/var/cache/misc/assets...nofollow, Noindex?

21 January 2019 - 11:13 AM

I am constantly seeing google trying to access these links directly which generally results in a 404 because the file no longer exists because the cache has been cleared.  Shouldn't these pages have a nofollow and/or noindex appended to the links?


I have no idea if it is hurting SEO but it seems google is trying to access the links just as much as any other.


Unnecessary Requests To Google Maps Api

04 November 2018 - 07:48 PM

I am not sure when this started (Just upgraded from 4.8.1 to 4.9.1) but I have been noticing (via logs) a lot of unnecessary requests to Google Maps API and was wondering if anyone else has been noticing this as well or if it is just isolated to my install.  Since Google is charging for the service, I need to figure out what is going on with all of the unnecessary calls.


So far I have noticed the requests during the following actions:


Cron job for Google Sitemap - 2 requests apparently using admin credentials

Cron job for a product update addon - 2 requests apparently using admin credentials

Adding products to cart - 3 requests

Cart page - 1 request

Empty cart - 1 request

Php Warning: Strpos():

08 April 2018 - 11:28 AM

I posted this issue in bug tracker but it's not getting much attention and nobody else seems to have the issue so I thought I would pick some brains in the forum. 

[07-Apr-2018 14:41:40 America/Chicago] PHP Warning:  strpos(): Offset not contained in string in /home/user/public_html/app/functions/fn.common.php on line 2145

I have been getting these warning for some time now and I have been able to trace it down to only certain product pages but I cannot figure out exactly what is causing it.  Can anyone tell me what this function truncates?

function fn_truncate_chars($text, $limit, $ellipsis = '...')
    if (strlen($text) > $limit) {
        $pos_end = strpos(str_replace(array("\r\n", "\r", "\n", "\t"), ' ', $text), ' ', $limit);

        if($pos_end !== false)
            $text = trim(substr($text, 0, $pos_end)) . $ellipsis;

    return $text;

Search Abuse /?subcats=...

21 March 2018 - 04:49 PM


I had this issue before but this time I do not have a distinct pattern to go off of to block the intrusion.  I am being blasted with multiple searches from multiple IP's which is bring my server to its knees.  All morning I have been blocking entire ranges of IP's running searches and I just cannot contain them with the over 200 entries I already have.
Does anyone have any ideas?

Ups Shipping Rates Response

Is anyone else having issues pulling UPS rates?  For some reason I am not getting a reponse to the requests and therefore no shipping methods show up for the customer.
