Santa's Elves Enjoy Raspberry Fields Farm Granola

Santa's Elves Enjoy Raspberry Fields Farm Granola

Now that the Christmas rush has come and gone, Santa's Elves can relax, kick back, and enjoy a tasty bowl of their favorite artisan granola from Raspberry Fields Farm. Baked in small batches, and hand packed in the Raspberry Fields Farm Granolary, these wholesome, simple ingredients are fashioned into an opulent taste experience: Rolled oats, crisp rice, whole dried raspberries (or dried apples & raisins in the French Apple Pie Granola), flax seeds, sunflower seeds, coconut, walnuts, clover honey, unbleached flour, evaporated cane juice, canola oil, cinnamon and vanilla.

Savor this delectable treat stirred into yogurt, with dairy, almond, or soy milk, sprinkled over ice cream, or—like the elves working the B shift in Santa's toy shop—consume it as a power snack right out of the reusable artisan bag!

Match ProStores Products with HTTrack Extracted Image Files

Unfortunately, when product images are uploaded to ProStores utilizing the Multi-Image feature, the original file names are replaced with a program generated alpha-numeric name ending in _s, _m, _l (small, medium, large). If you have a large catalog, matching your image files extracted using the HTTRack Website Copier with the original name/product can be a daunting task. However, it is possible to use an exported product.csv file along with the ProStores Custom Product Feed file to easily match the primary image assigned to a given product.

See the Migration Center in your ProStores Administration for details on all migration options being offered to ProStores merchants.

ProStores Migration Guide

Another valuable resource is the ProStores Migration Guide. It contains a migration checklist, content and links needed to steer you through the process of migrating your store. Be sure to download the latest version. Web Design Graphics Imaging SEO Bigcommerce Partner

Saving Your ProStores HTML Pages & Images

Backup your ProStores eCommerce Website with HTTrack Website Copier — Save your HTLM pages and Product Images to your Desktop.

ProStores is shutting down on February 1, 2015. Products eventually reach their natural end of life for various reasons, including changes in technologies and marketplace requirements. This is part of any technology product’s lifecycle. Our goal is to help you make a smooth transition to a new eCommerce solution, and to provide as much visibility as possible during the process.
This video tutorial illustrates how to use HTTrack to download and backup your ProStores pages in HTML as well as your design and product images. This is especially important for ProStores merchants who utilize the Multi-Image feature and don't have copies of their product image files on their computers.

In addition, merchants that added custom pages to the store using ProStores proprietary SSML code will find the HTML rendered versions of the pages useful in recreating them in a new platform as ProStores approaches its EOL on 1 February 2015. Web Design Graphics Imaging SEO Bigcommerce Partner

The End of Net Neutrality

The FCC's proposed Internet rules are out — and they're terrible. As we feared, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is pushing a plan that would allow rampant discrimination online. If approved, these rules would mean the end of Net Neutrality. 
Wheeler’s plan would let Internet service providers like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon create a two-tiered Internet, with fast lanes for those who can afford the extra fees and a slow dirt road for the rest of us. These companies would have the power to pick winners and losers online and discriminate against online content and applications. And no one would be able to do anything about it. 
But we have a way to fight back: The FCC has opened up a comment period for us to weigh in on its proposal. 
Add your comment: Tell the FCC to throw out its rules and instead reclassify ISPs as common carriers. This is the ONLY way to protect real Net Neutrality.     
We'll make sure your comments are filed in FCC Docket 14-28.
