Thanks for your contribution.

I just installed SEO-Meta-Tags-STS-1.0 it works, but a lot of things is showing up double on my site/sitemap.php. What am i doing wrong? My sitemap is babyfavorsandgifts.com/sitemap.php. Thanks, your help is really appreciated.

You didn't properly install 1.4. See the install instructions for those missing items.

 

As for other sitemap cotnributions, there are two others, that I am aware of. Sitemap MS2 has never been SEO friendly and lacks many of the features of the other two, last I checked. That may be different now since I don't keep up on them. The other is Dynamic Sitemap, which I also wrote. It has many short-comings that this one fixes. It also has an add-on for a google type sitemap. That is a mistake, as I have made known many times, and was the genisis of this one. But in answer to your question, if this one wasn't available, then Dyanmic Sitemap is the better of the other two.

 

Jack

 

Thank you. I got it working. And thanks for your answer to my question.

 

Also do you have a google SEO friendly rss/newsfeed/blog type mod that you have done or can you suggest one that is good to use? The one we are using isn't that great. TIA


Remember what the Bible says: He who is without sin, cast the first rock. And I shall smoketh it.

Seems to have installed ok, but when I press update in the boxes group control I get the following error:

 

Failed to read file /home/alisona/public_html//includes/boxes//Array

This problem was reported previously and someone posted what they did to fix it. I can't get it to fail so I don't know what is causing it. I'm would like to know though if you have a file in the includes/boxes/ directory named Array.php?

Thanks for quick response. No, I don't have a file named array.php

 

Everything appears to work ok, other than how to list products in the sitemap? Currently it only shows the categories www.oneofakind.org.uk/sitemap.php

You have to change the setting in admin->Configuration->Sitemap SEO to have it show the products.

Ok, nearly got it how I want it, but still a couple of minor changes if possible.

 

How do I reduce the ident spacing, currently it's:

 

Category

.........Sub Category

......................Product

 

Ideally I would like it more like:

 

Category

...Sub Category

......Product

 

Also, is it possible to change the default icons used for each level?

 

Thanks for all the help!

There's nothing in the admin section that will allow you to control either but I seem to recall explaining how to edit the code for the spacing. In any event, the classes/category_tree files would have to be edited for what you want to do.

I did see the reference to:

 

$spacer_string = '',

$spacer_multiplier = 1;

 

but altering these doesn't have any effect. Tried changing these in both category_tree.php and category_tree_no_products.php but nothing changes?

 

Also not sure how I could use these to reduce the spacing?

 

Thanks

You could try replacing the following line in category_tree.php

		 $result .= str_repeat($this->spacer_string, $this->spacer_multiplier * $level) . '<a class="sitemap" title="'. $category['name'] . '" href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, 'cPath=' . $category_link) . '">';

with

		 $result .= '<a class="sitemap" title="'. $category['name'] . '" href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, 'cPath=' . $category_link) . '">';

I might be silly now but if you open the readme file thing it says:

INSTALLATION - Clean install on osCommerce MS-2.2 , RC1, RC2 , RC2a

 

What does it mean by clean install ??

No modifications have been made to the original files.

I thought that is what it meant, so how do you use this if you have modded the files ??

Usually you would follow the instructions for a modified shop, otherwise compare the provided files with the stock osc files and your files.

Thanks for the help, but oddly no difference at all. I'm starting to wonder if I'm missing something.

I don't have any other ideas. I will put it on the list of things to look at for the next release but that might be a while.
