[Zen Cart] Additional tracking variables

Postby ubya308 » Wed Sep 02, 2009 3:33 am

I have installed Zen Cart and am interested in using Magic SEO URLs however the site I will be using has some custom variables, similar to zenid but 6 characters, that help me track referring domains. In the below example it is as rdo=7yhn6t

will need to point to

Having browsed some of the live sites I can see that if I add this additional attribute value pairing I get a 404 error message.

Before I buy this product is there any way I can include the rdo in the url so that the system essentially ignores it when rewriting the url?

Please note that this variable does not need to be carried through to any other page within the site and should be ignored by search engine crawlers.

Such URL: http://www.mydomain.com/category-name-1/?rdo=7yhn6t will work fine with MSU, but http://www.mydomain.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=2&rdo=7yhn6t URL will not be redirected to new SEO URL format, because such (unknown) URLs are ignored in order to avoid compatibility issues.
