Header Tags SEO

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

How can I figure out if I have a BTS or STS oscommerce shop?

 

Best regards,

 

Paulo

A BTS shop has a templates directory in the root. A STS shop has a STS directory in the includes directory.

Hi.

 

Is it possible to put the header category description/title into the product information pages also for this contribution.

 

So it shows category information for that product?

 

Thanks

It is possible to be code but the contribution doesn't have the code in place for it.

Hi Jack,

Thanks for your work!

 

Bug (?) Report:

I took a look at the generated html for a product_information page.

I found this in the headertags:

<meta name="Description" content="Gambeson "Leopold"" />

 

The fact that I have a product with quotes (") in the name messes up the html.

In this case the product name was: Gambeson "Leopold"

Please make a release with a fix for this.

My own solution looks like this and I'm quiet sure that's the way to go:

 

in catalog/includes/header_tags.php replace:

echo ' <meta name="Description" content="' . $header_tags_array['desc'] . '" />' . "\n";
echo ' <meta name="Keywords" content="' . $header_tags_array['keywords'] . '" />' . "\n";

with:

echo ' <meta name="Description" content="' . htmlspecialchars($header_tags_array['desc']) . '" />' . "\n";
echo ' <meta name="Keywords" content="' . htmlspecialchars($header_tags_array['keywords']) . '" />' . "\n";

 

The same type of error exists in catalog/product_info.php where

<a name="<?php echo $header_tags_array['title']; ?>"></a>

Should be replaced with:

<a name="<?php echo htmlspecialchars($header_tags_array['title']); ?>"></a>

It might also exist elsewhere. I guess you would know better than me. :)

Hi

Hope someone can help me. I have an installation which is pretty unmodified, ie very few contributions added. I wanted to keep it clean until I got the main ones installed for SEO.

The database was created using a version of OSC last January. I reinstalled in July this year and copied over my database. Everything works fine except I get errors when trying to create product attributes. I am unable to resolve these as my posts do not get answered.

Thats the background to my database which may be relevant to my problem with headertags.

 

I started the install using headertags_seo_install.php. It immediately throw up the following error:

 

1005 - Can't create table '.\theinkjetmarket\headertags_default.frm' (errno: 121)

 

CREATE TABLE headertags_default (default_title varchar(255) default NULL, default_description varchar(255) default NULL, default_keywords varchar(255) default NULL, default_logo_text varchar(255) default NULL, default_logo_append_group tinyint(1) default 1 NOT NULL, default_logo_append_category tinyint(1) default 1 NOT NULL, default_logo_append_manufacturer tinyint(1) default 1 NOT NULL, default_logo_append_product tinyint(1) default 1 NOT NULL, meta_google tinyint(1) default 0 NOT NULL, meta_language tinyint(1) default 0 NOT NULL, meta_noodp tinyint(1) default 1 NOT NULL, meta_noydir tinyint(1) default 1 NOT NULL, meta_replyto tinyint(1) default 0 NOT NULL, meta_revisit tinyint(1) default 0 NOT NULL, meta_robots tinyint(1) default 0 NOT NULL, meta_unspam tinyint(1) default 0 NOT NULL, language_id int DEFAULT '1' NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (default_title, language_id), KEY idx_default_title (default_title))

 

[TEP STOP]

 

Again this is a database error and I dont have any knowledge in this area to know where to start.

 

Any help would be really appreciated.

 

Thank you

Garry

There's already in code in place to remove such tags. Are you using the latest version? If so, were the descriptions already in place when you installed the latest Header Tags, i.e., via an update? If so, then you will need to either run Fill Tags or go to the products edit page and save it.

That doesn't look like a normal error. I suggest running the uninstall script and trying again. If it fails, run the uninstall again and use phpmyadmin to load the sql file. If that fails, then there is something wrong with your database since that file should work no matter what.

Thanks for that Jack.

 

It still did not work. Went into PHPMYADMIN and entered the following code into the SQL window:

 

CREATE TABLE headertags_default (default_title varchar(255) default NULL, default_description varchar(255) default NULL, default_keywords varchar(255) default NULL, default_logo_text varchar(255) default NULL, default_logo_append_group tinyint(1) default 1 NOT NULL, default_logo_append_category tinyint(1) default 1 NOT NULL, default_logo_append_manufacturer tinyint(1) default 1 NOT NULL, default_logo_append_product tinyint(1) default 1 NOT NULL, meta_google tinyint(1) default 0 NOT NULL, meta_language tinyint(1) default 0 NOT NULL, meta_noodp tinyint(1) default 1 NOT NULL, meta_noydir tinyint(1) default 1 NOT NULL, meta_replyto tinyint(1) default 0 NOT NULL, meta_revisit tinyint(1) default 0 NOT NULL, meta_robots tinyint(1) default 0 NOT NULL, meta_unspam tinyint(1) default 0 NOT NULL, language_id int DEFAULT '1' NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (default_title, language_id), KEY idx_default_title (default_title))

 

I still get the same error.

 

Have you got any ideas on what might be wrong. If it is any help I could easily zip and send the database files?

Hi all

 

I'm trying to install Header Tags SEO on a OsCommerce RC2 shop with STS 4.58 on a windows server (and localhost) and it always give me the following errors:

Hi Jack

Getting a bit further. I used first install option in your instructions. I imported headertags_seo.sql. This has created headertags_default.

However I now get this error:

 

Error

SQL query:

 

INSERT INTO configuration( configuration_id, configuration_title, configuration_key, configuration_value, configuration_description, configuration_group_id, sort_order, set_function, date_added, use_function )

VALUES (

 

'', 'Automatically Add New Pages', 'HEADER_TAGS_AUTO_ADD_PAGES', 'true', 'Adds any new pages when Page Control is accessed<br>(true=on false=off)', '543', '3', 'tep_cfg_select_option(array(\'true\', \'false\'), ', now( ) , NULL

);

 

 

 

MySQL said:

 

#1366 - Incorrect integer value: '' for column 'configuration_id' at row 1

 

Are we getting somewhere?

There is a conversion script but it is not good for all versions. I only supported it for the first few versions but it involved too much effort to keep that up. The best way is to use the uninstall and install scripts and then make all of the file changes as mentioned in the directions. But that will clear any tags you have in there. If you want to save those, then you will have to install the changes manually (which is the same in either case) and then use the update sql file. You will still lose whatever pages you have added but that is usually no more than a handful at most.

That's strange that you get the same error since the one you mentioned isn't one phpmyadmin can output, to my knowledge. I don't know what could be causing that but it is beyond of the scope of this support thread.

The errors are normal for a Windows/STS setup.

 

The database error indicates a problem with your database. Perhaps you upgraded to a new version and didn't make the correct database changes?

Hi Jack,

 

First of all, thank you for this great contrib and for your help.

 

I've been looking the database but all fields are correct and correspond to the correct version of Header Tags SEO. I tried to enter data with something like:

 

INSERT INTO `headertags` ( `page_name` , `page_title` , `page_description` , `page_keywords` , `page_logo`, `append_default_title` , `append_default_description` , `append_default_keywords`, `append_default_logo`, `append_category`, `append_manufacturer`, `append_product`, `append_root`, `sortorder_title` , `sortorder_description` , `sortorder_keywords` , `sortorder_logo` , `sortorder_category` , `sortorder_manufacturer`, `sortorder_product`, `sortorder_root`, `language_id` )

VALUES ('privacy.php', 'New Home Page Title', 'new description', 'new keywords1,keywords2', 'new logo text', '0', '0', '0', '0', '0', '0', '1', '1', '0', '0', '0', '0', '0', '0', '10', '1', '1');

 

and it works fine. I have been replacing and verifying all files, but no way... It seems like if the header_tags_seo.php page wasn't sending the right instruction (or no data as ,", suggests, which could explain the incorrect integer error)... The only way to make it work is to mark ALL options and sort order numbers.

I think it has something to do with my admin/includes/configure.php file?

 

In addition I have noticed in admin that my modules are missing and the catalog function cannot find the images directory.

 

I have placed the catalog folder in the root directory of my webspace. Obviousely index.psp is in there. so to get the site up I have to address it as:

 

www.theinkjetmarket.co.uk/catalog/index.php.

 

Here is a copy of my admin configure file, can you see anything wrong with it?

Missing File Error:

Cannot find file home/public_html/catalog/admin/header_tags_seo.php.

There's no username in the path so it would seem your configure file is incorrect. Please post that question in the general support forum since it doesn't have to do with Header Tags.

Hi Jack,

I have installed this contribution and everything seems to be working fine except for my categories no longer display my products. They are there, you can view them through search but the categories bring back nothing. I have narrowed it down to the index page, but do not know where to look for the issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated

 

Thanks!

Products are only shown by the products_info page so you most likely made a mistake on those changes. Restore your original and make the changes one at a time to see where the failure occurs.

Hello Jack,

 

Is this scenario possible with Header Tags SEO?

 

On most competitor's websites that sell the same products as myself, I've noticed the same things when I view the page source. This is how their meta tags are set up or generated:

 

<title>Artist CD Title</title>

 

<meta name="description" content="Artist CD Title on sale for $9.99 at [website] then it gives an excerpt from the actual description">

<meta name="keywords" content="Artist CD Title followed by a list of keywords">

 

(1) To me that is a strange generation of meta tag content

 

(2) Obviously it works because all the competitor's I compared were on the first two pages of Google's search results. I used to have better or just as good placement.

 

I know that doesn't substitute for well written content and good page structure.

 

I guess another question would be how SE bots read webpage content? Left to right, top to bottom as humans do or in some specially programmed manner.

 

Would that be a possible solution to the duplicate content issue I've been concerned about in the other forum? I'm trying to get my website ready for the holiday season and want it to be in good shape. Also, it seems my website is being visited by googlebot often and its constantly updating content daily.

 

Thanks for any help and/or guidance.
