[CONTRIBUTION] Ultimate SEO URLs v2.1 - by Chemo

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the nice contribution.

 

I have a little problem, mine url's are appearing as follows:

 

www.minedomain.com/catalog/greatpairshoes-p-122.html

 

how can i get the url to look like this:

 

www.minedomain.com/catalog/great-pair-shoes-p-122.html

If you are using the latest V2.2d version, that should be how the url looks as is but only if the product name is something like "Great Pair Shoes."

Yes you can use Ultimate Seo urls 5 (5 PRO soon as well) as long as you are on PHP5.2.X. See my sig.

A new version has been uploaded, fixing some mistakes in the last version. To upgrade, just replace the includes/classes/seo.class.php file.

Sorry, my English is not good. I have installed the extension, works very well. Thank you very much! However, I have about 8,000 references, for example, in the search engines Google, MSN or Yahoo in the format http://www.example.com/index.php/index.php/cPath/34'>http://www.example.com/index.php/index.php/cPath/34 or even http://www.example .com/product_info.php/cPath/34/products_id/195 (for example) are listed. How can I rewrite the URL according to the new URL to a correct answer 301 servers maintained?

 

Thank you for your help!

The seo.class.php file would have to be edited. The extension doesn't make a difference to the search engines though so that would just be for your preference.

You need to add redirect commands to your .htaccess file. For example, to redirect a url like http://www.example.com/cPath/XX, where XX is any number add

RewriteRule ^(.*)/cPath/(.*)$ index.php?cPath=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

I haven't tested this but it should work. There are many sites on the web that go into redirect farther so you can look up the solution there if this fails.

I just have a question. is the product number suppose to be in the URL

like this

/vanity-license-plates-fantasy-and-horror-dragon-license-plate-p-1332.html

http://cosmoscrystal.com/graphics/vanity-license-plates-fantasy-and-horror-dragon-license-plate-p-1332.html

Yes, that's how the code knows product the url belongs to. The number has no effect with regards to the search engines so removing it is just for appearance.

How can i see letter "ä" in the urls?

 

Or if that is not possible is it possible to get the letter "ä" to be shown as letter "a" in URL?

 

Now ULTIMATE SEO disables all scandinavian letters and doesn´t show them.

You need to enter that into the special characters setting in admin. For ä, you would enter ä=>a

Thank you for your very fast reply Jack_mcs!

 

But I´m still having some difficulties though. My settings are:

 

Enter special character conversions ä=>a

Remove all non-alphanumeric characters? false

Reset SEO URLs Cache false

 

URLs with letter "ä" still not working... What now?

It should work with categories cache enabled. My guess is that since it was enabled when you added the characters, they weren't seen. If you re-enable that option now, it should work.

Excuse this question as it is rather basic - I'm new to oscommerce, and thank you for the SEO module. Im using template monster template oscommerce version: RC2.2rc2a

 

Is this SEO module compatible with the above mentioned version - when I went through the install sequence the code to replace mentioned in html_output.php was not the same as the code in the template.

 

Apologies once again for the newbie questions. Thank you.

*** This is a serious breakage of STANDARD Seo Uls Functionality ***

 

301 redirection of standard osCommerce urls (including experimental search engine friendly) was a very important and STANDARD feature of seo urls as created by Chemo. It was obviously key when creating this contribution that indexing of old osCommerce urls MUST NOT be lost. If the original version had this issue it would never have become so popular.

 

 

You need to add redirect commands to your .htaccess file. For example, to redirect a url like http://www.example.com/cPath/XX, where XX is any number add

RewriteRule ^(.*)/cPath/(.*)$ index.php?cPath=$2&%{QUERY_STRING}

I haven't tested this but it should work. There are many sites on the web that go into redirect farther so you can look up the solution there if this fails.

 

Why should he have to mess with .htaccess RewriteRules just to reclaim a feature that should already be there? This is another example of the core product being broken by the 2-2.2d series.

 

To reclaim this important feature you can use the known stable "2.1d original updated" or the newer Ultimate Seo Urls 2.1d STABLE FINAL r164.

 

My personal recommendation if you are on php5 is Ultimate seo urls 5 which 301 redirects ALL uri types.

Ultimate Seo Urls should be compatible with anything .. BUT .. Template Monster templates may look good but are notoriously badly written and often break standard osCommerce PHP functionality.

 

You'll just have to try and see I'm afraid.

I wish I hadn't done that upgrade - my Manufacturers aren't being referenced correctly.... I just get references to -m-10.html etc. What's worse is that the old URLs still work with the manufacturer's name in them so now I have duplicate pages...
