The Ecommerce Templates shopping cart software Version 7.2.1 released 30th March 2020 introduced a method to enter Articles into the shopping cart software, together with appropriate Rich Snippets for search engine optimization.

Here is a guide explaining how to configure Ecommerce Templates for Articles >>

There is a sample includes.php file to download free containing all relevant entries. This is for the PHP version. Somebody else can possibly translate that for ASP users ?

A big thank you to Vince for his brilliant work in seamlessly integrating this fantastic feature into Ecommerce Templates.

Ecommerce Templates is now much more than just a shopping cart for the sale of "Products". You can use the software to construct any type of website. It is clearly the superior option, far less cumbersome than WordPress and optimised for quicker page load speed.

When we entered an article Author Name in the SKU field, the Google Rich Results Test Tool would whinge about:
  • author
  • Missing field 'url' (optional)
Yes, a very minor issue. Nevertheless, I can now offer all Ecommerce Templates users a solution.

It involves modifying the special parameter named $publisher in your includes.php configuration file to define both the article Publisher and Author identity. The Author can be either an Organization or a Person.

Once that includes.php modification is uploaded, entering an article Author Name in the SKU field is no longer required. Leave that field blank.

However, you should then go back through all existing Articles and delete the Author Name from the SKU field. Then when you run any Article page through the Google Rich Results Test Tool, you will get a perfectly clean result.
