Header Tags SEO

Recommended Posts

There appears to be something wrong with your configure file since those files go in the admin directory but the test code is looking in the shop directory.

Hi Jack,

 

Many thanks for the prompt reply, yes I noticed that the define('DIR_FS_ADMIN' in the admin config only had the directory of the root of the site contained, instead of the full path to the Admin folder. Strange how it didnt seem to affect anything else though, but anyway have added in the /admin/ directory and the entire "missing files" section has disappeared from the TEST page.

 

Thanks for your help :)

Hey guys!

 

How do I remove "p-44", "c-22" etc. at the end of the URLs?

This is the support thread for Header Tags SEO. It doesn't control the url's. Please ask your question in the appropriate support thread.

Hi Jack,

 

I have been using Header Tag SEO on my website about ear plugs. The contribution works okay however today I have tried to add another product and although I have updated the /product.info file, the results are not displayed.

 

You can see what I am referring to here.

 

Can you please advise what potentially I could be doing wrong? Also is the product.info file a generic file or was it only generated for that product?

 

Thanks and regards. Barry.

The product_info file is for all of your products. The link you supplied is not a valid url for products so it would seem your url rewriter has a problem. That has nothing to do with Header Tags.

Thank you Jack,

 

Sorry but I know it is not your concern but do you mind advising if the url rewriter is a contribution please?

i installed Header tag seo V_3.1.5, STS 4.5.8 and EP on a Fresh 2.2rc2a.

 

http://tiffanys.web.aplus.net/3addon/produ...amp;language=de

 

When view a product if non-english is seleted then right colume will go to bottom.

Select English to re position right colume. This will happen no matter STS On or Off.

 

After hours trying to find errors with files.

It magically worked after after I clicked fill all tags. When non-english language is selected, and all tags are cleared, column right will go to bottom in product_info page.

It this a bug?

If it works in english, then you either missed the file change for the language files or there are missing titles or tags for the non-english languages.

Hi Jack,

 

I ran my pages through http://validator.w3.org/ after installing the contribution. It is complaining that the header tag is using /> instead of > saying "NET-enabling start-tag requires SHORTTAG YES". Shouldn't we change header_tags.php so that it writes > as closing tag instead of /> ?

 

Thanks

If getting the code is important to you (I persoanally see it as a waste of time unless there are fatal errors), then you can change that code. Please read back a few posts to find the fix.

That comes from the Header Tags title for that product so it would you appear you haven't filled that in. Go to the products edit page in admin to check it.

It's an escape character php needs to understand the apostrophe. But it shouldn't be showing up in titles. It could be that you had it in the original text.

Hi Jack, first of all lots of thanks for this contribution, its incredible! The only thing that Ihave a little problem. Some articles are not displaying correctly (ive noticed that only happens in Explorer 8 and only withsome articles), because the right box goes under the article, here you can watch an example:

 

http://www.queguai.com/comof-doc-m44-p-247.html

 

I think that the problem is with this piece of code:

 

<?php /*** Begin Header Tags SEO ***/ ?>

<tr>

<td><?php echo tep_draw_separator('pixel_trans.gif', '100%', '10'); ?></td>

</tr>

<tr>

<td class="smallText" align="center"><?php echo TEXT_VIEWING; ?> 

<?php echo '<a title="' . $header_tags_array['title'] . '" href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $product_info['products_id'], 'NONSSL') . '"/# ' . $header_tags_array['title'] . '">' . $header_tags_array['title']; ?></a></td>

</tr>

<?php /*** End Header Tags SEO ***/ ?>

 

If you browse this page with chrome or firefox you can see it well, I think the problem is in that piece of code, you know how I could fix this problem?

 

Thanks in advance and regards for Spain,

 

Mauri

There's nothing wrong with the code that I can see. The sort of problem you are having is usually due to the code being installed incorrectly or the original code in the file isn't standard oscommerce code.

But why in other browsers the article is displayed correctly and not in Explorer 8? This only happens with certain articles....

I use IE 7 and it fails there too. Try using the file that comes with the contribuiton to see if that fails.

Thanks Jack, I'll leave them as it is. One more question, in categories table there are categories_htc_description and categories_htc_desc_tag columns. My understanding is categories_htc_desc_tag is used in header description tag and categories_htc_description is only used for displaying in product_info. Is it correct?

I have removed that code in the next version since others have mentioned it so the problem will be fixed then.

 

The categories_htc_description is used on the category pages, not products.

Hi Jack

 

Haven't been around here for a while but nice to see you still supporting this great contrib.

 

I have just installed a fresh version of OSC and followed the steps to install the latest version of this module.

 

When I go to fill tags however I get the following error message for each item:

 

 Failed to load page from shop: http://www.url.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=18&language=en

 

When actually following the url manually it works fine

 

I apologise if this has already been addressed but a search did not show any results.

 

Any ideas?
