In this article, I will explain how to import custom xml files to FeedArmy.
Login to FeedArmy and go to Import Tools > XML
In the setup tab, choose custom from the XML Namespace drop down.
Than add your remote XML url, the file name does not have to end with .xml, as long as the file is declared xml it can be imported.
If you have .htaccess password protected your remote XML file, you can add the credentials to gain access.
Choose your Target Country
Click on the tab custom elements, to begin mapping to attributes.
First add your loop container, in most cases this will be item or entry.
Mapping Simple Elements
If you have simple elements, than add the name of the element and than choose a target mapping. For example, my xml element is title and the target attribute is title.
Mapping Name Spaced Elements
When you have a name spaced element, simply add the namespace colon and element. For example g:title and the target attribute is title.
Mapping Nested Elements
Each nested element needs to be identified with a hyphen and more than arrow. The correct symbol will be ->
For example if we want to collect a nested simple image within the parent images you should type the following images->image
The same applies to name spaced elements g:images->g:image
Than map to the correct attribute
You can add more elements by clicking on add another element.
