Download the entire plugin folder before making changes.

You shouldn’t have to worry about overwriting events if you are only uploading by FTP , events will be stored elsewhere in the database.

But do the backup first so you can go back to where you started just incase.

I remember this getting discussed a few times in the past. I for one would love to see some monthly stats for each marketplace like:

top google search queries that didn’t result in a sale:

top site search queries that didn’t result in a sale:

In the early days when I didn’t fully understand the licenses I was telling customers who wanted a multi-use license just to buy the extended license.

I also did quite a few custom licensing deals (ie: you buy 10 items and I’ll let you use it unlimited times) on a number of occasions.

Hoping to see something along the lines of an “unlimited use” license soon – even if it’s just to update the extended license terms to allow for unlimited use of standard license.

Just keep trying to drop those two+ tables over and over again. That should get you past the foreign key issue.

Maybe you should post a full example of what you are trying to achieve. The website(s) you are trying to scrape and the purpose. The community may be able to provide a working solution or point out any legal issues if they know the whole picture.

No referrals, just sales.

That can be very difficult.

I would suggest approaching it step by step. First get the contents of the web page:

$url = "http://foo.com";
$data = file_get_contents($url);
echo htmlspecialchars($data);

then work out a way to get the parts of the content you need, I find the quickest way is with regex but you might find a different way

preg_match_all('#<div>(.*)</div>#imsU',$data,$matches);
print_r($matches[1]);

then do whatever you want with the matched bits.
