That the mod places my link in your English shop's footer is mentioned in the documentation on mod's description.

That's all you need to do to remove it. If it still appears on your site then either 1) It is in your server/browser cache, or 2) You are using another one of my free mods that also place the link.

Thanks for the quick response, I must of overlooked the bit in the docs as I have a fair understanding on how to use the mod, possible in my server cache, will check - saying all that very good mod many thanks

Hello,

Many thanks for the extension!!
But: I don't use the default theme, is it difficult to change the extension for a custom theme?
I did try to change the default/template to customtheme/template in the XML-files, but then I get this error in vqmod:
MOD DETAILS:
modFile : /data/sites/web/thesite.com/vqmod/xml/z-google-rich-snippets-2.xml
id : @tik Google Rich Snippets p2
version : 1.4
vqmver : 2.1.6
author : OC2PS
SEARCH NOT FOUND (ABORTING MOD): <h1><?php echo $heading_title; ?></h1>

What can I do to resolve this?

Thank you,
Tommeke9

Every theme is different. Otherwise, I would just have made a universal, theme-independent extension.

If you need me to do paid customization, please PM me.

Warning (v1.8 onwards)
====================
If you have added any custom modules that show rating stars, this extension may cause the stars to stop showing. The fix is simple - in the affected module's template file, change

Code: Select all

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

Code: Select all

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

Thanks!

Excellent work!

I was actually looking to do this myself but ended up letting it go...

You have mentioned that for version 1.8 onwards that the rating is exact (not rounded). However, I am using OC v.1.5.1.3 for which the newest version available is 1.1.

Is there any chance you could assist in helping this version to display the exact rating?

Also, have you had the time to include the stock status by any chance?

The best advice is to upgrade to a newer version of OC (and a newer version of this extension).

In the new version (1.9.2 onwards) stock status is included as well.

Easier said than done, I'm afraid.

I have a number of custom modules that are not compatible with newer versions of OpenCart so I will have to go through and rebuild many where an updated version is not available. Not to mention that the theme I am using has changed considerably for newer versions of OpenCart to be substantially scaled back for compatibility, which is a shame really.

I am sure I will eventually upgrade but this will mean updating or rebuilding at least 30 extensions/modifications and most likely a new theme.

I understand. I stuck with 1.2.9 till I finally updated to 1.5.2.1...of course it was a pain in the backside to upgrade by then...but I had so many customizations that I was afraid to use...thankfully, 1.5.x is somewhat easier as there are lots of customizations one can do via vQmod!

Anyhow, I will PM you.

After a bunch of messing around I found the culprit. I had to 'currency' to 'pricecurrency' in your mod to get it to work. Hope this helps someone out!
I'm getting the same error.....

Norman, Can you PM me a link to the site where you have applied the extension?

Thanks for sharing the link, Norman.

The good news is that your Rich Snippets are working great - just as expected.

The issue you raised that on the testing tool, there is the text
Extracted Author/Publisher for this page
Page does not contain authorship markup. Learn more.
in addition to the Google search preview and Extracted rich snippet data from the page is actually immaterial as product and review pages are not supposed to have authorship markup.

Since this text frequently alarms store owners, I have added this info to OP.

HI OC2PS,

Do you know why I would get this error when I test my page?

Warning: Page contains property "ratingvalue" which is not part of the schema.
Warning: Page contains property "reviewcount" which is not part of the schema

Thanks, Chris

Almost certainly because you are using more than one extension for Rich Snippets, and my markup is nested inside some other markup which is not schema.org's

OC2PS,
Thanks for the really quick reply.

I have to hold my hands up, this was entirely my fault I am using a third party theme and I adjusted the XML files to suit my theme, and made a small mistake, its sorted now however.

Thanks for your time.

Chris
