Make a cron job for this

We have multiple images per product but they are the same image just the correct sizes. We dont want them to display under the product image as additional images.

So when we upload products I have to run this is the dbase.

UPDATE catalog_product_entity_media_gallery_value SET disabled = 0;
UPDATE catalog_product_entity_media_gallery_value AS mgv,
(SELECT entity_id, COUNT(*) as image_count, MAX(value_id) AS value_id
FROM catalog_product_entity_media_gallery AS mg
GROUP BY entity_id
HAVING image_count = 2) AS mg
SET mgv.disabled = 1
WHERE mgv.value_id = mg.value_id

This basically excludes all product images that have a count of 2 or more.

So ideally I would like this as a cron job but have no idea how to do it.

Any suggestions?

Howdy Dom,
Yes, adapt the script from this tutorial

And you would want something like this:

$w = Mage::getSingleton(‘core/resource’)->getConnection(‘core_write’);

and this with your query in

$result = $w->query(‘your query here’);
if (!$result) {
echo "arh, I failed! Run for the hills!";
} else {
echo "Happy Days";
