    Default Google Product Search Feeder II [Support Thread]

    This is the support thread for the to-be-released shortly Google Product Search Feeder II (aka GPSF-2) plugin.

    The plugin has been tested on zc156b through zc158a on PHP versions 7.0 through 8.2 and replaces

    - Google Merchant Center Feeder: https://www.zen-cart.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=1375
    - Google Froogle: https://www.zen-cart.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=319

    I'll post the download link once it's available.

    ZC v1.5.8a
    PHP 8.0
    GPSF v1.0.0
    New install, not converting from a previous version.

    Admin > Tools > Google Product Search Feeder II

    Generate Feed gives 'Request failed, Gone (410).'

    If I remove the currency_code portion from the GET request URL

    HTML Code:
    mydomain.co.uk/gpsf_main_controller.php?key=&feed=fy_un_tp&limit=0&offset=0&currency_code=GBP&language_id=1
    to

    Code:
    mydomain.co.uk/gpsf_main_controller.php?key=&feed=fy_un_tp&limit=0&offset=0&language_id=1
    The feed is successfully generated, with the currency included together with the price:

    HTML Code:
    <g:price>2.75 GBP</g:price>
    I gather that this is correct from Google's point of view and wonder if the '&currency_code=GBP' in the GET request is actually needed.

    I might have overthought all of this and there may exist a simple solution.

    Edit: this is on a local dev server (WAMP) with self-signed SSL

    Any logs generated? If the $_GET['currency_code'] is set, the processing looks for that in the currencies class.

    No logs, I'll delve deeper.

    Some plonker(me) had added a currency redirect to 410 in .htaccess - when its contents were brought in from another site. All's working now.

    These PHP extension classes are new to me, but as I wanted to create a custom product_type (I used 666 as a test) for category 66 I used this code in a new classes file (includes/classes/gpsf/gpsfKb.php):

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    /**
     */
    class gpsfKb extends gpsfBase
    {
        public function 
    getProductsAttributes(string $products_id, array $product, array $categories_list$cPath '66', array $custom_fields): array
        {
            
    $extension_custom_fields = ['product_type' => '666',];

            return 
    $extension_custom_fields;
        }
    }
    This works in that it adds the product_type to the feed,
    Code:
    <g:product_type>666</g:product_type>
    <g:product_type><![CDATA[Gift Vouchers]]></g:product_type>
    I would appreciate some guidance on the code changes needed to replace the already generated product_type rather than add a new one.

    I think that this plugin's 'site-specific additions to a product feed' is going to be a stretch for most non-coders, like me, so hopefully this example will get the ball rolling.

    Actually, what I've done hasn't worked as it adds the '666' to all products. Back to the drawing board.

    At this point, the gpsfFeedGenerator class doesn't acknowledge an override for the product_type, using either a fixed value or a selection from the product's master-category's name 'tree'. I've created a change-request (https://github.com/lat9/gpsf/issues/11) on the GPSF GitHub repository.
