    I prefer just commenting out with <!-- --> than removing any code.
    Removing may result in mis-alignment.

    Elegant, Will what you typed comment it out the way you typed it or do I need to know something else? I suppose I could always just remove it from the template but I try to avoid deleting lines.

    Comment it out on the template:
    example:
    <td><div class="item"><strong><!--[product_extrafield1] --> </strong><!-- [extra_field_1] --> </div></td>

    Now that would be GREAT!

    Say aren't the extra fields just a simplified way to do a template include?

    You know you can hard code store language to cut down on references and use those fields (vertically unlimited)

    But yes I agree. How many clients need to express that they have used up there extra fields before that need is addressed?

    My only concern is availability for wish list and sale_price_effective_date.

    The availability field will accept only the following entries:
    • in stock
    • out of stock
    • available for order
    • preorder

    3dcart does not support this but can be done manually using:
    Field = constant
    Alias = availability
    Prefix = in stock
    This will be displayed for all products

    the sale price effective date needs to be in the following format:
    2011-03-01T13:00:00Z/2011-03-11T15:30:00Z
    3dcart does not support this but can be done manually using:
    Field = extra_field_?
    Alias = sale_price_effective_date

    Download products and or cats on sale input date in said field

    Hope this helps
    Of course with all the extra run around you will need to update the sale dates just before the 30 days if you have your account set to expire at the maximum of 30 days. Haven't heard a thing about the promise of google going auto on 3dcart. Auto will still be good for newly listed products.
    Again hope this helps.

    Doesn't look like no big deal to me and pretty easy to implement.

    They have said for a while this will be added, but not as of yet. However 3dcart is so great with other things like support I really do not worry about it that much.

    You really don't want to have this automated. There's a lot of great help here if you need to get it setup and running. As was mentioned above once it's running - it's running. And we do use the same file for other shopping sites.

    John,

    Thank you for your offer of assistance. It was nice working with you and knowing others are willing to offer their expertise.

    Hopefully one of these days our "Generate Feed" will populate and export properly. I'd hate to pay $50. a month for this service. I doubt 3d-CS will offer their expertise as to why it's not populating correctly, I will try them next week.

    Cheers,
    Jeff

    For us there is

    For us yes but I think that it depends on what you sell. The title and description (or whatever you choose to use for a short description) is to Google Merchant Center what SEO is to your meta tags.

    Since search in GMC is based upon the title and description we've modified ours to include terms most folks use when looking for photographs, posters or pictures. I don't like how it reads at all but our traffic has gone way up from GMC. So we put the words Photo or Print or Poster in our title and desc. Its SEO for GMC really...

    Great question.
