  1. Hi DB This is my robots.txt now User-agent: * Allow: /*page=all Disallow: /?page= is this correct now thanks Again Dirty Butter
  2. Thank you both for your replies, DB do i need to enter one for each product or will Disallow: /?page= work ok? Great tool http://www.ragepank.com/redirect-check/ thank you Keat
  3. will search engines google bing etc etc see https://example.com & https://example.com/index.php? as separate pages? or would this be seen / classed as duplicate page? also https://example.com/shop/product.html & https://example.com/shop/product.html?page=2 & .html?page=3 etc classed as the duplicate / same or separate ? thanks
  4. Could someone please post a good .htaccess redirect for cubecart forcing www. removing .html extensions and what ever else i need regarding .index.php etc Please? i am confused, some sites I've read say don't use more that 1 redirect, i am baffled to what string i would use to combine what i require. i would have thought this must have been covered before on here but cant seem to find it with a search ? thanks
  5. i assume the below is what i am after? but how does this work with the index.php ? i assume the ssl is still ok to be handled by cubecart? if now force it to www, if i understand this correctly it would this still have 2 https://www.example.com & https://www.example.com.index.php how do i correct that? thanks for your help Force www: RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example.com [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.example.com/$1 [L,R=301,NC]
  6. may i ask is this correct ? i don't see any 301 re-directs ### Apache directory listing rules ### DirectoryIndex index.php index.htm index.html IndexIgnore * full .htaccess attached .htaccess
  7. Thank you for your in depth reply, i will correct the merge choice and set up separately over the coming days now i know what to do with that, i only went with that choice because it was recommended in the drop down menu in Cube cart to start with, i did my best with it as it was. regarding Point 4, how is this corrected? i have added eg. http://domain.com, https://domain.com, http://www.domain.com, & https://www.domain.com to google webmasters, is not the correct thing to do? i was unable to decide if this is correct or not. I've not added the index.php on the end of any of the 4 domain ways in google webmasters some guidance would be appreciated with this as its always confused me. Also a question regarding ssl, should the sitemap contain the ssl links or is this ok just http? Quote* You say that when searching for products you have better rankings than the homepage - that totally depends on what search terms you are using (hence the vital importance of point 2 !!) and if you are searching for a product then finding the product page is exactly what you want ! i agree if a customer searches for a brand name / make and model it shows on page 1 or 2 of google that's great but if people are first doing a general search for companies that sell an item that is manufactured or sold buy by lots of different sites this is where i feel i am missing out. eg if someone searched petrol chainsaw i wouldn't show up but if they put Stihl MS181 it would be on page 1 or 2 of google that's just as example not to be taken literally. i understand point 2 and i feel i must know these words to a degree, i am no expert obviously lol but as my none ssl html website (not cubecart site) is ranked very well in google i feel i am sorta just missing something with my ssl cubecart site. it maybe the merge setting, it maybe point 4 it maybe a combination of both i am unsure and until i correct these i guess i wont know. Quote* Did you add a 301 redirect when removing the .html file - unfortunately a massive mistake if you didnt and unless it was done in the last few weeks, then it is probably too late for that. A lot depends on what content was on that page in comparison the the store homepage now and what searches you are doing (back to point 2 yet again but this is the most important aspect which most people dont even look at !). i moved host back in November last year and decided to go with no landing page and swallowed the fact all the links from Google will no longer work, my previous host had the ssl port on 8844 so all links were going to be wrong anyway, all google searches now show the correct links all links with ports on the end now seem to have gone from all google searches and all show correctly now. i really appreciate your help with this Ian thank you once again
  8. Thanks for your reply i appreciate its almost impossible to say, i think the merge maybe why i am struggling this.. i have no errors on google webmasters, i only tend to do sitemaps when i change content so i will start doing more often once a week. regarding.. 4) Ensure you dont have duplicate content - most commonly found on the homepage where most stores have at least four different urls displaying the same content. what do you mean by this Ian? this is very interesting this may be why i am struggling? yes we have ssl and your microdata plugin, but as i said in op the products always at the front of google when searching, its really the website not showing up relating to the products if that makes sense, all this seems to be since removing the html landing page and now just having the store as index.
  9. Hi, For a while now i have been struggling with the main store/homepage with SEO. by this i mean i don't appear within the first 10 pages of a search on google, but my products appear on page 1 if they are searched by name etc. it's very odd, i have tried most things for about 5 months now but since i dropped my html index landing page so now i just have the store home / index page my SEO is no where to be found. i am aware its such a vast question, but i can get my other html website on page 1/2 all the time so i think i know what i am doing (to a degree) with keywords etc but i can not figure why i am struggling with my store index to get anywhere. the head title is made up of the two settings from documents and store settings search engine tag's and show correctly 60 characters total, and setting is merge with global meta recommended. so i suppose i am asking is Merge with global meta data the best option? thanks for any input
  10. Thought this must have been asked before but searched and don't see it.. What is the ideal Product picture size (in pixels) for foundation skin? thanks
  11. Thanks Brian as always mate your a STAR
  12. Hi Question, what is the standard Font and colour in the foundation skin please? need to make a .jpg within Photoshop and would like it to match the rest of the page i think the std font is Arial & the colour black, but in Photoshop seems a lot brighter black when the picture is added to cubecart just wondered if anyone has matched the colour if that makes sense ? thanks
  13. Also be aware it can take sometime for google to pick up the new links you may wish to fetch as google in google webmaster tools to try and force the new url's.
  14. As always Brian thank you for your time spent helping working as described your an absolute gentleman Thank you.
  15. Thanks Al thought i must nave missed something. regards
  16. i only seem to get 3 tabs across the top with cubecart security 1.0.7 on cc 6.1.1 is this correct? - general, trusted zones and disabled zones how do i set my fixed ip as a trusted ip? it's not like the pictures provided has it changed ? Also trusted zones, is this zone setting for logins? so if i set to uk for example only a uk ip could login? thanks
  17. <ul class="bxslider"> <li><img src="/test/images/source/test_slider/test2.jpg" /></li> <li><img src="/test/images/source/test_slider/test3.gif" /></li> <li><img src="/test/images/source/test_slider/test4.jpg" /></li> <li><img src="/test/images/source/test_slider/test5.jpg" title="Promotional Message Two" /></li> </ul> <script> $('.bxslider').bxSlider({pause:7000}); </script> <p>&nbsp;</p>
  18. Arr yes i wished i had searched ,more and found that before trying all the speed settings etc in the js file yesterday lol, yes i discovered this setting and this seems to work fine although Brian is cubecart god... and if he says his script will work his amendment always do, its normally me that's implemented them incorrectly i can always go back to editing the js file but rather edit the product html if possible save changing js on future cc upgrades
  19. This does not seem to work Brian, I've entered it in to a product description using source mode and saved. I've also popped the js back to the original un-edited file but it seems to be changing 3-4 seconds again after reopening the store front refreshing the product page.
  20. i think I've found it DB, i changed the pause time here:- autoControlsSelector:null,auto:!1,pause:4e3 from 4e3 to a value 7000 and that seems to be working, hopefully if incorrect someone will tell me. this is just on my test store currently but i will be moving it across to my working store tomorrow now i have it all working as i wanted. thanks for your reply
  21. Can i alter the timer speed for next jpg? looked in the java and css tried changing a few settings that refer to speed etc but none seem to change it thanks
  22. i was just popping back to say i had it working now in products, thanks mate, yes it was the test images causing the problem i figured it out before i read you post thanks again mate for your fast reply. .
  23. On a new cube cart installation there were 3 sliding pictures from memory, pretty sure this was the source code i copied out in case i ever required it again. <ul class="bxslider"> <li><img src="skins/foundation/images/examples/slide1.jpg" title="Promotional Message One" /></li> <li><img src="skins/foundation/images/examples/slide2.jpg" /></li> <li><img src="skins/foundation/images/examples/slide3.jpg" title="Promotional Message Two" /></li> </ul> i would like to use this in 2 places if possible? i would like to add it to the top of categories section, as i use sub categories and at the top of a few of my products but it does not seem to work correctly other than the front page. i assume its got some sort of java and css for it somewhere any pointers on how to get this working in these 2 locations please ? Foundation skin ok I've found the jquery.bxslider.css but not sure why it will not work on products items ? thanks
  24. thanks for your replies yes indeed dirty butter it was set in there with :8446 hopefully this will fix my issue. @bsmither yes we edited this line some time ago if (isset($_SERVER['HTTPS']) && strtolower($_SERVER['HTTPS'])!== 'off' && ($_SERVER['HTTPS'] == 'on' || $_SERVER['HTTPS'] == true) || $_SERVER['SERVER_PORT'] == 443) to 8446 but when i upgraded to 6.1.1 this got over written. hopefully the edit on the Default Email setting will resolve this, i looked everywhere lol ( but not in there ) thank you
  25. Hi Order Confirmation email, the link at the bottom of the page Visit the store, where does this pick it up the domain/url? i have spent about 4 hours looking before asking . my old host i had to be on port :8446 for ssl but now i don't with new host, except the store is still showing the domain:8446 in the email link the store settings / ssl are correct without the port, I've cleaned the cache many times, looked at the email templates etc looked at ini.inc.php line that's correct ## Detect if SSL is enabled if (isset($_SERVER['HTTPS']) && strtolower($_SERVER['HTTPS'])!== 'off' && ($_SERVER['HTTPS'] == 'on' || $_SERVER['HTTPS'] == true) || $_SERVER['SERVER_PORT'] == 443) { define('CC_SSL', true); } else { define('CC_SSL', false); } all to no avail. thanks
