Product Page autogeneration beware  en

Autor: Adrian B.
Visitado 526, Seguidores 2, Compartilhado 0  

Two little items to be aware of if using the Product Page generator:

The image on the Product Page does not get an Alt Tag generated - this is an seo weakness...

If you copy/paste a Shopping Cart item to create a new item - the SEO setting for the auto generated page URL does not auto update if you edit the cart name (General/Name:).  You have to go to the SEO tab manually and update the URL.

+++++++++++++

Incomedia: Please now enhance the cart import/export function by adding more product details, including packaging size - then add an API for Fedex and UPS so that accurate shipping costs can be added automatically to the cart.  Add Stripe payment integration. So close to making X5 top notch.....

Stripe Payments and API integration from Suppliers is also very important think.

I personally have stopped using WebsiteX5 for my online store as things like Stripe payment system, suggested search, product preview search have not been added to the platform yet.

I create websites for my clients and I switched to Shopify for my online store.

I have stopped any further addition to the x5 store until they implemented import/export of the store items, which is now available (basic). I am hoping for expanded parameters to be added.

Shopify doesnt work for us as it cannot handle the large number of box sizes we need for shipping and i dont like the % they take for the payment transaction. We have a low % negotiated with stripe due to our volume.

Our main store is cs-cart which handles the shipment variables and payment variables almost  perfectly.

The one that we are also testing at the moment is Ecwid as it has a widget mode. it is also looking very promising.

I really hope X5 will implement the robustness that has been suggested to them for a long time now - it is so good in many ways, it would not take much to be truly Pro........

But we continue to test other platforms in search of something that fits all the needs more closely.

Hello Adrian

About the new features you mentioned, I would advise opening up a different Idea topic, as to be sure that those matters are kept separated to be better highlighted

About the issues instead:

1_ I tried creating a new product and adding an Image, and the ALT title seems to be there. Did you try this with the latest version? Do you see it in the software's preview as I do?

2_ I copied and pasted the Product 1 and I see this if I go to the SEO tab of Product 11:

Did you mean this or did I do something wrong?

I remain available here

I think the code piece you have highlighted is the cart code?.... the product page sample is below, I do not see any alt for the image anywhere in the source.

(There is a correct canonical tag generated)

Next - i copy a product in the cart - rename it - the seo url does not update but the Tag Title does.

above: The Tag Title updated but the URL did not

Hello Adrian

No the screenshot I posted belongs to a Product Page inside the preview of the software. The link you posted here, if I click on it, leads me straight back to the homepage for some reason

About the second matter, this is so by design. Since the URL is very important, it won't be automatically changed if you rename a product to avoid issues with SEO.

If you want to change the URL of a product, you can do so manually if the product was already saved once.

I remain available here
