Hello, your images are being loaded. The feed is an XML file not a web page, when you view it in a web browser you will not see it displayed like a web page, that means you won't see the images. However if you right-click on the page and select 'view source' then you will see that the image links are there, for example:
<g:image_link>http://autosolar.es/images/stories/virtuemart/product/enphase-autoconsumo-conectores-aereos.jpg</g:image_link>

Also when you submit the feed to Google you will find that Google can load the images, which is the thing that matters.

Yes, it is a long-standing bug with Joomla that in the robots.txt file the images folder is disallowed - it is crazy, it stops Google crawling the folder. It can be fixed by removing the line

Disallow: /images/

Hi, I have a problem with the generation of the feed to Google, because I do not upload product images.
In the options I can not find the line where you can enter the path of the product images.
I kindly ask your support.
greetings
Alessandro

I am not sure I understand you. Are you saying that you do not have images for the products? Google will not accept products without images, so you need to have them.

Or are you saying that you include them some other way? Please explain clearly.

OK, I have an idea about what may help with this. In the file site/models/googlebasexml.php change line 585 from
if($media->file_type == 'product' && in_array($media->file_mimetype,$mime_array))

to
if($media->file_type == 'product')

Alternatively check your database, look at the virtuemart_medias table, make sure that the file_mimetype is correctly set to image/jpeg for your images

Thank you very much, I solved with this change.
A final problem, how come the feed picks up the prices without the discount?

Thanks again for your help.

The feed should show the discount - if you have an example where it is not showing the discount please let me know and I will investigate.

Are you using the stockable variants plugin? You may need to enable the 'calculate plugin prices' option in the feed options.
