[Zen Cart] Folders Not Being Converted To SEO Friendly

Postby centec2b » Thu Sep 01, 2011 1:02 am

Jiri

I have added a number of new products into my cart similar to this
Neue Schule 8022 Tranz Angled Lozenge 14mm Diameter 55mm Rings


using folders like this
NS Dressage Legal Bits


I notice they are not being converted by Magic Seo

I have tried to regenerate the htaccess file but cannot get the software to regenerate using your installation instructions

Is there a thread or guidance I can use to sort this problem please

Thank you

Jiri Good Evening

I am using the latest version of ZenCart , MySQL 5.0.92, PHP Version: 5.2.17 (Zend: 2.2.0)

I have created a series of new folders using the normal controls

The existing folder looks like this
http://www.whiterose-equestrian.co.uk/horse-3/horse-bits-50/neue-schule-173/

The new folders look like this
http://www.whiterose-equestrian.co.uk/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=3_50_173_174

I have followed the installation and update instructions supplied - namely
Upload the content of www directory from the archive to your web server. Probably you will have to do so by using FTP protocol. In MS Windows you can do so using Internet Explorer or Total Commander. In the case of Linux operating system you can do so using Midnight Commander, gFTP, Konqueror, or KBear.

Do not use ASCII/Text mode instead of Binary mode for transfer.

Open the file www/includes/application_top.php located in your ZenCart installation and after following block code (omit if you do update):

/** * load the autoloader interpreter code. */ require('includes/autoload_func.php');

insert

include(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'magic_seo_url.php');

and save changes in this file.

Setup access rights for the directory www/cache/fancy-data/ to 777 (rights for read and write by user, group and other users). This step can not be omitted!

Setup access rights for the file www/.htaccess to 666 (rights for read and write by user, group and other users).

Display at least once main page of your eshop (the content of www/.htaccess file will be generated).

Change access rights of www/.htaccess file back (probably to 444 - rights for read by user, read only for group and other users).

If you are unable to make www/.htaccess file read only for PHP scripts, create new blank file readonly-htaccess in same directory. This step can not be omitted!

The installation or update is finished.



I have tried updating several times and there is no change. I accept I am probably doing something wrong, but it is hard to decide what as the instructions are fairly simple

Any ideas welcome

Thankyou

Please check maximum category depth in includes/msu_tweak.php or includes/msu_tweak.ini file. Manual is located in docs directory in installation package.

Hi Jiri

[MSU]



; @name: Supported Category Depth

; @description: increase maximum category depth

; (the lower is this value, the better is performance).

; @var: integer

; @default: 3

; @range: 1 to 5

; @recommended: 3 (lower it as possible)

; @.htaccess: re-generation is required



category_depth = 3


On that basis I have the folder structure as follows

Home :: Horse :: Horse Bits :: Neue Schule :: NS Dressage Legal Bits


Do I then alter the category depth to 5 and the code will do the rest? Incidentally do you count the Home folder as "1"?


Thank you

Jiri

That solves the issue thank you. The re-generation now takes all these new folders into account.

One query from my last post please. Do I count folder depth including the home folder, that is home folder is 1 , so the next level of folders is 2 etc

Thank you for your guidance

You will need to re-generate the .htaccess file content.

No.
