Custom Rewrite Rules for osCommerce

Postby e-electr » Sun Mar 16, 2008 12:49 pm

Hi
I have a working site with MSU 1.1, (www.e-electronica.es) but I have created new php files. How can I build rewrite rules for this new pages and having the language delimiter working.
Now: www.e-electronica.es/warranty.php
Needed: www.e-electronica.es/en/warranty.html

I also plan to further extend my web and add way more new pages. So please give a general solution for any situation ( If posible)

Thank you,
Bye bye

P.S. Nice work with this MSU, realy nice ;)

You need something like this:

Code: Select all

RewriteRule ^([a-z]{2})/warranty.html$ warranty.php?language=$1 [L,QSA]

Make sure .htaccess file is readonly. Otherwise your changes will be lost.

Ok, let's say that your solution is partialy good for waht I need/whant
I will explain myself...

In my page I have a "Information" secction.....
» Who we are?
» Where we are?
» Privacy Policy
» General conditions
» Payment modalities
» Shipping and returns
» Warranty
» Contact Us

For example Warranty will link to: http://www.e-electronica.es/warranty.php
But I whant a automatic redirect to a http://www.e-electronica.es/es/warranty.html

Your solution will make available my warranty.php trough http://www.e-electronica.es/es/warranty.html. But in my page I still have a link to http://www.e-electronica.es/warranty.php
I hope you can understand my need now.
Tnkx

You will understand better my need if you search for a way to automaticaly redirect: https://www.e-electronica.es/password_forgotten.php and to maintain my language structure ie: https://www.e-electronica.es/es/password_forgotten.php
I can not modify catalog/includes/boxes/Login.php for all my 5 languages. no?

Why this link is not automaticaly rewriten?
It's standard osCommerce... Well I need this rewriten plz :)

I think that what I need is for you to modify the code of MSU to adapt to my needs, becose there is no other way to do What I need.
How much for 1link added to your MSU?

Ok this is clear to me, but can you give me a correct 301 redirect rule when using multilanguage mode? It does not seem to work for me....

In other words: how can I use

Code: Select all

RewriteRule ^about.php$ about.html [R=301,L,QSA]

in multilanguage?

please read my solution for your problem below:


I made a MOD which I will post here. It works for custom pages, you only need to change the tep_href_link function in your includes/html_output.php file, and add 1 line of code per new page in your .htaccess file.

First backup!!
Then replace from
// The HTML href link wrapper function
until
return $link ; }

with this code:

Code: Select all

  ////
// The HTML href link wrapper function
  function tep_href_link($page = '', $parameters = '', $connection = 'NONSSL', $add_session_id = true, $search_engine_safe = true) {
    global $request_type, $session_started, $SID, $unCurrentLang  ;

    if (!tep_not_null($page)) {
      die('</td></tr></table></td></tr></table><br><br><font color="#ff0000"><b>Error!</b></font><br><br><b>Unable to determine the page link!<br><br>');
    }

    if ($connection == 'NONSSL') {
     $link = HTTP_SERVER . DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG ;
     
     
    } elseif ($connection == 'SSL') {
      if (ENABLE_SSL == true) {
        $link = HTTPS_SERVER . DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG;
      } else {
        $link = HTTP_SERVER . DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG;
      }
    } else {
      die('</td></tr></table></td></tr></table><br><br><font color="#ff0000"><b>Error!</b></font><br><br><b>Unable to determine connection method on a link!<br><br>Known methods: NONSSL SSL</b><br><br>');
    }


//Modification for Magic Seo Url custom pages addition for OScommerce

//for each additional page add a line with a subsequent number like: $customepages_non_seo[following number] = "your_new__non_seo_name_page.php" ;

//place 1 rule per new page in .htaccess like this:

    break;

   break;



 default:
 //original code
 
  $link .= $page ;
  $separator = '?';
//end original code
}}
//end of modification for Magic Se0 Url









    while ( (substr($link, -1) == '&') || (substr($link, -1) == '?') ) $link = substr($link, 0, -1);

// Add the session ID when moving from different HTTP and HTTPS servers, or when SID is defined
    if ( ($add_session_id == true) && ($session_started == true) && (SESSION_FORCE_COOKIE_USE == 'False') ) {
      if (tep_not_null($SID)) {
        $_sid = $SID;

      $separator = '?';
    }

    if (isset($_sid)) {
      $link .= $separator . tep_output_string($_sid);
    }

    return $link ;
  }


add each new page in includes/filenames.php like any other page (example): define('FILENAME_SOME_PRODUCTS', 'some_products.php');
add catalog/your_new_file.php and includes/languages/your_new_file.php (this is basic OScommerce knowledge for adding pages)

place 1 rule per new page in .htaccess like this:
RewriteRule ^([a-z]{2})/all-products$ all_products.php?language=$1 [L,QSA]
change accordingly to your own names for each line you add

IMPORTANT, this code (above) contains two example filenames, you need to adjust them or add new ones according to your own pagenames!!

IMPORTANT 2: this code is setup for multilanguage, it will add the /en or /fr or /de between your url and your filename.
