    Hello,

    I am setting up a website that will use product feeds from linkshare, cj.com and befree networks at the moment. Can anyone show me their backend admin section on how they get the products to display on their web site for differant categories. Is there a software you use? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    There are a couple of ways to do this. If you are familiar with writing/using code, then PHP, Perl, or ASP might be the answer in order to build categories and pages.

    There is another tool called WebMerge that builds pages from data feeds, that you might also want to take a look at.

    The link in my signature will take you to a site that describes what a data feed is, and how you might use it to set up at site.

    If you have any programming background, then PHP is great. There is even a builtin function "fgetcsv" that will do all the hard work of parsing the csv data. I have parsed csv files by hand by writing custom code in other languages but "fgetcsv" almost makes it a pleasure

    Hi. LinksSQL should be able to do it (a couple of people from this board have done this already). You could use LinksSQL and Data_Import, which lets you import data from quite a few merchents. I've setup a page to give details on how easy it is to setup LinksSQL to act as a DataFeed manager;

    Its not a major documentation form, but more of a simple guideline of how to do it.

    There are a few threads about using LinksSQL as a datafeed manager in this forum. One of them is;
