STS Simple Template System & Header Tags


josh1r

Recommended Posts

Hi. I recently created a new OSC site and was using Dynamic Product Meta

Tags version 2.5 and everything was fine.

 

I then added a 7dana template to my site in which they use the STS template system.

 

It's my understanding that the dynamic product meta tags that i was using will no longer work (and it doesn't), but I should be able to use the Header Tags Controller.

 

My question is, do I have to do a full install of the Header tags controller, or, per the STS readme, it says: This contribution also allows you to use WebMakers.com's

Header Tag Controller contribution without having to modify every file on

the system. Just copy the Header Tag Controller's include files into place

and STS will automatically add them to all pages without having to modify

every PHP script in the /catalog/ directory.

 

Thanks!

It means exactly what it says :thumbsup:

 

Just follow the instructions and, unless your old contrib mucks it up somehow it will "just work." Poke around for the version of Header Tags with the fill_tags.php file in it if you want to autopopulate your fields.

 

Good luck!

That's half true. Those instructions were written many version of Header Tags ago. There has been a lot added that you need to install (the whole admin section for example). The good news is that it does work with STS. Just be sure you read the notes about STS in the Install_Catalog.txt file.

True true. You do have to mod the admin but on the catalog side the STS instructions are plain.

 

Sorry to lead you astray there.

We must have posted at the same time. My half-true statement was for the OP.

The code in STS for Header Tags is just for the title of the page. In the index.php file, there are other changes needed for the display of cateogies. You will need to install those changes as well as the stylesheet ones.
