    Hello,

    I would like to ask two things. Can I show one feed to one menu and other to another? For Example I tried yesterdey to show offer feed to a menu called offer and some coupon feeds to a submenu called coupons but all feeds were appeared to the same menu (offers). The offer feeds (xml) are playing ok but some other feed which are coupon Feeds (xml) are not showing image and can not find the option inage url when I fetch the feed. This is the coupon xml Feed : affiliate.linkwi.se/feeds/CD13680/column...oupon/couponfeed.xml

    Also I have an csv datafeed which I can not fetch it (neither like an xml). The feed is ths:
    affiliate.linkwi.se/feeds/CD13680/column...53/progex-0/feed.csv

    Thank you

    The csv or xml link you wanna use, is an empty feed. There exists nothing in the feed and that is why you can not parse/fetch it.

    The couponfeeds for Linkwise xml or csv coupons need a separate parser in order to fetch/parse the coupons. Check www.alijatoras.com/coupons-codes for coupons.

    The coupons do not include image urls. You can add image urls with a callback or via the layout.

    You can show any single feed items or mixed feed items anywher, on any joomla menu or submenu. U just need to set the Joomla Datafeeds Menu Filter Options accordingly. For example you have 2 feeds, one from mediamarkt and one from public. You set the feed name as MediaMarkt:XXX(it is Merchant:XXX) and Public:XXX(XXX can be nothing or something to separate categories) and XXX would be your Select0(used to separate categories). If you want to show MediaMarkt products you set the Joomla Datafeeds Menu Filter Options->Filter1=Mechant=MediaMarkt-or-Public, if u wanna show both Filter Options->Filter1=Mechant=MediaMarkt,Public. You can set Select0 to filter per preset category-i.e. Phones- or any other SelectX u have set within the datafeed) Check www.alijatoras.com .

    Via callback--> create a callback(i.e. imageforoffers_cb) to use within the coupon feed and create an >
    if ($item==='YOURFEED' && $item===null){
    .....code to assign a specific image to all items or each item using other IFs and/or preg_match/es..... }

    Via layout-->it needs some code to be written and it is more difficult than the callback.

    Any data feed can be empty. Some LinkWise feeds come always empty(i have similar experience) and others can be empty, for a short time, when they get populated. You can contact your manager at LinkWise for such issues you may have. Or you may use the merchants original feed(if they provide one-most do) and use it adding your aff data to the links(automatically populating the original links to contain your aff data and have the outcome LinkWise would provide).
