I was checking into this .... www.wordpressdatafeedimport.com - This will post your datafeed products into WP - I believe its legit but posting one product per post doesnt sound very cool. Although it is one way to automate a blog. The best tool for datafeeds IMO is WebMerge. Then intergrate that into your WP website.

It's my impression that most of the time a datafeed is just RSS. In this case most new templates for WP include widget support on dynamic sidebars, which allows the use of an RSS widget. This is simply used by dragging, dropping, and then copying the RSS url to the widget, save, and wham!

All the datafeeds I get for affiliate marketing are .txt and .csv files that need to be integrated via scripts or software.

Post I've been able to do this.

The wordpressdatafeedimport.com software costs $137. Need I say more?! And who knows if it will even work? Personally, I wouldn't spend more than $50 on a data feed import unless I knew for certain that it would do the trick with my unique feed files.

Also, my suppliers regularly change their feed file format (for improvements), so what happens when I finally find something that works well, and then it suddenly stops working when the format changes (ie. different layout or delimiter change)?

I have a product feed that is in tab delimited format, and it contains about 700 products. I needed to be able to import everything at once, creating categories on-the-fly, sorting the products into their associated categories, defining price or shipping markups by percentage, and the ability to use variable tags in the post content that refer to their corresponding feed cell content. There was no way I was going to do this all manually. I refused!

At first, I assumed that there must be a WordPress plugin out there that would simplify this task, but the more I looked, the more it became apparent that I would have to settle for something less than what I wanted, or pay a high price for something that couldn't guarantee compatibility. In my search efforts, I gave up and just wrote the software myself, which I'm happy I decided to do since now I can import all different types of feeds without changing delimiters, column names, or moving columns around to suit the parser.

With most of the CSV parsing software available, you are still left with the arduous task of manually setting markups, manually creating categories, and manually sorting posts into their categories, not to mention changing the feed around to suit the parser, instead of telling the parser what to look for in the feed.

If you're in the same position that I was in, email me (user: seordin, account: gmail), and we can work something out.

Thanks for reading.

DataFeed for WordPress

I too have been looking for a DataFeed for Word Press. I paid for and tried one called Digitalquill and I never could get it to work on 2.8. Unfortunately they would not refund my money. I constantly received errors on the import files.

I am thinking about doing one myself. If anyone has any ideas I would be happy to here them.

The Digitalquill one is the one that I use and it works fine on wordpress 2.8, they have just sent out a new update which was free, which can import the datafeed from a URL and update it automatically.

No I have not had any problems with the Digitalquill product
