This template works as a great complement to our Yahoo Store Data Backup Template. This template, when published on your site, will create a page which lists all your ids of your products and the sections they are in. This allows you to upload this file and automatically place all your items in their appropriate sections.
This template has been tested but as always you should double check your data and do test uploads with one or two items to be safe.
To install and use the template:
First, save the file from below and upload them with the template upload program.
Now, simply create a new item (using the advanced editor just go to the contents page and click new) and give it an ID of "yst-contents-upload" (without the quotes) and set the template name to "yst-contents-upload".
Now you can go to the page (either in the editor in the live site). Copy the entire contents of the page (Ctrl-A will highlight it all in Explorer and then Ctrl-C to copy). Open any text editor (like Notepad), and press Ctrl-V to paste. In order to make sure it uploads well, make sure there is one, and only one, carriage return at the end of the listing. Then save the file and you can now open it in Excel or upload it to your store as is. When opening in excel just tell it that the file is a delimited file with commas as the delimiter and double quotes " as the text qualifier.
* For any database upload you should test with one item first and always use the ADD button (unless you know otherwise). Also, review the items in the CONTENTS property of your home page using the advanced editor and remove any items placed there by the upload improperly.
To download the template simply right click on the following link and use the "Save as" option to save them to a folder
