To import images into VirtueMart 2 there are a few things you need to know before hand. The default location of images in VirtueMart 2 is images/stories/virtuemart/, from here images are grouped by their type e.g.:
All product images reside in the folder images/stories/virtuemart/product. How does CSVI know where to locate your images? This is a combination of 2 settings:
- Path set in the template
- Name in the CSV file
On import CSVI combines these 2 settings to get the full path to the image. As an example the path in the template is set to images/stories/virtuemart/product and the file_url field in the CSV file is set to example.jpg. This will create a full path of images/stories/virtuemart/product/example.jpg. This is the correct path.
