Now i have uninstalled the old plugin, download a new file from your site (version 3.50). Copy the files exactly as is under the folder 3.50 in the zip, restart the site and install the plugin again. No success exactly same problem.

Another strange thing i can see, is that your plugin creates a new main menu right of the help menu in nop. Maybe its nothing to worry about, but no other plugin we have installed creates there own main menu...

It's good.
We used old nopCommerce recommendations to use one menu item "Plugin".
If each developer will create new root menu item you will have very long menu.... :).

About your problem.
1. Enable debugging on plugin Configure page.
2. Try to open feed list too...
3. Send me plugin log file FoxNetSoft.Plugin.Feed.Manager_log.txt from App_Data folder. to my e-mail
support@foxnetsoft.com
4. Check nop Log too if it has any error messages.

It looks like the problem was access problem to the file feed.xml. I gave iis_iusrs modify rights and then the feed list works. Maybe there are some other file i also should check access rights to? I use Azure and i use ftp to put the file on the web server, then i unzip it directly in the plugin folder.

Hello again-

We are working with Google Adwords which uses the same feed as the Google Shopping program.
Our campaign manager has asked if it is possible for other options to appear in the drop-down box of the Field Name column.
Each of these new features would allow for better Google AdWords management.

This first Field Name option they want to include in the feed is "Product Cost."

The second new option they want is "Profit Margin." It would be a derived value using a formula.
This is the formula:

X = Cost
Y = Price
Z = Y minus X
Profit Margin = Z divided by X
(result is a percentage value which we will pass-through using a custom_label_0-4 feed column in the feed)

That's funny..after my post, I also asked our Adwords campaign manager the same thing.
I thought maybe they would want to see it like:  10%
..but they said the decimal values are better for them.

I think that this formula finds profit margin:

X = Cost
Y = Price
Z = Y minus X
ProfitMargin = Z divided by X

and this formula finds profit margin percentage:

X = Cost
Y = Price
Z = Y minus X
P = Z divided by X
ProfitMargin = P multiplied by 100

..some admins may prefer profit margin percentage..I don't know.

Hello,

I have some troubles with pictures in Google Products. I have many product pictures of i.e. screw in a format like 600x50
Unfortunately Google demands a minimum size of 100x100 causing in disapproving many of my products.

Is there a posibility to implement a function in Google Feed manager to create new "google-product-picture-thumbs" with increases canvas (white or transperent background) for Productpictures having a side below minimum?

Thanks in advance.

I think it's a bad idea to add white or transparent canvas....
because one pictures has grey canvas, another white or transparent canvas...
I thought to change size of picture using small of size, but you will have bad quality of picture....

It's better for your business to look for good pictures with correct size.
Yes, it's a time, but you will have another result using GOOD pictures.

P.S.
I thought to take pixel color from left corner and add canvas using this color....
It's a bad idea.

I'd suggest that you modify one of your images and use a program called iMacros (or similar) to record all of the actions. Then you can run a batch and do all your images at the same time with very little effort.

Hello,

I solved this by adding this in GetPictureUrl(..)

var strcall = GetCallingMethod("GetPictureUrl");
            String specialFThumbFileParameter = null;
            if (strcall == "FoxNetSoft.Plugin.Feed.Manager.Services.FeedPictureService.GetFeedPictureUrl")
                specialFThumbFileParameter = "Feed";

So I can call an overridden adjusted GetPictureUrl(..) with following additional code to generete specific thumbs marked as i.e. "canvas-resised":

if(!String.IsNullOrEmpty(specialThumbFilenameParameter))
                    thumbFileName = !String.IsNullOrEmpty(seoFileName)
                    ? string.Format("{0}_{1}_{2}_{4}.{3}", picture.Id.ToString("0000000"), seoFileName, targetSize, lastPart, specialThumbFilenameParameter)
                    : string.Format("{0}_{1}_{3}.{2}", picture.Id.ToString("0000000"), targetSize, lastPart, specialThumbFilenameParameter);

To actually resize canvas, some lines below, I adjusted Nop-code like that:

using (var destStream = new MemoryStream())
                                {
                                    var newSize = CalculateDimensions(b.Size, targetSize);
                                    if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(specialThumbFilenameParameter)) // checking if pic is for google feed, then resize canvas for width = height
                                        if (newSize.Height < targetSize)
                                            newSize.Height = targetSize;
                                        else if (newSize.Width < targetSize)
                                            newSize.Width = targetSize;
                                    ImageBuilder.Current.Build(b, destStream, new ResizeSettings
                                    {
                                        Width = newSize.Width,
                                        Height = newSize.Height,
                                        Scale = ScaleMode.Both,
                                        Quality = _mediaSettings.DefaultImageQuality                                        
                                    });
                                    pictureBinaryResized = destStream.ToArray();
                                    b.Dispose();
                                }


Thats works for me..BUT would be more efficient to be able to drop "GetCallerMethod(..)" to know when to get/use canvas-changed thumbs or not.. Best way was , I guess, to implement special-Thumb-generation in directly in Feedmanager by an option. But this is of course your choice :-) Dont know for sure, but there has to be others facing same challenge with google-Pics minimum size of BOTH x and y to 100px.

Thank you for this code.

I thought about your problem too.
FeedManager supports external plugins.
https://www.foxnetsoft.com/documentation-nopfeedmanager#q14
You can do plain plugin and create pictures with canvas using external plugin,
but ...
I'll think about your idea.
