    Header Tags SEO

    Thanks for the help Jack. Went through this file line by line with the install and the finished files in the package. I fixed the box issue but I still have the center below the left column. Not the best but I really just need the text on the category page. Is it a major issue if the admin is out of alignment or is it just cosmetic?

    Header Tags SEO

    Hello Jack, Loaded up this contribution and am having an install problem. Been through the instructions twice each day over the last 3 days and can't figure it out. My problem is with the admin/catalog catagores/products. The center section is out of alignment underneath the left column and when I select edit in a category all I have is text for title, description, keywords, etc. where the boxes should be. Can you point me to an area that would cause these so I can try and figure this out? Thanks in advance. Steve
  3. Thanks John - that is what I have gone back to. I removed the Ajax version and use the standard AIM. Regards, Steve
  4. Hello Everyone, I installed this module tonight and am having a problem. I am using One Page Checkout and when the page loads - it loads the payment method box, shows credit card with no button and gives an error "There was an error setting payment method." The only thing I can gather is that this contribution is not compatible with one page checkout. If so - does anyone know how to modify it to work with OPC? If it can't be - what is everyone using for reducing the 4 page checkout process to one? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hello Bill, I've tried using another FTP software and have done this 3 times this morning. I have the same issue. Any other ideas on how to resolve this? Thanks, Steve

    [Contribution] STS v4

    Hello Bill, This is a clean upload - meaning I'm startting from an empty directory. I delete everything out when I reload. Everything else works properly. I am not using the hosts version of osC. Normally I load osC from this site and install it - then load up the changed files. Everything appears to be in the correct place and when you view it from Filezilla or the host file manager they appear to have the correct code in them. If I load osC wihout any contributions- the module functions work correctly. When load the changes for STS - they stop working. My particulars are - FTP software - Filezilla 3.3.4.1. osC is 2.2 RC2a PHP is 5.2.14 MySQL is 5.1.45 I will try in the morning using the hosts File Manager FTP software. I have reloaded dozens of times now so I'm not sure if it is a bad file upload. I may have a bad file but which one? I get no errors in the server logs when this happens. Unfortunately- it prevents me from configuring shipping so I can't complete a checkout on the site. Thanks again for your help.

    [Contribution] STS v4

    I'm having a problem with the admin side that I can't figure out. I've narrowed it down to STS - meaning it works without STS and the only contribution I installed is STS and it has this problem. My site worked fine on my local host - wamp server, Apache 2.2.11 (win32), php 5.2.11, and mysql 5.1.36. My ISP is using Apache 1.3.41(Unix), PHP 5.2.6 and mysql 5.1.45. Once I upload, the site admin/modules shows the modules I've installed but does not allow me to configure them. It has the install button and when pressed - looks like it is trying to process but nothing happens. The directory location for the module is shown in the center part of the screen. I have started from a fress install twice now - works fine locally and when I move to the ISP - it dies. I have checked the permissions, directory structure, etc. several times and had my ISP check them. All seems ok. On the last fresh install it works with just OSc 2.2 and when I add in STS it has this problem. My ISP is telling me that it is an issue with fastCGI. I'm not a php person so I would not know how to look at that. Has anyone else experienced this and have any idea how to solve it? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hello Everyone, Got a relatively new shop and have been looking for a new checkout process. I have found 2 one page processes that don't seem to work with STS. Does anyone know of a simple way to modify the checkout process so that it will work with STS? Is it just best to create a template for each page and keep the 4 steps or can it be done in one page? Thanks in advance for any help. Steve

    Multi_Vendor_Shipping new thread

    Hello Jim - thanks for pointing me in the right direction. There's not a lot on the STS board about it - but I did figure it out from what they had. Figured I would post it here to help everyone. Basically you have to create an exception from your templates to get the popup to work correctly. In order to do that you have to go into includes\modules\sts\sts_default.php and find (it was on line 43 in my file): if (strstr($scriptbasename, "popup")|| strstr($scriptbasename, "info_shopping_cart")) return ''; // We don't use template for these scripts Insert code as shown using the name of file you want to exclude from your template: if (strstr($scriptbasename, "popup")|| strstr($scriptbasename, "file_to_exlude.php") || strstr($scriptbasename, "info_shopping_cart")) return ''; // We don't use template for these scripts So to remove the template styles from the shipping estimator popup I changed the code to: if (strstr($scriptbasename, "popup")|| strstr($scriptbasename, "products_ship_estimator.php") || strstr($scriptbasename, "info_shopping_cart")) return ''; // We don't use template for these scripts Hope this helps others figure it out if they have the same problem.

    Multi_Vendor_Shipping new thread

    I just installed MVS 1.1. I am also using STS4 and when I press the shipping estimator button, I get my STS template with $contents on it. Do I need a separate template for the shipping estimator? Or have I got something wrong on the setup? I have been through it twice and can't find anything. Thanks in advance Steve

    Hello Bill, In post 3755 you said there was a flow chart for how STS looks for templates in the user guide. I couldn't find it in the user guide and since the post is a few years old figured it was removed for some reason. Is the chart still available? Thanks,

    Maybe - some work right and some do not. If I check the link to get the post number - I can find the post. If I just go through the link - many times I'm a page off, but sometimes they are dozens of pages off. Not a major issue as I now know how to deal with it.

    Thanks Multimixer - helps alot. I also learned that links don't work to well on this board. Best to use the topic number and go from there.

    Thanks Bill - may be a newbie with OSC but it is apparent who the experts are and who helps. :) Regarding the link - maybe I have been at this to long but I didn't see anything about template names on that page or 4 or 5 on either side. If its the right link - I'll look again in the morning with fresh eyes. I just took the content tag out to see if I could get the page to change. Figured that was the easiest way to "see" what was happening. In practice I will probably just put text in above the content for the category. Thanks again for your help.

    Structure Question

    Thanks - probably easier to just say post your question in the correct thread. I thought I was posting under STS V4 and apparently got it wrong. I have reposted there but thanks for the help on how to use Google. Steve

    Structure Question

    Hello everyone - first time STS user here. I am prefacing this by saying this is probably user errror but I can't figure it out. I've been through the installation, this board and the docs. I think the issue is terminology but I'm lost. I have installed the contribution and it works properly. However, I am trying to add a new page for a product category. As I'm trying to learn this - I took existing template 60 and just want to put in a new category page. Figured its best just to see how it works before I go to advanced. I have installed index and product info in admin. All folders are the defaults. I took the existing sts_template.html page from catalog\includes\sts_templates\freeosc_060 and added some HTML text at the top and removed $content. Saved it as the category name product_info.php_c25_27.html in the 60 template folder. sts_template.html is still in the original location. No luck and so I have been reading and trying new locations. First question - I have item 27 in category 25. The name of category page template should be product_info.php_c25_27.html or product_info.php_25_27.html? Do you need the c in front of the category? I have seen it both ways. Next question- I'm certain I am putting the template in the wrong directory. I keep reading about a content folder but don't have one in this template or in my catalog. STS_Templates is in catlog\includes. Do I need to create one and missed this step? Last question - I don't follow the admin folder setup - do I need to add new folders or if I use a default template just leave the defaults. Apologies for being dumb on this but I've spent about 2 days trying to figure it out and you would think I would get lucky and put something in the right place. Appreciate any help you can provide and thanks in advance. Steve

  19. Hello Carry, Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I am having the same issue and don't see where the wrong variable is. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Thanks Multimixer - I thought about this before your reply and just went the add link to the template route. I will try the mod in item 1 as that seems easier over the long haul. Thanks again for the information. Steve

    [Contribution] STS v4

    Hello - I have a question that seems relatively simple but I can't figure it out and can't find anything in this forum to solve it. Sorry if its obvious but I'm relatively new to this. I want to take the links in the $infobox and separate them in the footer of a template. I can't find a variable for them. So I assumed I could create one - basically if I can find the code where the variables are created/executed, copy and change the link. Then use $shipping instead of $infobox. Seems logical but can't follow it in the code. I have been through all the php modules and can't find them. How would I create a variable for Shipping & Returns, Privacy Notice, etc. or is there an easier way of putting these horizontally in a foother without the box heading? Thanks in advance for your reply. Steve

    Sitemap SEO

    Thanks again Jack for the quick reply. You certainly spend a lot of time helping people that are way under skilled dealing with this. So thanks for that. I do have others in there - and I have had problems with others. So I started with a clean install and put in STS first. I will then put in Sitemap and see if it works. I think that should remove anything from the equation. If I still have the problem I'll start fresh and just put in Sitemap. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks again.

    Sitemap SEO

    Hello Jack - thanks for the quick reply. I went through all steps of installation and had no problems. I used the automated script to change the DB. I checked all of the code changes side by side and they look correct. I did initialize the DB per the two instructions in install. I have not made any configuration changes and have not turned on infoboxes, pages, etc. So I can't shut them off. I tried turning them on one by one and had table missing errors. I'm assuming this is from not having another contribution installed for them. I am going down a list of basic contributions to install that I found on one of the boards - I think you put it out but can't remember - and haven't gotten to infopages yet. Any other ideas? Should I start over and install this first? Has anyone considered the order of installs - I could see this being a problem with file names already as there are different SEO or sitemap contributions. Thanks again for you help. Steve

    Sitemap SEO

    Hello - I'm new to oscommerce and PHP. I've installed the v1.7 of sitemap SEO on a local host. I've solved all of the problems I came up with but am totally lost on a link error. When I select the sitemap link from my index page I get: Error! Unable to determine the page link! I've been through all pages of this forum and other pages that have the same error. I have ensured the Use Search Engine Safe URL's is set to false. What else can I try? I saw one post on shutting off links but didn't understand that. Sorry to be new at this but I think I need a 3rd grade explanation. Thanks in advance for any help.
