    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.
  3. 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.

  7. 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.
  8. Also I can't access admin because the page loads blank. Thanks
  9. Hello, I installed Ultimate SEO Urls v2.2d-11 (latest) on a fresh install of OSCommerce v2.3.1. Also, I'm on a dedicated Apache server. Here's a link to myshop.

    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.

    Thanks for the fast reply. The server is Apache 2.x/Linux. Where do I add .htaccess? Here's the top 9 lines of includes/configure.php: define('HTTP_SERVER', ''); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers define('HTTPS_SERVER', ''); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers define('ENABLE_SSL', false); // secure webserver for checkout procedure? define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', ''); define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', ''); define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', ''); define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', ''); define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', ''); define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', ''); Again, thank you.

    ULTIMATE Seo Urls 5 - by FWR Media

    Hello, Thanks for your work and continued support. I installed the latest version on a fresh install of oscommerce 2.3. With the contrib enabled I get urls like this: http://www.discxpress.com/product_info.php/swat-close-quarters-battle-swat3-p-21. It is a broken link. With SEO Urls 5 disabled, the links work fine of course. Where should I begin to look so I can resolve this issue? Thanks

    One Page Checkout Support

    Thanks for replying. The email issue is resolved when the browser is closed and re-opened. I guess cookies or IP logging may have something to do with it. With OPC enabled, the customer gets returned to the checkout page. With OPC disabled, the customer goes to the login page to either login or create account. I run OSCommerce RC2. I will try installing earlier version of OPC to see if code changes in the updates may have triggered the problem.

    One Page Checkout Support

    I use the latest version of OPC and CCGV. I may try installing one of the earlier versions to see what happens. It could be a caching issue or the way Internet Explorer 8 handles it. Thanks for replying.

    Hello, I still need assistance with my problem on post #974 in this thread, if possible. Thanks.

    One Page Checkout Support

    Hello, I've just installed this module and it's mostly functional. It's a great contribution, but I'm experiencing some minor issues: With One Page Checkout enabled: 1. If the customer fills cart and enter all required information, everything goes fine except when they click the continue button they're returned to the checkout page. No order or information is posted in admin. 2. The email field remains filled with previous customer's email address. The next customer sees a 'Email address already exists, please login to use a different address' message box. With One Page Checkout disabled: (OPC remains enabled and it seems to work better disabled in admin.) 1. If the customer fills the cart and enter all required information and click the continue button they're taken to the Create Account page. Once all the information is entered and click continue they're taken back to checkout.php the only thing that is pre-filled is the email field. 2. The email field remains filled with previous customer's email address. The next customer sees a 'Email address already exists, please login to use a different address' message box. 3. The order goes through, customers receive welcome email and all information goes where it should. I got the coupon module CCGV working perfectly and I left One Page Checkout disabled in admin so orders can come through. Thanks for any help given. I would like to get this working so the customer can feel safe and have more control over the checkout process.

    Header Tags SEO

    Jack. There isn't anything wrong with your code, it works perfectly. Since I have a large shop, I needed to reduce the amount of queries so the pages can load faster. On a much smaller shop the code is perfect. I have over a thousand categories. There was some code that was querying the DB for each category separately. The code that was suggested to me simplifies this. Here's the suggested code for your viewing: $products_query = tep_db_query("SELECT pd.products_head_title_tag, p.products_id FROM " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_TO_CATEGORIES . " p2c INNER JOIN " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_DESCRIPTION . " pd ON pd.products_id = p2c.products_id AND pd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' INNER JOIN " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p ON p.products_id = p2c.products_id AND p.products_status = '1' WHERE p2c.categories_id = '" . (int)$catID . "' ORDER BY p.products_ordered LIMIT " . (int)$silo['max_links'] . ""); I was worried about losing possible buyers due to slow page loads. I imagine if I only had 25,000 products or less then the page load times would be minimal. Thanks

    Header Tags SEO

    Jack, My site was loading slowly until I ran into this thread that was started by Chemo. Then I installed Queries Debug Output v1.4 for osCommerce-ms2. It showed that the Silo Box available in Header Tags SEO V3.1.8 was taking 15.4 seconds to load. The query that was specifically addressed was: select pd.products_head_title_tag, p.products_id from products_description pd left join products p on pd.products_id = p.products_id left join products_to_categories p2c on pd.products_id = p2c.products_id where p.products_status = '1' and pd.language_id = '1' and p2c.categories_id = '3' order by p.products_ordered Limit 6 which refers to line 72 in header_tags_silo.php. I temporarily removed the Silo Box until you had a chance to look at the code to see if you can get it to load faster. Since it is your code and creation, I felt you were the best option to improve it. I didn't realize there was a process of optimizing store speed. How does page loading affect the way search engine bots crawl a website? I know customers will leave if it takes more than 10 seconds, especially the impulse buyers. That will cause a higher bounce rate. I have a large store and higher parse times could be a hidden enemy. Siloing is a great benefit according to research and I know you wouldn''t waste your time on it. I will be adding it again once I can get it to load faster. Thanks.

    Article Manager v1.0

    Thanks for the reply Jack. Since I have such a large database, it's a strain on my PC when attempting to load a category with thouands of items. It consumes a lot of memory and causes it to freeze. Even with 2GB memory. So I found it easier to put a temporary product in the Xsell area in admin. Then I go to phpMyadmin and change it to the correct product by replacing the item number. It works well that way. I realize most of these contributions are made to suit smaller shops. It is what I'm looking for, however. I want to write content and relate products to my articles. Its good for SEO and consumers. I appreciate the advice on number 2. I will give it a try. Thanks.

    Article Manager v1.0

    Hello, I need help with two things: 1. Articles Xsell-I have a large shop with over 400,000 products. I would like to know if its possible to cross sell products by the products_id instead of selecting the product from the drop down menu. Has anyone successfully done this? If so please share. 2. List of articles on index page-How can I get like a list of articles to show up on the index page? I want to show the five newest articles and a small abstraction. Thanks

    Google XML Sitemap SEO

    You can go to Yahoo!'s siteexplorer and setup a free account where you can submit sitemaps. You can set up a free webmaster tools account for MSN search which is now Bing here. If you already have a LIVE.COM or Hotmail account you can use that account. They don't give you as much information in reports as Google but it will get them to notice you. Sitemaps are sort of standard so they can read your Google sitemaps with no problem. I hope this helps.
