    Header Tags SEO

    It does not replace Ultimate SEO urls. It does replace header tags controller. It will work with Ultimate SEO urls Drop the header tags controller 2.6.3 from your list and use this header tags SEO mod instead. It is based off of 2.6.3 If your using the dynamicsitemap with the option to create the xml sitemaps from the admin, then you can drop the google sitemap generator and submit your xml generated sitemaps to google via google webmaster tools account. Spiders.txt is a Spiders.txt, you should have one. All product is good to have, and there is also an all categories somewhere. I use them both. The header tags seo is really worth the install time. Its freaken great. I have it up on a demo here: http://demo.nxlcart.com/ Look at the page title, then hover over the logo and read the alt text, then look at the breadcrumb name, then the pages heading title, then the currently viewing text below everything else, PLUS the alt text echoed on every social bookmark icon, and the images alt text. That is a lot of keyword use in one page. A lot. I think it adds a lot of needed weight to a page. I went a lil overboard and added the currently veiwing: text to most pages including categories, topics, manufactures, authors, newsdesk categories and information pages. I couldnt help it. Its worth every bit of work and helps give every page importance.
  3. Youll have to see if Burt has a topic on what it does. I do believe he has some help section about it on his site. But as far as I have seen, that is the only version that will work with an RC version. The other gift voucher mods do not send the discount values thru the checkout process nor do they show the name of the coupon in admin after you create it (only on RC versions). They can be made to work though but it takes a fair knowledge of the checkout process. And the name not showing up is a simple array issue with sql 5. You may want search for the MS2.2 version on sourceforge if the contribution you installed doesnt offer enuff. I dont know what all it does, I just know it was created by a trusted source and he says it works with RC versions.

    MS is for mile stones. MS versions are the latest that are stable. RC is for release canidate. RC versions have a wrinkle or three to iron out.

    STS is place of shit.

    LOL :lol: This is something else now!! It probally did cost him more than its worth in database queries! I would not call it a stinking turd, but it does amaze me how many people do use it though.

    If your using an MS, version then Forget about that one and use this one: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/4135 Use the last version by Vger. Or if your using an RC version use this one: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/5743 You wont go wrong with contributions by these two!
  9. I misunderstood the first post. I thought you installed download controller. If you install download controller, everything will work just as I stated earlier and your downloads will be secure. And to be on the same foot here, PayPalIPN will not update the status of an order unless payment clears. What you took the time to explain in your last post is a very old/well known "flaw" with osCommerce. Downloadcontroller with correct it. The super download shop will as well.
  10. Download controller releases downloads when the order is updated to a certian status. Paypal IPN will update to the status you tell it too once payment clears with paypal. Therefore they work great together.

    USPS for those interested

    It s apparent you dont know a flying flip what your talking about. Why dont you take that thanks a hide it someplace. Some people actually could use that module and would be willing to sign up on a place thats been around nearly as long as this place has. Thats a place that doesnt need advertising, do a search and youll find their name plastered here as much as osCommerce is there. Puta

    USPS for those interested

    Chain Reaction edition of osCommerce has released a USPS module that is fully functional minus insurance. If you have an older version of USPS Methods installed and are having problems then you can overwrite your existing includes/modules/shipping/usps.php file with the new one. If you do not have methods then you should download and install it first. http://www.creloaded.com/f89/US_Postal_Ser...ile_detail.html

    Article Manager v1.0

    You cant upload pics like you do the products without a lot of coding, but you can install something like the FCKEDITOR and easily place pictures into your articles.
  16. No payments here on the forums. This is a place for free help, and one of few places for help. Years, so long as you keep it updated to the newer php and sql codes when they come out. Joe usually starts out trying to install it. Sometimes Joe needs help becuase he is not savvy in these things. He has to search around, look at people here and go for recommendations, you cannot request paid help on these forums. Does the average user of osCommerce can install custom osCommerce module (with file copying and SQL operations) or is it always outsourced to module developers and consultants? osCommerce is open source, Everyone has full permission to try anything they want with the code, so long as they honor the GNU open source rules When average user of osCommerce has a specific need for a feature - what does he do? Calls a consultant or tries to fix it himself? Whatever he is more comfortable with. If he had a lot of help before, he will probally contact someone else to do it. If he tried and did succeed with things before, he will probally try to see if he can add the feature himself. I can see all these plugins for sale for osCommerce - so how people deal with installation and techsupport after they buy them? Does the plugin maker provide techsupport for installation? The plugin maker should provide support if he makes it. Always look at their site first to get an idea if they will really stand behind what they make, look for install tips, questions and answers, maybe a forum. Beware the ones that offer the plugin for sale, but show no signs of helping you. Always ask here first if you find a plugin you want to buy but arent sure . Some people may encrypt the plugins they make so that you can not further alter it. All plugins here, we call contributions, and all are free. Some have very good support topics, others dont. Sometimes you wont get an answer here, more than likely becuase it is a repetative question and the answer can be found with a google search of these forums.
  17. LOL Nope, thats why I have customers. I execute code, they use what I give them. Appears that way. http://www.oscommerce.com/solutions/documentation

    Article Manager v1.0

    I think its exactly what I told you. If you do what I recommended you will more than likely be taking column right out along the way.

    Article Manager v1.0

    I dont think its anything anyone can fix for you as it has to do with blending into your template. You should start by opening your index.php and articles.php. These two files are very simular. Then look for blocks of HTML code and change them in articles.php to match index.php line by line. Ignore all php as thats not the problem. Ive seen the exact thing before and thats how I did it.

    Article Manager v1.0

    You will have to weed through the HTML. Somewhere along the way of blending it to your template something got left out.

    How to re-size shop

    You can change your box size in includes/application_top.php Your site size could be changed by finding the first ltable in each of your catalog/root files, change 100% to your desired px size. In index.php you would change it twice. Once on the first table you find at the top after </head> and <body> tags, the second near the bottom where it has a comment about show the defualt page.

    Optimized also_purchased_products module

    It shows up on products that have been purchased together. So if I bought widget a and widget b on the same order then when someone came in and looked at widget a they would see customers who bought this also purchased widget b. You may have to do some ordering yourself to get it to start showing up.

    Complex Shipping - Can this be done ?

    I use the code for zero weight skips shipping. Then you must assign a weight to any products being shipped no matter what type of shipping you use. It only needs to be a pound if your not worried about true weight, just something to tell the cart those items get shipping. Then your items with zero weight dont get charged shipping, and if thats all thats in the cart then checkout will skip the shipping page completely. If you have a ton of products already in place, I recommend also installing Emmets database ammender, you can add a shipping weight to all products at once, then go back and manually remove the weight from the ones that get free shipping.

    Header Tags SEO

    I dont know about sts, but by viewing your source code , I came up with this, YOU will need to modify it to get it to work. But its a start. You probally should cut the lettering from your current image and stick that image as a background in the table and then use the lettering for your logo. Note that I have cut your javascript out, Only to save space on the thread here, put it back in where I placed "CUT SCRIPT" <table width="100%" align="center" height="110" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="#319340"> <tr> <td width="10"> </td> <td valign="top" align="left"> <script language=Javascript><!-- CUT SCRIPT //--></script></td> <td width="10"> </td> <td align="left"><?php echo'<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, '', 'NONSSL') . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'geeklogo.jpg', (tep_not_null($header_tags_array['logo_text']) ? $header_tags_array['logo_text'] : STORE_NAME)) . '</a>'; ?></td> <td width="10"> </td> </tr> </table> <table bgcolor="#000000" border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="1"> <tr class="headerNavigation"> <td class="headerNavigation"> <a href="https://helpcomputergeek.sslpowered.com//catalog/index.php" class="headerNavigation">Home</a> » <a href="https://helpcomputergeek.sslpowered.com//catalog/privacy.php" class="headerNavigation">Privacy Notice</a></td> <td align="right" class="headerNavigation"><a href=https://helpcomputergeek.sslpowered.com//catalog/account.php class="headerNavigation">My Account</a> | <a href=https://helpcomputergeek.sslpowered.com//catalog/shopping_cart.php class="headerNavigation">Cart Contents</a> | <a href=https://helpcomputergeek.sslpowered.com//catalog/checkout_shipping.php class="headerNavigation">Checkout</a> </td> </tr> </table>

    It sounds like you dont have a clickable logo. If you can figure out a way to put one in, then you really should to take full advantage of this great contribution. Mind showing a link to your site?
