What are the permissions settings on the images directory? Have you checked the settings using your hosts filemanager? Some hosts won't allow changing them from an ftp program.

 

Jack

 

Permissions setting on the images directory: 777 using my ftp program. I havent checked the setting using my host's filemanager. Is this different to my CPanel? Should I ask my host about this?

What does the warning at the top of page control say regarding permissions (you may have to enable that option in admin->Configuration->My Store if it isn't showing)?

There was a mistake made in the product_info.php changes, assuming it worked beforehand. You need to reload your original file and try the changes again, one at a time, to find the mistake.

You should ask in the STS support thread.

Use the option in fill tags to find them.

You need to have the latest version installed. Then go to fill tags, click on the missing tags checkbox and update. The output will give you an id of the missing item. I'm going to change that to a link but for now you need to look them up manually.

Thanks, I installed perfectly and it worked great.

 

Then I added a category tree and my breadcrumbs don't work on the new tree.. but still work on the old.

 

New tree is sports. Old is tools.

 

Please see www.bluebuyers.com and suggest ways for me to fix it. Is this a common problem? I'm a bit of an oscommerce newbie.

 

Thanks,

Al

Hi Jack,

 

With the 2 Jun update, we started to get osc category names rendered in front of product tags (in Titles), whether or not we wanted them.. The following is how we fixed it, to work as per the older HTC contribution. This title change may be as intended, but we needed to keep our sites working the same as prior.

 

header_tags line 80

 

if($pageTags['append_category'] == 1) {
	$catStr = "select c.categories_htc_title_tag as htc_title_tag from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " c, " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_TO_CATEGORIES . " p2c where c.categories_id = p2c.categories_id and p2c.products_id = '" . (int)$the_product_info['products_id'] . "' and language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'";
} else {
	$catStr = "select null as htc_title_tag;";
}
if($pageTags['append_manufacturer'] == 1) {
	$manStr = "select mi.manufacturers_htc_title_tag as htc_title_tag, mi.manufacturers_htc_desc_tag as htc_desc_tag, mi.manufacturers_htc_keywords_tag as htc_keywords_tag from " . TABLE_MANUFACTURERS . " m LEFT JOIN " . TABLE_MANUFACTURERS_INFO . " mi on m.manufacturers_id = mi.manufacturers_id  where m.manufacturers_id = '" . (int)$the_product_info['manufacturers_id'] . "' and mi.languages_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' LIMIT 1";
} else {
	$manStr = "select null as htc_title_tag";
}

 

 

All the best,

I don't know what you mean by "added a category tree," but if Header Tags was working and you added some contribution and that caused it to fail, then the problem is with the other contribution, or so it would seem.

hello jack,thanks for your add-on,it is great!

But I met a problem:

I have wrote meta tags for index.php on admin-header tags seo-page control,it works on homepages well.But this meta tags also work for each categories,I want each categories have its unique meta tags,and fill unique meta tags on admin-catalog,but at last the categories don't show unique meta tags,it still alway show index's meta tags.

For example:

I set index.php title as "aaa,aaa,aaa" on admin-header tags seo-page control ,and set unique title "bbb,bbb,bbb" for a category on admin-catalog,at last the title meta is still "aaa,aaa,aaa"

Can you fix this problem?

Hmm. I did that before posting here like a good girl. I just reread it again, something I am missing???

 

Nothing addresses the issue back to page 22, I have most current version and have re-read instructions.

 

Not being a n00b to this, I too was a little perplexed at the install instructions, update instructions, multiple directories as well - perhaps just tired and,

 

feeling n00bish

That's how it currently works but I'll look into changing that.

So what happened when you went to fill tags and clicked on the show missing tags checkbox?

And I notice there is a site www.omarskicks.com,it do have unique meta tags for each category,I don't know how it does that.But I'm sure this site have installed header tags seo or header tags controller,hope you can take a look at it.

Thanks again,so many people get great help from you.

How are you!? I'm enjoying your contribution, thanks for your hard work.

 

I have a question - perhaps I'm missing something here - but I can't seem to get the social bookmarks to display. Is there something more I am supposed to do, other than enable them in admin? I couldn't see any documentation for their use.

 

I am using the latest version of STS.

 

TIA

 

Kind regards
