    產品的目錄結構對整個商店來說是非常重要的,一套良好的目錄結構對顧客可帶來更流暢的瀏覽,對日常管理亦會更有效率。

    Ec2Biz的「網上商店系統」支援無限層級的目錄,目錄間亦可隨時移至不同位置。

    目錄的結構主要由“最上層”向下發展,每個目錄可以建立不同的副目錄,直至最終的產品儲存位置。

    雖然我們的目錄系統可以無限層級分支,但是建議最多使用三層,這將會令管理上較為簡單,亦令頁面更美觀簡潔。

    每個目錄包含的資料:
    • 目錄“中英文”名稱
      最多125個字元,請盡量簡短(必需輸入)

    • 目錄圖片
      JPG、GIF、PNG或SWF格式(按需要使用)

    • 目錄狀態
      選擇:“開啟”或“隱藏”(其中一種)

      選擇:自訂編排的文字、圖片等簡介(按需要使用)

    • 目錄排序
      選擇:顯示的先後次序(按需要使用)

    新增產品目錄:
    1. 點擊主選單的“分類目錄/產品管理”

    2. 目錄型式
      點擊狀態列的“專屬客戶目錄”或“普通目錄”按鈕

    3. 目錄排序
      點擊狀態列的“上箭頭”或“下箭頭”

    針對目錄的動作:
    • 新增分類
      新增一個最上層的目錄或副目錄

    • 編輯
      修改已經建立的目錄資料,例如更改名稱、轉換圖片

    • 刪除

    • 資訊
      顯示該目錄的資訊,包括內含的副目錄及產品數量、目錄狀態及型式、新增及修改日期、該目錄的適用位置超連結

    • 進入
      進入該目錄的內部

    注意事項:
    • 不應將產品直接置於“最上層”

    • 同一目錄的同一層級,不應同時存有“副目錄”及“產品”

    • 如將目錄狀態設為“隱藏”,商店則不會顯示該目錄及所含的產品,但管理員仍可進行編輯

  • SEO Keywords

    SEO Keywords


    Ec2Biz的「網上商店系統」具備首創的動態優化技術,能讓您的線上商店較其他同業“脫穎而出”。

    請選用一些和您的業務或產品有關的“關鍵字”,關鍵字越多則能令您的網站越受搜索引擎關注。

    搜尋引擎最佳化(Search Engine Optimization,簡稱SEO)是一種利用搜索引擎的搜索規則來提高目的網站在有關搜索引擎內的提名的方式。由於不少研究發現,搜索引擎的用戶往往只會留意搜索結果最開首的幾項條目,所以不少商業網站都希望透過各種形式來干擾搜索引擊的排序。當中尤以各種依靠廣告維生的網站為甚。

    所謂「針對搜尋引擎作最佳化的處理」, 是指為了要讓網站更容易被搜尋引擎接受。

    搜尋引擎會將網站彼此間的內容做一些相關性的資料比對。 然後再由瀏覽器將這些內容以最快速且接近最完整的方式,呈現給搜尋者。

    搜索引擎優化對於任何一家網站來說,要想在網站推廣中取得成功,搜索引擎優化都是至為關鍵的一項任務。同時,隨著搜索引擎不斷變換它們的排名演算法規則,每次演算法上的改變都會讓一些排名很好的網站在一夜之間名落孫山,而失去排名的直接後果就是失去了網站固有的可觀訪問量。所以每次搜索引擎演算法的改變都會在網站之中引起不小的騷動和焦慮。我們可以說,搜索引擎優化也成了一個愈來愈複雜的任務。

    新增SEO 關鍵字:
    1. 點擊主選單的“系統設定”

    2. 點擊左選單的“SEO 關鍵字”

    3. 輸入相關資料

    4. 完成後按“儲存”或“更新”,或按“返回”放棄並返回列表

    注意事項:
    • 每個“關鍵字請以”“,”(小逗號)分隔

    • 請勿輸入一整句的短文章

    • 無需輸入“重複”的“關鍵字”

  • If You're Going To Steal Software, Steal From Us: Microsoft Exec

    If You're Going To Steal Software, Steal From Us: Microsoft Exec


    Microsoft business group president Jeff Raikes estimates that between 20% and 25% of all software used in the United States is pirated, but said some pirates end up becoming paying customers.

    By Paul McDougall
    InformationWeek
    12, 2007 03:00

    If you're going to be a software counterfeiter, then please copy and illegally use Microsoft products.

    The above plea isn't from a posting on a hacker forum. Rather, it's how Microsoft business group president Jeff Raikes feels about software counterfeiters. "If they're going to pirate somebody, we want it to be us rather than somebody else," Raikes said.

    The remarks might seem surprising, coming from a senior executive at a software company that spends millions each year fighting software piracy and developing copyright protection technologies.

    But Raikes, speaking last week at the Morgan Stanley Technology conference in San Francisco, said a certain amount of software piracy actually helps Microsoft because it can lead to purchases by individuals who otherwise might never have been exposed to the company's products.

    "We understand that in the long run the fundamental asset is the installed base of people who are using our products," Raikes said. "What you hope to do over time is convert them to licensing the software."

    Raikes said Microsoft isn't about to abandon efforts to track down those who illegally copy and use its products. However, he said Microsoft has to balance that approach with the recognition that users of purloined software could one day become legitimate customers.

    "You want to push towards getting legal licensing, but you don't want to push so hard that you lose the asset that's most fundamental in the business," said Raikes, who estimated that between 20% and 25% of all software used in the United States is pirated.

    Raikes said Microsoft is developing so-called "pay-as-you-go" software offerings with pricing schemes similar to those used by cell phone companies for emerging markets as a way of encouraging low-income individuals to use the company's products legally.

    微軟證實Hotmail個人資料遭竊取


    根據BBC(英國廣播公司)報導,微軟公司的Windows Live Hotmail遭到網絡黑客入侵,超過萬個hotmail客戶資料遭到竊取,這些資料多數來自歐洲,微軟並證實遭竊取的密碼都是正確的。

    科技網誌neowin.net說,黑客除了盜取帳號密碼之外,又把盜取到的資料全數公布到網路上,超過上萬個hotmail帳戶的細節,2009年10月1日被貼上一個讓人分享密碼的網站pastebin.com。

    Neowin聲稱這些帳戶可能是被黑或是利用網路釣魚搜集而來。網路釣魚攻擊者利用發送釣魚郵件給受害者,受害者點選後,會被導向釣魚網頁,就會洩漏了個人的機密資訊給予攻擊者,如個人的信用卡號碼、密碼、帳號等。

    微軟目前表示,他們已經知悉此事,並正在積極了解及處理中。這件事透露出網路資訊安全的疑慮,若果個人資料遭到竊取,可能會有更多後續麻煩的事端。

  • How to enable Mod-Rewrite Module

    How to enable Mod-Rewrite Module


    This module uses a rule-based rewriting engine (based on a regular-expression parser) to rewrite requested URLs on the fly. It supports an unlimited number of rules and an unlimited number of attached rule conditions for each rule, to provide a really flexible and powerful URL manipulation mechanism. The URL manipulations can depend on various tests, of server variables, environment variables, HTTP headers, or time stamps. Even external database lookups in various formats can be used to achieve highly granular URL matching.

    In order to enable Mod_Rewrite for your site you should create a text file called .htacccess in the directory where you wish the rewrite rules to apply.

    The first line of this text file should be:
    RewriteEngine On

    After that you can place your rewrite rules. Here are some examples for Joomla's SEF option:
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (/|.htm|.php|.html|/[^.]*)$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(content/|component/) index.php

    Many applications come with ready to use rewrite rules that can be found in a file called htaccess.txt.

    Upload this file into the root of your domain(e.g. httpdocs). The changes take effect immediately.

  • GIF (Graphics Interchange Format)

    GIF (Graphics Interchange Format)


    GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is an 8-bit-per-pixel bitmap image format that was introduced by CompuServe in 1987 and has since come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web due to its wide support and portability.

    The format uses a palette of up to 256 distinct colors from the 24-bit RGB color space. It also supports animations and allows a separate palette of 256 colors for each frame. The color limitation makes the GIF format unsuitable for reproducing color photographs and other images with continuous color, but it is well-suited for more simple images such as graphics or logos with solid areas of color.

    GIF images are compressed using the LZW lossless data compression technique to reduce the file size without degrading the visual quality. This compression technique was patented in 1985. The controversy over the patent licensing agreement between the patent proprietor, Unisys, and CompuServe in 1994 led to the development of the PNG (Portable Network Graphics) standard.

    SWF is a proprietary vector graphics file format produced by the Flash software from Adobe (formerly Macromedia). Intended to be small enough for publication on the web, SWF files can contain animations or applets of varying degrees of interactivity and function. SWF is also sometimes used for creating animated display graphics and menus for DVD movies, and television commercials.

    PNG (Portable Network Graphics)


    PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is a bitmapped image format that employs lossless data compression. PNG was created to improve and replace the GIF format, as an image-file format not requiring a patent license.

    PNG is pronounced "ping" , but can be spoken "P-N-G" to avoid confusion with network tool ping. PNG is supported by the libpng reference library (platform-independent), with C functions for handling PNG images.
