    Header Tags SEO

    Hi Jack, thanks! That finally made the penny drop...... :blush: I was confusing "Header Tags Categories Description" with the "Header Tags Category Description". Thanks again for all your hard work in producing these contributions and then the mammoth task of supporting them.

    Header Tags SEO

    Hi Jack another excellent contribution thanks! I've just upgraded from HTC 2.6.2 to the new SEO v3.1.0 and have a quick question please. Everything is working great and the manufacturer and category names are being added to the meta tags but is there a way to add the long text for the "descriptions" to the meta tags as well?

    Dynamic SiteMap

    A quick reminder for anyone getting the following error message on their Dynamic Sitemap page after updating to the the latest version of HTC: Remeber to go into catalog/includes/modules/dynamic_sitemap.php and add the line: strpos($file, 'header_tags') !== FALSE || Hope it saves someone else a bit of head scratching...... P.S. Thanks again for the contribs Jack !
  5. For anyone else with a similar issue I have found a fix for the first half with an excellent piece of coding from Boxtel back on page 64 at post #1265: Boxtel's Code Just insert this into application_top.php beneath: // Ultimate SEO URLs v2.1 include_once(DIR_WS_CLASSES . 'seo.class.php'); if ( !is_object($seo_urls) ){ $seo_urls = new SEO_URL($languages_id); } (that was at line 301 for me) Could just do with some help/guidance on the second half now...
  6. I'm using v2.1d and my shop was up and running in all 3 default languages and had been spidered by all the search engines. However, to reduce the admin overhead I decided to run it only in english, so I've dropped the spanish and german. However, I'm still getting hits (mainly from the search engines) on URL's such as: /shop/ambre-solaire-apres-sonnen-150ml-p-95.html /shop/piz-buin-m-14.html?sort=3a&page=1&language=es Obviously as only the english pages now exist, these URL's are returning a result code of "200 OK" and the content from the english pages. I'm going to end up with one hell of a duplicate content penalty! Anyone know how to return a 301/404 for these URL's?

    Protx Direct v2.22

    Hi Tom, You're right on the money as usual ! Although Protx had said it was all set up, they have now come back and said that Natwest Streamline are still testing 3D Secure with Protx and expect to get it signed off within the next couple of months. So it looks like Natwest Streamline may not be up and running until May time (although you think you have turned 3D Secure on in your Protx Account parameters). Thanks again. Bob

    Protx Direct v2.22

    Am I too tired and missing something?????? I've just updated from v2.4 to v3.0c. Everything works ok in Simulator and Test modes (i.e. I'm getting sent to the 3D Screen) but when I go to Production my "live card tests" are just getting authorised as normal from the customer perspective. However, when I log into my VSP admin I can see the message: The initial authentication request returned an ERROR. No 3D-Authentication occurred! Please e-mail support@protx.com to inform us of this error. I have informed Protx who have said: The site is not redirecting the customer to the 3D Secure pages because you are using VSP Direct, this means your developer will need to ensure that the ************* system passes the customer to the 3D Secure pages. Full instructions for doing this can be located in the Intergration Guide this can be found on the URL bellow. I have 3D Secure "ON" and have checked the upgrade again. (I've even amended the 16 to 32 INT length for vendortxcode in the previous posts). Hope this is really one of those "DOH !" moments..........
  9. Hello Jack, Just updated to v2.6.2 and this is an absolutlely brilliant contribution ! A big thank you for all of your effort in developing and then help and time supporting it. Bob
  10. I'm having problems getting redirects to work in my .htaccess. I'm trying to send all non-www traffic to my www domain but I cannot get it to work. Is the redirect for the URLs stopping this or is there something I should add ??
  11. In stand.php around line 136 there are the insurance charges that are used in the calculation for the costs. Remember that depending upon the value of your items to be shipped these insurance costs are added as part of the calculation for shipping. Hope it helps.
  12. I've got this contrib installed but am having trouble trying to redirect non-www to www URL's. My site is set up in www.domain.com/shop but I've been told to redirect any domain.com references to www.domain.com. I've tried numerous .htaccess codes but non seem to work - e.g.: Is the URL rewrite part of the contribution preventing me from doing this ? If so, any suggestions what I need to change ?

    Protx VSP Direct - MS2.2 Support

    Up and running fine on the new host ! Thanks Tom, as you said it was the missing Open SSL statement in the CURL config line. By the way my "old" hosts haven't even replied when I've told them I (well - you actually) have proved what the issue was. Brilliant contrib and thanks again for the help. Regards Bob

    Protx VSP Direct - MS2.2 Support

    Tom, you're a star, thanks! Although I cannot see an icon for shell access in cPanel I'll have a dig around, but more importantly I'll now ask them an explicit question and see what answer I get (if any - I know that's being really cynical and I should know better !). Thanks very much for all the help. I'll give you an update from my new hosting provider in due course.....

    Protx VSP Direct - MS2.2 Support

    Hi Tom, Thanks for that. Although that only confirms my worst suspicions about the hosting company. I've now been down for 3 days and they will not / cannot tell me if anything has changed. Even though I have sent them the report line from PHP info showing that the build date was 28th July !!!! The trouble ticket I raised keeps getting set to closed or put on hold with no response. (Sorry, I could rant on here for ages and you're the one that's actually trying to help me !) Perhaps it's time to look for a new host ? Is there anything else I could check or shall I press on with plan "B" and move hosting provider ? Regards Bob

    Protx VSP Direct - MS2.2 Support

    Hi Tom, Thanks. Yes, both the shared and static IP addresses are set-up in the Protx admin area. However, when I ran in the "Server IP Test" mode, I didn't get the page you describe after the transaction - I got the same line as in the debug mode. Regards Bob

    Protx VSP Direct - MS2.2 Support

    Thanks for that Tom. Tried uncommenting but still the same. Here's the debug output. (It does actually cut off after the = for 3D Secure Status, I haven't made a cut & paste error) Bob

    Protx VSP Direct - MS2.2 Support

    I've been using this excellent contrib for a couple of months now but last week a customer complained that they kept getting their card refused. So after restoring both site and DB to a state prior to the last successful transaction and trying both live and test environments I'm still getting the following at checkout_payment.php: I was on v2.3b and have now tried v2.4 but still the same applies. By the way the transaction doesn't even get passed to Protx, I cannot see it in VSP Admin in either live or test. Anyone else having problems with this or have my webhosts changed something I do not know about as I cannot think of anything I could have changed that would impact this ?
  20. Hi Chris, Thanks for that. Yes, Google wants one or the other, although both types of addresses work. I just wondered if there was a quick way to add the "www" into the sitemap. If it's a case of changing the configure file - I had better get started....... Thanks & have a good weekend. Regards Bob
  21. This is a brilliant contrib but I've got a question that is hopefully easy for you guys here that are in the "know". On the advice of various posts within the forum I've set the "mechanics" of my site up as "http://domain.com" rather than using "www" (e.g. for ssl etc. as it will always default to the www.). However, I've marketed and registered the site on various directories as "http://www.domain.com". But when I've registered the sitemap for this contrib with google I'm getting errors because the contrib is listing all the pages under "http://domain.com" but my registration is under "http://www.domain.com". What do I need to fix / change to generate a sitemap with the www prefix ?
  22. Hi Daz, Thanks for that, I'll check the forum then double check my install.
  23. Brilliant contrib ! Thanks. I've installed v3.2b and it works like a dream. The only problem being under products viewed it draws the outline box and includes the product description but it will not display any jpg images - it only seems to like displaying gif's. Have I got the install right or is it because I'm using the imagemagic contrib ? Regards Bob
  24. I've installed Ulimate SEO URL's v2-2.2 and it's doing what it should, the only problem seems to be that it's "broken" my product notifications in checkout_success.php. As a customer I can select the product notifications option from the Notifications Box on the product_info pages and that shows in my account. But when I buy a product and select the product notifications option check box on the checkout_success pages it doesn't show in my account. product_notifications works fine - adds the notification to my acount: $info_box_contents = array(); $info_box_contents[] = array('text' => BOX_HEADING_NOTIFICATIONS); new infoBoxHeading($info_box_contents, false, false, tep_href_link(FILENAME_ACCOUNT_NOTIFICATIONS, '', 'SSL')); if (tep_session_is_registered('customer_id')) { $check_query = tep_db_query("select count(*) as count from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_NOTIFICATIONS . " where products_id = '" . (int)$HTTP_GET_VARS['products_id'] . "' and customers_id = '" . (int)$customer_id . "'"); $check = tep_db_fetch_array($check_query); $notification_exists = (($check['count'] > 0) ? true : false); } else { $notification_exists = false; } $info_box_contents = array(); if ($notification_exists == true) { $info_box_contents[] = array('text' => '<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2"><tr><td class="infoBoxContents"><a href="' . tep_href_link(basename($PHP_SELF), tep_get_all_get_params(array('action')) . 'action=notify_remove', $request_type) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'box_products_notifications_remove.gif', IMAGE_BUTTON_REMOVE_NOTIFICATIONS) . '</a></td><td class="infoBoxContents"><a href="' . tep_href_link(basename($PHP_SELF), tep_get_all_get_params(array('action')) . 'action=notify_remove', $request_type) . '">' . sprintf(BOX_NOTIFICATIONS_NOTIFY_REMOVE, tep_get_products_name($HTTP_GET_VARS['products_id'])) .'</a></td></tr></table>'); } else { $info_box_contents[] = array('text' => '<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2"><tr><td class="infoBoxContents"><a href="' . tep_href_link(basename($PHP_SELF), tep_get_all_get_params(array('action')) . 'action=notify', $request_type) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'box_products_notifications.gif', IMAGE_BUTTON_NOTIFICATIONS) . '</a></td><td class="infoBoxContents"><a href="' . tep_href_link(basename($PHP_SELF), tep_get_all_get_params(array('action')) . 'action=notify', $request_type) . '">' . sprintf(BOX_NOTIFICATIONS_NOTIFY, tep_get_products_name($HTTP_GET_VARS['products_id'])) .'</a></td></tr></table>'); checkout_success looks as though it is working (no error codes) when I check the product notification box but it does not add the notification to my account: if ($global['global_product_notifications'] != '1') { echo TEXT_NOTIFY_PRODUCTS . '<br><p class="productsNotifications">'; $products_displayed = array(); for ($i=0, $n=sizeof($products_array); $i<$n; $i++) { if (!in_array($products_array[$i]['id'], $products_displayed)) { echo tep_draw_checkbox_field('notify[]', $products_array[$i]['id']) . ' ' . $products_array[$i]['text'] . '<br>'; $products_displayed[] = $products_array[$i]['id']; } } echo '</p>'; } else { echo TEXT_SEE_ORDERS . '<br><br>' . TEXT_CONTACT_STORE_OWNER; } I can see that the two blocks of code are different but can anyone give me a steer on what I should check/change?
  25. I've got this contrib installed and it works like a dream, However, I've tracked down a problem on my site to it (please note the site is live - www.travelbagsize.com/shop/). After a purchase when you go to checkout_success.php you are offered the check box option for Product Notifications. When you "check" this it does not work. Everything looks ok but the product notification is not updated in the customer account. Any ideas ??
