| Our Froogle Feed File Creator (FFFC) for VP-ASP sites has now had various enhancements added to it, which will hopefully make it even more useful and easy to use for vp-asp users.
You can view more details about it, and/or purchase it through:
also, if you like this, you might also like the packing-slip/invoice add-on too:
The enhancements that have now been applied to the FFFC are:
1. Now available for vp-asp v4.5
The FFFC was previously only available for vp-asp v5 sites, but it now comes with 2 sets of files included; one set for v5, and another set for v4.5. This means that if you're on v4.5 then it'll work, and when you go onto vp-asp v5 you can simply upload the v5 FFFC files without having to ask us for a separate/new version.
2. Full Pathnames for Image Files
Some retailers use full pathnames for their image files (for example, if distributing the product images across different sites/areas). The FFFC has been changed to allow for this as you can now leave the image-directory config options blank and it'll use the image-file-name as the full path instead of putting your site's url at the front of the path.
3. InStock field
The additional froogle field for "Instock" (Y/N) has now been added to the feed, and you can change your configuration to default this to Yes-only, Yes-And-No, or Don't-Print-Instock-Field; see the config files for more info.
4. UPC Field
The additional froogle field for "UPC" (Universal Product Code) has now been added to the feed, and you can change your configuration to use whichever of your product columns you are using to store your UPC. Like the InStock field, this is optional and if you leave your UPC config setting blank then the UPC won't be shown on the feed file.
If you find that you need to customise the FFFC programmatically (ie not just changing the config options, but changing the actual programs), then please let us know as we may apply such customisations to our generic FFFC for you and then give you a free update, as per the above 4 new options that have all been added by us thanks to feedback that we've received from customers.
A big thanks to all of our customers who have given us feedback so that we could improve the FFFC for the whole vp-asp community - such feedback is always welcome and is always seriously considered/applied, as you can see by this new update.
If you have any problems, questions, or feedback regarding the FFFC, please feel free to email us at: [email protected]
