I’m having trouble importing stores to my client’s website. The loader never advances and the stores never upload. They haven’t had problems in the past. The site is hosted on Pantheon and the file contains about 94 locations. Any ideas why this is happening?January 29, 2019 at 2:28 PM #58557
Thank you for providing your plugin environment and screenshots.
Can you turn on the import messages and report what it is showing?
Do you have your csv file properly formatted? I,e no sl_id column if they are not replacing a current location?January 29, 2019 at 2:33 PM #58558
I don’t seem to be getting any import messages. The screen never advances past the 0% loader. However, I can confirm that the csv file is being uploaded to the server.
The columns I’m using are:
sl_store sl_address sl_address2 sl_city sl_state sl_zip sl_phone

To see Import messages you need to turn on messages by checking it off under General/Admin/log import messages. It shows the files that are being loaded as they load, (check off load data) but the verbiage at the bottom line as you have shown is not appearing at the moment.
I tested my site and it imported and the blue boxes showing status worked. So now I am wondering if there is an issue with your geocoding API key or something else, like communication or firewall on the server is preventing your upload.January 30, 2019 at 11:41 AM #58576
I turned on import messages in General/Admin but they’re still not showing up.
The odd thing is we have another site using the same plugin environment on the same server and it’s working fine. I also tested everything locally and it worked fine.January 30, 2019 at 11:48 AM #58577
I should also note that this has worked in the past, as early as October 2018. Could it be an issue with WordPress 5.0.x?January 30, 2019 at 12:13 PM #58582
WP 5 could be causing the issue with the import log messages, but WP version 5.0.3 fixed the CSV file upload. yes they broke that import functionality before.But you are showing that you are using WP 5.0.3 That should have fixed any import issues.
I am not sure if your site configuration is different then mine, Our developer has been
I see you are showing Power as version 5.0, there was an update, it should be 5.0.1 deactivate the SLp and Power plugin and see if you get a message to update or there is a newer update. The version under our version file was mislabeled, I just noticed that. You should have version 5.0.1 availableJanuary 30, 2019 at 12:23 PM #58583
You dont have to worry about updating Power to 5.0.1 I am told, there will be a new version coming out. Power 5.0.1 had an attempt at a work around for the WP bug they introduced
So now I guess it may be a good idea to make sure your server is talking to Google APi etc. But you said the locations were stuck and not loading at all? or is it they are just not geocoding? if you check off the box to skip geocoding do they load?
Other then that you can send your csv file to us at Contact us as attachment in email and I can review if you wantJanuary 30, 2019 at 12:47 PM #58584
I’ve actually reached out to the server via a support ticket because I cloned the live site into a test environment on the same server and it worked there.
I tried checking the box to skip geocoding and it still doesn’t progress past 0% (see the attached image).January 31, 2019 at 12:39 PM #58591
I have no guesses /options left to explore. 🙁
If it is working on your cloned test site environment and not on your regular site, then I think you need to look into the differences there, I cannott make any inferences with the screenshot provided. It works for me, it works on your other site, so the question is,, what is the difference in plugins or server or security settings or site configuration that differentiates the two.
You can view the Import docs and see if anything jumps out at you. I.e CRON etc
P.S. About the import messages: Spoke to the developer and that feature was disabled in one of the updates for Power . large sites uploading large files were finding it slowed and could crash their servers because of the real estate (resources) being used within the server. Most people were not using the feature. He will take out that enable Log import and import message checkbox at some future update but he is very much involved in working with a large client at this time with focus on other priorities and customization
