importing images/descriptions into database

I just completed the DataAssist portion and now I want to upload images and descriptions to populate the database.

I updated to Universal Email 4.0.0 and uninstalled Digital File Pro as recommended. I can't seem to find documentation for Universal Email 4 on how to perform the task of populating the database. Even on the Universal Email 4 documentation it keeps referring back to Digital File Pro which I was told to delete.

Will I need to manually create catagories for uploading or will those be created automaticaly? How do I perform the uploads? Any documentation? It would really be beneficial to have a complete handbook based on a ground up approach for Ecommerce. I have the SuperSuite and have designed an Ecommerce site with SiteAssist Pro and CSS Sculptor.........finished DataAssist and now want to populate the database.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thanks

The guide that is located here should work for your situation, but it does refer to the Digital File Pro still. In this guide where it refers to Insert > WebAssist > Digital File Pro you can use Insert > WebAssist > File Manipulation.

Other than that everything else should match up and let you add file uploads to your DataAssist pages. When it comes to adding uploads to the form this is all that is done when you add the upload. Any db manipulation that you would like to do would need to be done via DataAssist.

Thank you

I will look at the documentation. I had two conflicting files and tried them both. One version actually had me add a "submit" button.

I'd like to know if it's possible to perform bulk uploads for populating a new store and what extension is used if any? Perhaps I would have to find a way in MySql? I see there is a new interface for SQL called Workbench..........

Thanks again,

Most MySQL gui tools will have the ability to load records from a file so that you can insert more than one at a time. When it comes to uploading the files you can add in as many file upload server behaviors as you would like on a page to handle many file uploads at a time.

Server behaviors

Eric:

Is there any detailed information on how to add these behaviors for uploading multiple files for the same catagories all at the same time.

For example all the images or thumbnails at the same time rather than upload as individual files.

Thanks

When you apply an upload server behavior to the page on step 2 you can specify multiple outputs for the file including thumbnails and other resized images from the one file. Is this what you are referring to? If not please explain a little more about what you are trying to accomplish and we will help you get going or find the rite docs on it.
