  1. Correction as I need to give you the correct info to expect an answer:


    Ultimate SEO URLS (http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/2823) is the add-on that is installed. My question is can one edit the meta tags descriptions for all the product pages with his add-on in OSC 2.3.3? If yes, please tell me how.


    If not, can one install the Modular SEO Header Tags together with the add-on above or is it a case of either/or?



  2. Hi All


    I recently had Ultimate SEO URL v2.2 (http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/2823) and Google XML Site installed on my website which runs OSC 2.3.3.


    Now that I needed to have my meta tags updated, a SEO developer had this to say after encountering problems and I quote:


    Hi George,


    Wanted to tell you that there is an issue with the SEO plugin for OSC 2.3.3, the Modular SEO Header Tags - http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/7646. It doesn't have the meta description edit option for the category pages. It works for 2.3.2 version of OSC but not for the latest one. We looked to find a solution but nothing emerged. We did all sorts of tests on our own server, we installed different versios of OSC and it turned out to be this way, so the plugin isn't allowing us to modify the meta descriptions for the category pags (we managed to do it for homepage for instance, only the categories have this issue).


    So I don't know what we can do more for now. Do you have a webmaster, a developer? Maybe you can ask them to see if they can find a solution, we are not code specialists and even if we solved numerous dead-ends in the past, we don't have much to do now.


    Thank you



    My question is, can anybody please help me with a solution as to how we can edit the category pages meta descriptions.


    Much appreciated.



  3. Hi Guys


    I have scrolled through numerous pages and read lots of questions but somehow cannot find an answer to my question. Currently the URL of a product catagory of mine is


    but I would like the URL to only look like this



    And to a specific product it is


    but I would like it to read



    Could somebody please tell me how or which settings to change.




  4. Hi All


    I am running OSC 2.3.3 and have installed CKEditor for 2.3.zip. CKEditor shows in Admin where I can switch it on or off. It shows in Catagories when adding a new product and also shows when editing an existing product.


    But when I add new text in Product Description (or changed existing text) the changes are not saved when I clicked "Save". When I "Edit" the product none of the changes I made shows. Also, none of the icons in CKE are "active" - I cannot select a text line and make it bold, or change font size or colour, nothing.


    Could somebody please help as I need to edit my products urgently.


    Many thanks

  5. Hi Everyone.


    Previously I had an add-on installed that alows me to enter a shipping cost on the catagories/products/ page. It was just below the product price and also gave you the oppertunity to fill in the shipping cost for any additional items.


    The "OSC Specialist" who upgraded my site from 2.3.1 to 2.3.3 just made a mess of it all and this add-on is now missing. Does anyone have an idea which shipping modukle it could be and if it will be compatible with v2.3.3?


    Many thanks

  6. Hi Nick


    I did, starting with create_account.php where I deleted all references to captcha. I tested it and all works fine. Then did the same with contact_us.php but upon testing it, the page does not move to next step to say that email has been sent - it "hangs" there. So I deleted recaptchalib.php and it still does the same, i.e hangs.


    Any ideas how to proceed? Anybody?



  7. Hi All


    I had a developer install reCaptcha on my "Contact Us" and "Create Account" page but I have decided to remove/uninstall it. Can somebody please tell me how to uninstall/remove Captcha from these pages and in OSC.


    Installation was done via PhP.


    Thank you.

  8. A developer linked the lot (CKEditor, CKFinder, Newsletter Manager and Sending Emails) and then I tested a newsletter with Newsletter Manager and OMG does it look crappy!!


    Now I am looking for a Newsletter add-on to send Specials and New Products emails to clients. Does anybody have an add-on suggestion?


    I had a look at this one but am not sure if it can be used in OSC 2.3 and if it is great.

  9. Hi Everyone


    I am not sure if I am missing something but I was under the impression that if I have CKEditor installed I can use it to create and send Newsletters and Emails to customers within OSC 2.3.


    If that is the case, then please help as CKEditor only "appears" when I edit product descriptions.


    If it is not the case, which addon/module can I install to create and send great newsletters and emails which is easy to use with CKEditor within OSC 2.3.


    Many thanks


  10. Hi Everyone


    I have eventually managed to get CKEditor working in OSC 2.3 but now I need to install and then integrate CKFinder with CKEditor.


    Following their installation documenation is absolutely way over my head as it is written for developers and not newbies. I have installed the CKFinder folder in CKEditor and now need someone to please tell me in plain English, how to get CKFInder working.


    Many thanks


  11. I had a look and cannot figure out how to add the new lines you want me to so I can capture the info into the different headings/colums. It seems as if your line number is 1182 and 1183 - mine ends at 440 so I have to create line 441 and 442. Correct?


    Should the last modified date to be today?

  12. The only entry I found in "configuration" is


    USE_CKEDITOR_ADMIN_TEXTAREA under the "configuration key" colum which is set to "true" with the configuration description as "Use CKEditor for WYSIWYG editing of textarea field....

  13. Not silly question as nothing ever referred to that. But, under admin>configuration there is no "html editor" as all that shows is:

    • Administrators
    • Store Logo
    • My Store
    • Minimum Values
    • Maximum Values
    • Images
    • Customer Details
    • Module Options
    • Shipping/Packaging
    • Product Listing
    • Stock
    • Logging
    • Cache
    • E-Mail Options
    • Download
    • GZip Compression
    • Sessions
    • Terms & Conditions

    And this is worrisome as I thought all along that there is an HTMl Editor that comes with ver 2.3.
