I click om the link indicated and the only clickable link I see is

http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=65697.msg217254#msg217254

But this only returns to the page where I started.

That is not the download. You need to go to the VERY BOTTOM of the post, and look at all the available download versions. Download the latest. You just need to look harder.

Forrest, we have a bookshop and added additional column to the product table for author, ISBN plus a few more for publisher, pages, publication date etc. We modified the flypage as well. Is it possible to modify the hack so that it picks up these author and ISBN columns as additional to the global keywords?

I see the download links now and I downloaded the latest version and unzipped it but it is not accepted by the install process in Joomla.

I see that the instructions identify it as a "hack". I am interpreting this to mean that instead of using the usual virtuemart install function that one should manually replace the identified files on one's server using FTP commands. Is this correct?

Yes, this is a HACK, not a Joomla mod or component. You will need to backup existing files, and overwrite them with the ones included, as well as import the .sql script into your database (using phpMyAdmin or similar).

I know this is the autogen thread for your metadata hack. I was wondering if there is a hack that will help with the workload of creating related products? For some reason I remember a post about a hack whereby if you related product A to B, product B is automatically related back to product A. But I can't for the life of me find that thread!

Sounds cool, but no idea. Keep searching. Might try Google search as well.

This hack is for Metadata only, not SEF URLs.

[UPDATE] 04-08-2010 -> download v1.7
  • Minor fix in redundant $document calls
  • Added support to define Canonical URL Metatags for all category and products
  • Added support for Unique Abstract and Subject Meta Tags
  • Added support to overwrite default Joomla Meta Generator tag
  • Added support to for Metatags like: Classification, Author, Organization, Copyright, Country, Content-Language,  Language, Designer, Comments, No-Email-Collection
  • Files modified: all files modified.
  • If you already have this hack installed, there is an additional .sql for updating database to current version. Just use the .sql update and overwrite all files, as they have all changed.

Forrest, you are a genius!!!
Works out of the box with joomla 1.5.15 and virtuemart 1.14

This is great stuff, and it should not be free at all...
Thanks Forrest!!!
