SEO friendly URL Issue


Micro_PHP

Recommended Posts

Dears
I have installed the SEL Friendly URL but i have a problem
I lost meta title, meta description and meta keywords of sub-categories when I open a sub-category page. Rather in this sub-category page metas of main parent category appears in this subcategory page. But i get the positive change which is the name of the category at the end of the sub-category URL www.mydomain.co.uk/celestron-monoculars-c-1214_1416.html

when i make the 'Enable use Header Tags SEO as name?'  as True, then i lose the name of the category in my URL  My URL turns like this www.mydomain.co.uk/-c-775.html
But i get the meta title, meta description and meta keywords in  sub-categories from the sub-category page itself which is a positive point.

I cannt CAN NOT get both the name of the subcategories at the end of URL as well as the metas from the sub-category page
I have to lose one
Can some1 helps me

 

Kind regards

 

This will cause the title set in Header Tags SEO to be used instead of the categories or products name.

'Enable use Header Tags SEO as name?

The above only works if you have Header Tags SEO installed. Other than that one setting, Ultimate SEO doesn't have anything to do with meta tags. Try turning Ultimate SEO off in admin and see if your meta tags appear. If not, you have some other problem. If they do, turn it back on and turn off that setting to see if that helps.

I'm not sure I understand the problem but it sounds like you are not setting up Header Tags SEO correctly. This post may help.

Are you saying you have the use Header Tags setting enabled in Ultimate SEO and that you have an entry in the Header Tags URl box for the product and the url title doesn't change to that text?

You're telling Ultimate SEO to use an alternate setting so you have to make sure that setting is filled in. To do that, go to the product edit page and scroll down to the section with the title of "Header Tags SEO Meta Tag Data" and you will see the "Title Tag - URL" box.

Perhaps if the administrator has not filled in the Title Tag - URL, Ultimate SEO should ignore the order to use the "alternate setting"? Either that, or force the administrator to fill in that field. It sounds like the code is not robust enough.
