    Social Bookmarks

    Hello Jack I am using Header Tags SEO, it is working fine, except for the social bookmarking. The links do not include the title of the page being bookmarked. For example the delicious link looks like this http://del.icio.us/post?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mydomain.com%2F&title= , it is the same for all links. I have seen other sites with the same problem. Could you please help me sort this out. Thank You.

    Canpar Shipping Mod

    I have installed the Canpar Shipping Module found here http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,4402 My store is located in Canada, and I would like to have it as a shipping option only for shipping to Canadian addresses. There is no option in the admin control panel. Is there a way to confique this for Canada only?

    Dynamic SiteMap

    I have osc v 2.2 RC2 with Ultimate SEO URLs v2.1d and Header Tags SEO V 3.1.5. I am looking to install a sitemap, but I don't know if I am ready to do that just yet. I have a session id problem. When I use an on-line sitemap generator, and spider simiulator I am having session id's spidered. I wanted to ask you if I should install sid killer, before I install this, or not? Does this sitemap prevent session id form being spidered? Also, want to ask if I want a google sitemap and a human readable sitemap do I need to install both Dynamic Sitemap and Google XML Sitemap SEO,? Or does Dynamic Sitemap do both? Thank You Larry

    Header Tags SEO

    I have installed Head Tags SEO v3.1.5. My problem is when viewing the meta tags in the source of the pages I have duplicate content tags in the header. The "Content-Type" meta tag appears twice in the header, at the beginning and at the end. One appears at the beginning of the meta tags <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"> <title>My Title Here</title> <meta name="Description" content="My description is here" /> <meta name="Keywords" content="My keywords are here" /> <meta name="googlebot" content="all" /> <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-US" /> <meta name="robots" content="noodp" /> <meta name="slurp" content="noydir" /> <meta name="revisit-after" content="1 days" /> <meta name="robots" content="index, follow" /> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" /> I am using STS, with the <!--$headcontent--> inserted in my template. If I remove the <!--$headcontent--> all the meta tags are removed, including both instances of the "Content-Type" meta tag. How can I solve this. Thank you.
  9. Installed Ultimate SEO URLs 2.1d ORIGINAL updated Jack_mcs 23 Nov 2008. Most of the uls work fine except the "Review" links in the side "Info Box". The review links work great on the product info pages, just not in the side info box. I have no idea what I need to modify to get this to work, any help appreciated. Thanks.
  10. Hi Jack, I have just installed your brilliant contribution and am finding my way around the settings in admin. My problem is when viewing the meta tags in the source of the pages I have duplicate content tags in the header. One appears at the beginning of the meta tags <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" /> and a second at the end of the meta tags. I have looked and looked but cannot find the issue. How can I correct this? Thank You

    2.1d ORIGINAL updated

    Ken thank you very much for your help. I see no change in the link after applying the changes you suggested. I have cleared my cache and refreshed the browser but no change, The are no error message either, just the same url. Perhaps it is because I am using STS. I would like to try your seo url solution. I know of, and have used your Header Tags For Novices, but I did not know you had a mod for seo urls. Could you please point me in the right direction Thank You Larry

    Header Tags for novices

    In your admin panel, under Tools / Define Languages / english.php find this or something similar // page title define('TITLE', STORE_NAME); the above is how my page title is set and 'STORE_NAME' displays my store name in my page titles. You can change this to anything you want. Hope this helps
  18. Yes Header Tags for Novices is compatible as well. This is the contribution I use with Ultimate SEO URLs, but only because I am using a template monster template, and I was unable to install Header Tags SEO by Jack_mcs. Header Tags For Novices is very easy to install, There is the option to manually enter a different title or description but you do not have to, it will use your products name and description by default.

  20. You are welcome Eric I am glad I was able to help. Yes you can leave it like that without any other changes. It has been my experience that some servers require "Options +FollowSymLinks", while others do not. If it works without it then that is the way your server is configured.
  21. Try removing the first line from your .htaccess file Options +FollowSymLinks
  22. Would someone please explain what the "Reciprocal Link Count" is for in the admin panel. I might be wrong but I am guessing this value would mean the number of times the script should check for the reciprocal link before it disables the link. I have the cron job set to run daily so if I set this value at "7" would that mean that the link would be disabled if not found on their site after 7 days?

    Title Tag

    I have this set in my index.php file <title><?php echo (strlen($title_tag) > 1) ? $title_tag . ' - ' . TITLE : $title_home_default . ' - ' . TITLE; ?></title> Is it possible to reverse the order in which this displays the title on the pages. How would I do this?

I have the parameters set for the image to display as 120 X 60, this works fine on the users end, but in the admin section the image displays as 105 X 105.
