Affiliate Window

Products to Include
You can choose which products to include based upon a custom variable. This is very similar to the Exclude from Froogle Feed/Google Product Search Data Feed setting within Actinic.If you tick Check value before including you can choose a custom variable (clicking on the Set button) you are shown the following dialog:



You can then select the custom variable to use to determine if you want to include this product in the feed. You can set the default value to True (include in feed) or False (don't include in feed). This value will be used if a custom variable value has not been assigned to a product.

Note: When you create a custom value you should set its type to True/False.

Affiliate Window allows you to provide additional information for each product not defined within Actinic. You can either use the same fixed phrase (or word) for all products
or if you want to have different text for each product you can define Actinic Custom Vars. The additional information that can be supplied for each product is :
†††††††††††
Category (Mandatory)

††††††††††† You can define the Category in the folllowing ways
