The e-commerce.

First time on oscommerce


Recommended Posts

I am on my first oscommerce site and am using a template design with no meta tags. I have generated some basic meta tags as a trial but am not certain where to place them in the code.

My site is www.thebluesbox.co.uk


<title>Rare Blues and Jazz vynil</title>

<meta name="description" content="A collection of rare blues and jazz">

<meta name="keywords" content="blues boogie woogie jump chicago blues westside southside delta country Texas Mississippi">

<meta name="author" content="rqm">


You will also note that there are some gremlins that have affected the price and the bread crumb on the index page. Any advice here would be appreciated.


Many thanks

You would install those lines on the index.php page somewhere in here:


<html <?php echo HTML_PARAMS; ?>>


<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=<?php echo CHARSET; ?>">

<title><?php echo TITLE; ?></title>

<base href="<?php echo (($request_type == 'SSL') ? HTTPS_SERVER : HTTP_SERVER) . DIR_WS_CATALOG; ?>">

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="stylesheet.css">



however you will need to edit this line to this: <meta name="keywords" content="blues, boogie, woogie, jump, chicago, blues, westside, southside, delta, country, Texas, Mississippi">


Having said allllllllllllllllll that, I would suggest you don't use meta tags in this fashion but that you install a meta tag contribution like this one:

as they will handle your tags more efficiently and conveniently.
