Introduction

The DySE::Rockler script (make.pl) is a Perl script program that works in conjunction with the generic DySE™ viewer script (view.pl) to display products offered by Rockler.com. The DySE::Rockler script and the DySE™ viewer script run on your web server.

When you run the DySE::Rockler script (make.pl), it downloads and processes the product datafeed file from Rockler.com and creates a products database file. When a user visits your website, the DySE™ viewer script (view.pl) is run and it displays product pages, category pages, or the home page.

A live example website that uses DySE::Rockler is WoodworkingOutlet.com


Installation

Note:   Already an affiliate of Rockler.com
If you are already an affiliate of Rockler.com and are making sales through your current affiliate ID, Rockler.com has asked that you open another account and obtain another Rockler.com affiliate ID (you can have more than one account). If you have any questions about opening another account, contact the Rockler.com affiliate manager at  affiliatesx@xrocklerx.xcom  or at (877) 377-7547.


Important:   Requires view.pl v5.05.11 or higher
The DySE::Rockler make.pl requires DySE™ view.pl v5.05.11 or higher. If you have a lower version of view.pl on your server, you must upgrade it to v5.05.11 or higher. Upgrading view.pl merely involves replacing your current view.pl file with the latest view.pl. For the latest view.pl, click here. (Advanced: Required to handle {merch:URL} substitutions.)


Note:   Datafeed updated daily
Rockler.com updates their datafeed on a daily basis. To have your website display the latest products and prices, it is recommended that you run the DySE::Rockler make.pl script at least once a week. To automate the task of running make.pl, set up a scheduled cron job on your server.
