Help Wanted: Configure Leo Digital Front Office

08 October 2014 - 06:48 PM

I've upgrade our shop from 1.4.6.2 to 1.6.0.9 and installed Leo Digital theme.

 

Looking for someone with Leo Digital or other Leo front office module/theme experience that can help us finish off the front office configuration and presentation.

 

I am retired 'systems main frame assembler', so I just know a nice front office when I see one.

 

Initially we just want menu built, removal/addition of components...this so we can cut over.  Then we are open to more work to help make nice front office presentation.

 

upgrade is on subdomain

leo demo with demo data is on another subdomain (for comparison)

 

Wanting to get this done ASAP! 

 

Simply personal message me for info on access upgrade/demo for more review.

 

Thanks, Fred


[TIP] Importing both US and UK English Packs

02 October 2014 - 04:45 PM

Native PrestaShop English en-us language pack uses iso code 'en'

 

this kept the United Kingdom language pack from importing.

 

I changed language iso code for en-us to 'us'. bo-->localization-->languages

 

Imported United Kingdom language pack (native sets iso code to gb)  bo-->localization-->localization

 

At this time I do not know of any repercussions from doing this.

 

You can see how this works on our Advanced Language | Currency IETF detect demo shop here:

 

http://demoietf.etiendas.co/

 

(we hope in the future native PrestaShop will allow use of language code in url, i.e. /en-us/es-ar...this will be a significant improvement.

 

here is sitemap with en for us and gb

[TIP] Significant SEO Improvement For Multi Country Shops

29 September 2014 - 05:35 PM

Multishop allows you to multiplex one content across multiple domains.  

 

rule: one(1) gTLD (.com/.net/..) and one or more(1+)  ccTLD (.fr/.de/.com.uk/.etc)  (also possible to use regional domains, i.e .asia/.eu(better for EU'er than .com

 

gTLD issues, SEO use IP of hosting as part of weight.  Compete against all other gTLD's for keywords/ranking...

 

For single country shops outside of US, we recommend ccTLD of your country..to do otherwise is very difficult.

 

Simply adding a new domain using PrestaShop MultiShop feature by Geo Targeting country/region is the most significant SEO improvement you can make.  Period.

 

Here is an example of what I mean, we are a 'very' small dev shop, when google search for 'PrestaShop JavaPro'.

 

four(4) of my shop domains appear, and this on a localized US-EN browser and with no 'special' effort.

I've set this environment up for 'many' using our 1.4 MultiShop Pro module and have helped 'many' others savvy shop mangers from 1.5 through 1.6.  

 

Now take all that hard work building that catalog and it's accompanied SEO and multiply x 2 (weighted by country/region) for each domain...

 

Happy Geo Targeting, el
