Automatically send data feed to Froogle

Recommended Posts

I noticed in contribs, Calvin has mentioned a new version 2.0 coming soon? If so, should I wait for it, or go ahead with the current version 1.4 and then upgrade later? Will upgrading be a pain? Should I just wait for 2.0 instead?

 

Thanks! -Chris.

Hi all, I posted a while back about my ftp uploads not working. Odd that froogle was also not listing my feeds as well they said something about products being in the wrong cats. Anyway I still get errors at the end of the ftp, however the ftp file is going to froogle and after weeks of errors on the upload and the feed being rejected they up and listed it the other day with no modifications being made. Odd. At least it is working, thanks for the help all. Cool contrib! :)

Hi Chris,

If your planning on just using Froogle, there aren't any further enhancements in terms of functionality (unless your planning to use it with a store with 5k to over 100k in products). The only benifit that 1.5 will add is an admin panel and 2.0 will make it easier to run mutiple feeds for different services (Froogle, BizRate, Shopping.com, etc). From a user side, v2.0 should be still pretty easy to setup and upgrade to. 2.0 is mainly to help make it easier to fix and update the code for multiple feeders faster and easier.

 

The admin panel in 1.5, will just be an add on. So even if your running v1.0.1, you'll be able to install the admin panel without any complications and your cron entries will still run properly.

 

If your froogle data feeder is working and you don't need the additional features, there's no reason to upgrade. Even if you wanted to upgrade, it's been pretty easy. You just need to copy your configuration settings over (The first chunk of code in froogle.php) into the new file. The only addition is $ftp_directory (which I believe is left blank, will still run fine anyway).

 

-Calvin

He is pretty good about things, if you want to get started, go with the version now.

your best bet is to read the instructions, they are straight forward, install and test.

I agree. If you read the directions and follow them 100%, everything will work.

 

Here's an elaboration of step 5 (included in the updated readme for 1.51 beta):

 

5) Make sure the file is being written properly.

a. To run the feeder point your internet browser to http://www.yourwebsite.com/admin/froogle.php

b. Then point your browser to http://www.yourwebsite.com/feeds/your-fr-outfile.txt to check the feed.

I use some version (probably 1.4) of froogle feeder on my http://smokingplaza.com and like it very much! :) It automated tuning my feeds a lot

 

I am impressed by the description of v2.0. Actually before reading this thread I thought of froogle as of the first powerful and popular shopping search engine.

One question: currently contributions section shows version 1.44 being the latest, while you are talking about betas later than 1.5 already.

What is the place to download latest stable version?

using iis6 should be no problem, as long as you have things setup properly. the tables/product description that is another story tho, if you can export that normally or via easypopulate, should work here too.

Hey All,

 

I just installed this, and it's creating the file - sorta, but I'm having a problem.

I don't know if this is related, but it also seems to be truncating the file and stopping at a point mid-product.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks,

what code is at those respective liness?

 

There's a LOT of code at those lines, which would take me FOREVER to go through and copy and paste each line.

 

I suspect something is happening early on to cause this.

 

 

 

which version?

 

The one on the contrib - 1.44

most of the lines point to only a few errors. you asked for help. for us to help you, why not post just a few of the lines. i would suspect it is a configuration issue, as i just installed that version last night on a different customer site and it worked fine.

1.44 doesn't have any... known bugs if run as is. it's very possible though, like what mibble said could you copy and paste a couple of those lines of code and the configuration portion of the feeder?


Most likely your question has been answered, please do a search first.

Not sure if I missed this but - I didnt see it...

 

Can someone tell me how to ftp up multiple txt files to froogle?

 

I have multiple stores and I want to set it up so the cron will generate the file and then the following day will ftp.

 

So I need something like:

 

// upload the file
$upload = ftp_put($conn_id, $destination_file, /FOLDER_CONTENTS/, FTP_BINARY);

 

 

Any suggestions?

 

ALl sites will be in one folder but will have different names like:

 

froogle1.txt

froogle2.txt and so on

there is a section on cron about 10 or so pages back, it is also in tips and tricks, on how to set them up.

 

you will need to have froogle installed in each store, then call up froogle via each line in cron

Hi,

 

I know I am going to really appreciate this contribution once I get it all running o.k.

 

Just a few questions -

 

I think I have everything all set up properly -

 

My questions are:-

 

Question 1. When it is running correctly - am I right to assume that when you run the query in your browser to check the outfile.txt that the file will be blank? And that my feeds/scrapboxx_au.txt file size will be '0 bytes'?

 

Question 2. I know I have to do step 6. Can I please clarify what "Uncomment Block" means??? - is it just deleting the */ before the code starts? fyi my //start FTP to Froogle starts at line 316 and ends at line 372.

 

Question 3. If I don't insert the cron Entry - will it send monthly uploads by default. Or do I have to install the Cron Entry to have it upload anything? and

 

Question 4 - to install it is it just a matter of putting this line of code - "0 4 * * 3 /usr/bin/php -q /home/<unix route" anywhere in my admin/froogle.php directory?

 

Question 5. Should the *outfile.txt be outside of your admin directory if it is password protected I currently have it in my admin - will thise cause problems at all that you are aware of?

 

Question 6. Is there anything else I have to do - I have my Froogle Merchant all set up and have already done one manual ftp from Easy Populate to test it and all seems to be ok - for my monthly automated uploads do I need to run a script or something else - do I need to set it to run from my cpanel - there are a few references to doing this in this list - but not sure if this new version eliminates the need to do any further setup outside - please advise.

 

Question 7. How will I know that it is uploading?

 

Sorry if my questions are basic - I know the instrucitons are written really well - but for complete newbies/dumbies (like me) - a little more explanation is sometimes required.

 

 

thanks and I look forward to getting this fully functioning - regards,

 

Maria

1. you can open the txt file to see what is in there. in fact in the instructions it is recommended you do so to verify the data is correct.

2. Standard code uncommenting.

3. no cron, no monthly upload. you have to do it manually

4. for cron, you need to know if you are using cgi or windows. that is explained in detail in the cron instructions i put together.

5. instructions state to put the file OUTSIDE the admin. if inside then nothing happens with the file, as it is behind a passworded side. who cares if customers see the file. isnt that what you want them to find on froogle?

6. the easypopulate froogle has not been updated to the froogle specifications. i know, because i have not uploaded that portion yet.

the ep froogle you have to manually adjust things (least for a few more weeks)

 

read the instructions, trust in them. if you have problems understanding things, use search, it works well. also cron jobs you need to understand those.
