Hi,
Love your stuff! I noticed that on the products page only, using Google Chrome and then ctrl+shift+j i get the following errors,

Code: Select all

GET http://cdn.reddragonvapors.com/catalog/view/theme/default/image/stars-4.8000.png 404 (Not Found) american-red-tobacco-e-juice:15

all my stars work for the entire site and testing in Google Rich Snippets Testing Tool I get stars as well. However, it is a little un-nerving to see errors on your page. Can we fix this?

I can relate to that.
OC2PS wrote:One issue with OpenCart's default aggregate rating is that it truncates the fraction instead of rounding it off. So if your aggregate rating is 4.9 (i.e. anything less than perfect 5 but more than 4), then OpenCart shows rating as 4 and 4 stars. This is not good or fair as your customers might think that average rating is lower than it is. But it's even worse if you are using Rich Snippets because then this lower than real rating shows on Google results page.

So, an additional task that this extension performs from v 1.8 onwards is that it fixes the ratings. With this extension your shop shows stars based on rounded off average rating, and Google is provided accurate average rating, which seems more realistic to Google and will help your Rich Snippet show up more quickly in results, and not be snippet-spam flagged.
This is what messes up the stars. You see, the way OpenCart shows you the "right" numbers of stars (actually less than what you deserve, but whatever), by prefixing and suffixing the rating number..something like stars-?.png (where ? is a variable) so if the number OC sees is 4, it calls stars-4.png

When this extension corrects the ratings behavior of OpenCart, and makes it more accurate e.g. 4.8 instead of 4, ? takes the value 4.8 (actually 4.8000), Opencart tries to call stars-4.8000.png which is a file that doesn't exist. So this extension looks around in all the known places (everything that's packaged with core software) and fixes that.

However, if you have another module installed that is not shipped with the core, then this extension doesn't have any idea about it. The extension still tries to patch all stars but if your module is using a non-standard way to call the stars, then errors can happen.

In your case, the errors are likely happening because of the "Customers who bought this also bought" module. To eliminate the errors, you need to apply the patch suggested in the original post

Thank you, I completely overlooked that module.

@ OC2PS I switched themes and am having trouble modifying the mod to accept this. Would you be interested in helping with the modification, and a price to do so.

Looks like the extension is not compatible with your theme. If you'd like me to adapt it, please PM me.

Hi,

I wanna share my tweak I did for this mod.

I just upgraded to 1.5.5.1 and i didn't found out how to make my stock availability to be shown. On original mod there is $stockqty, but it shows nothing on my shop. Maybe it's because my theme?

Anyway. I didn't even find anything that could show my actual stock status. $stock will print same thing than I already have on my product-page. But there is error, because if i but to this mod that if $stock > 0, it will always go true. Cause when stock is 0, it will print "2-5 days" or "4-14 days". And apparently they will also make this if come true.

I did figure to solve this so that I will count letters on this $stock. If it's under 3 (I'm sure I wont have more than 100 products of anything) it will print InStock. And if my $stock is over 3 it will print OutOfStock.

So here is my code:

Code: Select all

<operation info="Markup currency and add stock status as In stock.">
<search position="replace" index="1" error="log"><![CDATA[<div class="price"><?php echo $text_price; ?>]]></search>

<add><![CDATA[
<div class="price"><div itemprop="offers" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Offer"><?php echo $text_price; ?><meta itemprop="priceCurrency" content="EUR" /><link itemprop="availability" href="http://schema.org/<?php if (strlen($stock) < 3) {echo "InStock";} else {echo "OutOfStock";}?>" />
]]></add>
</operation>
Hope this helps someone.

Actually just had a look at your site, and it's clear that parts of the extension are not working.
  • I see that you are running OC 1.5.4. Are you using the correct version of vqmod and of this extension?
  • Are you using Default theme?
  • Please ensure that you uploaded the entire extension properly. (try re-uploading...overwrite any files if asked)

I re-uploaded all files, overwriting 3, but still the same problem.

I am also using the right extension (for 1.5.4.1.) and I am using the default theme.

Could this module that Im also using, be the problem?

That's the problem. You can't use both.

Not sure where you are clicking uninstall. I think it is a vqmod, so you need to remove or rename the xml.

Hi,

Same problem here.
On the frontpage of the website the start show correctly.
But on the productpage, tab "RELATED PRODUCTS", sometimes stars where not shown.

I have edited the file z-google-rich-snippets-2.xml and made 2 replacements in it.

From: stars-<?php echo $product['rating']; ?>.png

To: stars-<?php echo round($product['rating']); ?>.png

In fact, it made it even worse and less stars are showing up properly... So I had to revert back.

Any suggestions? OC 1.5.5.1, vqmod 2.3.2, not other rich snippet extensions.
