    Automatically send data feed to Froogle

    I had this problem too, with the text file not creating but no error message and a link from googlefeeder.php to a non-existent file. I realised I'd put in the full URL of the data_feed.txt file on the top line of the required configuration in the googlefeeder.php ($outfile) rather than the path from googlefeeder.php to the txt file (i.e. I'd put http://www....com/catalog/feeds/data_feed.txt and it should be ../feeds/data_feed.txt). This solved it for me.
  2. Thanks Robert - you're right of course, I've found the problem now with your pointer - it was when I was copying the database to set up a testing version of the shop, the settings I used to export or import it with phpmyadmin were wrong and the characters were question marks in the tables themselves :blush:

    HSBC secure-epayment module

    Hi all, I recently tried to install the HSBC e-payments CPI module and after trying for several days to get it working and finally realising that my hosting company weren't going to allow me to install the necessary files I gave up and used the API module instead. I found this one much easier to install, the contribution from AlexJudd worked without any hitches and I didn't need to re-apply to HSBC or anything, I just called the technical support and they told me where to find the codes etc I needed in the HSBC admin website. I'm far far from an expert php programmer and it's now working well without any problems so far. When I originally read on HSBC's website about the two different methods I thought CPI sounded as though it would be easier to install and use but when I tried it the opposite was the case. Hope this saves some people some time and headaches. :)
  4. Hello all I've installed seo urls v2.6 today and am having a problem in that all of the special characters (like the £ - GB pound sterling symbol) are showing up as ?? (double question mark) across the whole site. I've tried to set the 'output w3c valid urls' to false and reset the cache but it doesn't solve the problem. I've also tried to enter some special character conversions such as £=>£ and £=>£ but it hasn't worked and I can't seem to find any support threads on special character conversions. If anyone can help or point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated. Thanks, Mike

    HSBC secure-epayment module

    Hi, I have a client who has signed up with HSBC and I would appreciate a few quotes from people who know how to install the e-payments module and get it working fairly quickly. I haven't arranged hosting yet but from reading in this forum am thinking webfusion seem to be a good option - I'm open to advice though. Please PM me. Thanks, Mike
