This is a nice way to export to google base, but manually editing can be time consuming when you have many products. An automated system would be nice that incorporates a ftp protocol using a scheduling, maybe through cron.
@jan212 - you had mentioned a commercial version. Will this have ftp abilities to upload directly to google and be configurable in the admin?
It should be easy. I’ve set up a profile for export which meets the Google Base requirements in every way, except for the link and image_link attributes which only show the relative url and not the full path, if somebody knows how to export the full path then the whole thing’s achievable.
@Dunc - Thank you very much for sharing your profile. That is something we can use for the time being.
We came from a shop that allowed you to ftp the exported file with a single click to Google Base.
Very interested in seeing an ftp mod that can be set to upload at an admin set time schedule.
I know Google Base excepts scheduling of downloading the feed but it is limited to 15mb or less.
So for shops that don’t have a 15mb file you “could” set a different location that google base scheduler can grab the file automatically. That is once we figure out how to get the skin url into the path of the images.
