I am new to virtue mart and have over the last couple of days been working my way around the system to work out how to use it. I need to upload about 800 items and would like to use the excel system that has been posted on here to upload my products. I have followed the zip instructions but when I get to the class name and class method I am unable to find them in the boxes. Do I need to install something else to allow me to continue. ?

The hack is for vm 1.0.x and things do not work the same in vm 1.1. Please check previous posts in the thread.

Hi Joseph,

thanks for your reply. I have visited past replies, could not find anything for vm1.1.x and also sounds like there is no work done in that area. I appreciate if you feel its worth working in that area.

any other guide welcomed.

looking forward to hearing from you.

many thanks.
om.

As from vm 1.1, vm stops provide data upload function and leave that to CSVI. There are lots more consideration in adding the xls upload function to vm.

The ps_csv error is related to the enclosure character defined on the upload page. If you use xls upload, this error should not occur.

For CSVI support, please contact their website.

Hi Joseph!
I do the installation step by step, but the "CSV/Excel File Upload" don't appears to me. How can i solve it? I'm working with Joomla! 1.5.15 in Spanish and VirtueMart 1.1.5 in Spanish too.
Thanks for your time!

Note: I proved it with and without "CSV Improved" installed and nothing.
