    setting up shop Link to this post

    Wow, SS is a very tidy CMS and pretty simple to get running. I am evaluating both SS and Joomla for a e-commerce site with 4000+ items.

    I like the look of SS but have a few concerns.

    Bulk uploading files ---- Doesn't seem to be a solution.
    CSV importing/exporting --- again i havn't seen a module to do this.

    I read some posts about a bulkuploader and cvs importing but both seem to be developmental.

    I dont really want to reinvent the wheel here, im sure several other SS sites doing ecommerce have the same issues.

    Appreciate all comments.

    CSV importing/exporting is quite good with the new ModelAdmin, that seems to make good use of a CSV import / output tool. I'm not sure Ecommerce has this support yet. I know that one of the core devs did product CSV import for https://sunshinepharmacy.co.nz/, don't know if this work has been released yet but the backbones for it are there at least.

    Bulk uploading files - in the CMS you have to select files from your computer one by one but you can upload those in a group. Other way to bulk upload is to just do it via FTP. Your FTP software should support dragging folders and multiple files etc, and thats probably the quickest method for bulk files
