Home: Products: Plugins: Gossamer Links Plugins: Paid Plugins: 2.2.x Version: CustomDataImportGen
This plugin is one of a kind. A plugin, that generates custom scripts, to import pretty much any comma, pipe, tab or colon delimited data file. With full support for remote file grabbing, this plugin is great for anyone trying to run an online shopping portal, with products from other "product feeds".
- LinksSQL 2.2.0+
- A source URL or product file, which you want to import.
- SSH/Telnet access (or the ability to run custom scripts via Crontab)
- Simple GUI via the admin panel, to generate new scripts (by clicking on "Setup New Import Script"). From here, you can set your custom options.
- Ability to build up the category structure, with an optional "leading" category (i.e if you want to order the products from a specific datafeed into one category, then you can do this). You can also build the category name from UP-TO 5 other fields from your datafile (i.e level1,level2,level3,etc).
- You feed in a sample line (normally the first line of the file, which looks like TITLE|URL|DESCRIPTION|PRICE, or similar). The plugin then does all the work, and "slices and dices" the data for you, giving it to you in a more visually appealing interface.
- Ability to add in an "auto-grab" call into the script, which grabs the latest datafeed from the appropriate URL (you must be able to do this normally, i.e without having to log in... otherwise the file can't be grabbed correctly).
- "Replacements" option, which gives you the power to change parts of a category name, i.e Appple|Apple .. which would replace occurrences of Appple, with Apple.
- Folder organized (so you don't have a ton of files in your 'admin' folder.
- "Default" field value options (as many as you require)
- easy to remove leading " and ' from values (option)
- easy to remove leading HTML tags from values (option), such as <b>something</b> would be changed to something.
- Emails you when a datafeed file can not be grabbed (with details on the scripts location, along with the URL it was trying to grab)
- And more!
- Support for .zip/.gz datafiles, with automatic decompression.
