Importing MySQL questions

Importing MySQL questions

Now that I've figured out how to do the left nav, I've got another question.

I have about 2700 items to put into a MySQL database that I want to import from an Excel file but got kind of stuck as to how I would go about linking up all of the images.

I've exported a CSV file from phpMyAdmin and started to add the info to the necessary columns/rows, but how would link up the images? I could do it manually in the admin area but that would take FOREVER...

Any thoughts/suggestions?

You could create a column for the image name in the excel spreadsheet and enter the image name in excel and upate the images with ftp to a single directory (or include the directory with the file name in the spreadsheet). Then you can import the image names to the database with the rest of the data.

Sounds good. I was hoping that was the case.

Looks like I need to add a column for the small image & the large ones correct?

The other question that I had was, I noticed that there are a few columns that have the following in them:

<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Geneva; color: #333333">Size : 20 x 20&#160;</p> <p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Geneva; color: #333333">Item Type : Print on canvas&#160;&#160;</p>

<p><span class="\&quot;Apple-style-span\&quot;" style="\&quot;font-family:">Size:<span class="\&quot;Apple-tab-span\&quot;" style="\&quot;white-space:"> </span>&#160;19 3/4 x 19 3/4</span>&#160;<br /><span class="\&quot;Apple-style-span\&quot;" style="\&quot;font-family:">Type:&#160;Print on canvas</span>&#160;</p>

<p><span class="\&quot;Apple-style-span\&quot;" style="\&quot;font-family:">Size:<span class="\&quot;Apple-tab-span\&quot;" style="\&quot;white-space:"> </span>&#160;19 3/4 x 19 3/4</span>&#160;<br /><span class="\&quot;Apple-style-span\&quot;" style="\&quot;font-family:">Type:&#160;Print on canvas</span>&#160;</p>

Is this something I'll have to add manually in html before updating my database as well? Or can I just go ahead & add to the columns & put in the descriptions without the html?

You can put them in without html.

More database issues...

Will do.

Now on to another question....

I had the site set up & working at awas just fine, but now when I moved everything over to awallartstore.com, it seems that the category links aren't working...
I downloaded the existing database (titled db284823284) and imported it into a new one (titled awas) to a new database at awallartstore.com using phpMyAdmin but can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I'm sure there's something I'm missing here, could you point me in the right direction?

Probably the local or remote root directory settings in the WA_Globals file.

I looked at the WA_Globals.php file and everything seems to be correct.

Here's what I have:

$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = "https://awallartstore.com/" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Site_Name = "A Wall Art Store" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Address = "149 Standard";
$WAGLOBAL_City = "El Segundo";
$WAGLOBAL_State = "CA";
$WAGLOBAL_Zip = "90245";
$WAGLOBAL_Country = "USA";
$WAGLOBAL_GoogleAPIKey = "ABQIAAAA9kH9PD4z9WFvSN_DvnrvtxTeRESP1zCc9oQO_6arlMgopXBV5hRQ3DBvjVqDJQOu1OYzyGA5XM-l3g";
$WAGLOBAL_localRoot = "/";
$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "/";

Could it possibly be something in the menu.php or intermediate.php files? I'm really drawing a blank here...

Maybe if you edited the menus with menu writer it may have overwritten the globals reference.

The only changes I made were to the localhost.php file and the WA_Globals.php file.

I'm not sure then. What is wrong with the link exactly?
