I was looking for some way of at least attempting to comply with the EU cookie laws which come into full effect in the UK this month, so i had a look for a WordPress plugin for this site and came across Cookie warning for wordpress. Now I’m not a legal expert and have no idea whether this is sufficient or not but my theory is that at least I’ve made an effort…..

Listing Products in Google Product Search
Since August 2008 when we first released a Google Product Search (Google Base) module a lot has changed. Not only has Google’s own service undergone a series of changes to the feed specification, Prestashop has also moved on.
The release of Prestashop 1.4.x in particular has seen support for many of the additional data items not previously possible to include, along with major changes in the generation of SEO urls which alone merit a code refresh. It has also become much harder to get good rankings in Product Search as the uptake has increased, and more attention needs to be taken in terms of feed data quality than ever before.

Getting noticed in Google Product Search
There has been huge demand for a module to allow upload of the products in Prestashop installations to Google Base. In an attempt to satisfy this, until such time as I can have a look at implementing it using the Google Base API, I threw together some code that will hopefully work. Only minimal testing has been performed, so I recommend that you use with caution.
Special thanks to Icarus for debugging the latest versions, and for the new feature suggestions for the 0.6.x series and beyond….
Update: The latest version can be found at Prestashop Google Product Search

Debugging Prestashop Templates
While stumbling around the internet as you do when pondering a particularly awkward programming challenge, I came across an excellent post on smarty debug with FireBug. This inspired me to pull together a Prestashop module to allow store owners, designers and developers to view indepth debugging data from right within the Prestashop environment.

Addstuff will be 1 year old on 5th August 2009!!
Here’s a fun little module that several have used to add some easy custom items to their pages. Inspired by many modules by the same (or similar) names for other open source projects, this allows you to include your own html (or anything else you can think of) into your right or left column easily.
The configuration consists of two items:
- A filename (default “mystuff.html” in the module directory)
- A check box to select using the standard box model class (heading is styled with h4)
The example code puts an image and link on your page, so you’ll probably want to change it, but feel free to link back to here from your sites. We appreciate your support!
Latest Version: Addstuff v0.6.3
We had an issue recently where there was some difficulty contacting the paypal server to verify an IPN passed back to a PrestaShop store.
The v1 Final version of the paypal validation.php file only uses fsockopen to establish an http connection to paypal (production or sandbox) to verify, so we’ve added a little code to ours to:
1) Use a secure connection if possible (using fsockopen)
2) Use cURL if the above fails to connect, and
3) Use an insecure http connection if the above fails.
The patched files can be downloaded here: Paypal module update for Version 1.0 Final
We’re pleased to release BETA 1 of our modified version of the PrestaShop Paypal Payment module that will hopefully address a few more of the shortcomings of the original 18.104.22.168 version.
This latest version provides tighter integration with IPN notifications, and supports all the current message combinations for both instant and eCheck payments. Refunds and cancellations are also supported, although only as far as this functionality is supported by PrestaShop itself.
