    Information Pages SEO addon

    Thank you for posting it. I will take a look at it when I get a chance. But, to be clear, the original code allows cross-referencing to any page, depending on the settings for the IP page. So your change has removed that functionality.
  2. This addon allows the easy creation and handling of pages from within admin as well as a way to manage text on any page in the shop. It is based on the Information Pages Unlimited addon that has been around for years. While much of the code is different in this version, I wanted to keep the compatibility with the original version, thus the similar name. NOTE: There are three sets of files in this package, for different versions of oscommerce. The BS version is the only one that has all of the new features. The other two versions are improvements over the original code but nowhere near that which is in the BS version. So any instructions or descriptions may apply to the other versions but are mainly meant for the BS version. This version fixes many coding mistakes in the other version and adds many new features making it easier to use and more powerful. Some of the features are: - Has a Box ID setting that allows you to control where the link to the page shows up. So, for example, if there are four footer modules installed, each could have links specific to them. - A link can have sub-links (currently only available in the included module). So there could be a main link for widgets and sub-links for various kinds of widgets. There are two advantages to this: first, it takes up less room when there are many links and, second, the search engines will still be able to get to the pages.- There is a quick view button to allow displaying the page in a browser to check the changes. - There are quick fill options that allows categories and products to be added to a page with just a short statement. For example, if your site sells automobile parts and you are creating a new page about tires, you just need to type in PNAME(tires)PNAME and links for all of the products in your shop with tires in the name will be added to the page. See the Notes section on the editor page for additional methods. - Allows setting the browser title and meta tags while editing the page in admin (only if Header Tags SEO is installed).

    No, you should get an email when the script runs, even if it can't connect to the other server. It might be that your host setup the cron job to hide is output, which is common for many cron jobs. If they did, that needs to be removed since it blocks the output from the script.

    HoneyPot Captcha

    This addon prevents multiple emails from being sent through the forms on the site by adding a hidden challenge. Sending emails through the forms is a favorite thing to do by spammers. This has traditionally been handled by Googles Recaptcha code but that causes too much of a challenge in many cases and can easily frustrate your customers. This code doesn't present a challenge for the customer at all. The checking is done without the customer even knowing it. The code will work in any version of oscommerce but the instructions are just for the Community Edition and just for the contact us page (due to time constraints).

    HoneyPot Captcha

    The new account message says it is a violation but it usually isn't. It wasn't worth the effort to change the text to read differently for that one item. Some shops owners don't like to be notified on first account creations, thus the setting in the Pro version. But ou may want to take a look at the actual accounts to see if there is anything in them that should have been caught, like numbers in a name. If there is, then post the details of the account along with your HP settings and I will take a look.

    You should see a delete box and a submit button below that text. If you don't, do you see the log entries below it? If you don't see anything after that text, then there is a fatal error on the page and you would need to look at the error log to see what it is.

    It's in option in the Pro version not in the free one. See here.

    Attribute Images

    There is this one that may be what you want but it is probably not compatible with Phoenix. But the person that uploaded it is @14steve14and he's active here so maybe he has a newer version.

    HoneyPot Captcha

    Yes, there should be. I can see I never included that part. Run this command to add it after changing the group ID to whichever number you are using. I do apologize for the problems this caused you. INSERT INTO `configuration_group` (`configuration_group_id`, `configuration_group_title`, `configuration_group_description`, `sort_order`, `visible`) VALUES ('16', 'Honey Pot', 'Settings for Honey Pot', '20', '1')

    USPS Rate V4, Intl Rate V2 (official support thread)

    I tried it here and the rates are showing on the delivery page. Did you enter an account number and zip code in the settings? Is the address on your shop account valid? You may need to uninstall/install again.

    If you are not seeing them in admin->Configuration, then you will need to look at the configuration_group and configuration tables in the database to see what went wrong.

    @rupruprupThe code you mentioned is not part of this addon. Please post your question in the support thread for whatever addon you are using.

    @dculleyThe problem is that the commas are being changed to semi-colons for some reason. Since I don't have to much time to work on this, I added code to convert them as needed. It's a sloppy fix but seems to work. Please give it a try. usps.php

    Did you run the database install script? If you did, did you change the ID as mentioned in the instructions?

    HoneyPot Captcha

    @Philip79I just checked and the instructions for an MS2 shop don't mention that location. I will change the text in the usage file in the next version to mention it there..

    Sitemap SEO

    @artfulwebI'm glad his fix worked but it should not be necessary. I don't have the addons you mentioned installed in a 1.0.7.1 shop but none of them alter that variable. Since I can't cause the warning, I can't find the cause of it. But if you need the fix, I suggest the following instead of what was posted since his fix will allow a needless database call to be made and an extra <div></div> to be added to the page. To apply the change I suggest, change if (!isset($_GET['manufacturers_id']) && SITEMAP_SEO_SHOW_INDIVIDUAL_CATEGORY_SITEMAP == 'true') { to if (! empty($current_category_id) && !isset($_GET['manufacturers_id']) && SITEMAP_SEO_SHOW_INDIVIDUAL_CATEGORY_SITEMAP == 'true') {

    @artfulwebThe $current_category_id is a core variable and should be set for all category and product pages. It appears to be not set in your installation for some reason, though I can't think of a reason why. You can add this line above the one you mentioned echo 'ID '. $cat['id'] . ' - ' . $current_category_id . '<br>'; That should display all of the category ID's in your shop as well as the current category ID. They should all be numbers or strings like 1_4. If not, there is something unique to your shop that is causing the problem. In that case, you can install a test shop and just install this addon in it. Assuming it works, you can then compare your files to find out what is causing the problem.

    The BOX_HEADING_HONEYPOT is defined in the admin's english.php file, or whichever language you are using. You don't mention changing that so I'm guessing that is the problem. As for the settings, they are in admin->Configuration->Honey Pot.

    There's really no way to do that without hurting the site. Is there a reason why you want to?

    Sitemap SEO

    @artfulwebYes, I understood what you were saying but I can't duplicate it here. I clicked all around the site but never got a warning. Are you using a non-English language? I only have English in my test shop so that might be it. Also, did you go to page control for this addon and click update? That is required to initialize it.

    @artfulwebI just did a quick install of 7.1 and installed this addon but I'm not getting any warnings. What are you doing to see the failure?
  23. Jack_mcs

    Sitemap SEO

    I don't have it installed in that version but try changing this line to if (! isset($cat['id']) || (strpos($cat['id'], (string)$current_category_id) === FALSE)) continue; Please let me know if it works so I can add it to the next version.
  24. I'm sorry but I can't provide specific coding help like that in a support thread.

    I made some changes in the attached file. It is still not right but I don't have too much spare time to spend on it at the moment. Hopefully it will get you a little closer. usps.php
