    Seach Engine Friendly URL Support

    You are not using the Search Engine Friendly URL contribution, but the SEF Link Transformer one....Which gives just the urls you describe... To get the format you want, you can use Nimmit Sef URLS instead If you use the Search Engine Friendly URLS one... It will look like this... www.mysite.com/jewelry/

    Seach Engine Friendly URL Support

    Its hard to say without knowing more about your sites setup..... but the categories box might have someting to do with the cache.... and your urls are not being rewritten, they are still the osc search engine friendly urls, might be something with your .htaccess file are you using any custom contributions for design , boxes, templates?

    Seach Engine Friendly URL Support

    This just means that the search engine safe urls (They are still in development)dont work on your server setup... Ie. you can not use this mod for sef/seo url since it depends on setting Search Engine Safe URLs to True.. Click the link in my signature sef & seo urls to see other alternatives

    Help on Paypal IPN module

    The main difference about the ipn contrib and the default one, is that the ipn module also stores the order when the customer leaves your site to go to paypal to complete it. Why, if the customer do not press the return to mechant store button after the payment is completeted at teh paypal site, you still have a copy of his/hers order in your system.... Paypal pro is only available for US based merchants, if you are and want to use it you have to sign up and apply for a pro account at paypal. There is already a paypal pro payment module in the contribution section...

    what is the credit card payment module for?

    Install a cvc / cvc2 contrib and a card number washer..... To get the cvc/cvc2 number and to delete the middle diggits and the cvc when the order is processed... But why not get a online merchant account and payment gateway which will not run you much over 30 USD a month, and the order is accepted or declined on the spot.....

    what is the credit card payment module for?

    The oscommerce credit card module just collects the cc data, and are mostly used by people who do their cc processing offline.... There are plenty of other payment modules for most of the common payment gatways in the contribution section.

    Meta Tag Controller Support

    I have not installed this one, i have just looked at the code, i might install it though....i have setup one web site for a client who uses the Search Engine Friendly Urls contrib, today its using a modifyed version of c-dynamic meta tags....but i might replace it with this one to try it out....

    which merchant account better?

    I depends on which country your business are based out of.... Usually there are local banks which can give you a merchant account and then you can sign up for a payment processor which have a on-site payment module for oscommerce. There are also international 3 party payment processors who offers onsite solutions... 1. WorldPay , the most solid and serious of the 3pp out there, they have a solution called select pro integration which lets you process payments on your own site. 2. MerchantBoss,i have never tried them myself but they do offer a solution where your customers do not have to leave your site.

    Meta Tag Controller Support

    This is not compatible with the header tags controller, its a completly new stand alone contribution which automatically creates meta tags. Ie. With header tags you add the meta information when you add products... With Meta Tag Controller Support, you do not add any meta information manually when you add products...the meta tags are generated automatically from the exisiting product information .

    Is it worth accepting paypal on my website ?

    If i do remember correctly, PayPal's seller protection policy is only applicable for US persons/companies.... Othervise paypal is ok to use with caution.....

    STS Live Examples

    STS adds uneccessary complications to the osc structure, adds complications for adding contributions later on and adds to the tottal query count for your site.... I have to agree with AfterDark/Kevin, dont do it...make the changes in the original files and you will be much happier in the long run....

    Seach Engine Friendly URL Support

    The reason and fix is quite simple... The why..... When you use this SE friendly URL's contrib, you are no longer using product_info.php to show the products, instead the products are shown from the index.php file. The fix.... Change the header tags controllers meta selection functions to take into the equation the that the product now is shown from index.php ( And not from product_info.php as is the standard )

    New Payment Module and Merchant Provider

    Hi, Before choosing a payment provider i would suggest a google search about them and also taking a peak in the e-commerce section at webhostingtalk.com Those 2 measures might save you both time and money...... Why, lately alot of 3pp's has not lived up to expectations and payouts has stopped or been severely delayed.
