SEO / Re: SEO URL
« on: June 20, 2021, 06:34:38 AM »
I am not the best in SEO but according to google "Providing search engines with dynamic URLs should be favored over hiding parameters to make them look static." take a look  https://moz.com/blog/dynamic-urls-vs-static-urls-the-best-practice-for-seo-is-still-clear

If this is true, then maybe I'll just turn my SEO Urls off instead of trying to fix the problem I'm having with them! Anyone's thoughts appreciated.

General Support / SEO URLs does not work
« on: June 20, 2021, 06:27:41 AM »
I have recently migrated to a new host, installing a fresh AbanteCart 1.3.0.1 and upgrading to PHP 8.0. I had a few issues which I have corrected, but one I can't shake is an intermittent warning that "SEO URLs does not work", and find that sometimes the URL will be expressed in the SEO format, and sometimes similar to "... index.php?rt=product/product&product_id=387".

I don't see anything in error.txt that suggests a relation to this problem. Where can I look for clues, please?

I run Apache2 version 2.4.48 and mod_rewrite appears to work correctly. I have .htaccess in place and works correctly for rewriting http to https URLs. My Apache configuration file for the site has:

     <Directory /var/www/screaminmimisperfectpickins.com/public_html/>
        Options +FollowSymlinks
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted
     </Directory>

Thank you so much, I got the packages! Would you please direct me to where I can find the upgrade howto? I did try to find it on my own.

Went to upgrade today from 1.2.13 to 1.2.14 (then I was going to 1.2.15), but got this message:

 Marketplace error: Error: Can't get length of data(file). HTTP status code : HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request

What's the best way to go from 1.2.13 to 1.2.15?

I use VPS's on Linode for many years, and absolutely love them and their service. But I felt I needed a little more hand-holding with Apache rewrite and PHP when I installed AbanteCart, so I went with InMotion. So far, so good, and their help desk has been actually helpful.

You should contact your hosting provider. Or when you log in to your hosting account (not the AbanteCart Admin), look for a File Manager app.

How-to questions / Re: URL available in HTML block?
« on: March 09, 2019, 09:14:58 AM »
Found a solution, I think. Any drawbacks to this?

<a href="#" onclick="window.open('https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u='+encodeURIComponent(location.href),'facebook-share-dialog','width=626,height=436');return false;">Share on Facebook</a>

Stumbled across this code for a Wordpress implementation. Would something similar work with AbanteCart? Are php variables accessible in this manner?

<a href="https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>" target="_blank">Share on Facebook</a>

Thank you. It looks like an easy implementation, but I'm hoping for something even simpler and without oversharing to fourth parties.

How-to questions / URL available in HTML block?
« on: March 08, 2019, 10:14:54 PM »
I'd like to make a Facebook Share link on individual product pages, so visitors can share the product pages with their friends. Seems I could make a custom HTML block to show the link. Are there field codes available in the HTML editor that I can embed the current URL? Or another trick to accomplish something like the attachment here shows.

How-to questions / Re: Side-load images from another website?

Thank you, Basara! I'm going to more towards doing imports as quickly as I can figure them out, then.

How-to questions / Side-load images from another website?
« on: February 27, 2019, 08:03:52 PM »
I have another web address with photos I would like to use for my products, rather than uploading from my own computer. In other words, I would like to import them into AbanteCart using the Resource Library. Preferably, be able to specify multiple URLs. Can I do it from the Admin web interface?

Looks fine tonight for me. If you're still having a problem, clear your browser cache.
If you don't know how, Google "how to clear browser cache". The top links shown all have good explanations.

Built-in Features / Re: Category block disappears with browser width.
« on: February 18, 2019, 10:21:11 AM »
To answer your why question, categories are collapsed into drop down for smaller screens. This is a feature for mobile devices and smaller screen resolution tablets.
I suppose, though that drop down (on my site anyway) does not show the categories. I put a category block at the bottom of the site and that's not too bad.  Thanks for your reply.
