    Google XML Sitemap SEO

    I don't get it, installation is quite easy: i ran the sql file using phpmyadmin, i copied to my catalog directory the 6 dummy xml files (and assigned 777 permission to all 6 of them), i copied the xsl file to my catalog directory (i left it as it was, 644 permission). Then i copied the googlesitemap directory (with all it's files) to my catalog directory. The results were as i posted them, either i choose standard or alternate, either if i choose "yes" or "no" at "Enable Diagnostic Output". /catalog/sitemapproducts.xml /catalog/sitemappages.xml /catalog/sitemapcategories.xml /catalog/sitemapmanufacturers.xml /catalog/sitemapspecials.xml /catalog/sitemapindex.xml /catalog/gss.xsl /catalog/googlesitemap/index.php /catalog/googlesitemap/sitemap.class.php /catalog/googlesitemap/sitemap.class_Alternate.php Where could my mistake be in my installation?

    With the alternate i got the same results. With the test option i don't know, because i didn't understand yet how to use the test option... (if u mean to set Enable Diagnostic Output to True and run ....googlesitemap/index.php again, i did it and got the same results)

    Hi Jack! I installed this contribution today, but although permissions for the 6 xml files included are set to 777, it gives me the following error: ERROR: Google Product Sitemap Generation FAILED! ERROR: Google Category Sitemap Generation FAILED! ERROR: Google Manufacturers Sitemap Generation FAILED! ERROR: Google Specials Sitemap Generation FAILED! ERROR: Google Pages Sitemap Generation FAILED! ERROR: Google Sitemap Index Generation FAILED! Array ( [QUERY] => Array ( [PRODUCTS] => Array ( [sTATUS] => success [NUM_ROWS] => 386 ) [CATEOGRY] => Array ( [sTATUS] => success [NUM_ROWS] => 55 ) [MANUFACTURERS] => Array ( [sTATUS] => success [NUM_ROWS] => 37 ) [sPECIALS] => Array ( [sTATUS] => success [NUM_ROWS] => 3 ) ) [sAVE_FILE_XML] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [file] => /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.gr/httpdocs/catalog/googlesitemap/sitemapproducts [status] => failure due to incorrect file name [file_exists] => false ) [1] => Array ( [file] => /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.gr/httpdocs/catalog/googlesitemap/sitemapcategories [status] => failure due to incorrect file name [file_exists] => false ) [2] => Array ( [file] => /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.gr/httpdocs/catalog/googlesitemap/sitemapmanufacturers [status] => failure due to incorrect file name [file_exists] => false ) [3] => Array ( [file] => /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.gr/httpdocs/catalog/googlesitemap/sitemapspecials [status] => failure due to incorrect file name [file_exists] => false ) [4] => Array ( [file] => /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.gr/httpdocs/catalog/googlesitemap/sitemappages [status] => failure due to incorrect file name [file_exists] => false ) [5] => Array ( [file] => /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.gr/httpdocs/catalog/googlesitemap/sitemapindex [status] => failure due to incorrect file name [file_exists] => false ) ) ) Somehow the path is not picked up correctly :-(

    1. It didn't affect the currency, it affected the price and set it to zero 2 & 3. Thanx for the info, i got it 4. I lowered it down to 50, 30, 20, 10 & 5 passes, but i still get the HTTP500 error. If there is no fix about this issue for now, it means that i have to insert manualy the keywords on all products (i guess that having as keyword the title of the product is not effective)

    Header Tags SEO

    Hi Jack, i had some free time to check upon my installation and i have some issues and questions: 1. If i enable Display Column Box then the infobox is showing up correctly, but the price of the product on the product's page is shown up as 0€ (on product's listing the price is shown up correctly) 2. Altough the keyword's separator is set to "," on Product Keywords Tag of all products there is no comma, it shows up as one sentence with no comma separation 3. By default the Keyword Density Range is set up to 0.02,0.06. What do these 2 numbers mean and in which way i can modify them in favor of better show up my products on search engines? 4. On the Fill Tags section i had chosen "No" to both Description Override and Keywords Override, so all tags were filled up with the product's title. The problem is that when i choose "Yes" to any of the above, i get an HTTP500 error. I have 500 products on my osc 2.2 MS2 shop (standard, no templates, no STS) Merry Christmas!
  6. Xmmm ok Jack, thanx for the info, i will look around for the ways to fix it :-)

    Who's Online Enhancement 1.4

    I installed v3.7, working ok, but i have the same issue more or less with plutomon: flags, country, city aren't shown and googlemap on the bottom of the page doesn't show any location (only when i click on the visitor's ip address, then i can see country, city and location on googlemap in the ipinfodb.com pop up window that comes up. Any help? :-)
  8. Hi Jack :-) I have installed v2.2d some weeks ago, everything is fine, but just now i noticed 1 little issue: google lists 2 links about the same product of my store, the 1st link ends with i.e. ...-p-428.html (which is the link to my product page) and the 2nd link ends with i.e. ...-pi-428.html (which is the link to the main photo of my product page). Is this good or bad? And if bad, how can i correct it?

    I installed carefully everything and the contribution seems to work perfectly fine!!! I just need to check the 'How to operate" instructions in order to take the best out of it. In my humble opinion, this contribution is professional's work, detailed and established in the most convenient and efficient way for all users. Jack, thank you, u have my full respect :-)

    I corrected the above right column problem concerning product_info.php by using the code from the 'new shop' file which is slightly different than the code in the instructions: New Shop code (ms2, less than 2.3): <?php /*** Begin Header Tags SEO ***/ ?> <tr> <td><?php echo tep_draw_separator('pixel_trans.gif', '100%', '10'); ?></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="smallText" align="center"><?php echo TEXT_VIEWING; ?> <?php if (! tep_not_null($header_tags_array['title'])) $header_tags_array['title'] = $product_info['products_name']; echo '<a title="' . $header_tags_array['title'] . '" href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $product_info['products_id'], 'NONSSL') . '"/# ' . $header_tags_array['title'] . '">' . $header_tags_array['title'] . '</a>'; ?> </td> </tr> <?php /*** End Header Tags SEO ***/ ?> Instructions code (ms2, less than 2.3): <?php /*** Begin Header Tags SEO ***/ ?> <tr> <td><?php echo tep_draw_separator('pixel_trans.gif', '100%', '10'); ?></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="smallText" align="center"><?php echo TEXT_VIEWING; ?> <?php echo '<a title="' . $header_tags_array['title'] . '" href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $product_info['products_id'], 'NONSSL') . '"/# ' . $header_tags_array['title'] . '">' . $header_tags_array['title']; ?></a></td> </tr> <?php /*** End Header Tags SEO ***/ ?> :-)

    Header Tags SEO

    Hi Jack! I have osc 2.2 MS2 (standard, no templates), i have uploaded the sql file & completed the installation of the catalog part. I see no "Replace me in Page Control under index.php" message (in fact i see no changes at all for now), but i guess that this is because my default language doesn't have id 1 (it has id 4). Before i go on to the admin part, i have one question: In the product_info.php, if i add <?php /*** Begin Header Tags SEO ***/ ?> <tr> <td><?php echo tep_draw_separator('pixel_trans.gif', '100%', '10'); ?></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="smallText" align="center"><?php echo TEXT_VIEWING; ?> <?php echo '<a title="' . $header_tags_array['title'] . '" href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $product_info['products_id'], 'NONSSL') . '"/# ' . $header_tags_array['title'] . '">' . $header_tags_array['title']; ?></a></td> </tr> <?php /*** End Header Tags SEO ***/ ?> above </table></form></td> <!-- body_text_eof //--> then on the product page the right column of my site is shown to the bottom of the page (centered). What am i doing wrong? Thanx!

    Hi Jack_mcs! In the beginning of the included instructions it says "The Search Engine Frienly option in admin->Configuration must be off to use this conribution". I use the Ultimate SEO v2.2d contribution, should i set "Enable SEO URL's" to off or does it mean something else? In Admin-->Configuration-->My Store, the "Use Search-Engine Safe URLs (still in development)" option is already set to false. Thanks in advance ¨-)
  14. Hi to anybody that can help :-) I am trying to solve the Greek tax rate issue, so here are the data: 1. There are 2 different tax rate zones in Greece, 23% if product shipped to most states/counties and 16% if product shipped to some others (small states/counties, some islands). 2. In order for a product to take the low tax rate of 16%, the customer must be a business customer (not a simple home user) providing a valid business VAT and his business is situated in one of the regions/counties which are included in the low tax rate zone. The contribution (http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/1240) can solve the 2 different tax rates issue, but it doesn't solve the issue of distinguishing business customer and home user as i explained above. I use the contribution (http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/6833) to insert the VAT field in customer's account and the contribution (http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/4625) so anyone who creates an account will be distinguised either as business user (with business VAT), either as a home user (VAT not provided, not necessary). How can i set up correctly the tax rates? Any help will be strongly appreciated :-)
  15. Jack_mcs, it worked! I think God sent u in this planet to put us out of our misery, thanx a lot! :-) PS In your opinion should i put the other directories included in /includes/configure.php also between slashes? (i mean 'images/' or '/images/' for example)
