Auto Meta Tag Generator - Now What?

I bought an extension called auto meta tag generator assuming it would do what its name implies. The setup has the same meta tag fields as the product forms do. Apparently I have to tell the module what to do by putting something in those fields. I get no response from the author. I have no idea wha...

Re: Manage number of products shown on subcategory page

It sure does help. Thanks very much. For those who want to customize this the array referred to above is at line 311 of the PHP file.

Manage number of products shown on subcategory page

The customer can choose how many products are shown on the category page. It defaults to 15 products and allows the customer to select 25, 50 or 100. I could do without the 15 and 25 but would be happy if it could just default to 50 products. I have several categories that exceed 100 but 50 covers e...

Disaster, can't add products to new categories

I had some self generated problems and ended up having to restore an older version of the database. I can add a category but none of the products show. The category names are there, the products are there, the images are there, everything is enabled but none of the products for these categories show...

Re: A better way to print orders

Yes, the invoice is one page but it doesn't include the customer email address making it useless for me. Printing the order results in 4 pages of stuff. I need the information contained in the email order notification.

A better way to print orders

I need a better way to print orders. Printing the orders puts out 4 pages, most of which is immaterial. The invoice doesn't have the customer email address. I don't need an invoice. The accounting system handles that. The confirmation emails actually provide everything I need but I don't want to rel...

Re: Excruciatingly slow

Actually it turned out that is one of the factors. I'm amazed it is such a drag on performance. The gurus also found a less than optimal PHP configuration my server. It seems to be running pretty well now or at least much faster than before. The site is http://www.knifeoutlet.com if you can find any...

Excruciatingly slow

My opencart 2.3 website is running really really slowly. So slowly that sometimes links time out. Having spent two months filling it with products I'd like to fix it rather than abandon it. I'm running on a microsoft server. The place where my web server is located thinks the problem is not with the...

Re: SEO

I agree with that. First I need to deal with a site speed problem. I may need to move it again to a Linux server.

Desktop format on a cell phone

It appears Opencart provides cell phone formatting whenever it senses a cell phone browser. I had a request for a way for a customer to use the desktop format on his cell phone. Is it possible?

Re: SEO

OK. I'm not sure I'm up for dealing with linking over 5000 products but I will look into it. The poster above may have a point that the search engines need to have some time to clean things up. They need to delete the dead links and create some new ones. Perhaps things will clean up a little by them...

Order confirmation message

Upon order completion my opencart 2.3 sends an email to the customer that indicates that the order will be complete when payment is processed. It shouldn't go out until the order is complete and paid and shouldn't leave anything hanging. It should just thank the customer and provide the order inform...

Re: SEO

Thanks. Yes the old site (more than a decade old) had over 250,000 orders but all were deleted after being filled for security reasons. Using SEO URLs doesn't work. The problem could be that I am on a Microsoft server. Would it pay me to move to a Linux server?

Re: SEO

2.3. I filled in the SEO URL fields in the form for each products but I don't know how a search engine would get to them. My descriptions are designed to be accurate with no thought to SEO. I don't know what a 301 redirect is so I'm sure I didn't do that. There is nothing in the old site that isn't ...

SEO

Recently I moved from my old web site to my new opencart site. My desire was to have cell phone formatting and more modern SEO. The cell phone formatting worked out well. SEO not so much. My sales have tanked. Is there something I need to do get back in business? What have I missed?

How do I remove an enabled category from the site map?

I have a category that I want to be accessible only from a direct url. I don't want its existence to appear anywhere on the site. The only problem I have is that it shows up in the site map. I need to remove it from the site map without disabling it. Does anybody know how to do it?

Subcategory display

You can see the nearly complete site in question at http://192.96.215.234 If you access the far left category (knives A-E) all the sub categories show in two columns. The other categories keep one column that disappears at the bottom of the page with only some of the subcategories visible. The secon...
