then reimported to make sure that the dates are correct and I get the message that the image is not present in the specified location. I've tried uploading them as a zip to import but I just get a timeout when it is trying to import the file as there are a lot of them. Can you help please?

Hi Madeleine,
make sure in the CSV file the full path of the images are give. On a UNIX/LINUX system this probably would be something like /home/www/......

Hi, the path I'm using is home/domainname/public_html/ so should be fine. I've checked it against the products that already have images and it matches, except that the folder that they are kept in is different.
Any other ideas?

please try to use a / at the beginning so it becomes /home/domainname/public_html/
