Support request: CSV file not being discovered in html folder

Hey @MOGMartin,

I am using your plugin on a WP multisite with domain mapping. This may be the problem but I really need it to work because I run many affiliate sites on one install of WP and share plugins, themes, codebase, etc. Makes upgrading a bunch of sites a breeze.

Anyway, I have the CSV file saved here-
/public_html/wp-content/plugins/pricecomparison/html

which I assume is the right place, but when I go to the wpPC dashboard, nothing shows up except the "Save feeds into the html directory".

If it is indeed the WPMU installation causing the problem, what can we do to get around that?

Thanks!

    Hi mate,

    I need to check the messaging on that, the feeds need to be saved into the /feeds/ directory, not the /html/ directory.... if its saying that, its my fault sorry!

    The whole backend is actually pretty much redesigned on the next version which is why Ive left it looking, well a bit like a dogs dinner to be honest.

    if you are on skype, shoot me your address over by PM and I can help you out live when we are both online.

    best regards

    by the way, Ive never tested it on wpmu, so can not guarantee it works... Id just use it on a standard install if I were you. Intrigued though as to what you are using it on the MU version for anyway? shoot me a PM with your plans and I will see if I can help/modify the plugin to suit.

    cheers

    Moved the files to the feed/ folder, I can see them in admin now. There's a file in the feed/ folder that says to move feeds to the html folder. That's one place I know...not sure where else in instructions it might be. Sent you a PM as well.

    Okay, so it imported my feed just fine. I'm trying to set up a ruleset now but it seems to either not be working or not working like I'm expecting it to.

    I've set up the rule set as "Drop Record If Not" and the field as "ADVERTISERCATEGORY". I want to filter out anything that's not in the category of my website's niche, so I put in the text box "Foo Bar". The actual category is "Supplies, Foo Bar". I also tried adding the whole category in there with the comma but no go there either. When I execute both of those, my resultset is 0. I have at least one product in this feed though I know because I see it. There are something like 25k products total.

    Am I just doing that wrong?

    Im a total idiot and I really apologise if you wasted any time on that. This weekends release will be fixed (along with a much prettier control panel).

    the search on this is exact match, so you would have to use the full field, including the comma... what format specifically is this? is it correctly quoted?

    I havent tried a drop record on a table with comma's - but will check it all works ok from here.

    It's a .csv file with " text delimiters. I'll PM you the direct link if you want to grab and play with it.
