[CONTRIBUTION] Ultimate SEO URLs v2.1 - by Chemo

Recommended Posts

******** NOTE: STS USERS ONLY - Skip to step 1A. *********

******** NOTE: BTS USERS ONLY - Skip to step 1B. *********

Your shop is an STS shop if there is an includes/sts_templates/ directory.

Your shop is a BTS shop if there is a templates directory in the root directory.

 

 

hi i have got to this part of the install and mine does not have either of the above, does this mean it has been deleated? or have i got a later version since your post?

 

also same question regarding version

mine is as below.

 

// define the project version

define('PROJECT_VERSION', 'osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2 RC2a');

 

many thanks

andy

I'm getting this message in Google Webmaster Tools for some of our sitemap XML files, which I presume is related to the installation of this contribution: "URLs not followed

When we tested a sample of URLs from your Sitemap, we found that some URLs redirect to other locations. We recommend that your Sitemap contain URLs that point to the final destination (the redirect target) instead of redirecting to another URL." Any ideas on how to fix?

Hi

 

I have a new install with Ultimate SEO contrib added. Everything is working fine. I am looking to further modify the way a URL is displayed.

 

For e.g., I have my OSC installed with a /catalog directory. So my URLs look like (example): "http://www.mydomain.com/catalog/my-best-product-p-123.html"

 

I would like to remove /catalog from the URL address so that the above URL could read like: "http://www.mydomain.com/my-best-product-p-123.html"

 

Is this possible at all with a htaccess Rewrite / Redirect / Other?

 

Thank you.

 

JTM

No, you can't do it with the contribution. The correct way to do it is to move the shop to the root directory.

I'm actieve on the DUTCH Oscommerce forum. Now i have A problem with rewrite url of Ultimate_SEO_URLs_v2-2.2e for a while and nobody knows the answer. it Looks so simple but i don't get it... I have een OSc Multi language store Dutch and German

in AP URL Rewriting is this function possible, only the urls ar not as nice as Ultimate SEO!

 

The situation is as followed when i swith language i get at the and ?language=nl, ?language=en or?language=de like:

 

url.eu/my_file-name-c-68_94.html?language=nl

or

url.eu/my_file-name-c-68_94.html

 

it must become somthing linke this: url.eu/LANGUAGE/my_file-name-c-68_94.html

it must become somthing linke this: url.eu/NL/my_file-name-c-68_94.html

it must become somthing linke this: url.eu/EN/my_file-name-c-68_94.html

it must become somthing linke this: url.eu/DE/my_file-name-c-68_94.html

 

the current .htaccess code is:

 

RewriteRule ^(.*)-p-(.*).html$ product_info.php?products_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

RewriteRule ^(.*)-c-(.*).html$ index.php?cPath=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

RewriteRule ^(.*)-m-([0-9]+).html$ index.php?manufacturers_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

RewriteRule ^(.*)-pi-([0-9]+).html$ popup_image.php?pID=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

RewriteRule ^(.*)-t-([0-9]+).html$ articles.php?tPath=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

RewriteRule ^(.*)-a-([0-9]+).html$ article_info.php?articles_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

RewriteRule ^(.*)-au-(.*).html$ articles.php?authors_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

RewriteRule ^(.*)-pr-([0-9]+).html$ product_reviews.php?products_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

RewriteRule ^(.*)-pri-([0-9]+).html$ product_reviews_info.php?products_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

RewriteRule ^(.*)-links-(.*).html$ links.php?lPath=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

RewriteRule ^(.*)-by-(.*).html$ all-products.php?fl=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

RewriteRule ^(.*)-pm-([0-9]+).html$ extra_info_pages.php?pages_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

 

If possible I would take root in Dutch..

German url.eu/DE

and

English url.eu/EN

 

What to do? Thanks Alot!

Hi! Great contribution, thanks! I've installed this at http://www.nhuy.dk/shop and everything works fine except for extra info pages (in "Information" box) For all extra pages i get 404 Not found.

.htaccess is probably fine since this problem is limited to extra info pages only..

I would gladly turn SEO URLs off for extra info pages, if possible?

 

Any feedback is appreciated

In order for the rewrite to work with such a contribution, code changes need to be made to this contribution and it doesn't have those for that contribution. It does have the code changes for Information Manager and Page Editor, as I recall, and both of those are similar to Extra Info Pages. You can edit the code and make those changes yourself, though they are not trivial, or install one of the other contributions.

Because of site not getting any unique visitors, I thought I post this in general support and created this thread here. After receiving help from some members, I am assuming part of this issue deals with this contribution -Ultimate SEO URLs. Had a slight error and after rechecking the install instructions, found a slight error. Which did correct most of my issues. But one final issue and I still am not able to find a solution.

 

Going to manufacturers drop down box to select a title, in the browser address bar, it displays this: http://www.greatdiscounts4u.com/?manufacturers_id=8. But after reading a few post, that is not correct. I have cleared cache and reloaded browser just to be sure.

That isn't a properly formatted link (where's the index.php?) so it seems there is a mistake in your code.

Very sorry, now I am confused and ready to pull my hair out. So if no index.php in link, it means it is not correct? When I put the mouse over one of the category name, it displays http://www.greatdiscounts4u.com/auto-c-8.html This has no index.php in the link and I was told that was correct link.

 

Yes I have Header Tags SEO and Ultimate SEO URLS installed. And according to Google ANALYTICS, I've only had one hit to my site since June 12th and that was from the forum here. So that is why I started this thread. I have looked at both of these installs over and over checking for any mistakes in the installation instructions. Checked settings in admin and catalog/.htaccess

It sounds like you removed the index.php from your FILENAME_DEFAULT definition, or something similar, which is incorrect. You should get rid of the index.php in links but only if there are not any arguments in the url. See this thread.

I did restore my store back to my last backup to eliminate any typo errors if that was the cause. I viewed several live stores that had both Header Tags SEO and SEO URLS installed to see what their URLS looked like when selecting a category or manufacturers and also at the product_info page. Viewing the source code, one can tell if HT is installed and by the URL in address bar if SEO URLS is installed. Noticed there were around three different displays. Wish there is a sample site that one can view what the correct URL for category, manufacturers and product_info should look like.

 

Below is a few URLs and am wondering which one is correct:

For the first propblem you don't mention the url so I can only guess that the path is wrong.

 

For the second, I can't imagine what caused that. Use the uninstall option in the settings, assuming it works, and refresh your shop to reinstall. Maybe that will clear it up.

didnt like uninstalling the second time, but what i found that the settings turned back to english just before it disappeared trying to get rid of it

replaced the seo.class.php, reset_seo_cache.php and the general.php with fresh files to get it off my admin.

 

so im assuming that means there was an issue with one of the categories.php, html_output.php or application_top.php as these were back to original files during admin cleanup and third uninstall.

I think ill leave it as is for tonight, as see what the forum says tomorrow night

 

donno what this could be ... might sleep on it

cheers,

To clarify, the uninstall in admin only uninstalls the atabase changes so the file changes are still there unless you replace those.

i did a file and a db backup before i installed, so i replaced the whole website via FTP, and then did a db restore

should fix it yeah? this is after i did the admin uninstall

only thing it didnt like were the config files being replaced, i went thro the code, didnt look like it had changed .... i stand to be corrected on that tho
