Importing items using Libre Office csv works fine for me, except images. Images are in a folder on the server. The message I get for all images are like this:

importing items, please stand by
items were imported, but with some problems:
row: 2 - save item -
could not copy the file 002611.jpg
Row: 2 / memory peak: 22 MB


When the link to the images is wrong I get the expected "not found" message, so the path should be ok.
What else could be wrong?

Thank you!

I now found that my images are actually imported correctly in spite of the error message. Now I cleared the gallery columns, and the error messages are gone. So the problem was the gallery images, not the main item images. Perhaps because I don't have the gallery extension installed.

There's still another problem:
After importing the 25 items of my test file, the importer keeps importing infinitely.
The item title will be like this:

Imported Item - 2012-10-22 09:45:57


Any idea?

(This is now K2Import v. 0.9stable)

Need to import images. I don't understand where to find the image information in the K2 so it can be put in the CSV. I already had to modify the CSV file to allow change to access level. I really need to get the images imported as well. I've been messing with this for 2 days and it's eating much of my time. Your directions for importing images is not very clear.

Sorry for the late answer I didn't get any emails even I subscribed to the forum :-(

For importing images you need to give the whole path of the image. e.g. you can put them in the tmp directory. see the example file on my page: www.individual-it.net/Instructions-for-K2-Import-Component.html

Bought the component a couple of days ago. Need help badly in importing over 15,000 Joomla articles. Left the message in this forum but no response. See here: getk2.org/community/New-to-K2-Ask-here-first/167370-K2-Import--Export-09---How-to-use-it

Thanks.

Hi,
sorry I cannot watch the complete forum but I try to answer the questions in this thread.

Here is the Instructions for the K2 import/export component.

Its imports and exports K2 items. So you eather could create a CSV based on my example or you just create some K2 items and hit the export button, then you get a nice example file.
P.S. In my experience LibreOffice handles the CSV files better than Excel.

Hope that helps, if not ask again.
