Need to remove shop name from title in Prestashop? Ok!

Info and theory

First of all you need to know that title is really very important for SEO. Title tag should, as much as possible, correspond to page contant and have words from it’s header (h1,h2 …) tags.

So as you understand shop name in every title tag isn’t the best decision! And I want to offer you several ways to remove it.

Some words from w3schools.com:

The <title> element:

  • defines a title in the browser toolbar
  • provides a title for the page when it is added to favorites
  • displays a title for the page in search-engine result

Solution

You can simply remove shop name in title by editing meta-data of the page. But after manual editing shop name will disappear from only the one page you have edited.

To totally remove shop name you can edit classes/Tools.php file. Find completeMetaTags function and remove all includes of:

 

That’s all you need!
Now you are one step closer to google TOP! 🙂

It’s a rather common problem when you’re changing your shop php scripts. You change your code but nothing changes in frontend output.

Prestashop pagination.tpl template tune up

The problem

Many of us noticed that pagination in prestashop works a bit different then you expect it to work.

For example this is pagination for 4 pages:

Why it shows 1,2,3 and where is 4? Just click the second page and:

* them same situation with the last page.

Ok, showing 1 2 3 … 4 wont be great idea but continue showing 1 2 3 is also not the best idea.

 

Why

I don’t know the motivation of creators to do so and can fins only several reasons:

  • pagination output is assigned to the creators of the template which more likely to use the default template code;
  • the main idea was to make pagination compact?!

Nevertheless pagination works correct with large number of pages:

Lets try to solve it!
