    (I posted this in the Datafeed Forum. I tried to search for an answer to this in this Forum but could not find one, so I am reposting here)

    Started tinkering with WebMerge and now I am trying to specify the image location. The trouble is, the particular feed I am working with does not contain the whole URL but only the file name. How do I specify the [WM-IMAGEPATH: ?] when my field does not contain the entire URL (eg. htttp://merchant/images/234.jpg) but only the last part of the URL (eg. 234.jpg) ?

    Perhaps I am supposed to modify this column of data? What spread sheet does this? mine doesn't.

    Thanks to anybody that can help!

    Cheeshead and Wisconsin, I'll bet that equals the Packers!

    Okay, on to business. I would put the URL path to the images in the template, and insert the WM-tag in the code like this:

    <img src="htttp://merchant/images/[WM-Field: category_with_filenames]">

    So what gets written to each file will look like this:

    <img src="htttp://merchant/images/234.jpg">

    Have a good evening.

    Or you could use the "Prepend Image Path" option (see the Generation tab in the program).

    I purchased WebMerge this morning and got 2 confirmation emails but no Registration Key. How long does it take for the key to be sent?

    I've received all of your requests for this in all of the various forms you've sent them. I've tried to reply to each, but in case they do not reach you I'll reply to your latest here:

    I sent your registration code later this morning. While it normally takes less than an hour for the store to notify me and for me to generate and send the registration key, in this case it took a few more. My apologies.

    Your enthusiasm for getting going with the product is rewarding. Thank you for choosing WebMerge.
