Postby frosch4 » Tue Apr 28, 2015 9:49 am

You can add your custom pages to the MSU Sitemaps in sitemaps/static.php file.

Thanks for the quick reply: the urls are added now to sitemaps.php.

It is also possible to make the link to these sites in my shop look like the other links?

I mean, instead of:
http://www.my-domain.com/my_custom_page.php?language=fr

this:
http://www.my-domain.com/fr/my_custom_page

One more question, probably related to the question above:

sitemaps static now has additional entries, like:

http://www.my_domin.com/es/about_us.html

What when I try to call this url I get a "not found" error.

What can I do?

To transform such URLs you will need to change the HTML source and add the Rewrite Rules to your .htaccess file. In the current version there is no automatic way how to do that.

And what is the change I need to do in the HTML source?

It depends where and what link do you want to change.
