Do you have a lot of comments.
a loop that exports just 100 items would be possible but I would have to change a lot in the background.

@All who have problems with international characters,
I think I found the source of our problem.
fgetcsv is not really binary save, it depends on the environment variable LANG, I cannot predict it and not set it inside of joomla.
www.php.net/manual/en/function.fgetcsv.php
"Locale setting is taken into account by this function. If LANG is e.g. en_US.UTF-8, files in one-byte encoding are read wrong by this function. "

This means I need an own csv import function.
I will fix this problem, but it might take a while.

Please put in mind JSon does not convert UTF characters. I faced this issue in Arabic when I installed a k2 article submit component (I thinks it is something Story). I used your import script and it really saves tons of time. However, it imports all characters except Arabic.

I would really be happy if this issue is resolved for all international users. Keep up the good work.

The version 0.9_beta3 is out and is has a complete new csv parsing function.
As I was to lazy to write an own one I've stolen it from: thuejk.blogspot.com/2010/01/phps-implementation-of-fgetcsv-and.html

This is the best csv parsing function I could find and it seems to work very well. I have positive feedback with Greek and Cyrillic items, so I hope all UTF8 characters should work fine now.

I also changes the peace of code that generates the alias, now the original code of K2 is used. Its more complex but it should work with the whole UTF8 range.

So have fun with the new version: extensions.joomla.org/extensions/extension-specific/k2-extensions/12408 and don't forget to rate it at
The Joomla! Extensions Directory if you like it.

As this forum has no RSS and no email notification in the case of a problem it might be faster to write me an email: www.individual-it.net/en/kontakt-impressum.htm or a twitter messege: twitter.com/individualit.

For people who didn't use the extension before here some pics:

Hello,

i have just purchased the tool and i want to do the following:

Import all K2 stuff from my old Joomla 1.5 (running latest K2) to my new Joomla 2.5 (running latest K2).

I install the component on both systems, they run on the same server (/ and /25/). When i export in the 1.5 i get a 5mb file. When i try to import this file in 2.5, all seems to be ok, but when i want to assosiate the rows the image (path to image) value is missing. What can i do about this? How can i fix it?

Thank you very much,
greets

Sorry this forum has no RSS that’s why its hard to keep track with the questions.

The export does not export the image, but you still can import images but you would have to do this manually.
But if you are using the same K2 version in both joomla installations, try just to copy the MySQL tables via phpmyadmin

Hi,
could you please tell me what joomla and PHP version do you use and when exactly this error occurs?

do you try to upload a ZIP file?
