Tool for importing / exporting items to / from K2

Hi there,

The component is working fine except for two problems:

1. The alias is importing without considering the hifen. Ex.: "Agricultor-prefeitura-de-maranguape-esaf-fundamental-2008" turns in "agricultorprefeiturademaranguapeesaffundamental2008" .

2. The Attachment1 Title is not being recognized and it is taking the name of the file instead of the name put in the csv file.

I'm using LibreOffice, my csv file is encoded in UTF-8 and I'm putting quotation marks in all text cells.

Since all others csv data is being imported correctly I'm not understanding why the two issues above are happening.

Can anyone help me with it please?

Thanks in advance.

PS: I put the csv file attached.

Hi,
I will have a look at it, but could you please report what PHP / Joomla / K2 / Import-tool version you are using.

Just declared the version 0.9 as stable and published it: www.individual-it.net/en/Joomla/ .
The only change from 0.9_beta4 are that it now accepts "-" in the aliases and the auto association with the fields are improved a (very) little bit.

@Franklin This version should solve your problem with the aliases. And are you sure you associated the Attachment Title correctly with the right column in the CSV file. If in the "associate the fields" screen the attachment title dropdown is set to "take standard or leave empty" the software will try to generate a title.
The automatic association is just guess work. You have always to double-check it. But you can help it by naming the column "Attachment Title 1" instead of "Attachment1 Title". I changed my example file and the export according to it.
P.S. if your download link does not work anymore, write me a short email

Hi,

I was leaving the attachment title empty in the "associate the fields". It's working fine now.

Could you please send the new stable version to my email? I was not able to find the link to download it again.

Thank you.

Hello,

I already have 5,000 items living in K2. Now I need to import 5,000 images, one for each item.

Does this tool can import only item images and leave the rest of the items info just as they are already in the database?

That would solve my problem

Please advise.

The easiest way would be to export the items, then change the CSV with the images and the reimport the file with the option: Overwrite - based on ID.

BUT before you are doing this make a full database backup!!!
