    Jack_mcs got a reaction from domiosc in Header Tags SEO   
    A new version has been uploaded with these changes:
    Added social icon for blogspot. Changed open graph price code to work with other languages. Found by member milerwan. Changed the Curently Viewing code to properly show for all pages. Changed the Phoenix code to merge some of the code and database entries with that included in the stock shop. Corrected mistakes in the database installed script. Replaced the update button in Fill Tags to work with later versions of Phoenix. Removed testing code for the Version Checker. Found by member @koopmanh. Updated one of the update text files to fix mistakes. Found by member @demitry. Updated the social icons - changed sumbleupon to mix. Note: This is mainly an update for Phoenix, specifically version 1.0.7.3. If you are using Frozen, there are some changes that may fix a few problems. But if you are using Phoenix but not 1.0.7.3, then this update won't apply to your shop. It could work but some of the stock files have been moved in 1.0.7.3 and it takes too much time to try to provide all of the possible changes. So if you want to install this version, which has many improvements, make the changes to the files in catalog manually, after adjusting the path, and it will work fine.
    The main focus of this update it to merge the stock SEO code with the more powerful options provided by this addon. With this version, all Phoenix shops can now take advantage of the extra options this addon adds.  This version also fixes a coding error in all stock Phoenix shops. So there's no downside now to installing this addon while there are many benefits.
    Important: Be sure to use the headertags_seo_db_handler_hybrid.php database file if you have a 1.0.7.3 shop. If it gives an option to reset, click on that. For all other shops, use the headertags_seo_db_handler.php file.

    That is the situation with all addons. Most of the new ones for Phoenix don't even have a Frozen version, much less pre-Frozen versions. I've always tried to include versions for all shops in my addons but that is going away. Even now, I don't have the time to test Frozen versions and may stop supporting all pre-Phoenix versions. I offer paid support for them but trying to code for all shops in the free versions just takes too much time.

    It's a common problem for all oscommerce shops. You just need to change the permissions settings for the configure files. If you use this format on google, you can find answers to many of your questions, which may be faster than posing here:
    site:forums.oscommerce.com "search term here"
    Here is the result of the above search.

    Good luck. However, the usual cause of the slowdown isn't due to the server. It is almost always due to data skimmers. 1200 a day is higher than many sites but not a great deal. We have hosting members that have over 3500, and that's on a shared server. The difference is that those sites block the data skimmers. If you don't have View Counter installed, I suggest you install it. If you are saving by moving to a Cloud VPS, then you should do so. But I'm not sure it will prevent your slowness.

    1) There is a version for "Before 2.3". I don't recall I updated it for this version. Probably not. With Phoenix becoming more and more popular and with it changing often, managing multiple versions is just not possible any longer, at least for me. If you need an addon to work for older versions, you can 
    Use an older version. This is not a good idea since you will lose fixes and improvements. Convert the code to work with an older version. Pay someone to do the conversion. 2) This got through because of lack of time for testing older versions. To fix it, you can replace 
    <td align="center"> <?php echo tep_draw_bootstrap_button(IMAGE_UPDATE, 'fas fa-save', null, 'primary', null, 'btn-success btn-block btn-lg'); ?> </td> with
    <td align="center"><?php echo tep_image_submit('button_update.gif', IMAGE_UPDATE);?></td> 3) I'm not able to reproduce this but in searching for it, it seems to be a bug in php 7.1 and, maybe 7.2. I'm running 7.3 so it seems they fixed that problem. Applying the change below should prevent it but since I can't see the warning, I can't be sure. Change this line
    $dateOrder = date("Y-m-d", time() - ($config['orphan_orders'] * 86400)); to
    $dateOrder = date("Y-m-d", time() - (int)($config['orphan_orders'] * 86400));

    Jack_mcs got a reaction from havenadvisersnz in Upgrading to the latest version   
    It seems like every other question posted nowadays is about how to upgrade an older version of oscommerce and the op usually references the official version. This post is meant to provide a quick reference for how to convert an older shop to the current, recommended, one.
     
    First, the version that should be used is commonly called the Bootstrap, BS or Responsive version. It can be located here. One should not use the official version. The official version can be installed via the hosts control panel so it is easy to think that is the one to use - it is not.
     
    Since the BS version is not directly compatible with other versions, the following steps will be needed:
    Install the BS version into a new location Convert the database. See this thread for help with that. Install whatever addons the site needs. You need to be sure the addon will work with the BS version. This thread mentions specific ones but there are many others that will work. If in doubt, ask in the support thread for the addon in question. If you intend to use paypal, then install the Paypal App. At this point you should have a working shop. Test it thoroughly, especially the payment and shipping modules, before going live with it.
     
    When you are ready to go live,
    Mark your current shop as down for maintenance ( a simple index.html file is fine for this purpose ). Make a backup of the current shops database and files. Convert the database to the BS version. Replace all of the files with the new shops files. Edit the configure files so they work as the live shop. Remove the blocking page. If everything has gone correctly, the conversion should be complete.

    Jack_mcs got a reaction from ArtcoInc in Class 'ot_subtotal' not found in ...   
    I think you need to add DIR_FS_CATALOG back into the include statements (the two above). So they would be 
    include(DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'includes/... That causes them to look in the shop files. The way you have it now, the code is looking in the admin files.

    Jack_mcs got a reaction from ralgiere in Google is not indexing my website   
    @ralgierePlease see my PM regarding the link. Also, you are doing something called "keyword stuffing" in the meta keywords tag. That is where any keyword you can think of is placed in that tag. Google doesn't use the tag but they do look at it and if the keywords are not mentioned in the text on the page, they may lower the ranking for that page or, in severe cases, block the page and/or site. So you need to correct that.

    Jack_mcs got a reaction from DivebombInc in Excludes based on page   
    Yes, that is possible but it would require adding code in several places. But if you just want a page to display images, using a product page isn't the best way to do it. There are addons for that purpose. You will need to find one that works with your version of oscommerce.

    How do you know you are being blocked? Did you get a message or is it just that you are not seeing your site when checking google?  You should login to your webmaster tools account, or create one if you don't have one. If it is a new account, it might be a while before they visit the site but it is usually within days. You may also want to look at this page.

    You don't need to make any changes to get google to crawl your site. There are many changes you can make to improve what gets listed and how well it ranks but the actual listing is done without any effort, assuming your site has not been banned by them. To see what they have listed, use this to search on google:  site:your url
