[ZenCart] MSEO not rewriting all URLs

Postby MarkHooper » Wed Aug 19, 2009 8:20 am

Hi

I have just installed Magic SEO onto a new install of zen cart on a site in development http://www.originaldoof.com.

Previous to that I created a new page “About Us” which I thought was working fine, however though working for the rest of the site Magic SEO is not converting this URL. Any ideas, if you need any more info please do ask.

Also the url's are not showing category when viewing the product i.e. instead of /category/product/ I get just /product/ is there a way to turn this on?

Many thanks
Mark

I checked your web site, but I don't see any problems at this time.

Hi J

Perhaps I did not explain myself clearly, I'll have another go.

My Main concern is the URL rewriting for non-product pages which have been added to the website. e.g. the About Us page

Where the Contact Us page is being rewritten as expected as below:
http://www.originaldoof.com/contact-us.html

the added page for About Us is not being rewritten i.e.
I am getting
http://www.originaldoof.com/index.php?main_page=about_us
rather than
http://www.originaldoof.com/about-us.html

My other question was whether the category name could be inserted into the URL when displaying a product, i.e.

http://www.originaldoof.com/doof-t-shirts/hand-of-doof-t-shirt-5.html
instead of
http://www.originaldoof.com/hand-of-doof-t-shirt-5.html

I hope that helps and I look forward to your response,

many thanks.

Mark

Such added pages can be rewritten only by adding Rewriting Rule into the .htaccess file and replacing the link in HTML source code.

You can do it by changing the settings in includes/msu_tweak.ini file (uri_mode).

Hi J

Thanks for the quick reply,
Such added pages can be rewritten only by adding Rewriting Rule into the .htaccess file and replacing the link in HTML source code.

I understand the .htaccess but can you be explicit re HTML? Just a paste of an example probably would suffice.

Many thanks again

Regards

Right I had a play. You meant just a hard coded URL link right, seems to have worked for me

Many thanks
