No, there are not any newer instructions but I assumed since you were asking a question about the googlefeeder that you were looking in its instructions. Step 6 states


Your right and the Googlefeeder requires VErsion Checker which needs to be edited. My issue is in the editing of Versionchecker which is needed to make Googlefeeder work. So, now we get to my problem right. All are installed but I get the error that says I need to install Versionchecker. Any ideas? I will email you my edited VErsionchecker file?

I don't know how else to state it. This contribution does not require the Version Checker contribution. If you want to use it though, you just need to do as the instructions state and upload the files. No editing required!

My guess is that you made a mistake in the edit of the googlefeeder.php file and an error is occurring. Your host probably has error reporting turned off so you wouldn't see the error. You should try redoing the file first and if it still fails, contact your host and ask them to see if it is causing an error.

My Website provider is APLUS.NET Since I installed your Google feed and then two others GoogleData Feeds and none have worked and now I installed your again meticulously. I have to think this is a server issue. Have you heard anything about APLUS.NET hosting and OSCOMMERCE?

The error means you have the seo option enabled in the settings but don't have the Ultimate SEO V2.2d contribution installed. You either need to turn off that setting or install that contribution.

The code in the contribution doesn't have any such coding problems so any errors you are seeing are from some change you made. Try using a clean file and make the changes one at a time.

I just noticed that is you don't count the blank lines your line 13 would be

define('DEFAULT_LANGUAGE', 1);

And from there on all lines don't have ' ' quotes. Notice your line did't put '1' like in all the preceeding lines and all lines thereafter don't have quote.

Don't know here. Just something I noticed
Thanks for all your help
Greg

I have the data feed installed and it is working properly and uploading properly. Google has just posted my items and they all have broken links. The data feed is creating the urls

niagarafallsgallery.com/product_info.php?products_id=29

They should have the /catalog directory after the .com to workright. Is should look like this

niagarafallsgallery.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=29

What would I do to fix this?

Thank you in advance.
Greg

Hi Jack,

I read this link regarding upcoming changes to Google Product Search. What changes would be needed to accomodate the availability, Google product category and additional images attributes?

Thanks for the fantastic contribution!

Regards,
Joe

Hi Jack,

I read this link regarding upcoming changes to Google Product Search. What changes would be needed to accomodate the availability, Google product category and additional images attributes?

Thanks for the fantastic contribution!

The availability and product category will require additional fields in the database unless those are fixed. For example, some shops are never out of stock for any of their products so a new database field is not needed. But if stock is an issue, then it will have to be added and populated. Adding the field can be easily done with my "Add More Fields" contribution. Populating it will be up to the shop owner, as with any such field. The same is true for the product category. That option doesn't apply to all shops and can be ignored. But if your shop needs it, then a new field will have to be added and populated. The additional images is optional. I haven't thought it through as to how to code it since there are a number of additional images type addons available and code will have to be added to handle the fields so that this contribution works with all of them.

If you want to edit the file yourself and you don't need the extra database fields, then there are two changes (column heading and column data) that needs to be changed. It is not difficult if you are familiar with making such edits but it isn't something I would go over in a support thread, due to time limits.

Hi, I am trying to install this contribution on osc 2.3.1. In you instructions it is stated:

Upload all of the files in the catalog directory to the correct
location on your server. If you have a 2.3, or above, shop, then
delete the feeders.php file and rename the feeders_2.3_only.php to
feeders.php.

However, the zip contributions file downloaded form
http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/4513
does not include feeders_2.3_only.php file.

I appreciate any help around.
Thanks,
