urgent!!!!!! my website crashed after i installed and uninstalled the extension. It shows 503 error on both frontend and admin page.

Having big problems with this extension. It seems to be more limiting than the previous version.
I'm forced to pick a google product category that doesn't match...Here's an example: I can only pick Clothing amp; Accessories gt; Clothing as the default product category and that is assigned to all products! Thats bad! Before I could place each product in the proper Google category. Also I'm trying to put the majority of my products in Clothing amp; Accessories gt; Clothing Accessories gt; Hair Accessories gt; Hair Extensions. H lt;--- but this option is not available.
Also when I try to map the product type the categories overwrites it. So I'm seeing the product type as Feather Hair Extensions when it should match the google product category of Clothing amp; Accessories gt; Clothing Accessories gt; Hair Accessories gt; Hair Extensions.
AAAAIIIIYEEEEE!!!! You're killing my money!

No problems installing on 1.6.1

I am also getting an error when I try to install this. Even if I try to reinstall it, it tell me:
Fatal error: Call to undefined method Varien_Db_Adapter_Pdo_Mysql::dropIndex() in /home/XXX/app/code/core/Mage/GoogleShopping/sql/googleshopping_setup/mysql4-upgrade-184.108.40.206-220.127.116.11.php on line 70
Could think be a problem with my database setup? I am running magento 1.5

I am also having the "please wait" issue when trying to map attributes after selecting UK, I now have hardly any products in google which is serious, I upgraded from 1.5 to 1.6 to try and resolve but the issue is still there, lots of people are having this problem on other forums, is there a work around for this

Just installed on 1.6 with no issue.
I'm having an issue that I'm seeking help with however: when I attempt to add products to Google Content from the Catalog tab, I get a 500 Internal Server error. Does anyone know how to solve this issue? Site is hosted on a shared server (godaddy), and the site files are in a sub directory of the hosting root. I'm assuming this may be a CHMOD issue.

Installing on .1.5.1 - On Install I got the server error so deleted the maintenance.flag file - however I then just got a blank page in admin and in the store - how would I get these back?
I've uninstalled for now.

On 1.6, I get stuck when I try to map attributes. When I select my country, I get stuck on Please Wait.
I was trying to map attributes after upgrading from 1.5 to 1.6. It would say "Can’t save Attribute Set Mapping.”
I tried deleting the attribute mapping profile I had, and when I try to add a new one, i am stuck on a please wait screen.
What do I have to do to make this work?

This extension would be great except for 2 major complaints that I have:
1. Product Grid for choosing products to add to Google Content lacks filter columns
There is no "Status" column in the grid, so if you have a bunch of disabled products in your store or products that are invisible for some reason, you can't easily filter those out.
2. Google Shopping requires a mandatory "Taxonomy" attribute for US products
All products submitted need to have a Category attribute that contains a value from Google's list of predefined taxonomies. This isn't set by default when adding products through this extension. The workaround is to create a custom attribute called "Google Taxonomy" for your products, then specify this for every product and make sure you add it through the custom attribute mapping before you submit your products.
