  1. This is the support thread for .htaccess Optimisation. Installation: Upload the .htaccess file, or if you already have one, copy the text and add it to your .htaccess file. What does it do? This add-on will optimise your site, massively speeding it up, reducing your bandwidth usage and possibly increase your search engine ranking. How? In two ways, first, by compressing files that can be sent compressed, sometimes reducing file transfer size by upto 80%. Second, by controlling the cache, thus again reducing server load.

    [Contribution] Discount Coupon Codes

    I've downloaded from http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/7644 the 2.3.3 version. I'm going to hack together the updates since the last full version for myself, so I figure I will upload my full package for anyone else who needs it. Are there any known issues with this version I should know about before I undertake this? Looking at the 2.2 version (where it looks like most of the dev is happening) there might be a PayPal issue? Cheers

    Header Tags SEO

    It seems like Google might be making their own titles, because even if I don't have a title set in Header Tags, and the default title is showing on my website, Google is showing the article title in their search results. Weird. I've replaced article_info.php but that hasn't changed anything. I'll keep poking around, I'm sure the problem will show itself eventually. Again, Jack, thanks so much for all you do for this community, we all greatly appreciate it.

    Looking for a Purchase Without Account add-on

    Thanks for that, I'll look into these.
  8. Hi I'm looking for an add-on for 2.3.3 which allows users to purchase (and, importantly, leave reviews) without having to create an account. I've tried searching and I can't seem to find what I'm looking for, does anyone know of one? Thanks

    SiteMonitor

    Hi Jack. I think I have fixed the problem. I manually opened sitemonitor_configure_0.txt through FTP and changed: $start_dir = '/home/username/public_html'; //your shops root TO: $start_dir = '/home/MY_REAL_USERNAME/public_html'; //your shops root And now everything seems to be working correctly. Thanks

    SiteMonitor

    Hi Jack, This is what is happening: I go to the configure page, set my options and press "update". When I do that I get the red error bar across the top but it is empty, there is no error there. Then I go to admin and press the first button. This is when I get the error I posted in the message above. When I go back to configure, all the options are back to default, anything I changed has gone. If it is "a server issue", do you know what I might need to do to fix it? Thanks

    This is very strange. I'm sorry, I don't know what the issue is. If you've uploaded the .htaccess to your root it should be working.

    Hi Jack, just having a little trouble getting this to work. I've read this thread and seen that others have had this same issue, but I can't see how anyone has fixed it. As far as I can tell I've installed correcetly but I'm getting this error: Warning: opendir(/home/username/public_html) [function.opendir]: failed to open dir: No such file or directory in /home/**myusername**/public_html/**mydirectory**/catalog/**myadmin**/includes/functions/sitemonitor_functions.php on line 364 Reference file creation failed! Thanks a lot

    Google XML Sitemap SEO

    I haven't seen it explicitly stated anywhere, so I will confirm, YES, this does work on 2.3.3.

    Very strange. What Google PageSpeed and Pingdom scores are you getting?

    @@aliasad Is your server running apache? Is <IfModule mod_headers.c> found anywhere else in your .htaccess? And I know this sounds silly, but did you remember to upload it?

    Did you install it correctly? If so, maybe you had already implemented these improvements in the past?

    Header Tags SEO

    Ok, this is very strange. In Google search results, the correct titles show, but on my website only the default titles show. The entire reason I have articles is for SEO, so I guess it is working for me, but it is very strange none the less...

    That's great to hear. Would you mind explaining how you fixed it in case others have the same issue? Thanks!

    I've never used GoDaddy, but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work. It is easy enough to try though.

    [Contribution] .htaccess Optimisation V1.0

    That is great to hear, almost a 20% improvement in one case! I have another version that includes keep-alive, but I haven't noticed any real improvement using it, so I haven't bothered uploading it yet.

    I really hope this helps people. To see how much it improves your site, first test your site on the following two sites, then add the addon and test again. http://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/

    [Contribution] .htaccess Optimisation V1.0

    It should work on any version.
  24. I finally got this to work! The problem was on line 216 of catalog/includes/classes/supertracker.php. It should read like this: if (preg_match('/$pattern/', '/$user_agent/')) My only issue now is whenever I want to read a report, I use the drop down menu and am asked to log in to admin again for every new report I want to read. Is this normal?

    Header Tags SEO

    Thanks Jack. I have Article Manager 1.57_7 installed, so the problem isn't the age of the version. Would you think the problem is with Header Tags or Article Manager?
