Default Re: XC SEO Lite v1.0.0 Released

I took the code home with me, made quite a few changes

* Found 1 more issue with Manufacturer htaccess rules, fixed that
* Added rewrite for catalog urls to the normal url structure
* Added TITLE tag insertion into href structures (for all rewritten urls)
* Added Static Page rewrite support

I'm going to debug jayk's issues, and then I'll issue a new release

Okay, I've uploaded a new release, v1.0.4

When using the provided .htaccess file, please be aware of the RewriteBase directive, and change as needed.
Additionally, the catalog/ directory has a .htaccess file for redirecting catalog-generated urls, edit this as well


Changelog:

Quote:
XC SEO Lite 1.0.4 (rev 15 - September 21, 2006)
====================================

* Bugfix: outputfilter.seo.php: Had used stripos instead of strpos (stripos is a PHP 5 function)

XC SEO Lite 1.0.3 (rev 14 - September 21, 2006)
====================================

* Bugfix - .htaccess: Added missing rules to htaccess file for Manufacturer sort ability

XC SEO Lite 1.0.2 (rev 10 - September 20, 2006)
====================================

* Bugfix - seo.php: Moved $seo_qs inside IF statement so it is not processed needlessly (causes errors otherwise)
* Added Install docs for 4.1.3 - Modification instructions changed for Froogle in X-Cart 4.1.3
* Added support for IS_ROBOT define in X-Cart, so that Bots are unable to see/visit Printable or Sorted urls

XC SEO Lite 1.0.0 (rev 6 - September 20, 2006)
====================================

* Replaced original XC SEO code with geckoday's rewritten code (rewrite of outputfilter & htaccess, he had dropped all other code/files)
* Altered code to replace accented characters with non-accented equivalent
* Added support for rewriting 'printable=Y' urls
* Added support for rewriting 'sort' & 'sort_direction' urls
* Added seo.php to rewrite/redirect category/product/manufacturer urls to new HTML alias

Default Re: XC SEO Lite v1.0.0 Released

I've updated the robots.txt file in SVN, the updated file will be in the next release.

Contents are below, I suggest everyone using XC SEO apply this changed robots.txt file:

Code:
User-agent: * Disallow: /cgi-bin/ Disallow: /search.php Disallow: /cart.php Disallow: /giftcert.php Disallow: /orders.php Disallow: /register.php Disallow: /icon.php Disallow: /image.php Disallow: /error_message.php Disallow: /offers.php Disallow: /product_image.php Disallow: /shop_closed.html

Thanks for the new release!
Where exactly in the .htaccess file should I change the above?

Default Re: XC SEO Lite v1.0.0 Released

In each .htaccess file, there is a line that says:
RewriteBase /

Read the comments above this line, and edit as needed.
The best way to find out if you have configured your htaccess file correctly, is to test your site and make sure it functions properly

If you installed x-cart into your site root (/), then you shouldn't need to edit anything. If you installed into a subfolder (/shop), then rewritebase needs to be edited

EDIT: Again, if your site is working fine, you don't need to mess with the .htaccess file

I've changed RewriteBase / into the subfolder where I have x-cart installed.
But the site also functions properly if I leave the RewriteBase / as it was...

Okay, as long as it works for you

Here are the docs on RewriteBase:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/mod_rewrite.html#RewriteBase

I think the base is used to prevent conflicts of /shop/my-categotry.html (dynamic url) and /my-category.html (actual html in base dir) from happening.

I'll end up putting a nice informative comment such as the following in the .htaccess file. Should take care of any questions
