Google Shopping Plugin for NOP 4.0 Not Creating Correct Image Path, Serious Problem!

Posted: March 19, 2018 at 11:13 PM Quote #202145
We have upgraded our site to NOP 4.0, downloaded and installed the Google Shopping Plugin for 4.0 Ver. 1.83, generated our Google feed and fetched it in merchant center. The feed errors out from Google with the following error:

867 ERROR: Invalid URL in attribute: image link.

When I look at the XML file the image link is missing the "/" between the site URL and the image location.

</g:image_link>

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the plugin with the same outcome.

The product path is fine.

This is a serious problem and Google has taken down all of our products.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Double check that the store url has a trailing "/" at the end in config > stores

I had this problem too.

As long as the url has a trailing slash, should be fine

I had to add the "/" onto my host values as well in order to make the Google Shopping Plugin work. Thank you for your suggestion, I'm back in business.

I thought the problem was solved with the above solution but it has come back. Can anyone think of a reason that the feed is not inserting the "/" between the url and the image dir as below.

I have placed a "/" on all url's in stores.

I'm out of ideas.

I actually strongly dislike the native plugin so I hacked my own solution.

If no one can come up with a working solution, I will share mine.

I need to multi channel to as many as I want ON SCHEDULE without waiting for a plug-in to come out so I made something that deals with the DB direct.

I am responsible for a community of nopcommerce shops and just can't wait for hot fixes so I make my own solutions.

I'll be watching this thread and follow up if it's empty in the next 24 hours.

I also strongly dislike the feeling of having a shop down and no one is there to help.

The pool recycling bug at azure was hell.

Looks like we are going to have to take matters into our own hands more than expected, which has its up sides but I wish the core team was just a Liiiittle but more active

Will follow up for sure

Hi,

Hope i can share my issue in this chat considering it's about google shopping plugin.

We're working with nop 3.90 and for the first we would like to setup google shopping.
I've selected a google categorie, saved all the settings en clicked "Create feed".
The link that has been created in nopcommerce does not work in Google Merchant Center.
It keeps giving error 'File not found'.

Am i missing something?
Do i need to set some changes in nopcommerce itself before it can create a correct feed link?
Don't understand what could be wrong.

Appreciate any feedback!

Best regards Bart

Figured it out, The feed created a file in my DB called /content/files/ExportImport/1-
Since the format was not assigned i've added .xml en copied this link in google merchant center and everything works fine.
Maybe it can be of any use to other users...

Hi,

I have installed Google shopping plugin and I am trying to get it to work but it's giving me an error. I get the error when I click on the Generated file path (static) link to download generated product feed. The error that I keep getting is An error occurred while executing the command definition. See the inner exception for details.

Can you please walk me through how to get it to work and how I can fix the error. I'm thinking someone might have used the plugin before and successfully implemented it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards
