Ultimate Seo Urls 5 Pro

Recommended Posts

 

It is dangerous though .. what if a product was named: -

This must be the greatest wiggit

 

Restrict it to two words and you could end up with: -

 

this-must-p-37.html :)

 

Yes, you are right. But every SEO optimiser knows that when you make the title of the product the main key words should be on the 1st place -

better of all it should be first 4 words, it will increase your rating. If you have key words after - you will not be on the 1st page in most search engines.

You may test it yourself for ex. in Google search.

 

So if I know exactly that first 4 words contain key words I could shorten my link to these words.

I installed USU 5 and it works, but regarding multi language support I think you could change this part to look better:

 

Examples:

 

English index.php

www.mysite.com/index.php

 

German index.php

www.mysite.com/index.php/de

 

English product seo url

www.mysite.com/my-great-product-c-22.html

 

German product seo url

www.mysite.com/de/my-great-product-c-22.html

 

 

Why not add the german index to be www.mysite.com/de/index.php instead of www.mysite.com/index.php/de, just like products urls are rewritten?

Because it is not possible.

 

With a monolithic script it is easy .htaccess simply redirects all requests to index.php where the script can parse it.

 

With a file per function script ( like osCommerce ) this is not possible. ( well it is possible but not without a sizeable hardcoded .htaccess which is bad news ).

I just installed this plugin but I ran into some problems right away.

When I go mouseover product link than I would get this link for example:

 

www.mysite.com/product_info.php/printer-lexmark-e120

 

but when I click on it to see product detail then result is that Product is not found, and URL in the browser is following:

 

www.mysite.com/product_info.php/index.php

 

and I can not go back with browser back button as it will keep loading this latest page

 

How to fix this ?

I checked everything and I did everything by the book, I mean by instructions provided with package I downloaded. These instructions says that link should look like www.mysite.com/catalog/index.php/hardware-c-1, but like I wrote above, my link looks like:

www.mysite.com/product_info.php/hardware-c-1 and actually when you click on it, page without product appears saying Product not found and in browser address but it is displayed like following: www.mysite.com/product_info.php/index.php

 

Anyone know what is it about and how to fix this please?

Hi

i installed the last version of Ultimate Seo Urls 5 PRO (r205) of 21 Mar 2011 and it works fine , but i found this problem on my site:

 

when copy and past the url of a my product description from a browser to an other one, i will get:

 

Error!

Unable to determine the page link!

 

also, if i click on the direct link of a my product description from google, i will get the same problem:

 

Error!

Unable to determine the page link!

 

 

Also if i disable the addon i still get this problem, i got hosting linux with php5 , in the file .htaccess i added also:

 

php_flag register_globals On

php_value register_long_arrays On

 

without any positive change...

 

any solution? thanks for your support

Not a USU5 problem. The standard tep_href_link() wrapper of osCommerce issues that error when $page is passed into the wrapper as a null value.

This is impossible unless includes/filenames.php has the incorrect file names entered for the standard defines.

Dear Mr. Rob,

 

We just installed this in our website in lieu of Chemo's Ultimate_SEO_URLs.

 

After this installation, we called a modified googlefeeder.php file for generating the google feed in our website and it started showing the '0' [zero] price for all the products in our website. We had to restore the old db backup due to this.

 

We had changed the following code in googlefeeder.php

 include_once('includes/classes/seo.class.php');
 $seo_urls = new SEO_URL($languages_id);

 function tep_href_link($page = '', $parameters = '', $connection = 'NONSSL', $add_session_id = true, $search_engine_safe = true) {
    global $seo_urls;
    return $seo_urls->href_link($page, $parameters, $connection, $add_session_id);
 }
}

 

to

 require_once 'includes/application_top.php';

 

 

We have tried with the following code:

if (! function_exists("tep_not_null")) {
  function tep_not_null($value) {
     if (is_array($value)) {
        return ((sizeof($value) > 0) ? true : false);
     } else {
        return  ((($value != '') && (strtolower($value) != 'null') && (strlen(trim($value)) > 0)) ? true : false);
     }
  }
}

if(SEO_ENABLED=='true'){
 require_once DIR_WS_MODULES . 'ultimate_seo_urls5/main/usu5.php';

 function tep_href_link( $page = '', $parameters = '', $connection = 'NONSSL', $add_session_id = true, $search_engine_safe = true ) {
   return Usu_Main::i()->hrefLink( $page, $parameters, $connection, $add_session_id, $search_engine_safe );
 }
}

if(SEO_ENABLED=='true'){
  $productURL = 'product_info.php'; 
  $productParam = "products_id=";   
}else{
  $productURL = HTTP_SERVER.'/product_info.php/products_id/';
}

 

and got the following error message:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function tep_output_string() in ....../public_html/includes/modules/ultimate_seo_urls5/includes/usu_general_functions.php on line 64

 

Kindly guide us as to what to do in this regard.

 

Thanks,

This feeder file is creating standard URLs ["product_info.php?products_id=**"] only even with default ('SEO_ENABLED','true') setting. How to get SEO URLs? Please let us know.

We have the Ultimate Seo Urls 5 Pro and we have also set this SEO_ENABLED setting to true [it is the default one]. Our website URLs are SEO URLs. But this feeder is not generating SEO URLs. It used to generate SEO URLs with Chemo's Ultimate_SEO_URLs contribution.

I checked whole thing again, installed on another server and the problem is still there. I have done everything from the instructions.

Robert, can I drop you link where you can see this issue? I am sure when you see this live you will know what is wrong right away. I enabled debug too.

In the meantime I did some troubleshooting and at one another addon web page of this type I found solution for my issue. Inside includes/header.php file there is code :

 

print("<script type='text/javascript'>window.location='index.php';</script>");

 

This should be removed . So now it seems this is finally working fine. As I have some specific characters for my language (Croatian) I see that some of the links which contain such characters, are not working. Hope there is solutions to that.

Yes, basically nothing you have said is related to USU5.

 

That javascript is usually the result of a crap Template Monster template.
