Hello, I installed this module on Magento 1.8 and do not get product specifications anymore. Will this be fixed for this version? Thanks in advance, Best regards, Dennis
Asked by: dennisdc
In reply to myself, i fixed this by doing the following: find this file after installing: frontend/default/default/template/iceshop/icecatlive/groupattributes.phtml and place it in this folder and rename it: frontend/TEMPL/TEMPL/template/catalog/product/view/attributes.phtml

Why product images don't show up in products listing?

The images are correctly loaded in product detail page but in products listing not. Thank you
Asked by: AnDreamweaver
You need to run cron. The documentation for this appears to have been lost with the recent change to these pages. Perhaps somebody can post a link to the installation instructions?

Config settings

At the backend i need to choose the Ean Code and MPN form dropdown but there are no Ean Code and MPN in dropdown anyone an idea? thx
Asked by: wais
Dear wais, You should select attributes where you have brand name, mpn OR ean of product. It's required to get products data into your shop. Also please have a look at the manual: https://www.iceshop.biz/data/downloads/IcecatLive_V1.6.pdf tnx, Maxim.

Is there an updated version of the installation manual available?

I'm installing the latest version because the previous one didn't work on my store (I'm using Mangento 1.8 CE). At stage 11 of the installation manual it says to edit the config.xml file located at <magento_store>/app/code/local/Bintime/Icecatimport/etc/config.xml but this has now moved location. Do I still need to edit this file and update the cron schedule manually or has that been done away with? Thanks, Sean Update: I've just configured the module without the editing the config.xml but when I click the "Import" button in the store admin panel I just get the "please wait" icon and nothing happens. Any help or advice is much appreciated.
Asked by: Anonymous
Hello Sean, Sorry, for the delay to respond for your question. You no need to edit config.xml it's for older version. Please check all configuration, and correct added your site IP, in your icecat account. If it didn't help, please contact our support department. Regards, ICEshop Team

Using Default Magento Cross Sells

Hi, I installed this module, and after much fiddling about I managed to get it working. Thing is, now no cross sells or related products show on product pages that use a spec retrieved from IceCat. Is this normal? Is there any way around it? thanks in advance.
Asked by: baronvonrolo
Hello! Icecat module has related products functionality. It displays only those related products from icecat.biz, that were added to your webshop or your products, that were added to Related products when editing your product in admin. Best regards, Iceshop Team

Hi, how can i choose which fileds to import from Icecat and the matching between icecat catalog and the attributes in the shop?

IcecatLive 1.2.0 (stable) Current problem: product "description" gets overwritten with product "product family" when the update from icecat is performed, yielding useless names to the products.
Asked by: Anonymous
Dear Anonymous, Icecat LIVE 1.5 have settings where you can select which fields you want import from Icecat but unfortunately there no mapping for fields for now If you have any suggestions/problems feel free to email us. Best Regards, Iceshop team.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Excellent! My site basically couldn't operate without this extension. It saves me countless hours manually researching and populating product data and images. I did have a few issues getting it installed properly and anyone thinking of adding it to their site should be aware that it is quite resource heavy and will almost definitely require a VPS host or one with no limits on mySQL queries and import timeouts. I also needed a developer to configure it properly with my custom theme but it's all been worth it now that everything is running smoothly. Otto, Maxim & Vitaly provided a lot of support during the whole process.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WOW - Just a little fix and i will give five stars for this module Icecat Live V1.6 this version seems to work pretty great also with my own template but the only error is that the product specifications are not shown only in magento default template but if i go back to version V1.4 it works so there must be an error getting it to work with other templates in V1.6 In V1.5 this problem was there too but there it was the description and short description that was gone. Also Related products are not showed in my own template this also have worked in an earlier version but i am not sure which one it was. You can see my site here and try to click the "Specifikationer" tab http://www.coolcomputer.dk/hp-deskjet-2542-all-in-one-wifi.html

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Working for V1.5 -> have to go back V1.5 I am a ICECAT full Catalog Subscriber. I know it is difficult to developer an extension like this. The V1.5 do not work out with following methods and result with following symptoms: 1. Upgrade from V1.4 -> V1.5 in magento connect Result: The ICECAT Live config page in admin become blank. And no icecat function working in frontend (no icecat image, and product information) Of course, I clean out cache, refresh xml.config........ 2. Delete the V1.5 and install V1.5 again. Result: The ICECAT Live config page in admin become blank. And no icecat function working in frontend (no icecat image, and product information) Of course, I clean out cache, refresh xml.config........ 3. Delete the V1.5 and install V1.4 again Everything is working normal back again. Let me share my experience with ICECAT: If you find yourself long loading time: 1. ICECAT server is working mateniance, try later to see if any improvement. 2. I import all ICE product photo and store in Database. It will help to reduce page load time. If you find yourself load time above 6 second, you should, try to disable icecat to see if it is related to icecat or You can import product photo and loaded to your Database. (this work for me fine) I hope ICECAT keep improve with this extension........

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great module! (Seems to work ok now) In older versions, (v1.2, v1.3 ) we had the problem that images were not showing up correctly on the category details page. I addressed this issue with the development team in April and since then we have been working together on improving the overall Icecat live module to give a better end user experience. !!!A really big thanks goes to Maxim Baybakov from who has put a lot of effort in improving the Icecat module based on our feedback, adding great new useful features like: - Added new setting Product Priority - display or hide products not from icecat - Added new setting Short Description Priority (Icecat/Own DB) - Added new setting Product Images Priority (Icecat/Own DB) We have tested the 1.3, 1.4 module on different sites and the image problem seems gone. We will soon test 1.5 test all new features and post our feedbacks. All in all, I can highly recommend this module! PS: If you are looking for a good data import platform you might want to check out the Magento Live-Sync import platform. This new import platform can be perfectly used with the Icecat Live module for automated data imports and Icecat data coming in via the Icecat Live module! Paul. www.magdeveloper.com

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performance issues The extension is definitely better, but without performance increases it can't realistically be used on a live environment. With this extension enabled it is adding 12+ seconds to the load time of each page. This is really bad for user experience and seo.
