Summary

This plugin enables merchants to create innumerable kind of feeds for their products and orders without needing any additional programming effort. Merchant when creating new feeds using FeedBuilder are able to specify and narrow down exactly the kind of objects they want to include in a particular feed. For example a merchant may create a product feed for all products from a vendor 'V' that are priced between $80 and $249, and that are shippable from warehouse 'W'. If the merchant had to create such a feed himself, it would have taken a significant amount of programming effort. FeedBuilder makes the job easier by allowing the merchants to create feeds like this one and more just by defining a new feed and selecting few options.

Installation

  • Step-1

    • Admin/menu.sitemap
    • Admin/breadcrumbs.sitemap

  • Step-2
    Copy all files from WebSite folder to your store where AbleCommerce is installed. Copy all files to the corresponding directories in your store. For example copy everything from WebSite/ConLib/ folder to ConLib folder of your store and so on.
    Please make sure that you take backup of any existing file that gets updated.

  • Step-3
    If you previously customized Admin/menu.sitemap and Admin/breadcrumbs.sitemap files you will have to manually update these files. Otherwise you can simply replace these files with the files provided in the FeedBuilder installation. To manually update these files follow these steps

    Here is the code that you will have to add to menu.sitemap file. You can add this code anywhere in the main <SiteMapNode> node under the root <siteMap> node.

    <siteMapNode title="Add-Ons" LookId="TopItemLook" roles="System,Admin,Jr. Admin">
        <siteMapNode title="Feed Builder" url="~/Admin/FeedBuilder/Default.aspx" />
    </siteMapNode>


    If a node named 'Add-Ons' already exists you should just add the sub nodes code as follows

    <siteMapNode title="Feed Builder" url="~/Admin/FeedBuilder/Default.aspx" />


    Here is the code that you will have to add to breadcrumbs.sitemap file. You can add this code anywhere in the main <SiteMapNode> node under the root <siteMap> node.
