I did upgrade to the latest version (1.12.5). And I did get my feeds working.
If you wish for folks to stop posting in here, perhaps you should consider asking someone in ZC management to
CHANGE THE SUPPORT LINK
ON THE OFFICIAL ADDON
Just a thought.
In case you are curious why people keep stumbling into this thread, take a gander a the OFFICIAL SUPPORT LINK provided on the addon page for Version 1.12.4 (the current version of Google Base Feeder):
Hugs and kisses,
For any other poor sap who stumbles in here and doesn't want to get screamed at, I scrolled back 6 or 7 pages to find a link.
Here is the new support link:
The way the free add-on section works currently, it's not super easy to get the description modified if one is not submitting a new version of the add-on.. The move to a NEW clean support thread happened AFTER a community member took the time to post the Numinix version in the free downloads, and the mod submission was done by a different person than the one rightly created a new support thread (given that Google had changed it's submission requirements sooo much)..
HENCE the reason the (not so subtle/gentle) reminder messages are being posted here..
What REALLY needs to happen in addition to your suggestion is that this thread should be locked and closed..
Now when any of us who so decides to volunteer to do so has time to contact and work with the admins regarding BOTH of these excellent suggestions:
the beatings will continue..
PM one of the admins and request a thread lock. That should help!
v1.10.2 still works, as well as it ever did.
With Version 1.12.0's thread already up to 35 pages since November 2011, I am ok with staying with v1.10.2 for a few reasons.
The main one being that I would like to provide myself with more than just the default product category, and not have to deal with debugging what certainly appears to me to be a beta release.
v1.10.2 is as beta as I need the module to be.
So I vote for leaving this thread open.
With regards to this module, you do realize that Google changed their feed requirements, and this is why the module has been updated.. Eventually your feeds will stop working as well unless you've modified the version you are using to submit the information based on Google's current requirements..
For these reasons, I agree that the support thread for this version really should be closed..
AND for all the people suggesting closing this thread, ANY ONE OF YOU could contact the admins too and make the request (versus waiting for the mysterious "someone else" to do it -- just saying..)

The irony that strikes me here is that we are talking about a module that deals with product taxonomy, and the forum>thread>post structure is demonstrably inadequate for every issue presented for the google feeder module having to be stuffed into one thread.
I think the google feeder module needs its own forum where the separate issues can be organized by thread, and a step in that direction is to at least have separate threads for separate versions.
Believe it or not, some of us don't wait for the mysterious "someone else" to fix everything. We take the code, look at what it needs to do, look at what it does and how it does it, and then we (shhh -secret here) hack it. whoknew?
I am having some issues with the ver.1.13 google feeder.
Here is what I have done so far:
Fresh Install of ZC 1.5
aBagon template installed for ZC 1.5
installed ceon_uri_mapping_seo_4-0-7 module.
Created one test product
installed: Google Merchant Center Feeder 1.13.0
The installation went without problems and then I copied the content from install.sql and pasted into the admin/tools/instal SQL Patches.
After I configured the module, and when I generated the xml here is what I get:
Google Merchant Center Feeder v started 2012/02/23 21:01:15
Feed file - /home/...../rcsquad_products_en_5.xml
Processing: Feed - Yes, Upload - No
Google Merchant Center File Complete In 0.030815 Seconds 0 of 1 Records
It seems it knows that there is one product but it does not include it.
Any help is truly appreciated since I spent hours and hours on this.
