[osCommerce] Category links not SEO but rewrite ok

Postby shotputty » Thu Nov 18, 2010 8:24 am

When I hover above a category link it says:

mydomain.com/index.php?cPath=28

when I click it, it says this in the address bar:

mydomain.com/vitams-minerals-28/

Very nice as it should be by MSU.
I thought the links would be altered also, is this not the case?

you can hover above the categories. Please note that some of the categories (3rd, 6th & 8th) and products have actual existing deep structured pages. This is from before I ever heard of MSU. The ones that don't give pretty url's are unaltered. Direct product links give nice links, but not if accesed from underneath a category. (but they do resolve in a nice URL)

The reason why some URLs are not transformed in HTML source code is because there are missing quotes in href parameter.

Excellent, that was it! Thanks very much!

categories string was like: <a href=' ; and should have been: <a href="' ;
Now all links are SEO. 8-)
