Default Category Import bug

https://bugtracker.qtmsoft.com/view.php?id=43685

X-cart 5.1.5 bug.

Create categories, export them, delete them, and then import. CleanURLs and Bread crumb structure is messed up.

http://youtu.be/z_SDU2o4woE - Video demonstration.

Just wanted to make sure this was spotted quickly. Happens with any imported categories as far as I know. I have been writing a python script that creates categories.csv files automatically, and noticed that all my imported categories had the wrong path info. Working in Windows 7.

Anyone else reproduce or experience this problem?

I'm curious if you have any news about this bug, or it has been verified by the team. I mentioned it in a blog post on my new site: http://xcartguru.com/re-branding-and...eloved-x-cart/ and I am wondering if there is a solution yet?

I had a client call me who was experiencing this very problem today. Also made an updated video showing the exact problem on a linux box hosted by TSS. previously I thought it might be just a Windows specific problem.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for the visual demonstration of "catching the bug", it's very clear and helpful. This bug has a "major" status which means it will be included into the nearest release - v.5.1.6.

Was this issue actually fixed in X-cart 5.1.6? I upgraded from 5.1.5 to 5.1.6 today and my store is still experiencing very weird breadcrumbs.

As I can see, the bug is marked as fixed.
Is it possible that you imported the data before the store was upgraded?

Hi Brian!

I just tested Mike's instruction on my 5.1.6 and it works properly. Could you please send me your CSV file that causes the problems on your installation?

Thank you.

Tony.

Default Re: Category Import bug

Ksenia and Tony,

I was afraid someone was going to say that I would have to re-import. Much easier said than done. With about 70 categories and about 1500 products, I am at about 7 hours into working on this. A few mistakes and one restart did not help, but it took some working with this issue to fully understand what I needed to do.

At first I only exported the products and re-imported them. No luck. After restoring the store, I tried deleting and re-importing just the categories. While this did fix the basic issue, we then had 1500 products and 70 categories with nothing in them. Re-importing the products is quite a hassle and generates duplicates. Mainly due to many of our SKU's having leading zeros and Excel not handling this well. Additionally it takes forever to delete any significant amount of categories or products in xc5 and when you do, the images are deleted. They must be re-uploaded. Been chasing my tail all day.

However, I can confirm that if you take the time to delete everything, manually go through the .csv files to fix category errors and category path errors, and re-import, the issue is fixed.

We still have an issue with our Product Filter not triggering after re-importing everything (attributes and product attributes included), but this is minor by comparison.

So how do you fix this problem if you already have it messed up? I deleted all my categories and made new ones and the breadcrumbs are all screwed up. Will reimporting all my products fix this? They aren't even linked to categories at all.
