    Hello,
    I don’t understand how compare products is working ?
    I saw vidéo tutorials but my admin is not the same (last version) and in listing manager, e.g, I see products but it is not possible to move.
    Display for only views, featured, expires and date.
    Thanks for help and sorry for bad English. :-)

    Hi gilles,

    First you have to add a product to Listing Manager.

    then you have to create a compared products which you can link it to the product that you just created.

    You can also set stores on the compared products so that store will show on the compare table on front end listing page.

    You can then go to Theme setup > Compare settings.

    Thanks I understand now.

    But sorry, so much steps are not realistic for premium “comparison” theme, it’s not professionnal.

    OK for 1 or 2 products but for 50 ??

    Comparison should be made by one or two clics after selecting ALL products to compare.

    This theme is unusable like this to compare, update is necessary quickly.

    It’s a pity because all the rest is fine.

    Regards

    hi gilles

    If you would like to import products in bulk for comparing you can just use CSV import plugin from here http://www.premiumpress.com/plugin/csv/ to import spreadsheet

    Comparison is automatic, all products which you include will be compared automatically based on comparison settings that you have in Theme setup > Comparison settings

    hi gilles,

    You canget the sample csv file by exporting through CSV section after you installed that plugin. Click on the Export Listings option on right section to download sample file.

    Thanks but that is incomprehensible csv file not ready to use.

    Also when upload -> database error

    I saw video tutorial but it’s not same version, screens are not the same.

    In french we says “usine à gaz” if you understand…

    It’s pity because theme is good but too complicated and not enough documentation for main interest : price compare

    Hi Alex,
    when I export listing with plugin “CSV import tool”, file is like capture1

    I modifie file and save as .csv but when upload I have database error.

    Another try with modifications gives :

    Warning! Your CSV file is missing default columns headers. Any attempt to import will result in errors. Missing Column Header: post_title
    Missing Column Header: post_content

    post_title and _content are in file.

    I just want correct import model, I’m not excel expert :-)

    Thanks

    Tried using the CSV tool to upload compared products and no luck. It uploads the products just fine but not one of them is being compared. Each one is its own listing. I have exact match and or 5 word match turned on/off with no luck. Any ideas?
