    The next allposters.pl release is planned for early March (allposters.pl releases are planned for every 3 months, depending upon my workload).

    Is the need for a release based on the datafeed availability? Wasn't there talk of making the datafeed we can download from allposters work? That way we could not only update when we want, we could use only the sections we want.

    The next allposters.pl release will contain new data as well as a few bug fixes. Using the AllPosters.com datafeed is a future feature on the wish list. The last time I looked at it, the AllPosters.com datafeed does not have all the necessary data that the script requires.

    You can select/delete categories with the current version of the allposters.pl script.

    Hope so, lots of my products are going to pages stating the poster isn't available anymore

    It used to update every 2 months, now it seems it updates every 3

    That's a long time between updating several domains.

    If anyone from allposters reads these posts, how about working with David to produce a feed that would allow us to update any time a new feed is ready? I'd update weekly if possible and I'm sure many others would as well. More products and less, that item is no longer available, leads to more sales for everyone.

    I just found out today about a beta script
    someone has created for Allposters:

    [URL Removed]

    The script uses mysql and php, and you can
    transfer and unzip the files from the admin
    area of the script, and you can set up cron to
    do it automatically. An example of the script:

    [URL Removed]

    They can update the script whenever they want to
    from within the admin area. Would something
    like this be possible to do with this script?

    You can visit their forum for more info:
    [URL Removed]

    I don't want to change scripts, but would like
    to be able to update the database when I want
    to, instead of showing a 'Prices as of' date
    that is two to three months old.

    [Removed URLs because Wayne later said, "I would delete the URL's in my post if I could,
    but I am unable to edit it." --Leader]

    Do you think it's right to advertise another script in Cusimanos forum?!

    Actually, I almost didn't post this because I
    figured someone would reply like you did. I am
    not trying to get anyone to change, and I don't
    want to change myself. The person that posted
    before me suggested that we should work with
    David with any ideas on how to make this
    script self-updating. I heard about this script
    from another forum and thought maybe it would
    help with ideas on how to do this. You're always
    the first one to post about when is the next
    update going to be available.

    After thinking about this some more, you are
    right. I should have just sent this information
    to David by private email, and not posted the
    info about the other script in this forum. I
    am sorry.
    I would delete the URL's in my post if I could,
    but I am unable to edit it. The other person has
    made his beta script free for other's to test,
    so I wasn't giving out any information that I
    wasn't allowed to.

    Yeah I am, but this IS Cusimano's forum and I believe the other guy wants sub's for his script too. I just thought it was inappropriate. No hard feelings, I'm sure David will simply delete the URLs when he sees them. But then it's likely his script is superior in other ways and he won't care.

    The script is in beta now, and he is allowing
    anyone to test it free without signing up under
    him. But after he makes improvements and it
    goes out of beta, then he has stated that it
    will be required to join under him. I don't
    know a lot about scripts, and just thought that
    maybe this would give David an idea that he
    hadn't thought of before so we could update the
    scripts ourselves. You are right though, I
    shouldn't have posted these URLs in David's
    forum, and hope he removes them. I like David's
    scripts and have no intention of switching to
    this other one.

    Wayne, Since you have stated that you wanted that change made, and I agree that they shouldn't have been posted here, I have removed the URLs from the original post.
