  1. Not sure to be honest John had cookie problem when I installed the URL addon and thought I had resolved it. Too many customers having this issue. I have disabled the Seo Urls 5 addon and problem appears to have gone! Also had number of customers on site almost double the moment I turned Seo Urls 5 URL addon off! Only problem now is the Addon has left code in the store than needs to be manually removed and DB needs to be edited! Anyone installing this need to be careful as uninstall in not simple!
  2. When checking whos online in admin I am seeing guest logins with this " /cookie_usage.php " as the last page clicked URL! Its happening quite a few times, Should this be somthing a guest see as normal? I thought it was an error page! It apperes to be mainly from .fr and .de IP addresses. Its been happening all morning. Why would they allways get /cookie.usage.php as last click?
  3. EDITED Problem is not showing in my stock Edge.

    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".
  5. Ok got to bottom of this, my mistake Config file setup wrong! I had, define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'https://www.xxxxxx.com'); define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'https://www.xxxxx.com'); define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/'); changed to this and it works fine, define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', '.www.xxxxxx.com'); define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', '.www.xxxxx.com'); define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/');
  6. Sorry too early to think! with set to false, I get the id on all page. It was set to True to make the URls short. However customers complaind they could not buy! They said cookies are on but still get error. I too only get the error page with it set to true. Making it false goes back to long Urls,
  7. I am having a problem when “Force Cookie Use” is set to true, I set it to true so that the URLs would not have the long “osCsid=5c06d7bc7dc631eb69d799df138a52bb” attached to the urls. However when “Force Cookie Use” is set to true customers can no longer buy from the store! All they get is a warning page saying please turn on your cookies! I have checked my self and I have cookies enabled in my browser but it still only gives this warning page. Anyone else had this problem or is there a known solution that I have not found?

    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.

    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.
  11. I have not had the problem again so far. So am leaving it as is for now.
  12. This is just an observation but I have noticed my sites slowing down at times and sitting with this notice at bottom of browser, it would appear they are having difficulty get on the fa server! Anyone else seeing this?
  13. Just spotted a posiable problem in product info page, When you hover over the image and the hover text pops up the text is messing up when " is used. It appeares to add \" into the text. Only happens on the product info page. Hover text is fine on same image in all other pages. Is this a known issue?
