    Is anyone aware of a primer available on the topic of datafeeds?

    i.e.

    How to use them.
    Tips, tricks, traps, etc.

    Thanks.

    Me too!

    I'm just starting to use datafeeds, and I *know* there's a lot that I don't know and should.

    I bought Charlie a "Database for Dummies" book but it puts him to sleep every time I read it to him. Where is that cheap 1-HB foreign labor when you need it. I know how to create categories and feed a CVS file into Miva.com but it creates a "add to cart" or "buy now" button on each item. Like I need the hassle of passing on the orders to the merchants. Then again I can autoforward the originals and get a carbon of each order so they can't claim a sale wasn't made .....uuuummmm.

    I just started working with my first feed recently. As far as how to get started, I picked up a copy of PHP and MySql Web Development from Amazon. The book has about 800 pages, but the first 250 or so had enough information to work with a feed. If you don’t mind reading stuff online you can always check out the online manuals for PHP and MySQL at http://www.php.net/manual/en/ and http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/index.html(if you want to work with PHP and MySQL as opposed to ASP, ect.). The book has a lot of info in it, but I’ve had to refer to these sites quite a few times to look up a function or two that aren’t listed in the book.
