  1. @@altoid,


    Sorry, I don't understand, the shipping module doesn't need to be uninstalled and reinstalled, just replaced. there is no new configuration entry.

    Do you get any error for: MODULE_CONTENT_SC_SHIPPING_TITLE ?


    Or do you not have the original ship in cart add-on installed? It's supposed you have.


    Do not have the ship in cart installed on the uniserver.  I'll work on this.

  2. @@Dan Cole and others,


    Here the 2-3 page checkout for testing:


    Not a full package:


    1. uninstall "Checkout" shopping cart module

    2. upload and replace the 2 included modules: cm_sc_checkout.php and cm_sc_shipping.php

    3. In: checkout shipping.php at the top below



    // Ship in Cart Begin
    if (defined('MODULE_CONTENT_SC_CHECKOUT_STATUS') && defined('MODULE_CONTENT_SC_CHECKOUT_LINK') && MODULE_CONTENT_SC_CHECKOUT_LINK != 'checkout_shipping.php' ) tep_redirect(tep_href_link('shopping_cart.php', '', 'SSL'));
    // Ship in Cart End

    4. Install again "Checkout" shopping cart module.

    5. Select: Checkout button Link => checkout_payment.php


    Please Test

  3. Thanks for working on this Jim.  Will test eventually here.  We're still in the holiday mode with post Christmas parties, family and family gatherings etc for a while.  :)

    I would appreciate any and all bug reports. @@nepm, @@burt, and anybody else who has some time, please test this. I'd like to get it in shape to release before the USPS drops their next bomb, or soon afterwards if possible. I'm going to keep working on it, but I can't do everything.




  4. Until I get my attachments issue taken care of, what I can tell you is a lot of the 302s are looking for urls with parameters like sort, page, etc.  These probably aren't google or bing because have my webmaster tools set up to ignore those parameters.  Over the past 24 hours url redirects picked up over 150 new urls as 302s. I'm currently fixing these with phpMyAdmin. It's quicker that way for me.

  5. I updated my url redirects add on to the latest and then downloaded the file.  It was delimited by semicolon, so that's how I imported it.  It worked fine, putting the fields into columns in Excel.


    I then saved the file as csv.  Is that the correct format for uploading?


    Also, when uploading, is the data processed as an update query?  Meaning if I have only 10 records I want to update, can I upload just those?  Or do I have to upload the entire file, with changes to just the 10 records?


    I don't want to upload just 10 records and lose thousands already in place.



  6. Just as an FYI, here's an example of what the log is capturing from URL redirects regarding products.




    I am seeing a lot of these.


    I'm pretty sure it's not customers, but whatever the source I have no idea what the products were in that they were probably deleted long ago.


    So I decided how to handle these is a 301 redirect to the home page, or / for the new url on the url redirects page.

  7. I will upload the latest version this week and work with the csv download / upload to see how that goes.  Thanks




    I have just rewrited the csvExpImp for better compatibility

    Here is

    very usefull for all excell users.
    when you edited the file save into CSV (MS-DOS) mode!


    Well, the new compatibility mode should be CSV (comma-separated values) and double qouted strings as phpMyAdmin do the same by default.

    Which SEO urls addons You have? Chemos's? 

    Did You have any problems after installing this addon?

    I have Chemos's SEO urls and product_info.php page I can see only with Add cPath to product URLs? option enabled.


    I am currently using Chemo's version.  I've had not problems directly with the url redirects related to that as far as I have observed and have been using url redirects for a long time, since it was in the beta version.


    Checking my configuration for SEO URLS all options/setting look to be there.

  9. Hi all,


    next release is pushed on. Nothing to do only upload admin files and hit the url redirection menu.




    There is a wildcard * solution for more redirections in one step. Did you see it?

    Does csv downloads/uploads work for you?



    I've gotten so used to using phpMyAdmin for url redirect management I really haven't worked with the csv much.  But I did try a download a couple days ago, it rendered with semi-colon delimiters and not a csv type that places each field into an Excel column, but I'll revisit that again for testing purposes.

    -p-526.html is a frequently fake URL? I think this link would not be so important if no product name. Maybe a bad link from product description?


    If you dont know the source of the link than try at google administration tool where you could find a link source help.




    Thanks for the info.  I'm not sure the source but this particular shop goes back years online and I've changed categories locations etc. a lot so it's no surprise to me now how many bad urls exist out there for this shop.  Not necessarily all google.


    Whatever is indexing some of these, has bad urls going back years.  For example I discontinued a product line several years ago, and even now those urls are showing up in url redirects.


    I'm fixing them with the url redirect add on.  Having the capability to do this with categories and products is a big deal to me so I'm glad you put this together.  :thumbsup:


    One other note, for my situation I've found it much more convenient to manage many url redirect changes via phpMyAdmin via update queries.  Just FYI on that.

  11. Here's an example of a 302 status for a product I once had in the shop.  




    Looking through my database, I don't see that product ID, so I assume it's been deleted.  In this case because I don't know what it was, I can't accurately redirect to another product or category.


    So I'll probably set it at 410 status with the new url of /http_error.php

  12. What will be with the human navigation on a blank page?


    Redirection would be better to another page. We can use messagestack to give some information for humans.


    I think in most cases a redirect to another page would work. In fact would that not be better for search engine SEO? A 301 vs say a 404 or 410?


    But for those instances where a product or category simply are no longer available in any form on a website, I'd think a message saying 


    "Sorry but the page you are looking for is not available at [shop Name}


    Please feel free to view our other items.


    You may search here [searchbox for Shops Products and Categories}"


    Or something like that.   :)

    The ability to redirect products handy.  However when I set up an 410 server error for a deleted product,  I am taken to a blank page, rather than a 410 error page with some sort of explanation for the human visitor.


    Checking logs, the correct 410 server error is generated, so that's a good thing.


    So for human visitors would not a error page with an explanation be better?


    I suppose another alternative would be to 301 redirect a deleted product to some other appropriate page on the website be it another product or even to a category.


    What are you thoughts?






    Sorry i forgot to show product_info.php code reorganization for redirections.

  14. Apparently, over the years every time I reorganized my shop listings, such as changing  or relocating categories, that caused issues with google and other search engines because there was no 301 redirects done for the changes.  @@Gergely offered the beta version, which allowed me to identify redirect problems and change them to valid url with a proper 301 redirect.   :thumbsup:


    I just updated to the new release.
