    My DataFeed Scripts Mix N Match
    Hi all

    Okay I've done preliminary testing and it seems to work okay currently features AMWSO merchants :

    Introducing the MixNMatch merchants and categories...features :

    1. allows you to choose the merchants to feature on your site AND allows you to pick only the categories from those merchants that you want
    2. a Synonym tool (separate) which allows you to perform a search and replace so that the datafeeds will be unique to your site
    3. shuffles the products for you so that the sequence of the products displayed will vary with each download
    4. plugs keywords into the metas dynamically
    5. is pretty plain so you can alter the fonts, colors and number of products to display so that it can merge seamlessly with your site template
    6. is Server Side in php - ie NOT Javascript so Search Engines will be able to read your pages and index them
    7. has built in search function that will allow your visitors to search your database to find products they are interested in
    8. choose between plain php or with mod-rewrites.

    how it looks - straight after the download (I've picked 3 merchants to showcase - I've also limited the categories I want to display in all 3 merchants)- click here - then I went to my own site template (you can have your own of course) - put the scripts into the template and voila (this is the version with mod rewrites).

    There's an online tutorial to help you set it up but if you hit any problems let me know - I've tested it as much as I could but inevitably there's always bugs...

    This is it - datafeed mixnmatch

    cheers,
    Oscar

    Awsome tool Oscar.

    Did notice :
    # Emitations Final Sale Items. Save up to 80%!
    Starts : 10/05/2005
    Ends : 12/31/2050
    Does that offer really end in 2050?

    That'd be an error on the Emitation Coupon feed not on the script

    I think that's just one of those 'never ending' sale coupons...guess I could code it in so that if the coupons last more than a year that the end date isn't displayed or that it only lasts till end of that particular month...to give it some sense of 'urgency'.

    merchants can be sticklers for representing the details as they intended - i'd suggest you pass on showing a perpetual offer expiring monthly to create urgency - if an aff using the feed wants to do this, fine, they can discuss with the merchant. but as a third party< i'd say you should either stick to what they issued or go back to the merchant and suggest a change be made by them. taking the liberty to alter their published deal makes sense to me, but I can imagine a merchant possibly getting torqued. And they're marketers - they know how to create a sense of urgency - and they chose not to... stick with what they put out... or consult with them....

    I think this is really just a data entry error, I'll have it checked Monday, but Donuts idea is a good one for those long term coupons that fail to spawn urgency.

    Cheers

    Chris / Oscar - I was reviewing the scripts Oscar is making for AMWSO and came across the section Oscar has set up to test your host for parsing and modrewrite - Oscar's page here:
    http://mydatafeedscripts.com/phpparse/

    I work primarily with 2 hosting companies and neither passed both tests! Strange coincidence finding your test section here - I have a new site planned and need both parsing and modrewrite for what I have planned.

    So... Oscar, could you recommend a few hosting companies there on your page, hosts that have both parsing and modrewrite and are worthy of recommending?

    I host with Linksky and Websiteforme - so far I've had no problems with them - seem to work okay with mod rewrites and parsing php...their prices are pretty reasonable as well.

    I'll put their links up there as well - thanks for the suggestion Donuts.

    Cheers,
