Master Products - MS2

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to have the site search include the slave products model # and description, with a link to the master product? Any tips for doing so before I take a stab at it?

 

It's good to see support for this great contribution be continued for the latest release.

I think possible. We take a standard seach and get products_master string as results. After we have to take an array and we can list something.

First we try to finish Beta. Would be important to make with something slave popup page. There are a lot of facilities (JQuery popup or something like original JAVASRIPT)

I cant see at this moment slave url seo. All of the links go to master so maybe websearchers dont like it. Does somebody have experriencies?

I think I have slave SEO url's. But I dont understand what it supposed to be happening with the products

I have set up a test shop.

 

When the suggested accessories box is activated it causes a display problem in IE9

 

http://www dot electricalcity.co.uk/sample1/

 

I have tried Ultimate URLs (USU 5 Pro) and they work fine on the suggested accessories box, but not on the product listing page

 

edit:: the SEO urls work fine if the master an slave products are placed in a category.

This is more simple.

 

Change in advanced_search_result.php

 

// Master Products
 $where_str = " where p.products_status = '1' and p.products_master = '0' and p.products_id = pd.products_id and pd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' and p.products_id = p2c.products_id and p2c.categories_id = c.categories_id ";
//Master Products EOF

 

to:

 

// Master Products
 $where_str = " where p.products_status = '1' and p.products_id = pd.products_id and pd.language_id = '" .  (int)$languages_id . "' and p.products_id = p2c.products_id and  p2c.categories_id = c.categories_id ";
//Master Products EOF

Error Type: [E_NOTICE] Undefined index: products_set_only

in application_top

 

This is the offending part

//Master Products

if ($_GET['products_set_only']) {

 

Would I be right in saying to change it to

if (isset($_GET['products_set_only'])) {

Yes this is good idea but 'products_set_only' maybe redundant. I think would be better to use parameters in links like this: /products_info.php?products_id=xx&slave_id=yy from previous pages or suggested_accessories or anywhere.

 

tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO . '?products_id=' . $HTTP_GET_VARS['products_master'] . '&slave_id=' . $HTTP_GET_VARS['products_id'])

 

or

 

tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO . '?products_id=' . $product_info['products_master'] . '&slave_id=' . $product_info['products_id'])

 

I dont undenstand why use redirects this contrib. We can avoid every problems.

includes/modules/boxes/bm_suggested_accessories.php change

 

 

This version of suggested_accessories contains next link process. Could you test it in SEO? Does it work? Can you link to master page from slave products?

 

I hope we don't need some changed codes in ßeta pack. I rewrote all relevated tep_href_links

 

We can write reviews to slave products. Why not?

Ok. This is fine! We can do unique links! You need url seo enhance from SEO contributor.

 

We need to list on product_info page about slave product for SEO.

For example make bold letter highlight in master listing or print some info about slave product. Master product's Header tags can mix or join with slave product or something like this.

 

It looks like just solved popup page problems and google xml sitemap seo too. We have to reach original product_info page only for slave products without master listing table, so we dont need popup pages. Customers can write reviews and so on.

A template has been made available for creating addons for USU 5 pro

 

I do not know enough to create it

 

I do not too. I think USU 5 pro seo needs query enhance. Slave_id var have to replace with slave product name.

 

Here is my test http://variants231 dot oscom.hu

 

I am testing. Next step I will send you my pack.

What about Multiple Masters?

 

The previous (cymonguk 2005/09/07) multiple master for single slave pack was similar and very good idea.

What's happening when we use multiple master products for a slaves?

The contribution goes crash. I found a lot of bugs.

 

My opinion that we need Suggested Masters information at least on products info page.

 

The next release will contain return links to masters from unique slave info page. All masters will be listed with links.

In this case customers can use every products listing results with better navigation.

 

 

NEW standard values for Multiple Masters like this "_ 57 67 557 _".

 

 

If we use "like %" options in queries we have to use unique values. The old standards not good enough. If we ask for "%57%" we can find "557" too.

So we have to use some open and close tags in products_master field: "_"

 

Look at special codes in suggested accessories:

 

trim(str_replace('_', '', $row['products_master']))

 

 

Return links with special examination code:

 

$data .= '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . ((strpos(trim(str_replace('_', '', $row['products_master'])), ' ') !== false) ? ($row['products_id']) : (trim(str_replace('_', '', $row['products_master'])) . '&slave_id=' . $row['products_id']))) . '">' .  $row['products_name'] . '</a><br />';

Not simple but usefull, and Master Products has got Multiple Masters.

 

 

What about search?

 

If we use Suggested Masters, the search results will be optimal for navigation. The navigation more important than anything.

 

 

 

What about previous page?

 

In link navigation next release will use slave_id so the program can do highlight in master products listing or something for seo or printing information. I deleted the ugly redirect.

 

 

I hope this will be usefull as we can read in this forum.

I've executed the sql query and used the files from New shop. I'm now getting this error on the shop load;

 

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ':' in /home/euro/public_html/shop/includes/functions/general.php on line 909

 

viewable at www.euroshack.com/shop

 

Any ideas?

Find in catalog/includes/functions/general.php

 

  	$sort_suffix = (substr($sortby, 0, 1) == $colnum ? (substr($sortby, 1, 1) == 'a' ? '+' : '-' : '') . '</a>';

 

change to:

 

  	$sort_suffix = (substr($sortby, 0, 1) == $colnum ? (substr($sortby, 1, 1) == 'a' ? '+' : '-') : '') . '</a>';

 

Thanks for post! I will take an edit in the next release.
