Header Tags for novices

Recommended Posts

Hi Ken thats the one ive downloaded done it 3 times now. I will try once more just to be sure. Sorry for being a pain.. RIGHT not 100% sure but i think my FTP was uploading it in ASCII. I have just deleted all files and re uploaded and I think that its ok. I know the Admin bit is ok now but just gunna see if it actually puts the tags into the products.

Hi Phil

 

It should work now (up to 300 products). something strange there but as a quick fix, that'd do. just make ure you do not replace the header_tags_edit.php

AHHH Think i may have done that!! Will this ruin the whole install then?? Think i have bogged it up. I can see up to 300 products but when i add the tags it says they have been done but when looking at product code they are not.

You used the wrong header tag code for thr product info.php which i have corrected but it seems you may have another header tag (title in particular) installed.

 

I tested the trodutional bear family and it shows the customised desc & keywrods.

...but the one on the googlecode site is a bit out of date...

 

The above is referring to a bit of code in the edit_header_tags.php that may affect some servers. some whether you are affected or not, you can do the following:

 

find lines 135/136

																		 <form name="update" method="POST" action="<?php echo "$PHP_SELF?action=update&page=$page&sort_by=$sort_by&cPath=$current_category_id&row_by_page=$row_by_page&manufacturer=$manufacturer"; ?>">
								<td align="right" valign="middle"><?php echo tep_image_submit('button_update.gif', IMAGE_UPDATE, "action=update&cPath=$current_category_id&page=$page&sort_by=$sort_by&row_by_page=$row_by_page");?>  </td>

replace it with

									<?php echo tep_draw_form('update', FILENAME_HEADER_TAGS_EDIT, "action=update&page=$page&cPath=$current_category_id&row_by_page=$row_by_page&manufacturer=$manufacturer", 'post'); ?>
								<td align="right" valign="middle"><?php echo tep_image_submit('button_update.gif', IMAGE_UPDATE, "action=update&cPath=$current_category_id&page=$page&row_by_page=$row_by_page");?>  </td>

this issue was dealt with a while ago on this support thread.

Hi Ken,

 

I have no choice but to put my request here since my post in the General Support got deleted and no one replied to it. Hence I am really hoping that you help me out. Here is the problem which I had put up:

 

Hi,

 

My website is http://www.retaildepot.ca. I just want to say that that everything else about Header Tags works like a charm. The only problem is while in my main Admin section. I clicked on "Product Meta Tags" to edit the Title and Meta tags for my individual products. Initially it is showing my 1-4 out of 7 products. But it simply won't show me the other remaining 3 products which are on the next page. Even if I change the "Display Products per page" to a higher number it still displays the initial 4 products. So because of this I am only restricted to edit the 4 products I see there. What could be the possible solution for this problem?

 

P.S. If you want I can send you the required code for any page you need to rectify this.

 

Regards,

 

Gary.

it is controlled by "maximum display search results" in configuration - max. value. you can also change it in the file header_tags_edit.php. search for "MAX_DISPLAY_SEARCH_RESULTS" and change it to, say, 300.

Thanks Ken,

 

But I was not able to find the file header_tags_edit.php. Where exactly is it? I went through all the folders and files and couldn't find it. I also did a hard disk search (Ctrl+F) and still no sign of that file. Can you please give me the exact path of the file where "MAX_DISPLAY_SEARCH_RESULTS" is located?

 

Regards,

 

Gary.

as you said above, after clicking on Product Meta Tags, look at your browser's address bar, that will tell you the file name & its location, itd be under your admin folder. download it to your pc, then edit it.

and make sure you are NOT looking at or searching someone else computer :)

No, SSL shouldn't be the problem. what version of osc you are using? is your server/php register_globals ON or OFF?

that'd be OK. btw, you should follow the Contribution link in my signature to download the contribution & the instruction file, just in case.

Good luck!

Thanks a lot Ken. Everything works perfectly now. Just a suggestion. Why don't you include this instruction in your download package? Then new users can easily get it fom there since your instructions are very clear.

Gary.

 

when several people reported the same problem then there could well be a problem in the contribution so I decided to take a look and indeed I discovered the file header_tags_edit.php in version 4.0 was the wrong one in that it would have a problem of not being able to set/change row number per page on servers with register_globals set to OFF. This is more a problem as hosts are upgrading to PHP5, which would set register_globals to OFF by default.

 

I have now released version 5.0 (follow the Contribution link in my signature to download), which is now including installation instructions.

 

Thanks to all those who reported the problem recently!

Hi guys,

 

I just installed header tags for novices on a 2.2RCa install, have respected all the steps in the installation procedures and still, I have stumbled upon this error whenever I try to access the index.php

 

Fatal error: Call to undefined function tep_db_query() in /home/rcro/public_html/index.php on line 44

 

Now, line 44 in my index.php file states :

$cat_names_query = tep_db_query("SELECT categories_name FROM " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " WHERE language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'" . " ORDER BY RAND()");

 

Unfortunately my php skills are extremely limited and I don't really understand the issue at hand here. Can someone give me a hand ? If not taking the installation to its end (working headers) at least putting the website back online would be great :).

 

 

Thanks beforehand.

tep_db_query is a standard osc function defined in database.php and is included in application_top.php of every file, so dont know why it would be missing.

 

perhaps you could post the first 50 lines or so of your index.php here?
