    1143 ToolKing Products Whacked
    Well, 16 days later I decided to take some initiative of my own.

    I just whacked 1143 products that didn't have images, should be all that don't.

    And it only took me 3 and 1/2 hours.

    MBB,

    If you work with excel a bit more the "whacking" should online take a few minutes for the sort and about 30 second to delete. Toolking is not the only feed with this issue.

    Looks like you have put a lot of work into Skaboodle (good work at that ;-)...where is the on site search?

    mrbshouse,

    The thing is the image fields aren't empty. There's actually a real image URL, there are just no images that correlate with the URL. If they were empty then there would have been nothing to do, just a PHP check when I pull the field from the database and show a "no image" image or the real image.

    So I went page by page and copied the "Buy URL"'s. There's where the time came in.

    Gary,

    It's cool. I told you I was just impatient. While I did "whack" the products last night, I decided to change the database queries to set that field to empty where "Buy URL" equaled what I had tracked down. I'll get it live tonight and work on that tools site under my old domain too.


    Thanks for the comments on the site. There's still a long way to go, I just have more ideas than time. Site search is on the list, along with a separate shopping search.

    MBB,

    Do they all list the same url.com/brokenimage.jpg? I hate to throw traffic if there is no image, so i crunch the list before import and found that to work with some.

    No, they all have their own unique, product ID-based image name.

    That would have been nice, because again I could have handled it easily by running a delete from query on the database where ThumbURL = "url.com/brokenimage.jpg".

    I looked for all the easy avenues first.
