    Idea to use Slugs to produce SEF [ VIDEO ]

    What should show is show a suggestion. Let the admin give the opportunity to insert his own suggestion. It can be pre-filled with -1 or -2 or even with -100 if the phrase is UNIQUE, the system will accept. Why bother the admin with his phrases he put? if the system put -1. the admin not care for it, why bother? If the admin seriously want to change.................... yep................ that is kind of the lookup what is required. but yeah................ here you show things working on the background.

    the slug do more. it not add after: https://www.freeOSC.com/Pears-p-3.html the additional -p-3 it only uses https://www.freeOSC.com/Pears.html There is no check required to read p-3 as a product_id=3 As a slug is unique and returns ( from the DB) the correct ID

    Do not forget............. The way how it is code is not you have to use it or sticked on. You can use the add-on, assign just - 5(slugs) out of 100 manufacturer. - 20 (slugs) out of 40 categories - 200(slugs) out of 5000 products. That is the part i like ( THE COOL STUFF), you don't need to. If you put a slug.................... no problem. If you not................... no problem............ If you mix it................. Not even a problem at all. That is a kind of difference with current systems. it is called "CHOICE". You not have that somewhere else. It is all fixed................ that is simply how they are teached to program ( the new guys) ( helllll no................................. old guy go for FLEX) I rest my case and yield back. I leave the rest open for the audience!

    The only thin i CAN say is ............ if a client put his mouse over a link (i not go lie about this.................. i check the link i click on............... if the link say A............. i want it to show A, if the link say A and shows me B..................... I"M OUT) ( but that might be a learning curve of how to use the internet).

    What made clear is: It is NOT proven search engines RANK SEF url's above other url's.But.............Now you know what you click on. The rest i keep it open to anyone's own interpretation

    Like i said, this is NOT something i want to argument about. I just offer ( or make an attempt) a code that generates SEF url's. I not go in debat if it is required/needed. That is why i made the poll.

    I agree, but the checking is more exclusive. A warning is ok, but in this time period a warning is not sufficient. Based on the warning, it should also offer a suggestion. Think about it like this: you want to register ( i know microsoft do it)........................ to a product. you type a name, it not accept, as it is already in use. This product offer you sub-texts ( like a nickname). you can choose one, or you keep try another. The system i say............... you not keep try.......... you NOT require a warning, it just add -1 or -2. Hey................. this is not a logon system. you can (try) change the slug to what you want. As long as there is no duplicate. Keep in mind this is for inserting products , manufacturers and categories. you do not want to be surpressed with a warning.................. you CAN show a notice. But if the system automtic add -1 or -2 Why bother.............. you can change it after to what you want.

    Perhaps this toss up questions like these: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/8449540/php-detect-mysql-update-insertion-failure-due-to-violated-unique-constraint/8449628 For the respected audience this might not make any sense at all. It does not even make sense at all in relation to the idea of introducing a sef SYSTEM ( SLUGGED BASED URL'S). i let the expert's (dev's) read in this case how to handle error's. ( if not bring it up............. no one go bring it up.............. and you wil be stucked in history/ancient coding philosophy). Keeping an audience is great, especially if it can be maintained by a few. Generating an audience, ( means also developers who regain (back) interest in oscommerce), ............... THAT WOULD BE AWESOME. - Old code is GREATH ( that is how the new learned to make it better) - New is COOL ( As this is where the OLD pointed awards to) So........................ no matter what the new does. The old code still works with (the/as) the new. ( it would be easier to work with the new, but we do not have that)

    This system hijack the tep_href_link function. So in search-engine results the link itself will not show up anymore as https://yoursore.com/products.php?products_id=XXXX it now show up ( keep in mind that the products_info.php via a htaccess can be declared as product/ or product_info/ etc), with the actual phrase you assign it with ( multilingual url's) It is NOT proven search engines RANK SEF url's above other url's. But............. Now you know what you click on. And the ranking....................... that can be a debate. But i not looking for that. ( this is a debate on it's own. Ask yourself......... do you need SEF url's.......... i not advice on that) I not like the "self generated "chemo" link system", and i do not like the other attempts to "auto-generate" oscommerce linking system. If you here put a SLUG.................. you can use that slug only once for EACH language. - you cannot use for a manufacturer CANON............. same slug for a product or a category - you cannot use product-X assigned to a product for a category or manufacturer. How i made/designed it: if you put once CANOn ( for ANY REFERENCE, lets say......... a manufacturer) Next time you type CANON for a product or a category......... it automatically change it to CANON-1. So it avoid duplicates. If you type CANON-1 it make it CANON-1-1

    Oscommerce websites for sale?

    So............. if i am correct. You want to sell your store. You just want it to put it in a nicer Jacket as where you left of? No one stop you from "Upgrading" your current/old system to a newer version. What you do after with it................ there is no area here for that. There are other markets for that. Keep in mind what you asking now for in public is: Try to Sell an old Mercedes. Bring it to the Mercedes Garage.( let tune it up by the engineers working in the garage) Put YOUR Car in the "shop window"................ And let ignore the Dealer (osCommerce), their latest model! you can let tune it up ( here).......... but put your store on amazon or eBay or another channel for selling it! I personal not be against a forum (topic) for what you asking.

    HoneyPot Captcha

    At the end.............. You go figure it all have to do with it. That you are doing THAT ( so what you do). There is much room open for many others to tackle that. To goal is to prevent. To monitor ( what means storing form $_POSTS................ mwaaaaaaaaaaa , i think that is a most unwanted subject of the cause). At the end............ if it is HoneyPot, a GUARDIAN SYSTEM, or google reCaptchaV2 or google reCaptchaV3 ( you tried v3?). osCommerce users simply do not like to be spammed. If put that first and can agree on that. That would might be a step forward for the whole community.
