Bali Hai Posted February 3, 2007 Share Posted February 3, 2007 I added the newly required attributes courtesy of the latest update to Googlefeeder 1.03 but I have one problem. It's creating the file just fine, but still not connecting to Google because one of my attributes is blank. Manufacturer. I sell back issues of magazines, so, I don't apply manufacturers names to any of my products. When I look at the .txt file that was generated, the manufacturers field is what is blank, so, my question is: Is there any way to set up a default manufacturer for all my products in that googlefeeder file or am I going to have to create a manufacturer name in Admin and manually edit all 1700 items in my website to include that manufacturer? I know how to do that; I just don't WANT to have to do that. I see there are defaults set up for a lot of things in the feeder file (payment accepted, condition, etc.) but not for manufacturers. Any way to get around that? You can set up a default manufacturer, but it isn't necessary. I don't use the field and the feed works fine. Since these new attributes are required by Google and you have modified the file according to the contribution, you must enable the Advance Optional Values by setting $optional_sec equal to 1. Then, set the things you want to feed equal to 1. Specifically, set $manufacturer equal to 0 (approx. line 47). Hope this helps. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
