geoffreywalton got a reaction from FrostyFred in Google Base feeds
Google Base Feeds
Google have just announced you have to prove you "own" the url from which a feed comes from.
So have a look at their write up
Whilst I was updating a site I thought a little guide might be of help so here it is.
Steps to carry out before installing the contribution.
1. Register an account in the Google Merchant Centre.
2. "Verify and Claim" your url, as part of this you have to either put a file in the root of your site or add some code to index.php, but just follow the instructions..
3. Add a download and remember the name of the file you used as you need it to add to your .htaccess file during the installation. Note this is where you can set up a schedule of uploads but not yet.
4. Click on Edit next to the name of the the feed. Googlebase, Text, Autodetect, Tab normally works.
6. Click on Settings >> General, now you can enter some basic account information.
Then install the contribution.
Set the parameters to true for any extra fields you want to appear on the feed. There may well be some default values you need to set as well. If you need any of these set "optional_sec" to false if you are not going to use them.
You can see what is "sent" to google by entering www.yoursite.com/googlebase.php
Now go back to the google merchant centre and schedule the upload.
When an upload has happened you should go to http://www.google.com/merchants/merchantdashboard and click on <Datafeeds>.
Click on the name of the feed to see the "Feed Status" and any errors in it.
Click on My Products >> Data Quality to see if there are any other errors.
Hope that helps some of you.

You have probably not made the required changes to /admin/includes/languages/english.php
or you did not put a file into /admin/includes/languages/english
or the contribution is missing a file or steps in the installation instructions.
Read the installation instructions again and check you really did follow all the steps.

It looks like you have not done a couple of steps in the installation instructions.
I would think there are a couple of lines that should have been added to /admin/includes/languages/english.php for
Also one for /admin/includes/filenames.php
Did you put the lines into /includes/languages/english.php?
geoffreywalton got a reaction from FrostyFred in Database update in place? What update?
It looks like you missed out a step to run some sql that inserts/adds this new table.
Reread the installation instructions and find this step.
For more info on how to "run" sql see my profile or google this forum.

If you have followed the installation instruction then step 7 should be followed.
There is a shed load of documentation that answers most questions included with the contribution.
