I just discovered that Shopmania is providing a free download script for Magento stores.  The file is named DATAFEED_shopmania_magento.php.  However, it comes with no instructions, extension keys, or anything.  Has anyone used this?  Does it work?  How do you install it?  Any special configuration issues (such as product categories)?

As far as I know, youre supposed to just put that file in your root directory and just call up the url like this…

http://www.yourwebsite.com/datafeed_shopmania_magento.php

The script that shopmania provides doesn’t seem to work for me....it crashes the browser.

So I tried installing the extension here…
http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/Voicu/extension/1876/shopmania#overview

then went to the url
http://www.yourwebsite.com/datafeed_shopmania

and that crashed the browser aswell…

Shopmania still lists all my products though which is weird....however, I changed the script a bit to grab my short_description rather than my normal description but it still grabs my normal descriptions. So this would mean that they have somehow grabbed all the products without using the script...odd

Thats all I can tell ya really...let me know if you figure it out

I have added this extension but it doesn’t work. I get a 404 error when I try to go to http://www.mywebsite.com/datafeed_shopmania

Anyone know of any other steps that I had to do? I installed the extension using Magento Connect.

Thanks,

Iain
