Default Custom Plugin/Datafeedr Questions

Hi Eric,

We are wanting to have a custom plugin to add products from gifts.com into the datafeedr products database and assign the products to datafeedr categories. Could you could tell me which tables I need to direct our programmer to query and modify. From looking over the tables within the database I think the datafeedr plugin works as follows:

The datafeedr plugin queries the product id/category id table (wp_dfr_products2category or the wp_dfr_shop_p2c table) to determine which products belong in a given category and passes this information back to the server . The server then queries the products table (wp_dfr_products or wp_dfr_shop_products) for the products in that category and returns the data for output onto the page. Is this correct? If so, could you let me know which table drive the products, categories and product assignments.

Our programmer would need to know the following:

1. The name of the table where the products are stored
2. The name of the table where products are assigned to categories
3. The table where the category names and ID's are stored.

Our goal is to create a plugin to add the gifts.com products and assign them to datafeedr categories without modifying any of the datafeedr code. I believe the above would work since the datafeedr plugin would simply return the gifts.com products if the required data was added to the tables. Gifts.com specifies their own product ID so we would just use those for assigning the datafeedr products ID and assign the product ID's to categories.

Thanks.

Hi

I think you about got it. The product data is stored in a fairly simple manner and any programmer with basic MySQL knowledge will quickly be able to determine how the data is stored and also how to query it.

1. wp_dfr_shop_products
2. wp_dfr_shop_p2c
3. wp_dfr_shop_cats

Thanks Eric. That's what I thought but just wanted to confirm before spending the money
