a while back a client of mine had "The Find" installed in their magento site, but it's been shutdown since then, and the site is dragging because it can't find "the find feed" when loading. any idea how to remove this stupid thing ??
http://www.modestapparelusa.com/ is the site to see what the upfront.thefeed.com is doing to the performance
This has been bugging me for ages so I took action today.
Here is how I removed it from one of our Magento CE 18.104.22.168 installations - Back up your data and your files first just in case then remove:
and in PHPmyAdmin run this to remove the data table:
DROP TABLE `find_feed_import_codes`;
And you're find feed free!
Remember my directory structure may be different to yours, but the files should all be present in a similar structure.
includes folder exists only when you use compilation and you're not supposed to do any changes there as it gets overwritten every time you recompile.
