I have a few thousand products that I plan to upload to a D7/Ubercart website and each one will have two or three images associated with it. Is there a way I can just dump all of those images onto the server and have them somehow be associated with their correct products? Or am I stuck uploading each one individually via the node edit fields?

Thanks!

  • Use feeds (drupal.org/project/feeds), create custom target to reach required effect – Oleg Sherbakov Jun 5 '13 at 22:43
  • i think it is not possible, instead you can search for multiple image upload for a product. – Bala Jun 6 '13 at 3:28

The way I did it in similar, but not exact circumstances, was to use Node export module. It has it's import option. On an import, it expects images to be already uploaded, so the steps are:

  • Create two products with couple of images manually
  • See where it's images went
  • Upload the rest of your images in the same place
  • Export your products to a file format you are comfortable with, like CSV / DSV
  • Add the rest of your products to that file, using your manually added ones as examples
  • Import products from file

My nodes weren't Ubercart products, but above procedure should work none the less.

Remember: Files uploaded will not be managed until and unless you import nodes to use them, so it's a good idea to turn off any "garbage cleaning" modules you may have to avoid their deletion.

  • That's an interesting method. I will give it a shot and will report back here with the results. Thanks! – hockey2112 Jun 7 '13 at 21:36
