Hi

Is there a way to mark a product as 'included' similar to an archive bit in incremental backups?

The problem is that we have very many products that appear in more than one category.

Due to the number of products, they are split into 3 feeds (per day, per currency)

That means many products will appear in more than one feed and Google kick-off with their warning messages.

'Distinct' needs to be for all the feeds combined rather than each one separately so being able to mark each product with a date would solve the duplication issue.

TIA

The solution is to not use categories to split the feeds, but to use the limit and limit start settings. Because of the way the SQL query runs to select the product ids, these will always be distinct. Also I think it is easier that way.

I don't see a practical way to do things the way that you suggest.

Thanks, I already split 3 feeds by limits rather than categories.

And you are still having a problem with some products being included in more than one feed? I am a bit puzzled by this, I think that the only way it could happens if they are included more than one in the Virtuemart product table with different ids.

In the next release we are including a feature that will allow you to unpublish individual products from the feed, which you could use in that case.
