Default Automatically generate google product feed

Does anyone know a code snippet in php or a module that can run the google product feed output automatically? I have to log in once a week to generate the file, I would like it to just automatically generate once a week from a cron job.

I'm afraid it has to be custom coded.

Never existed in XC4. It has to be custom coded and tied to the XC internal cron. Then you can run it from the server.
If you need professional help with this just let me know.

Does your Froogle module support product title variants with additional attributes such as color and size as per the Google Product Data Spec.

From Google, regarding the Title attribute: For variants, Include a distinguishing feature such as color or size.

We have added Extrafields for Size and Color. Now we need to make sure those attributes are added to the product title for variants.

The tool is flexible enough for you to adjust the default title to include other fields in the product database. We can help you implement this if needed. Drop us an email if you'd like a quote.
