I am having trouble trying to import images for my products. The csv file I have seems to work fine except the images. No matter what I try even the sample csv that came with the plugin doesn’t seem to work. Any ideas as to what is wrong?
It is just a random google image. Instead of uploading nothing, this time for the product it added a featured image and uploaded it to the media library but the image was broken and not showing. No idea why it is broken.
Now in regards to the actual product images I wish to upload (i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o656/Bloomsbury3/150basepullout_zps8e0e3d6c.jpg) I believe they are private images as if you add http:// before the file path it redirects you to phobucket website and show the image. I know that you need an account to view the image albums normally so I guess my problem is that it is private.
Thanks for the feedback Joshua. I’m not so sure that’s the problem though, as I tried uploading all the images you mentioned into separate listings, but none of the images displayed at all (private or not) – still only the text. Any luck yet on your side? Perhaps we should contact the developer directly?
Since then I have had the client sent me all of the images over drop box and am now trying to figure out how to upload them properly in a zip file. I truly couldn’t figure out how to do it externally for the image paths I had.
I have read that thread before. They never mention what you should actually put as the file path for the image if it is included in the zip file. I have tried all variations however and none of the work :/.
I may have to check that plugin out, thanks for the link Hein.
I have tried out that other csv importer that you suggested Hein and it works perfectly and the interface is so much better. I would recommend this to anyone if you come across any issues with csv importing.
