    Header Tags SEO

    I found a work-around so don't spend time assisting with this post.

    Thanks. I was missing a tick in the Manufacturer box for index.php. But now I've found something else not working. categories_description is not being displayed on middle-level categories. It only works for the start and end of categories. For example, if I'm at the end of a category structure like so... www.example.com/...c-22.html www.example.com/...c-22_630_631_632.html ... then it properly shows, but if I'm on these nested category pages... www.example.com/...c-22_630_631.html www.example.com/...c-22_630.html ... then it doesn't show.

    What controls the HTSEO for the manufacturer pages such as index.php?manufacturers_id=31 I've just realized that all of my manufacturer pages don't have any titles or meta descriptions and they've been removed from G's index. :-( I tried to create a pseudo page called index.php?manufacturers_id=31 and it gives an error saying, "The base file entered, index.php, does not support pseudo pages." Every other page on the site properly displays the HTSEO data (products, categories, articles, etc). Only the manufacturers pages don't show anything.

    And... this is long overdue... but this is the best contribution I have added to my osC store, I wanted Jack_mcs to know. I installed Header Tags Controller a couple years ago and the results were amazing (as long as you just put in the time to make each page on the site unique). I recently converted my store to oscmax and converted the database tables to use HTSEO and installed the HTSEO contribution into the BTS (not an easy job). Unfortunately, I can't convince the guys over at oscmax that this contribution is better than the dynamic meta tag generator contribution that comes packaged with it. :-(

    Any time I change permissions on header_tags.php, there's a warning on the top of the screen that says, "Permissions settings for the /home/site/public_html/includes/header_tags.php file appear to be incorrect. Change to 755. NOTE: Disregard if on Windows server." So I have been keeping it at 755... HOWEVER, that is the reason why this hasn't been working! I changed permissions to 777 and now my pseudo pages are working. Is that permission warning generated by HTSEO code or is it my host that's responsible for it?

    My permissions are set at the required 755. The article_info section looks just like this... // article_info.php case (basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) === FILENAME_ARTICLE_INFO): if (! ReadCacheHeaderTags($header_tags_array, basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']), $language, '')) { $header_tags_array = tep_header_tag_page(FILENAME_ARTICLE_INFO); WriteCacheHeaderTags($header_tags_array, basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']), $language, ''); } break;

    I can not get this to work with Article Manager and BTS. Maybe I just don't understand the instructions, but all of my article pages look like this... <title>Article Info - [the Default Title]</title> <meta name="Description" content="" > <meta name="Keywords" content="Article Info , [the Default Keywords]" > I added a pseudo page article_info.php?articles_id=1 and it now appears in the drop down menu and I can edit the Title, Description, and Keywords for it. I've ticked all of the check boxes on the left side of the "Include" section. I don't know what else to do. Everything else on the site works spot on (categories, products, etc). What could be wrong?

    The includes/header_tags.php is causing my site to go blank! I have successfully installed HTSEO and it's working perfectly on my site. The problem arises in the Admin. All I have to do is click the infobox heading link "Header Tags SEO" and this causes my site to disapear. I've narrowed it down to the includes/header_tags.php file. When the Header Tags SEO options page is loaded, then every file within my root directory that has a .php extension gets added to includes/header_tags.php like this... // promo.php case (basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) === FILENAME_PROMO): if (! ReadCacheHeaderTags($header_tags_array, basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']), $language, '')) { $header_tags_array = tep_header_tag_page(FILENAME_PROMO); WriteCacheHeaderTags($header_tags_array, basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']), $language, ''); } break; // manufacturers_anywhere.php case (basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) === FILENAME_MANUFACTURERS_ANYWHERE): if (! ReadCacheHeaderTags($header_tags_array, basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']), $language, '')) { $header_tags_array = tep_header_tag_page(FILENAME_MANUFACTURERS_ANYWHERE); WriteCacheHeaderTags($header_tags_array, basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']), $language, ''); } break; ... except there are about 50 pages that get added. Two questions: 1) Why are all these extra .php pages (they're mostly articles I've written) being added to includes/header_tags.php and 2) How can this be prevented (because it's causing my site not to load)?

    Manufacturers Dropdown Anywhere

    I installed this contribution. It works just as I wanted except the drop down box displays the first manufacturer by default. This prevents a person from being able to select that manufacturer from the list. How would you modify the code so that the drop down menu displays something like "Select Manufacturer" by default rather than the displaying the first manufacturer?

    Installation isn't even similar for an oscmax shop! ;) Getting to where I've got it now has taken a looooong time. I'm confused by what this means: "be sure you are following the correct instructions (that is not covered in the update files)." Am I supposed to run the test on index.php? What part of the test results will give me my clue?

    Header Tags SEO

    Some of the "top-level" categories (ie: index.php?cPath=339) show the value that's in the categories_htc_title_tag field whilst others show the word "Categories". None of the "mid-level" categories (ie: index.php?cPath=339_423) show the value that's in the categories_htc_title_tag field. They all show the word "Categories". All of the "bottom-level" categories (ie: index.php?cPath=339_423_590) show the value that's in the categories_htc_title_tag field.

    Any idea what part of the installation would cause some categories use the HTSeo settings while others seem to ignore them? I've checked the DB entries with phpMyAdmin and can't find anything inconsistent from the categories that work and those that don't. I should probably mention that I installed this on osCMax 2.0.25.

    I did that as part of the setup instructions and it only says, "No Category tags have been filled."

    Header Tags SEO

    I migrated from HTC to Header Tags SEO v3.2.5 and have come across a strange problem. Some of the category pages will display the value of the categories_description.categories_htc_title_tag field for the page's HEADING_TITLE and other category pages will display the word "Categories" in this location. Been working about 15 hours today to make this work so I'm probably overlooking something easy, but I need help. In case you're wondering what text I'm referring to, it is the <H1> text in the upper-left corner of the main content area.
  15. I have, and I know that about 10 of the many contribs I've installed are not compatible with STS so that is not an option. Looking at the sample link in my original post, do you know how I could get something similar?
