    Header Tags SEO

    Hello Jack, I'm trying to figure out what's preventing the meta tags from appearing on the product information pages. When viewing the source, I see meta tag with Extra Product Fields tags around them. When I look at that contribution, I can't find where the meta tags are affected? Have you been presented with this issue before? Thanks for your help.

    Optional Related Products, Version 4.0

    Question. Is it possible to create some extra fields in Easy Populate so relations can be established by spreadsheet? I have a large shop and it would seem easier to locate in excel and match the items. Or better yet match the products to all products in a certain category. I know that option was available in the other cross sell contributions for version 2.2. This is a great contribution and that's my idea for making it greater. If I was good at php I would attempt that feat myself. Thanks for your time.

  4. Hello, I would like to get rid of the session ID but still create a session. The session ID appends itself to the end of the url which is a security risk. Thanks for any help.

    How to get rid of session ID's for OSC 2.3.1

    I found the solution. I've already had the latest version of Ultimate SEO Urls by Chemo installed. What I needed to do was go to Admin>>Sessions>>Force Cookie Use=True. I hope this helps someone else. Take care.

    Need shipping module

    Maybe give the UK its own shipping module. The word "United" may have something to do with the mixup. Or change the United Kingdom to Great Britain. Im not sure what it would take to make that change. I remember shipping items there and I couldn't make shipping labels using United Kingdom. I hope that helps

    Need shipping module

    Kenkja, I would suggest to adhere to the case sensitivity. If its all caps then replace with all caps. I wish you luck.

    Need shipping module

    Hello, Im not familiar with table rates. All I can say is to backup your original files and give it a try. Search the forums for a discussion about table rates. Sorry I couldn't help.

    Need shipping module

    EddieO, Since you're new to this, I recommend having more than one copy of fresh files of OSCommerce version 2.3.1. The golden rule is to have a backup of the files you've modified. I must ask how many shipping methods does your business require. Since I sale media, my flat rates are low. I use standard, 3-day, expedited, Canada & Mexico and international. I used the same process I described to create all those. I'm not familiar with the solution Chris provides above but my guess would be create multiple international shipping methods and assign them to countries according to regions of the world they lie in. So when a customer from a certain zone place an order, they would be charged the rate according to the shipping method you assigned their zone. That would take some research with your preferred shipping provider. Also you may need to consider the cost to ship one item to that zone and charge a couple of bucks extra to ship additional items. OR..... You can calculate the cost to ship one item to different zones and charge one flat rate for all regions plus cost to ship additional items. I find it simpler this way. I hope this helps

    Need shipping module

    EddieO, I hope that I can help and I'm not too late. I've just done the same task that you're needing assistance with. I'm using version 2.3.1. Here's what I done based on the flat shipping method: 1. In your files open catalog/includes/modules/shipping/flat.php with your favorite text editor (I used Wordpad). With the same text editor open a blank document. 2. Next in flat.php copy the entire contents over to the blank document which will become the file for your new shipping rate. 3. Then in the new document every occurance of "flat" should be changed to the name you choose for your new shipping rate. I chose standard. Be careful some occurances are in all caps. 4. Save the file in php format. For example, standard.php 5. Now you must make another file. Open catalog/includes/languages/english/modules/shipping/flat.php and copy the conents. 6. Open another blank document. Paste the contents of flat.php 7. Once again change all occurances of flat to whatever you chose to name your shipping method. It must be the same name as the first file. For example, standard.php 8. Now upload both files to your server. catalog/includes/modules/shipping/standard.php or whatever name you chose catalog/includes/languages/english/modules/shipping/standard.php must be same name as first file. 9. Login to your admin area, click on Modules then Shipping In the upper-right of the admin area there should a button labeled Install Module. Click on that button 10. Your newly named shipping method should be listed along with the other shipping methods. Attempt to install it and edit the settings as you wish. If you have trouble ask for help.

    Developing a captcha addon for 2.3.1.

    @14steve14, I've been working on one of the recaptcha mods also. I almost got it going but im not quite sure if I got it flowing properly. It still allows to send mail via form without entering code in recaptcha box. Also, the emails are blank. Try it for yourself @ http://www.discxpress.com/contact_us.php. Tell me what's wrong and then I'll post the code for the contact page. Thanks

    Header Tags SEO

    I updated the page control and it seems to be working. I just don't understand why the error still showing. I just remembered that I installed Easypopulate for V2.3 a couple of days ago. So I will check the files to see if it has any file changes on the same files as HTSEO. Thanks.

    Header Tags SEO

    Jack, Thanks for the fast reply. I tried your suggestion but no change. I know its something that I've done. Maybe it's something to do with me trying to install Facebook Connect but couldn't get that working properly. Do you think it could have something to do with application_top or template_top? Thanks

    Header Tags SEO

    Hello, Has anyone experienced the following error? This happens in the admin area only on header_tags_seo.php. Header Tags work on product pages but not on index pages. The last contribution I remember installing before HTSEO stopped working was All Products SEO, which is not compatible with OSC 2.3.1. Thanks for your support.
  16. Hello, I'm trying to implement both FB Like & FB Connect on OSC 2.3.1. My problem is that I can't get both to work in harmony. I can use FB Like with no problem but it seems when I try to login to FB with FB Connect, I can click the button and a new window appears. When I attempt to sign in nothing happens. I've tried to use the same app_id, app_key & app_secret for both with no success. Also, when I look at the address bar, the app_id for FB Like is showing although I'm attempting to login with FB Connect. I'm guessing FB Connect is trying to use FB Connect's credentials. Has anyone gotten these two to work together? Thanks

    Facebook Connect Support Thread

    Hello, This is a great contribution because most customers will have a facebook account. Has anyone successfully integrated this into OSCommerce v2.3? If so, please help me with login.php, create_account.php and logout.php. There are different because in OSC 2.3 <div>s are used instead of <table> Thanks for any help.

    All Products SEO

    Hello Jack, I was installing the latest version of All Products on OSCommerce 2.3.1 and when I reached step #7 there's no longer a column left. All boxes are modules now. The SQL file and admin changes went smoothly. All I see that's needed is: 1. An All Products box that can be enabled in admin 2. catalog/all-products.php calls for "column_left", so maybe that file needs some code changes 3. Code changes to admin/all-products.php, the admin menu on the left side is distorted I know you're the maintainer of this contribution. I'm posting this to inform you of the experience I had while installing on OSC 2.3.1. I see you're maintaining about 30 contributions, so I figured you haven't had the time to look at this. Hopefully my post will help you (in some small way) with your approach to updating this contribution. So far this is the only contribution on your "recommended SEO contributions list" that don't quite fit v2.3.1. I have yet to try Sitemap SEO and Links Manager. Thanks for your continued support.

  20. It appears that I have the issue with the links resolved. However I still can't access the admin area. I know its a 500 Internal server error. Since I'm on a dedicated server and must manage it myself, I"m trying to figure out how to get the errors to post to the error log. Do you know of any common issues that will trigger this error? Thanks.
  21. Also I can't access admin because the page loads blank. Thanks

    Header Tags SEO

    Thanks Jack. I have downloaded the latest version. Do you know of any version of Ultimate SEO Urls that will work with Header Tags and OSC 2.3.1? I've tried one by FWR but couldn't get it going and eventually I had to reinstall OSC. While I'm at it, I'll install your ultimate SEO contribution! Thanks for your continued support.
