This hack doesn't mess with the URL structure. Check ur VM admin config site URL settings.

You are not using VM 1.1.14... See my post in link above and joenist99 response and fix for 1.1.13. This was noted as well on the post where this download is available.

What should I do with the metadata_hack.sql? Should I upload it or where should i put this one. I'm seriously a new one when it comes to hacks

That .sql file is a set of SQL statements that are meant to create a new table and insert fields into the Joomla database. This hack requires some extra tables be made in the database to manage and store all the metadata. If you're familiar with phpmyadmin (the backend access to your database and all its tables), log into phpmyadmin and open up the database for your Joomla site. (I'm working on my PC using WAMP, so I would access it by typing in the URL http://localhost/phpmyadmin , if you're working locally it should be the same.)

When it's open, click on the "SQL" tab, and in the white space provided, copy and paste the contents of the .sql file (which you can open in Notepad, it's just a text file at the end of the day) and then click on the "Go" button to execute the statements and create the necessary tables.

If you're not familiar with phpmyadmin, or you use a different system, I suggest you ask for some help inserting the SQL into your database.

Oh thanks I see it. It works really good, but before I knew of this hack is changed something in the code (I read that somewhere on the internet). This helped me to put in a meta description. I you look at my meta description on 'http://www.blokkenwereld.nl/index.php/webshop/details/105/32/duplo/bouwplaten/2198---duplo-bouwplaten-3-stuks'

you can see my meta description: 

<meta name="description" content="2198 - Duplo Bouwplaten (3 stuks) bij Blokkenwereld.nl - De Duplo 2198 bouwplaten is de start voor jongere kinderen voor de bouw van hun grootste creaties. - Bouwplaten" />

 I want to get rid of the -Bouwplaten. You know where to do that? I can't remember it anymore

Could have been many places. Is this appended to ALL pages on your site? Or just one page? Or just products details pages. Be more specific.

Not really. My script does nothing of the sort from touching your JOOMLA access.

That's weird. I ran it on two different servers and it happened to both websites right after i copied over the files and put the SQL up... hmm

Nevermind, you're right. I am an idiot accidentally made a admin folder in the / rather than in the public_html. lol

Marcus, I not sure if you need help or are giving a compliment?! I didn't really understand you much.

A suggestion, try using "Google Translate" to type in your native language and convert to English; paste English in here :)
