  1. What could make www.mydomain.com/category-cat-c27?osCsid.html not work?

     

    P.S: WAIT!!!

     

    I think I know why the link along with the two others of its type might not work, but I'll need your assistance.

     

     

    The original link does not link directly to a category, but redirects/points to a category in my store: www.domain.com/index.php?cPath=27.


  2. The code doesn't know if it is the first click or the 2nd. If it works fine all of the other times, there is something wrong with your shops configuration. See this thread for help with setting it up.

     

    "It's how osCommerce works" as you said last time regarding part one of the problem (long URL).

     

    The long URL problem I've decided to ignore, because you said it could be alleviated by "preventing spider session," which I enabled.

     

     

     

     

    BUT the second part of the problem I cannot ignore.

     

    Let me elaborate for you.

     

    Ultimate SEO tries to redirect a link on my template osCommerce.

     

    The first time that it does so for a first-time visitor (or one who has cleared browser cache),

     

    the link, which is among two others of its type that also have the same problem, does not render correctly.

     

    Instead of a html page, for example: www.mydomain.com/category-cat-c27.html,

     

    the URL that is rendered is as follows: www.mydomain.com/category-cat-c27.html?osCsid.html

     

    The part in bold is the problem -- it makes the rendered page broken/nonexistent.

     

    The second time and so on, presumably after caching, the URL is the first one I mentioned (www.mydomain.com/category-cat-c27.html),

     

    and there are no broken links.

     

    There is nothing wrong with my shop's configuration, because in my backup of my store without Ultimate SEO installed, the link, along with the two others of its type,

     

    work correctly without broken pages.


  3. Help! I got a serious problem.

     

    Every time I shut down my computer OR

     

    I clear my browser's cache,

     

    the FIRST time I click a link on my site,

     

    the URL is long, for example: www.domain.com/category1/?osCsid=l7p9sjkl8mk681hkvehksa3ef4.

     

    I KNOW I already mentioned this before. BUT,

     

    here is a related problem:

     

    By doing the same procedure (turn off computer or clear browser cache),

     

    and clicking another link type/area (picture/button links - 3 of them),

     

    not only do I get a URL along the lines of www.domain.com/category--c-27?osCsid.html,

     

    but also the page is broken. Oops! This link appears to be broken (Firefox).

     

    The second time and so forth that I click anything, everything is fine.


  4. I got a problem. When I click on any product on my site, I get:

     

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare do_magic_quotes_gpc() (previously declared in /home/site/public_html/site/includes/functions/compatibility.php:18) in /home/site/public_html/site/includes/functions/compatibility.php on line 30


  5. I've finished installing this addon though I skipped parts that weren't in my template-version files.

     

    When I click "test" in admin, I get this diagnosis:

    The Header Tags head code for the product_reviews.php file cannot be found.

    The Header Tags head code for the product_reviews_info.php file cannot be found.

    The Header Tags head code for the product_reviews_write.php file cannot be found.

    The Header Tags head code for the specials.php file cannot be found.

     

    I don't recall the catalog_install instructing me to add the code to the above files.


  6. Hi, I'm using a osCommerce template, so my index.php file is altered and I can't find some parts from the catalog_readme that need to be replaced. You have suggested to skip it. If I skip some of those parts that needed to be replaced or added to, how seriously will this addon be affected in performance/effectiveness? Thanks


  7. I did go through all the instructions. I meant that when I tried generating the sitemap via domain.com/googlesitemap/index.php, the "[an error occurred while processing this directive]" comes up in the browser. I've set all the permissions to 777.

     

    Oh yes, I forgot to mention. When I go through the process in localhost, everything is just fine. But on my webhost (Bluehost), I get the above problem. If that helps.


  8. I went through all the instructions in the readme, and then when I get to the last step (go to domain.com/googlesitemap/index.php), an error occurs -

    "[an error occurred while processing this directive]" comes up in the browser. I've set all the permissions to 777, so I don't know why I'm getting this problem.


  9. Hi, Jack,

    My site is RC1, could I directly install this addon or should I upgrade it to RC2 before I install this? Thanks!

     

     

    This is the support thread for the new Header Tags SEO contribution. It is based on the Header Tags Controller but is not compatible.

     

    Why the new name?

    There are a couple of reasons for this. First, so much has changed in the code that it is mostly a different package and maintaining it would be difficult if it were considered just an update. But beyond that, a lot of people mistakenly confuse the Header Tags Controller as just a meta tags handler. It is that but has gone beyond that basic function for some time now. So to compare it to the other meta tags contributions is just wrong. And I should say here that if all you are looking for is a way to handle the meta tags of your shop, you should not install this contribution since it is definitely overkill. But when you consider that the keywords meta tag is rarely used by google at all nowadays, I can't imagine why someone would want to install a package that relied on that tag so much. And that is the real reason for the new name. This contribution is the only one of its kind to tie together so many Search Engine Optimization (SEO) tricks, that the new namejust made sense.

     

    What's the difference?

    The following are the major changes (or the ones I could remember) in this new

    contribution:

     

    -> The code is 100% langage compliant.

    -> Removed the english/header_tags.php file in favor of database entries.

    -> Fixed a bug introduced in a previous version. A spelling mistake would make Page Control fail in some cases. I only mention this here because it was a nasty little bug I could never locate. So anyone having that problem should consider upgrading.

    -> Added control options to admin->Configuration.

    -> Added additional meta tag options. It is doubtful these will be used that much but a number of requests were received for this option so it was added.

    -> Added an option to view the title and meta tags on the actual web page from admin.

    -> Added Social Bookmark code.

    -> Added code to apply mouseover text to the sites logo - unique for each page.

    -> Added code to have the breadcrumb use the header tags titles.

    -> Added an exclude list in admin/includes/functions/header_tags.php that prevents header tags code from being added to certain files (like checkout pages). This is because those pages don't need tags and excluding them will simplify matters.

    -> Added option to Page Control and Fill Tags so that the keywords can be dynamically generated from the pages on the site. Currently, the code only supports single keywords but I plan on changing that. There is an option in admin to only pick keywords that fall within the keyword density settings.

    -> Added an automatic page add feature. You still have to edit the actual file in the root but that's all.

    -> Added easy install instruction for STS shops. There is just one change to make and the two contribution work together.

    -> Added code to have the new features work with BTS based shops. There may be a few cases where an option doesn't work due to how BTS handles the files, but they should be minimal and not anything to cause a great stir.

    -> Changed how title, description and keywords are built. This should provide more flexibility for those that want that option. Each item has a sort order and is displayed in the string of text based on that sort order. So, for example, the title of a page can contain some entered text, the default title and the category and manufacturers names (if applicable), in any order.

    -> Added an Un-Install file to completely remove Header Tags from the database. This should make testing and troubleshooting easier.

    -> Added code to use curl instead of standard php file calls. The code will try curl first and then switch to a file command if it is not present.

    -> Tested in MS2, RC2, STS and BTS shops.

  10. I noticed that the first time I click a link on my site after installation, the URL is not a shortened URL; a URL like this comes up: http://www.somedomai...m/category.html?osCsid=0nq20ba91o9jjkide9t6ed5td7.

     

    The second time and so forth that I click any link on my site, the URL is as intended - for example http://somedomain.com/category.html.

     

    The same problem of the aforementioned long URL happens every time I clear my browser's cache, I've noticed.

     

    Is this something that is intended by Ultimate SEO? Or have I not installed Ultimate SEO properly? If it is intended by Ultimate SEO, will it negatively affect search engine crawlers' indexing?

     

    It is how oscommerce works. Be sure you have the prevent spider option set to true in your sessions settings in admin and that you have updated your spiders file (found in the addons section) and there won't be any problems.

     

    Hi, thanks for the reply.

     

    Could you tell me what the "prevent spider" option does to fix the problem?

     

    Also, where is the addons section located so that I can update the spider file?

     

    So, osCommerce is supposed to generate long URLs like the example I gave, and what Ultimate SEO does is shorten the URL after the first time a link is clicked?

     

    Thanks


  11. Hi, I've installed Ultimate SEO.
