speedingorange thank you for your reply. No I guess I haven't done that. Is there a thread or post somewhere that instructs on how to do that?

Did you have the RSS feed running before on a previous installation?

Its really simple anyhow,

Open the RSS file from the FTP side, or on your desktop.

there is a section at the top saying " configuration"

Just set the details as necessary,

the taxanomy one needs you to get the category for your store from this page http://www.google.com/basepages/product ... xonomy.txt

Dont forget, if you use a catagory with an & sybol, change it to &

Once everything is set, just upload it to your server :D

If you need anything ells just ask :)

No I didn't do all that I just had the basic plain google base feed module--copy the feed URL, paste into a browser, save that to a file on my desktop and then upload that using google merchant center.

And that's the problem, I can't open the RSS file to look at it. I get an error.

No, that's my fault. This was the closest thread I could find so that's why I posted here. I do appreciate your help, though. I hope I can find the answer soon, I'm dead in the water until I do unfortunately.

I suppose I could but...I just wonder why the module that was working just fine in earlier versions all of a sudden doesn't appear to be working.

Is there a way to downgrade and go back to an earlier version?

Well this thread was really meant for my RSS Google Base mod. If you are asking about the google base feed in the core, that hasn't changed. And since when has "But I can't seem to get my xxxxxxxx to work" ever helped anyone? how about some details of the problem.

Well, I beg to differ. I most certainly did give details, my feed now produces a 'white space' problem. I upgraded to 1.47 and the non-RSS feed that I was using does not work. I put the URL of my feed into my browser (I did state this earlier) and it CAN'T BE READ. Here, see if you can read it:

http://daysgonebyantiquesandcollectible ... oogle_base

The item in question has been in my inventory for a LONG time. The feed I was using before the upgrade did not produce this error. Now it does.

not sure where this all stands, but the problem with that feed appears to be that it does not convert & & in the title section.

No. The problem appears to be that you have whitespace here:
<g:mpn> </g:mpn>

Which means that you are just entering spaces for your model numbers

If you are going to do that then you need to make this change:

1. EDIT: catalog/controller/feed/google_base.php

2. FIND:

Code: Select all

$output .= '<g:mpn>' . $product['model'] . '</g:mpn>';
3. REPLACE WITH:

Code: Select all

$output .= '<g:mpn>' . trim($product['model']) . '</g:mpn>';
Tho that might only trim the spaces on the outside, maybe try
str_replace(' ', '', $product['model']) instead if trim doesn't work completely.

Hi Q,

I have installed Google Base but it doesn't show the Taxes even if i set:
$useTax = true; //Show Prices with Tax

The price is showed with tax if i add tax in title, but not in the price tag. There it's still without taxes.

Thanks for your support!

I am currently having a slight issue with the RSS + Google base mod.

Everything is working fine part from an issue coming up in the ‘data quality’ tab of the google merchant centre.
It says I have missing identifiers on 100% of my products.
On the google listings the BRAND is showing correct, the info I have in the OC ‘Model’ is showing up in the Mpn field (I guess this is correct also).

I cant see what is making them say the identifiers are missing. Any ideas?

Any help appreciated

Just to say, I had Q's original RSS MOD installed on a 1.3.4 site a while back & hadn't checked it for a while, only to find it was now malfunctioning. I downloaded the most recent updated file @Q's site & now all appears to be working fine again ;)

Can only imagine part of the new code is more compatible with possible changes over @Google.
