    totomony Please use version 1.2.5.4 it just works...
    if you want to use 1.2.5.5 then search for a thread on that version if there is not one please start a thread...

    it would be good if it can be done. I can get this done through wordpress however i dont like the overall feel -

    thanks
    There is a crude hack you could use - but it's clunky.

    Set the shop to "Showcase with prices"

    When you add a new product, in the PRODUCT DESCRIPTION FIELD, insert a html link operated with an image button, to re-direct the visitor to your affiliate site:

    eg:
    HTML Code:
    To purchase this product, please click the button:<br />
    <a href="http://www.your-affiliates-site.com/path/to/product"><img src="images/buy_product.jpg"></a>

    hi schoolboy thanks 4 da reply. Plz pardon da spellings-im replying from my phone. Is there a way i could do this by some sort of sql coding? If i will b adding like 500 products then that wud take a long time, i guess it wud b hard as each product would need directing 2 a diff page- i may still give it a shot. Ive been thinking that if i cud do something 2 da data feed b4 uploading it then it may save me much time. Is there any advise u cud give? Also wud u knw if da google froogle mod will work with a showcase store?Thanx

    abs007 To do what you are asking to do is pretty straight forward but it would need coding but not in sql, sql is really only for inserting information into Mysql not manipulating text. The easiest way would be to use OO or Excel and 'concentrate' fields with your data to create the format you need and then import via EP, or look at the Python language which is very easy to learn which would do this very easily.

    Hi scrat
    thanks alot for the reply - wow isnt python big - never done programming before and its gonna be a hard learn. Im just not sure where to start. Ive been reading tutorials and its started to give an introduction to small programming strings and is introducing variables - data - objects and all sorts. Its showed me how to use python to calculate mathematical equations which is great and has also introduced me to javascript and VBScript -

    This is all great but i feel im going down a route which is not needed. Im not sure where what i am actually looking for to add the links to this .csv file. Is there any sort of buzz words that I should be using in my search to find the actual tutorials which i am looking for

    sorry fto be a pain

    I tried the command below, and got a single-word response: "Failed." The table and record names look correct; is the SQL syntax not right?

    Using the Install SQL patch under tools in the admin section we are able to change the show quantity box status. The command is:

    UPDATE products SET products_qty_box_status = '1'

    The '1' turns it on, while '0' would turn it off. I found the info here

    I got a similar response until I put back-quotes around the table and field names:

    UPDATE `products` SET `products_qty_box_status` = '1'

    abs007 |This is getting a little off topic for this thread but,
    basically you will be manipulating text in the description field [ v_products_description_1 ]
    Have a look at the python csv module which will do what you are after to write the file, but you need to learn some basic's of Python, basically "string" manipulating http://www.network-theory.co.uk/docs/pytut/Strings.html

    Some Video tut.
