I have had the 404 error when I import products with the SEO addon enabled. If it is on, disable it and see if your products show. If so, re-activate SEO and see if that gets rid of the 404 error.

You may need to uninstall and reinstall the SEO addon.

Thanks CS-Cart People,

I checked, and SEO was disabled already, but I later discovered that the reason I was having the 404 page error was because the newly created categories and subcategories in the imports were not automatically enabled.

There were disabled on creation with the imports. Enabling the categories and sub-categories resolved the issue.

I was wondering, what do I need to do to have created categories/sub-categories automatically activated. I have a column to activated products, but not categories.

Thanks guys.
