Support » Plugin: Etsy Importer » cURL error message on import

  • I am only getting 3 or 4 products importing at a time. They’re different products every time.

    The first couple times, it produced a “cURL” error message but I can’t seem to reproduce it.

    Also, the products were having trouble displaying (404 error). I was able to solve this by navigating to WP-admin –> Settings –> Permalinks. Didn’t change anything and saved changes. But the products aren’t displaying any images or links.

    Ideally the products would import with an “add to cart” button

    Here is an example of whats importing:

    Hard to say what may be going on with the cURL error part. I know we use the WordPress HTTP API for the actual code we use. The internals of WordPress is what ultimately ends up selecting cURL as the best method. The amount imported is also a bit of a hard one to work out, because every server is different and can take different amounts of time to do the same things. We know there are some performance issues, but haven’t managed to work out how to best handle. Long running requests to do the parsing/importing are an interesting task.

    Regarding the 404 error(s), flushing the permalinks was the correct thing to do.

    The output of the content and whatnot is heavily up to the site owner, truth be told. The plugin, primarily handles the importing into the database as a post type with product posts. The product image is what gets set to the featured image, and various other details about the product are stored as either post content like you see on the url, or as post meta. However, since every site and user is different, we do not attempt to output the post meta, since we can’t predict how it’ll want to be displayed.
