  1. Greetings Gang, I'm looking for an add-on that will allow me to insert descriptions and images into categories, for a generic description of what the category has in it rather than just into the products themselves. I'm using a brand new installation of osCommercev2.3.1, but unfortunately the add-on I thought would work, didn't. I did try to contact the writer but couldn't get any help on it. The actual add-on I tried to use was "Category Description v1.06". Please does anyone have any idea's that may help. Thanks a bunch in advance gang, you're great...

    Hi Kevin, QPBPP v2.3.1 is definitely a full package, go ahead and install it as written, it's great. My problems occured because of conflict's with another add-on and some lines of code which had to be merged. QPBPP works great, no problems whatsover for a plain install though. Just back everything up first so in the event of problem you can resolve it quickly without any grief. Hope this helps... Cheers, Doug
  3. The Category Description v.1.8 add-on could possibly be changed so that this could be done in the Admin Cpanel, as an add-on selection to the Categories/Products - Products section. I think it should be fairly easy to add it to the admin section and then let your client configure it from there. Is your client able to access and use the Admin Cpanel OK already, John? Would that be what you're looking for as far as a better add-on goes? Cheers, DougB

    Sounds Good Jack, again many thanks for all your help here, it's been a pain at times but I finally got the hang of this one, with a lot of your help that is...! Cheers, DougB

    Header Tags SEO

    Jack, please ignore my previous post, I've just downloaded the latest version v3.2.6 and lo and behold right there in front of me is exactly what I was missing...It's now in and the add-on is working great. Now all I can do is scratch my head wondering where the heck I got the original instructions I was using from...damn. Next question is should I follow the whole installation through one more time to insure I get the updates. At this point I haven't yet started populating the site with products so that will make it pretty easy. Or will just running the new database changes do it for me? Much appreciated again as usual... Cheers DougB

    Header Tags SEO

    Funny the first step in my installation instructions in Install_Catalog.txt actually refer's to changes to the index.php, not the template_top.php file at all... As a matter of fact there are no changes noted to the template_top.php file anywhere's in the Install_Catalog section. The only set of instructions even remotely associated with anything like template_top.php files are in the Admin side of the instructions at Step 8 (admin/includes/template_top.php). Did I get a bad set of instructions out of this somehow and if so, where can I get the good set to download? Thanks again Jack, it really is appreciated more than you'll know. Cheers, DougB

    I just noticed something here, in the Install_Admin instructions Step 8) it say's "In admin/includes/template_top.php" but you didn't say that in the post above, you said "includes/template_top.php"...is there a mixup in your instructions or did you actually mean admin/includes/template_top.php, because if so there are no instructions in either the Catalog or Admin install that says for us to do this? Cheers, DougB

    Hi Jack, No I never saw the "Replace me in Page Control" at any time during the installation. When I type something in the Page Control title and then go to the page and view source it hasn't changed. I followed the instructions to the letter, right from the start. The only one glitch I had in the install was that the QPBB file and Header Tags used the same line in two instance in the admin/categories file as was previously noted here in this thread but after the SQL probelms were corrected everything seemed to be operating OK or at least so I thought. As I'm using osC v.2.3.1, I used the set of instructions for v2.3.+ and the non-new install version as I already had set up the QBPP add-on. As noted, prior to this I'd literally gone through every file in the install a second time, comparing the original files to the modified ones and in every instance the files have been correct as per the instructions...At this point I don't know where to turn, what do you suggest doing?. Many thanks in advance Jack... Cheers, DougB

    Header Tags SEO

    Afternoon Everyone, I'm having really problems with my installation of Header Tags SEO, it's not populating the meta tags, product descriptions etc. in the <head> section of my site. It's v2.3.1 with Quantity Price Breaks code installed prior to this. No other modifications to the stock code. I've tested the install, using the Test function in Header Tags SEO and it tells me "product_info.php is missing Header Tags code or it is not installed correctly. Verify that Fill Tags has been ran and that the root checkbox or the default checkboxes have been checked in Page Control." I've just today finished going through every single piece of the installation once more. I've verified that every single page is accurate to the instructions given, all files are located in their correct folder's and that the database was un-installed and then re-run, just to make sure everything was correct before yelling for help. I've also followed the install directions to run the "Fill Tag's function, and then checked that the default checkboxes in Page Control were also checked. I've gone through this installation sideways, forwards and backwards now, trying to fix it myself and I'm lost....can anyone out there help me please..... Cheers, DougB

    The problem for me was it involved merging of two lines of code from two different add-on's, your's and a quantity price breaks one that I had already inserted. Part of your code also involved two of the same lines of code QPBB used for their add-on. Unfortunately for me, although I have WinMerge I can't use it worth crap, so I wasn't sure which was the correct way to merge the two files. I finally took a shot at doing it manually and ended up with the mess I now have. I still have both original files handy (there were two instances of code overlap) though if you'd like to take a crack at it, (I know you use WinMerge all the time and probably would get the right results instead of my mangled version). Here's the original codes that were modified from the stock v.2.3.1 catalog/admin/categories.php file to the QPBB add-on: Instance 1 code: $product_query = tep_db_query("select pd.products_name, pd.products_description, / pd.products_head_title_tag, pd.products_head_desc_tag, pd.products_head_keywords_tag, pd.products_url,/ p.products_id, p.products_quantity, p.products_model, p.products_image, p.products_price, p.products_qty_blocks, p.products_weight, p.products_date_added, p.products_last_modified, date_format(p.products_date_available, '%Y-%m-%d') as products_date_available, p.products_status, p.products_tax_class_id, p.manufacturers_id, ptdc.discount_categories_id from " .

(int)$HTTP_GET_VARS['pID'] . "' and p.products_id = pd.products_id and pd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'"); Here's what Header Tag SEO code needed to be installed into this line: $product_query = tep_db_query("select pd.products_name, pd.products_description, pd.products_head_title_tag, pd.products_head_desc_tag, pd.products_head_keywords_tag, pd.products_url, p.products_id, p.products_quantity, p.products_model, p.products_image, p.products_price, /p.products_qty_blocks/, p.products_weight, p.products_date_added, p.products_last_modified, date_format(p.products_date_available, '%Y-%m-%d') as products_date_available, p.products_status, p.products_tax_class_id, p.manufacturers_id from " .

I suspect that it's the catalog/admin/categories.php query that I asked about a couple of pages back because this is where the code resides, can someone help me figure out what I've done wrong here?

    Header Tags SEO

    Sorry Jack, Oh geez, I've just have realized this may not be part of your add-on at all now but rather the site. What I meant was regarding the Category name overall, where it's shows within the "Categories Box" on my site it's name is shortened to a total of 32 character's overall, I'd like for that to show at least 40 character's in length. The second question regards the layout within that same Categories box, I'd like to place a horizontal rule directly beneath each of the Category names shown, is there any way to do this? Sorry to be so confusing, I didn't really think about how I worded this question to you...a real D'oh moment I guess. If you're able to help that would be great, thanks in advance. DougB

    Hey Jack, I have two, probably dumb, questions for you. It concerns a couple of slight modifications I'd like to make to your Header Tag's SEO add-on. First, I would like to be able to add about 10 more character's into the Description title field. I'm assuming that would be done in the database but I couldn't find the appropriate section to do this too. Whoops I just saw it above in one of the previous posts, would this code be applicable for the change using a SQL query?: drop table if exists categories_description; create table categories_description ( categories_id int(11) default '0' not null , language_id int(11) default '1' not null , categories_name varchar(40) not null , categories_htc_title_tag varchar(80) , categories_htc_desc_tag longtext , categories_htc_keywords_tag longtext , categories_htc_description longtext , PRIMARY KEY (categories_id, language_id), KEY idx_categories_name (categories_name) ); Now still secondly, I'd like to be able to add a horizontal rule under each of the descriptions, right at the very end. Can you help show me the way to do this? Many thanks indeed. DougB

    Good Morning Jack, Just wanted to show my appreciation and say thanks for helping me walk through this contribution's installation, everything now works slick as a whistle, much in part due to your help, many thanks again. The merged lines of code worked flawlessly, although I couldn't get WinMerge to work properly for me, 'nother learning curve there I expect but that's for another day. As long as I got it done the hard way and it's working, that's fantastic and my SEO problems, at least for this site are now solved as well. Much thanks amigo... Cheers, DougB

    Greetings again folks, I've run into another problem once again with having to merge further code in catalog/admin/categories.php as before, but now in a different location, with slightly different text. Here's the code I'm supposed to be using to replace the original code with: $product_query = tep_db_query("select p.products_id, pd.language_id, pd.products_name, pd.products_description, pd.products_head_title_tag, pd.products_head_desc_tag, pd.products_head_keywords_tag, pd.products_url, p.products_quantity, p.products_model, p.products_image, p.products_price, p.products_weight, p.products_date_added, p.products_last_modified, p.products_date_available, p.products_status, p.manufacturers_id from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p, " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_DESCRIPTION . " pd where p.products_id = pd.products_id and p.products_id = '" . (int)$HTTP_GET_VARS['pID'] . "'"); Here's the code that's currently in there courtesy of QPBPP which has to stay in order for the two contributions to play nice together: $product_query = tep_db_query("select p.products_id, pd.language_id, pd.products_name, pd.products_description, pd.products_url, p.products_quantity, p.products_model, p.products_image, p.products_price, p.products_qty_blocks, p.products_weight, p.products_date_added, p.products_last_modified, p.products_date_available, p.products_status, p.manufacturers_id, ptdc.discount_categories_id, dc.discount_categories_name from " .

"'"); Now, here's my modified version of these two code's merged so that both contributions will continue to work, please oh please could someone please check over my manglelation of these and double check it to see if I've made any mistakes as before... $product_query = tep_db_query("select p.products_id, pd.language_id, pd.products_name, pd.products_description, pd.products_head_title_tag, pd.products_head_desc_tag, pd.products_head_keywords_tag, p.products_url, p.products_quantity, p.products_model, p.products_image, p.products_price, p.products_qty_blocks, p.products_weight, p.products_date_added, p.products_last_modified, p.products_date_available, p.products_status, p.manufacturers_id from " .

    Jack, I'm trying to merge to lines of code here in catalog/admin/categories.php. Approximately line 448 there is a reference to replacing the original code with this line: $product_query = tep_db_query("select pd.products_name, pd.products_description, pd.products_head_title_tag, pd.products_head_desc_tag, pd.products_head_keywords_tag, pd.products_url, p.products_id, p.products_quantity, p.products_model, p.products_image, p.products_price, p.products_weight, p.products_date_added, p.products_last_modified, date_format(p.products_date_available, '%Y-%m-%d') as products_date_available, p.products_status, p.products_tax_class_id, p.manufacturers_id from " .

(int)$languages_id . "'"); However, in my shop I've already installed a quantity price break contribution so I have to merge these line's of code in order for both of these contributions to work properly: $product_query = tep_db_query("select pd.products_name, pd.products_description, / pd.products_head_title_tag, pd.products_head_desc_tag, pd.products_head_keywords_tag, pd.products_url,/ p.products_id, p.products_quantity, p.products_model, p.products_image, p.products_price, p.products_qty_blocks, p.products_weight, p.products_date_added, p.products_last_modified, date_format(p.products_date_available, '%Y-%m-%d') as products_date_available, p.products_status, p.products_tax_class_id, p.manufacturers_id, ptdc.discount_categories_id from " .

(int)$HTTP_GET_VARS['pID'] . "' and p.products_id = pd.products_id and pd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id .

I'll go through the code and see if there's anything else I can add for you, but so far it's looking great!

    Hey Jack, many thanks again, much appreciated! DougB
  23. I'm glad to hear that my perceptions re: the other's in this group aren't off the mark. As for you, and your usual umbrage at "other's who ought to know better in your opinion", please try and control yourself. I'm no stranger whatsoever to .php, just to this programs build and the codes particular to this one contribution. If I want to sit down and go over the entire program in order to further my knowledge and possibly that of the entire community by adding helpful hints or code, that would be one thing, to ask for help within a given thread is totally another but you already knew that anyways. To just be contrary for the sake of being difficult is off-putting to say the least, especially where new members to the osCommerce forums family are concerned. As for me being upset...no, not at all, I'm used to people with small amounts of knowledge in specialized fields trying to compensate by trying to show themselves as seemingly far superior, only showing their overall ignorance of the human condition and their significant lack of compassion whatever the case. If we'd spent as much time working on the issue I located in this contribution as we have insulting each other, it'd be done with and there would be a new contribution for version 2.3.1 to add to the list. With that attitude I'm surprised you are a Community Sponsor...you should be ashamed instead because other's actually care about what this program can do and are proud of their and other's contributions to it. If you're not, perhaps it's time you took a break and let someone else who actually still does care take a shot at it. But that's only my opinion...
  24. Sorry burt but your answer smacked with superiority, it wasn't called for IMHO, but that shouldn't concern you, afterall it's only my opinion. I came here to learn more about the osCommerce program. I'm fairly conversant with php generally however, having studied it at our local university for quite some time but haven't had occasion to use or practice it to any great extent within the context of this particular program or contribution's. In order to further myself more quickly I turned to this forum and it's reader's for help. My client wanted a bare bones install, which I'm well capable of doing him for him and I've also modified the layout and other coding to some extent, but he's asked for more than I bargained for now because of some newer requirements. In finding this out I looked for reasonable contributions, rather than starting from scratch and re-inventing the wheel and found the contribution mentioned, trying to install it as written. When I ran into difficulties I was hoping that these forum's were for those of us trying to learn more about the intricacies of this program in particular and those reading it would try and help, I'm terribly sorry if I've misjudged. Other program forums supporter's usually just want to help when a difficulty arises, taking pride in their program in order to show it is far better than many other's which are available. There are other's however here burt that do care about it obviously and to them I say "Thanks", resoundingly! Your insight and attitude' are great!

    Hi Jack, After reading through your suggestions in my previous post regarding "Category Descriptions v.1.06" I have decided to go ahead with your far better contribution "Header Tags SEO V 3.0" for version 2.3.1, which in addition to allowing me to do what I want as far as adding category descriptions, will do double-duty in also taking care of SEO chores at the same time, far smarter I think. I've already run into a dumb question though, while reading over the installation instructions that perhaps you or one of your contributions supporter's can answer. I have a brand new version of osCommerce v.2.3.1, with one contribution already installed (QPBPP_osc2.3.1_ver2.0, a quantity price break contribution, so I understand to use the correct contribution etc. for my particular version. However what I'm unsure of is whether or not platform is a BTS or STS, as neither folder is in my site heirarchy/structure and there are no instructions written for neither as far as the instructions go. Am I mising something in my codes? I've checked back in my original osCommerce v.2.3.1 package and couldn't locate either of the folder's mentioned. Until I understand a bit more about this I don't want to proceed any further in order to insure a solid install of your contribution. Thanks Jack, appreciate your assistance here. Cheers, DougB
