  1. Header Tags SEO

    No changes Jack, it's just that I only just noticed it. Some cat descriptions are just not showing up I discovered today as I was adding some products.. It's very puzzling. Thanks
  2. Header Tags SEO

    Hi Jack. I installed this back around the end of summer last year. I just noticed that only some of my category descriptions are showing up. Any ideas? I imagine this isn't good for sales. Thanks. Art

    Hi Jack. The link shows up just below the text as a very thin blue bar. It's there, but you have to click on it to see it as it was meant to be seen. Not sure why. Thanks

    It shows in the attached pic - you have to click on it to enlarge it - not sure why. Anyhow, I'm talking about links within the breadcrumb trail thanks

    Hi Jack I am noticing in my breadcrumb trail duplicates and triplicates. How can I fix this? Thanks photo attached

    There is a page featured_products.php. I don't recall if this was an add-on or came with stock OSC. Seems to have been there as long as I can remember. It's on a massively optimized shop from 2004, 2.2 I think.. thanks

    Jack, I just noticed that featured products is not in the file list. Is there a reason for that or ?? I tried selecting add missing pages though that didn't help. I suspect for some reason that didn't get added to the database (it's not there) perhaps a glitch during the installation. Was that supposed to be pulled from the filenames.php file? Perhaps I should just add it manually to the db? - no big deal. Thanks..

    OK, I think I've found what i need if you can just verify $tmpTags['prod_model'] = (tep_not_null($the_product_info['products_model'])) ? $the_product_info['products_model'] : ''; $tmpTags['prod_model'] = (substr($tmpTags['prod_model'],3)); That should do it, right? Seems to work as I need it to. You need not respond unless there are any other places that might need fixing.. Thanks Jack

    OK, I messed around with the settins and think I have that part figured out now - tyvm. I would like to alter the model number though and not sure where to do this. My model numbers in the database are pre-pended with a 3 digit manufacturer code, but I need this stripped out. That I know how to do, but I need to know which file to change. Thanks..

    Hi Jack. I must say this add-on has a lot of bells and whistles and it is hard for me as an old fart to figure it all out. I'll get there though. I did take to customizing some of the meta tags directly through my database interface. One thing I cannot figure out is why the model numbers are not showing up in the page titles. Can you point me in the right direction to fix this? Thaks..

    Changed back to standard - works now Jack. Thank you so much. Once my site recovers from Panda, etc, I will be sending a contribution..
  12. Google XML Sitemap SEO

    Hi Jack. I was wondering about that, and had checked my catalog/inc/con file as well to be safe. No luck there either. Here is that config file - maybe you can spot something I can't. Thanks again...: define('HTTP_SERVER','http://www.mysite.com'); define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.mysite.com'); define('ENABLE_SSL', true); // secure webserver for checkout procedure? define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN','www.mysite.com'); define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN','www.mysite.com'); define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/'); define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '/'); define('HTTP_MAIL_DOMAIN', 'mysite.com'); define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', '/'); define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/'); define('DIR_WS_IMAGES', 'images/'); define('DIR_WS_ICONS', DIR_WS_IMAGES .

    Thanks for the response Jack, but I'm still having the same exact issue. Following is my config file from admin. There are a couple of lines which have been there forever, but I made some changes tonight based on your link and commented them out and replaced them. That did take care of a longstanding (as in forever) issue of backup directory warnings, but I never really used it so it wasn't an issue, and as far as I could ever tell never caused any issues otherwise. I do not know if that was how the original file was setup or some mod required a change - the shop has been up for going on nine years now. Not sure it would or should matter much since either version yields the same results. Anyhow, I get the sense that there may be a mixup between FS and WS somewhere. but since my site is fuctioning I suspect the problem is not in the config file at least. Any other ideas? Thanks again! // define our webserver variables // FS = Filesystem (physical) // WS = Webserver (virtual) define('HTTP_SERVER', 'https://www.mysite.com'); // eg, http://localhost or - https://localhost should not be NULL for productive servers define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER', 'http://www.mysite.com'); define('HTTPS_CATALOG_SERVER', 'https://www.mysite.com'); define('ENABLE_SSL_CATALOG', 'true'); // secure webserver for catalog module define('DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT', '/home/mysite/public_html/'); define('DIR_WS_ADMIN', '/admin/'); define('DIR_FS_ADMIN', '/home/mysite/public_html/admin/'); define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/'); define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/mysite/public_html/'); old line replaced tonight // define('DIR_FS_ADMIN', DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT .

    Hi Jack I d/l the most recent version. After installing ran it in diagnostic mode, and this is what I get: Opening /sitemapproducts.xml FS_CAT /home/mysite/public_html/ Server http://www.mysite.com Save Path / WS_CAT / ERROR: Google Product Sitemap Generation FAILED! Opening /sitemapcategories.xml FS_CAT /home/mysite/public_html/ Server http://www.mysite.com Save Path / WS_CAT / ERROR: Google Category Sitemap Generation FAILED! Opening /sitemapindex.xml FS_CAT /home/mysite/public_html/ Server http://www.mysite.com Save Path / WS_CAT / ERROR: Google Sitemap Index Generation FAILED! Array ( [QUERY] => Array ( [PRODUCTS] => Array ( [sTATUS] => success [NUM_ROWS] => 1573 ) [CATEOGRY] => Array ( [sTATUS] => success [NUM_ROWS] => 145 ) ) [sAVE_FILE_XML] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [file] => /sitemapproducts.xml [status] => failure [file_exists] => false ) [1] => Array ( [file] => /sitemapcategories.xml [status] => failure [file_exists] => false ) [2] => Array ( [file] => /sitemapindex.xml [status] => failure [file_exists] => false ) ) ) instructions indicate there is supposed to be an install file but it is not in the zip that I have. Permissions are set correctly. Looks like something wrong with the paths. Can you steer me in the right direction please? running php 5.3.19 thanks

    Jack, what would cause one or more of my files to not show up in the drop-down lists? I noticed 2 right off the bat that are missing. Thanks again 4 this super contribution..
