PS3 Product Update is *Really* Broken Bad

PS3 Product Update is *Really* Broken Bad

Okay...surely something is wrong on my part...

I create a product and add 4-6 Options for that product. I then go down each option and update the product name, and also the descriptions. I check the box on each product/option to NOT manage inventory.

Everytime I go back to the product and/or option, all the data is *jacked* up.

1.) the Product Name either removes everything after the quotation marks or puts a \ after the number 20
2.) Even though the box to manage inventory is checked, there is a zero in the Inventory field which causes the product to show out of stock
3.) The description field also shows multiple \\\\\\ after the number 20 and before the quotation mark 20\\\\\\"

(Note: I originally entered the text 20")

Something is TERRIBLY WRONG...What is it?

How do I apply the 3.0.1 update without restarting from square one on my store? Does the 3.0.1 fix all this?

Count me in.
I just looked at updating to 3.0.1 and realized I'd have to overwrite much of what I've modified.
Please tell me it ain't so!

it could be that your php server has the magic_quotes_gpc turned off causing issues.

try adding the at line 1 of the admin/producs_insert.php file:



I have just tested both 3.0 and 3.01 on my system and cannot reproduce the issue in either.

as for updating: yes, the update will override any modifications you have made to the pages.

In the 3.01 update, every page was updated, so it is not possible to update only the problem pages.

That seems to have fixed it


Thanks a million. This certainly helped tremendously! Who would have thought...I never thought about checking the hosting provider for the magic_quotes

Thanks again
