    Addon installer concept

    :) me too but to be ho :) Me too very lazy! To be honest is the 15years I have been using osc I have never had more that 15-20 addon ever and of those I think I actually use about 12, so for me its never being an issue. But I see from another discussion going on that some people have over 70 addons and for that I can understand it being a good idea. But then me personally would lokk to remove as meany addons as possible.

    Addon installer concept

    Mine is just an opinion, eople are free to mak any adoon they wish. However from my experiance addons as as easy to install now as they have ever been. But your right if people want a click and install why not.

    Addon installer concept

    Is there an issue with instaling addons? I personaly have never had problems installing and dont see hundreds of posts saying addons are hard to install? In fact with the new version with the push to make addons core free its even simpler than ever. So personaly I dont see it as a high priorty but as ever nothing stopping it beeing another addon for addons. :)

    HoneyPot Captcha

    Just a quick thank’s Jack for the Honeypot add-on, All my new Edge sites contact us pages were being targeted by spammers. It started immediately they went live. Typicality about 10 different emails each would send between 10-50 spam emails per contact us page per site. The server has Spamassassin active and hosting had active firewall for spam as well but they still got through. I installed the Honeypot and almost immediate drop in spam. Its been about a week now and for each site still getting the 10 spam email but on each site only 1 of each coming through. As you can see from the action recorded only a few getting through now, most come from Russia or Romania on my sites.

    ULTIMATE Seo Urls 5 - by FWR Media

    Are seo friendly urls needed? The answer is simple and definitely YES! Its not a question of personal choice, All websites should be designed with the customer at its core, and search engines are your customer also. In fact for a new site it could be said they are one of your most important customers. Personal opinions don't matter here, just ask the customer what he needs and do it. The old saying “the customer is king” is still true. I would recommend anyone not sure should read the following guide lines. They will give you a good idea of what is required. https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/7451184?hl=en Now more specifically seo friendly URL’s Google definitely recommend that you use them. They give clear guidelines on what one should aim for. If after reading the guide lines you still feel you don't need them then fine after all its your website and you chose what it offers. As a shop owner my recommendation would be definitely yes use them. With this add-on that's your decision. This is what Google recommends Simple URLs convey content information Creating descriptive categories and filenames for the documents on your website not only helps you keep your site better organized, it can create easier, "friendlier" URLs for those that want to link to your content. Visitors may be intimidated by extremely long and cryptic URLs that contain few recognizable words. URLs like the one shown in the image above can be confusing and unfriendly. Users would have a hard time creating a link to it. Some users might link to your page using the URL of that page as the anchor text. If your URL contains relevant words, this provides users with more information about the page than an ID or oddly named parameter would. URLs are displayed in search results Lastly, remember that the URL to a document is usually displayed in a search result in Google below the document title. Google is good at crawling all types of URL structures, even if they're quite complex, but spending the time to make your URLs as simple as possible is a good practice. Best Practices Use words in URLs URLs with words that are relevant to your site's content and structure are friendlier for visitors navigating your site. Avoid: Using lengthy URLs with unnecessary parameters and session IDs. Choosing generic page names like "page1.html". Using excessive keywords like "baseball-cards-baseball-cards-baseballcards.htm". Create a simple directory structure Use a directory structure that organizes your content well and makes it easy for visitors to know where they're at on your site. Try using your directory structure to indicate the type of content found at that URL. Avoid: Having deep nesting of subdirectories like ".../dir1/dir2/dir3/dir4/dir5/dir6/page.html". Using directory names that have no relation to the content in them. Provide one version of a URL to reach a document To prevent users from linking to one version of a URL and others linking to a different version (this could split the reputation of that content between the URLs), focus on using and referring to one URL in the structure and internal linking of your pages. If you do find that people are accessing the same content through multiple URLs, setting up a 301 redirect33 from non-preferred URLs to the dominant URL is a good solution for this. You may also use canonical URL or use the rel="canonical"34 link element if you cannot redirect. Avoid: Having pages from subdomains and the root directory access the same content, for example, "domain.com/page.html" and "sub.domain.com/page.html".

    Yes have opted for file, but still bugging me as to why it crashed. Can not find cache system: <b>sqlite - supported</b> in /modules/ultimate_seo_urls5/main/bootstrap.php on line 521 Looks like somthing is directing it to the wrong directory after the edit.

    ULTIMATE Seo Urls 5 - by FWR Media

    Just installed Ultimate_Seo_Urls_5_PRO_BS_208, worked fine after install all URLs showing as expected. Then followed instructions to check Admin side and made changes Recomended, all well until I go to " Select your chosen cache system?" On install it was set by default to sqlite and worked. However when I went to edit this function nothing was selected so picked sqlite-Standerd, Admin display changed from sqlite to sqlite-standerd and site just turned to blank page!! Had to switch to another setting ( mysql ) to get site to work again. Installed on 4 live sites dose same on all, works fine after default install but nothing actualy selected in " Select your chosen cache system?" and then site messes up if you tick sqlite-Standerd. .htaccess set as required have checked all files and appeare in order? apart from this it works fine.

    Quick Product Updates for osc 2.3+

    Hi John, Just some more feedback, not sure why this should be happening but the layout changes depending on number of products beeing displayed. Only happens when you do a preview in the layout shown. When i remove Model it works. It also only occures when you select more than 55 products to display!

    Quick Product Updates for osc 2.3+

    security warning was due to my **/**/congfig.php having not defined https on all lines, Sorry silly error. Preview works fine once this is fixed.

    Quick Product Updates for osc 2.3+

    Quick Product Updates for osc 2.3+

    Also selecting a catogory and picking a manufacturer will not work? It only shows products in a catogry if all manufacturers is selected.

    Quick Product Updates for osc 2.3+

    Hi John, Trying to check some price changes on live site, was just wanting to prevew a posiable price rise but its not allowing this, all I get is an error and no change is shown in preview! Individual prices changes work but it will not allow % preview
  19. may be I have got my self confused! But when I installed the Edge on its own it did not have the option to shows catogorys on the front page! that is why I added front page and catogorys on front page modules. My be I had better just start over and see what happens. been a bit distracted as one of my other websites has been hacked over night and hosting company has susspended it!!! but will start another thread for help with that. Thanks.
  20. As far as I can tell (will check again ) have used latest Edge from github and both addons down loaded from the links in Burts thread, so shoud be the right ones. Will just have to keep checking and see if I have made a mistake.
  21. Ok changed all the files as suggested in the module language file and error was removed. However not all modules appeared in the admin side ( category image missing) and even those that did none actually worked! Would install but had no effect on website? any ideas?
  22. Just installed this and getting this error when clicking on content in admin! What have I done wrong? Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CONST in /home/justcook/public_html/includes/languages/english/modules/content/category/cm_category_new_products.php on line 13

    [Addon} Superfish Categories Box

    "You might try adding hyphens: auto; and line-break: normal; to the CSS" Must have done it wrong as it had no effect? This is what I did at top of css file .sf-menu, .sf-menu * { margin: 0; padding: 0; list-style: none; hyphens: auto; line-break: normal;

    [Addon} Superfish Categories Box

    Just installed supper fish and working fine apart from long names! Text display outside the category instead of wrapping round as it does in standard category. Have I done something wrong or do I need to modify code? Also on small devices the cat are not fitting screen? First cat full width , subcat off screen so un usable on phones and tablets.
