kinda hoped all the bugs would be addressed first before enhancements were made, unless you fixed all those too?

This package only provides a replacement "admin/controller/generate_url_alias.php" file and a corresponding "admin/language/english/controller/generate_url_alias.php" file. All the bugs you mention are due to routing issues and not with the actual url alias generation process.

except the bug with balls-andamp-baskets was in that file to get rid of the "amp"

That issue has been addressed in the replacement "generate_url_alias.php" file.

Hey guys,

Great contrib....


I noticed that products with '+' symbols in their name were not working with this contrib, to fix I added the following lines:

Code: Select all

$value = str_replace('+', 'and', $value);
below

Code: Select all

$value = str_replace(' ', '-', $value);
and

Code: Select all

$alias = str_replace('+', 'and', $alias);
below

Code: Select all

$alias = str_replace(' ', '-', $alias);

in generate_url_alis.php

Thanks :)

Contribution Name
OpenCart 0.7x SEO Upgrade Package

"Just drop the files into your site root (all files are in correct folders) then run the dbupdate.sql, Login to your admin panel and choose to enable which ever feature(s) you like."

So as a php novice this sounds great something I can do myself!

But after trying to follow this thread I am now wondering if all the problems mentioned have been solved, meaning all I have to do is follow the instructions above?

Big thanks

Hi Qphoria

I know you said you would post here but it's been awhile, did the custom fix get done?

Thanks

It was delayed waiting for RC6. There were some url structure changes that needed to be in place before updating this. I will update later today

OK Here it is:

It was originally fixed using 0.7.9-RC2, and I've made a few updates for RC6 but I think it should work for all 0.7.9 RC versions.

Changes from the original:
- Moved SEO to its own 'seo_tools' controller (instead of the settings tab)
- Added '&amp' as one of the replace options to avoid "balls-andamp-baskets.html"
- Removed the included library/application/router.php file as the feature it creates it doesn't really pertain to SEO.
- Removed the included htaccess file as that already has been updated to be the same in 0.7.9
- Changed HOSTING_DIR to HTTP_CATALOG
- Using the updated 0.7.9 layout.tpl file
- Fixed the googleverify code in the layout.tpl file
- Included bruce's search.php fix
- Updated readme

Let me know if you have any problems:

Just a very basic question,  the upload/index.php file already exists and is quite different to the new one. I am not sure if I should upload it.

Thanks to you and David Gilbert.

You can always trust an OpenCart Dev :)

There are only 2 new google sections in the index.php file. Add those to your index file if you are unsure

Suppose I could have worked that out myself.

And this

That's actually part of 0.7.9-RC6

From the install.txt:
1) Upload all of the files within the upload directory to your server! Then in PHPMyAdmin, Run the dbupdate.sql


2) Login to your admin panel and set url Alias on under the SEO Tab of the settings panel

I have uploaded all the files, run the sql code and made the new files accessible to user  in Admin>User Group (which BTW is not mentioned in the install.txt), I suppose you know that and thought if people have come thus far they will know to do it.


I don't have a SEO Tab (Is that part of 0.7.9-RC6?) I do have the url Alias option under the Shop Tab.

Cheers
