I also have similar problem.
I want to import several images into custom image field at once.
If I use:
custom_title^custom_value
Image custom field^image1.jpg~image2.jpg

I get empty fields. I have also tried with full path - no difference.

If I use:
Image custom field
image1.jpg

I manage to get only one value.

But with:
Image custom field
image1.jpg|image2.jpg


I get nothing.(also tried full paths and ~ in all examples without success)
All files are present in virtuemart_medias tables.

However when I do the export I get custom image field ID:
custom_title^custom_value
Image custom field~Image custom field^1612~115


It works vice-versa but I don't want to use custom image IDs. My automation process would become a real nightmare if I need to check every image ID in Virtuemart media.

My CSV files are attached.

Thank you.

Hello,
Several custom attributes with unique name is represented as one group of attributes with options to choose from.
If you have image_custom_field1 and image_custom_field2 then user can choose both of options. Nobody wants that.
If you for example sell shoes and you want your customers to choose between black and white laces, you don't want them to be able to select both.
On the other hand if you have image_custom_field1 with black.jpg|white.jpg customer can choose only one option.

Yes that explains it.

The only solution I see here is to add another function to your import so your plugin search virtuemart_medias table for image name provided in CSV or XML and pick image ID's automatically. I don't know how much work is that but if you point me to a correct file maybe I could try to add that functionality by myself?

We have fixed this issue with the attached patch file. You can load the patch file and run the import for multiple Image custom fields. Example import content would be


product_sku;custom_title;custom_value
10001;Image~Image;images/virtuemart/product/logo1.jpg~images/virtuemart/product/logo2.jpg

Hello,
I created this issue as a new post.

But with:
Image custom field
image1.jpg|image2.jpg

I get nothing.(also tried full paths and ~ in all examples without success)
All files are present in virtuemart_medias tables.


We don't have an option for multiple images to be converted as ids yet. May i ask why not have multiple image custom fields and use them as individual template fields? Something like


product_sku;image custom field1; image custom field2;image custom field3
10001;image1.jpg;image2.jpg;image3.jpg


Will this work for you?
Kind regards,

Tharuna

Working manually with image IDs is headache :(
