The download link is back up and working now.

(Sorry for the double post, but...)

I just wanted to say thanks for this, it provided exactly what I wanted in terms of SEO features that other commercial plug-ins could provide half of. So really, thanks very much!

The only way I think it could be improved was if it was somehow a plugin rather than a mod (purely because it would have saved me half an hour with the Notepad++ Compare plugin, which is a life saver by the way). Otherwise perfect, thanks again!

wisey, there is no way it could be a plugin because it takes manual input for individual products

ofcourse, if you just wanted meta data it could be a plugin, but with the canonical option, you should have to choose which url you want to be the canonical, as well as the page title

I'm having a bit of trouble getting the hack to add the product name as the page title. All other aspects of the hack work v. well, and the title is fine for the browse pages. At the moment all I get in the flypage title meta tag is the category name. I've tried disabling all plugins and components that I though might be over writing the title, and I deactivated the system cache, but nothing seems to work. Has anyone else had similar problems?

I'm using Joomla V1.5.14, with Virtuemant V1.1.4. Initially I edited the existing files, but after encountering the problem I copied the original files onto the server.

Thanks for any and all help offered, and thanks for developing the hack. Its a much needed addition to virtuemart and should be included in all future releases!

Update on the problem, I found the culprit. I have a module installed called Good Relations, this is a semantic web addition for virtuemart, have a look here for anyone interested - http://code.google.com/p/goodrelations-for-joomla. I'll have a look at the module code and see if I can fix the problem there. Cheers,

hi, this hack works excellent, but have a problem with <br /> tag.
This tag doesn't split the keywords

for example

text1</br>text2</br>text3

results in keywords

text1text2, text2

i think it has something to do with preg_replace
can someone help me?

does this hack work with Joomfish ? Is there a way to reveal the meta fields in the joomfish translations?

Sorry yes, I meant extension rather than specifically plug-in. Maybe a component with it's own set of tables... not entirely sure what I was on about!

I've changed the code on mine slightly so when manual product keywords are entered the automatic ones are also appended to the end. If anyone wants the small amount of code for this, I'd be happy to post. Just saying.

My guess is the filtering of words in the hack is somehow having an issue with Russian characters.

I suggest you try an echo statement within shop.product_details.php (or shop.browse.php), starting with:

function clean_text($input_text)

and slowly move down each part of the filter from there, echoing variables until you find where the Russian words are being filtered out. I bet you can nail it down this way. Let me know your results!

Thanks for suggestion, Forrest!

Soon I'll get my hands to it, try and post results here. Great that you continue to support such a nice useful hack!
Greetings,
I am also very interested in those results, since any other language (except for english) is not processed in the product description.

Overall this is a great hack! well done forrest, not only for your work but also for the constant support. :)

This hack and the UPSv2 hack share a couple files and I was wondering if anyone has combined them?  Any help??

Nevermind, I've done it myself.  If anyone needs the modified files so that you can use this Metadata hack and the UPSv2 shipping module hack then contact me.

you can do each of the files manually. Just open the old file, and search for "hack"

then examine the new file for the correct place to paste it.

Thats all I did to change the new 1.1.7 files
