    Automatically send data feed to Froogle

    No, but items that get refreshed more frequently get more attention from Google. I wouldn't necessary spam Google with updates, but weekly and after a major update should be sufficent. It should also be more frequent than once a month. -Calvin

    1.21 should be fine. the $Outfile can either be the absolute or relative path of the file.

    it's not browser related. it's a server side issue. it should throw at least an error message if the line is uncommented. check your php debug levels to make sure errors are thrown. To be sure, //ftp_file( $ftp_server, $ftp_user_name, $ftp_user_pass, $source_file, $ftp_directory, $destination_file); is the line.

    There a line you need to uncomment to upload the file to Google. It's in the instructions. Step 7?

    Yes. Take a look at step 7 of the installation instructions. There should be something indicates it has been uploaded to Google. hmm.... try replacing: $catIndex[$row->prodCatID] . "\t" . with: $row->catName . "\t" . Once again, I have not tested it. Let me know if it works. Google also now takes the full category tree. If I remember correctly... that should be the default behavior. It may be comma separated though right now. Cheers, -FlyingMonkey

    It appears to be an issue in the language file. Give this a try and let me know if it worked. (I haven't installed 1.25 or tested the modification), so you'll be the first. Replace /language/english/feeders.php with: <?php /* feeders.php v1.26 2009/01/06 */ define('HEADING_TITLE', 'GoogleBase Feeder System'); define('BODY_TEXT', 'Submit the ' . STORE_NAME . ' Google Base Feed <form method="link" action="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_GOOGLE) . '"><input type="submit" value="Send Feed"></form>'); ?> The other option is always just to use really simple HTML, if the above doesn't work. <?php /* feeders.php v1.26 2009/01/06 */ define('HEADING_TITLE', 'GoogleBase Feeder System'); define('BODY_TEXT', 'Submit the ' . STORE_NAME . ' Google Base Feed <a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_GOOGLE) . '">Send Feed</a>'); ?> -FlyingMonkey

    Try changing the line to products.products_model AS prodModel, Your database may have products_model in more than one table making it "ambiguous". -Calvin

    Double check your database connection. At a minimum, even if the database connection is not set, it will write a line with the headers.

    did you uncomment the FTP line, as per the instructions? ;)
  11. Seems to work also, if I change the line of code in gv_mail.php from: $insert_id = tep_db_insert_id($insert_query); to: $insert_id = tep_db_insert_id(); This also works in coupon_admin.php.... Any ideas why this works? And if the fix is appropriate?
  12. I thought I was going crazy. After installing RC1, I have the same issue. I thought of the temporary fix too, but is there a more permanent fix?

    FTP Permission errors are generally related to the FTP Information you've entered from Google or your host permissions on FTP uploads. Good Luck!

    Yup, it's a replacement to froogle.php. It was renamed to googlefeeder.php when Google combined their feed specifications for Froogle and Google Base. Google actually changed their shopping comparision engine name from "Froogle" to "Google Product Search" a couple of months back; so I'll be renaming the contribution too. Sorry for the lack of updates, I have not had much spare time in the past several months. I took a couple days of vacation this week, so hopefully, I'll get that update I mentioned out. Thanks for your support.

    Not a problem! I mentioned that this may become an issue when I initially released the Google Feeder with their new product type attribute. Here's a fix: Replace: $catIndex[$curID] = $temp . ", " . $catTempDes[$curID]; With: $catIndex[$curID] = $temp; Let me know if that works, I no longer run an osC site. If it does, I'll integrate it into the next release. Thanks!

    You could probably do it through a switch statement, or store the values in an array. so if lbs is less than x use rate a or if it's less than y then use rate b, etc. in my opinion, it'd be nice to figure out a way to select the lowest shipping cost offered by osC by default. anyone have some ideas or have seen it done before? ;)

    Not a problem! I am glad you got the configuration down and can follow directions! ;)

    Default osC special prices work with this contribution. Some users have installed contributions that apply special pricing that is outside of the default osC tables. Only default osC special prices are supported for logistical reasons.

    In Google's Configuation or in the Contribution's Installation Guide? In the Contribution Installation Guide, it's a required step in step 1.

    Please ignore the post above. It is a repost. Don't use v1.03b, it was an unofficial release and uses outdated Google Attributes. By not using 1.03b, it will solve most of your problems. Version 1.20 release in Feburary includes SEO support (just read the release details). It was built to support SEO links from many different types of SEO contributions and not just Chemo's Ultimate SEO. Version 1.20 supports Froogle with SEO links, but may require customization on the user's part to get it initally setup. btw, the default 1.20 SEO links were built with Chemo's Ultimate SEO links in mind, but may take slight modifications depending on your configuration.

    Don't use 1.03b, it was an unofficial release and uses outdated Google attributes settings. Version 1.20 supports Froogle with SEO links, but may require customization on the user's part to get it initally setup. 1.20 is essentially designed with Chemo's Ultimate SEO links in mind.

    It's part of the contribution package, a link is provided somewhere in the 89 pages to the contribution or you could just search for it in the contribution's area. ;)

    The feeder is functioning correctly, but is not writing out the file. Check your feeder and server settings again.

    Check the feeds folder via your ftp for any files created and the date they were created.
