This connected to a previous post regarding categories. But slightly different, it seems whenever I import any products the category that the product should be placed in doesn’t happen.
The import just creates a new category of the same name. See here: http://screencast.com/t/o25erhsZhDRh
I turned off the category importer on magmi, that didn’t help as the category and sub category (as I tested again with a Category/SubCategory) was just created again at the end of the category tree in Magento. But this time didn’t add any products to the new categories it created.
So I am totally lost as to what could be going on.
So I have tested, and yes the product now imports into the correct category without a new category being created, but it also imports into Root Category and sub category and sub sub category.
Even though I only included the Sub and Sub/sub category. See here: http://screencast.com/t/VJbZL31yyLLL
In an ideal world I would prefer just the configurable product imported into the category, but that may not be possible.
I am also thinking does it really matter? As the product is in the correct categories, it is just displaying differently in magento product admin to previous imports, which I believe a different import mechanism was used. ?
