I've installed 22d_10 (5 Jul 2010) verion of SEO URL's ... after installation on first time page show is error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method SEO_URL::generate_newsdesk_categories_cache() in /home/ledsigns/public_html/includes/classes/seo.class.php on line 673.

 

The contribution looks it works, but in panel i can't set nothing on SEO URL's page. In includes/seo.class.php i don't find declaration of generete_newdesk_categories_cache().

===================================================

Then you've made a mistake in the installation somehow since that function is definately in the file.

 

But where? In line 673 is:

if ( $this->attributes['USE_SEO_CACHE_NEWSDESK_CATEGORIES'] == 'true' && defined('TABLE_NEWSDESK')) $this->generate_newsdesk_categories_cache();

and that's all.

 

In 2299 is:

function generate_newsdesk_categories_name_cache(). It shouldn't be function generate_newsdesk_categories_cache() ??

But this don't fix my problem. In panel I still see only title "seo ...".

 

How looks entries about this contribution in database (in configuration_group table)?

 

Sorry for post under post.

Try changing

function generate_newsdesk_categories_name_cache(){

to

function generate_newsdesk_categories_cache(){

Jack, I just installed your contribution to my website, using this test template:

http://www.netzeye.com/catalog2/

 

If I hover over the links on the left, they ARE Search engine friendly. However, when i click on ANY link (with exception of the cart), it *seems* to take me to the product or category page but IMMEDIATELY redirects to index.php...

 

I've been double checking my install with your instructions (at least 4 times). I have tried to install your contribution to sterile 2.2a before and it works great! But this time I want to install it on top of this theme...

 

Does anyone know what may be the cause of the instant re-directs?

function generate_newsdesk_categories_name_cache(){

to

function generate_newsdesk_categories_cache(){

 

It works. There is no error now, but in panel I still don't see SEO Settings. Can someone show entries in database related whit this contribution? I think problem is there.

It is probably due to the template you are using. It is a common problem with certain templates lately. The code to look for was mentioned here not to long ago. You'll need to find that code and remove or change it.

I don't think it will work if the database changes are not being installed so you are probably missing them. Look in admin->Configuration. There should be a link named SEO URLs in the left column.

I want to install this must have contribution. But also have the "product listing enhancement" installed (http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/6051)

These two are conflicting with each other. Can't add products to the cart anymore from the listing. Or when in the product_info, I can, but when go to another product, the cart is empty again.

 

Does someone has experience with both contribution and can help me out?

Sorry to pester you regarding this contribution too. I have the same problem and it must be because I'm using a template. Having glanced through the last 5 pages of this thread I couldn't find the piece of code you are mentioning. Could you possibly point us in the right direction?

No, I don't know which page it is on. It was within the last month, I think, but since this is a busy thread that might mean a large number of pages. You'll just have to go through them.

Template Monster customers, see this post.

 

Jack, another issue has come up for me. The contribution can't handle foreign alphabets. There would be no SEO value in converting all the characters, therefore I'm wondering if it's possible to force the same English URLs when switching to non-Latin languages.

The non-latin problem is a web problem. Up until recently, non-latin characters could not be viewed. They have recently changed that but I doubt it becomes standard for some time yet. In the meantime, the search engines can handle non-rewritten links so whether to force them to English or leave them as standard for non-Latin languages is mostly a personal preference, I think.

Absolutely but for me links in the non-Latin language version contain extra hyphens in both category (one) and product (a few) links. Is it normal?

Jack, I've tried switching Output W3C valid URLs off but the non-Latin characters (UTF-8) still come up as:

 

domain.com/--c-8.html

domain.com/-----------p-376.html

 

Can you help me get rid of extra hyphens or force English links? I've searched the thread for ages but haven't found a solution.

No, sorry, but that's not something I can assist with in a support thread.

Jack,

 

Circling back to this... would you say there would be a distinct "advantage" for installing Ultimate SEO on an already live site?

Yes, I think there is. It is not as great as it once was because the search engines have made changes in how they handle the links. But rewritten url's do make a difference in the oversll SEO of the site and any little bit will help when you are trying to reach a top ten position. There is also the obvious advantage of allowing your visitors to see what a page is about at a glance. Many people bookmark a page and then don't look at the bookmark for a while. If they see something that doesn't make sense, they may not re-visit it as quickly as they would if it was something that piques their interest.

please help, the shop is working and I need to fix a bug quickly

 

I'm using 2.2-10 version of SEO.

When I try to see a product which is in a subcategory I get message:

 

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

Found a solution:

"Add category parent to begining of URLs" must be set to "true"

Okay. I'll be installing this for one of our existing sites. By the way, is it okay to reference our sites and post their URLs on this forum? Sometimes it seems it would be helpful to reference it but I didn't want to leave the wrong impression.

I just found this post which goes against installing Ultimate SEO URLs for existing sites (post #11 - http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=136032). Prior to installing Ultimate SEO URLs, is there a recommended process to eliminate the duplicate content issue?
