[Contribution] SEO-G

Recommended Posts

You were right! :blush: If I out comment the line "Options +FollowSymLinks" the osc shop works fine. But when I run the real .htaccess file on the server it crash the whole site and gives me an 'Internal Server Error'.

When you say the real .htaccess what do you mean? I thought you posted the entire .htaccess earlier.

 

Can you recommend a good host, which support the necessary moduls at their server! :lol:

IF you say the rewrite works then is a question what other lines your .htaccess has that causes the 500 error.

 

I cannot recommend a host by name, goes against the forum rules but you can search the web for hosts and look for the following:

 

Apache Server

PHP Support

MySql Support

phpmyadmin with the host's panel

- as a minimum for your osc store

 

there is a link here:

http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?showtopic=267312

that talks about things to look for

Can you tell me what modules need to be installed on the server in order for this contribution to run.

 

I guess what I am asking is is there a specific rewrite module required to run it?

 

I have tried setting this up locally and it does not work I have copied the files in the contribution over to the vanilla install and amended the .htaccess file. The back end works and I set up the linkage as mentioned on the forum and instructions.

 

When I call the shop in my browser it does a 404 not found error on the category pages. Is this down to incorrect set up or incorrect htaccess file or neither and it being my local machine not have a module installed?

 

I have also tried commenting out the line which has been mentioned above but this does nothing.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated as this will really help my store with SEO.

 

 

Thanks

what you mean specific rewrite? you need to have the mod_rewrite module for apache enabled. 404 usually means incorrect .htaccess or no rewrite (or the root.php is not there).

When I say the real .htaccess; then I found out that I named the .htaccess this way: ".htacces" so i forgot a "s" :blush:

It is my whole .htaccess file I posted earlier.

 

The reason of the server fail: I think its because my server do not understand .htaccess files in general?

I don't think so, as far I can tell, the response shows Apache. So it should support the .htaccess and mod_rewrite. Can you ask your host about it? If they have the mod rewrite enabled on their end? In need be, send them the content of your .htaccess file so they can try it.

Yes, the new version solved my problems. Thank you for your hard work.

Great mod! Loved it... I just was just wondering if you could help with one small issue I am running into.

 

I am running the "Additional Images V2.0.0" mod (by zaenal and modified by HelloMan) along with "SEO_G V1.20" and the popup function does not return the images when SEO_G is on! Any suggestions?

 

In order to solve this minor issue, I would have no problem if SEO_G disconsidered the popup and kept the original OSC url. However, if there is a way to have SEO_G run along with "Additional Images" it would be perfect!

 

I will leave it SEO_G on for now so if you have the opportunity to check it out it follows the link:

 

homepage: http://www.bknbrazil.com

product page: http://www.bknbrazil.com/product/brazilian...-set-id118.html

popup page for the product: http://www.bknbrazil.com/popup_add_image_pid/118.html

 

Thank you in advance and congrats for this awesome mod.

Mark,

 

I just installed your awesome contrib! Thank you so much for such a great contrib and also for such detailed and informative instructions. Simply awesome! After installing I just have a couple questions regarding the XML Sitemap part of this. so

 

I understand that the urls are created progressivly so I checked the xml file and see that the only urls in it are of urls that have been visited. I use another sitemap contrib, so I'm wondering...

 

1. When I run my other sitemap generator, should it pick up the new (html) urls?

 

2. Is the only way to verify that the sitemap portion of this contrib picks up all my urls is for me to visit each one (to initially create them)?

 

3. Is there a way to run the sitemap portion while at the same time having it generate the new urls?

 

It's like you have two contribs in one and that is great, I certainly don't mind putting in the work to manually visit all the categories and products (over 2000).

 

Thanks again for such a great contrib...you will be seeing a donation from me!

 

Adam

The XML sitemap you use should generate links that match the ones you are exposing. It is the reason the XML support was added to SEO-G. If you have a site map, all products, all manufacturers contributions/modules you can load these 2-3 pages and most if not all of your important links will be generated.

there is, that particular implementation has its own application_top.inc.php to begin with. So it has to be customized in a similar way as with the regular application_top. But this goes outside the scope of the SEO-G

 

yep cheers that sorted it :)

well the main scripts for osc should operate from the root osc folder. SEO-G was designed with this principle. See if you can move the affiliates code to the osc root.

 

and whats the link or id of this contribution?

 

Hi here's the link: http://www.help4hosters.com/prod_affiliate.php

sorry, made a mistake.. it's not a contribution.

 

I know this is probably not a good idea, but I edited the seo_exclude.php to include the affiliates folder instead and it seems to work fine...

 

I added this code:

 $dir2 = dir(DIR_FS_CATALOG . "/affiliates/");
 while ($script = $dir2->read()) {
  if( strlen($script) < 5 || substr($script, -4, 4) != '.php')
  continue;
 $script_text = "affiliates/".$script;
 $scripts_array[strtolower($script)] = array(
		  'id' => $script, 
	  'text' => $script_text
	   );
}
$dir2->close();

I'm trying to install 1.20

 

The Step

B) Locate the following code

if ( (SEARCH_ENGINE_FRIENDLY_URLS == 'true') && ($search_engine_safe == true) ) {

 

Right above it add:

 

//-MS- SEO-G Added if( $connection == 'NONSSL' || SEO_PROCESS_SSL == 'true' ) $link = $g_seo_url->get_seo_url($link, $separator); //-MS- SEO-G Added EOM

Oh, sorry for misscopying and those smiles.

 

Step 8 b )

 

And my html_output.php is:

You must removed it from the html_output.php at some point. The SEO-G package includes the stock html_output.php to help with integration. So check that file from the archive should be very easy to see where to place that part of the code.

I know this is probably not a good idea, but I edited the seo_exclude.php to include the affiliates folder instead and it seems to work fine...

The module is designed to operate from the osc root. So in your case I've no idea what will happen generating links from sub-folders.

Hi guys i have my store in spanish and english lang, when i use my store in spanish lang i get all the SEO-G links displayed in english lang, for example http://www.domain.com/englishname.html instead spanishname.html, is possible to modify it?

 

Someone know how?

 

THanks in advance.

there is no direct multilingual support at this point. The documentation includes a link to an earlier post in this thread how to make the autobuilder generate links for a different language. And you would have to do several other mods to support it.

Hi Mark,

 

Just a quick one. Is the Header Tags contribution compatible with SEO-G as my header tags do not work anymore, was wondering if there was a wrok around for this or a known issue?

 

Cheers

Keith

What known issue? They can coexist. They're no conflicts between them as far I know. As long as you follow the manual instructions and you did not blindly overrided files, you should be ok.

Hi there, it looks like everything is working fine now, but after some pages:

http://www.marvuli.com/shop/specials.htm

there is this:

osCsid=f1df625c9b7b6589c89c41e1275a8dc1

as in:

http://www.marvuli.com/shop/specials.html?...89c41e1275a8dc1

How can I get rid of this?

you need to fix your cookies in your configure.php files. Not SEO-G related.
