[ZenCart] Upgrade to 2.0 - short_uri mode

Postby Kubazoo » Sun May 02, 2010 4:38 pm


Just upgraded to 2.0 version.
I noticed that when I change url settings in msu_tweak file, I got 404 errors for Google indexed pages.
So the 2.0 version does not redirects automatically to product by it's ID, after change of url settings in msu_tweak.ini?
I like this "short uri mode" as well as possibility of removing uri extension.

Or am I doing wrong something?

1.x Series is using uri_mode = "normal" and it is hard-coded. If you set uri_mode to "short" in new 2.x Series all your old URIs will be redirected automatically.

If you change uri_extension to something else than ".html" and you want to redirect your old URIs, you need to place your old Rewrite Rules (or Rewrite Rules generated with uri_extension set to ".html") to the bottom of newly generated .htaccess file.
