[CubeCart] Compatibility with brands mod

Postby njgreen1984 » Thu Sep 15, 2011 5:56 am

Hi,

I have the 'Product Brands Mod' installed from kissmycart.net. I do not use all of the features available for this mod, just the ability to categorise my products by various different brands.

You can see what I mean when clicking on the manufacturers at the bottom of the page here: http://bit.ly/octBz1

How do I make this mod compatible with your SEF URL's?

Cheers :-)

We have checked your site and everything is working fine regarding this mod.

Can you please post us step-by-step guide how we can reproduce it on your site?

If you take a look down toward the bottom of the page, just above where the grey footer starts, there are 6 different manufacturers logos in black & white in white boxes (with rounded corners if you have css3 enabled). When you hover over them they are in colour. Click on any of these and you will be taken to the products on offer made by these manufacturers.

The URL's are displayed along the lines of 'index.php?_a=viewBrand&brandId=3'.

How can I customise these?

Thanks :-)

Such links can be transformed to SEO formats only by manually editing your PHP files and adding appropriate Rewrite Rules to you new .htaccess file (you can get inspired by existing Rewrite Rules in this file).

Thats fair enough, since I'll agree the mod I have that creates these URL's is not really part of cubecart - so some manual ammendments will be necessary. However, the PHP file that I would ideally be editing, written by you, is scrambled by Zend - am I correct?

So could you point me in the right direction as to what would be the best approach to make these amendments?

Also, one other thing, is that this mod seems to have disabled the redirect to my 404 page. What do I need to do to fix this?

Thanks for all of your help anyway. Aside from these pretty minor issues, this mod seems to have solved a lot of problems I have been having with Google.

Good work :-)

No. I mean CubeCart PHP files.

Your HTTP 404 mod is likely no longer working because some of your old .htaccess content was not moved to newly generated file.

Nope. Added it manually afterwards tho...

Code: Select all

ErrorDocument 404 /index.php?_a=error&code=404


Am I missing something?

Please make sure your .htaccess file is protected and your customized content is not lost and post us also step-by-step guide how to reproduce this problem on your site.
