    product reviews google indexing

    It's normal for google to de-index product review URLs for the reason i gave above. Once the review page becomes populated with reviews this changes and google will then index the page(s) again. If you are going to have a canonical tag then this <link rel="canonical" href="https://www.site.com.au/product_reviews.php?products_id=551" /> is the correct tag to place. You should also bear in mind the page parameter. If you have many reviews for the same product causing pagination then the page parameter should be included in the canonical tag. As far as title tags for reviews are concerned, yes those should be unique.

    product reviews google indexing

    I find that very strange, and if true can only be due to something in your script causing it. Google selecting reviews.php as the canonical for more than a thousand of your individual product review pages? Does not sound logical, and i have never seen that before.

    product reviews google indexing

    "my product_reviews (over 1000) have been de-indexed by google as google is recognizing product_reviews.php as the canonical tag." This is not possible, unless you are (unintentionally) specifying the canonical as such. Even if you specified the canonical as such, Google nowadays has its' own idea of what the canonical URL should be. You can confirm this now with the new URL INSPECTION TOOL in the new webmaster interface. Typically, Google will see a product review page as a soft 404 - if there is no actual review - and then proceed to drop that URL from the index. Unless you can do some coding, I would recommend not using a canonical tag. The stock osCommerce one is a mess, and should not be used.

    Just installed - URL won't go to index?

    Check your configure files - there's 2 of them - one on the catalog side and one one the admin side. See if you can correct the paths there.
  6. if ( tep_session_is_registered('customer_id') ) { log off link } else { my account link }
  7. the breadcrumb is an ordered list, it outputs like <ol class="breadcrumb"> <li>...</li> <li>...</li> </ol> Your myaccount link is a <li> in the list, and looks like <li><a href="myaccount"></li>. The problem is to float that link right, you will have to introduce code or CSS to target just that one <li> in the list. So the question is does it have to be in the breadcrumb trail, or can it be above or below it, because that will be easy to achieve.
  8. Yes there are people with knowledge of BS4. The main advantage of BS4 over BS3 is the incorporation of flexbox. I don't see a lot of that being used in the template on the demo site. Plus overall, BS4 is a much refined framework compared to BS3.

    Forum Software Update (31st July 2018)

    How come the last post link works intermittently (for me at least.) ? Clicking on the last post link on the forum home pages used to take you to the last post in the thread, now it goes straight to the first page of the thread - or does it not work like that anymore.

  12. Those are the parameters of the tep_image function as found in the html_output.php //// // The HTML image wrapper function function tep_image($src, $alt = '', $width = '', $height = '', $parameters = '', $responsive = true, $bootstrap_css = '') { if ( (empty($src) || ($src == 'images/')) && (IMAGE_REQUIRED == 'false') ) { return false; }

    2.3.4 Bootstrap admin - too many redirects

    that may be the reason for you redirects. you don't put that code in admin htaccess - it goes in the catalog side htaccess.

    It's ok if the OP wants sliders Actually the most disturbing thing was the price of that jigsaw - did not want to say at first - glad that's been clarified.

    Congratulations on what you have achieved thus far. I have to agree with the above poster, i think the sliders are a bit too much. On the large screen and xl screens the left column content appears squashed.
