If it's that there is code that you used to add immediately after the language code, then you can just move it into the i() function.  Change

     if ( !self::$_singleton instanceof Usu_Main ) {
       self::$_singleton = new self;


Hi @ecartz,

I finally got a free day to check this contribution. I found your solution will not work because Usu_main has to be initialized after set_session_language and before ensure_navigation_history to work. If not, links are correctly generated but $_GET variable is not updated and Phoenix redirects to index in all pages that expects parameters, like product_info.

I found its code could be placed in application.php inside the set_session_language function, or it could be loaded by creating an entry inside hooks table between those two functions (an startApplication method). But as far as I see it implies giving a non-consecutive numerical sort order to the table entry (something like _16B_start_SEO ) and it seems a bit dirty to me.

Is there a cleaner way to do it?

Another thing: I've seen fix_numeric_locale is being called twice (from a hook and inside set_session_language function. Is this needed or has the function call just been forgotten?

Files outside ROOT seems to work now; I'm into fixing the ENABLE_SSL stuff. Is there any post where the changes introduced has been explained?

I think that a "non-consecutive numerical sort order" is probably the best solution.  Note that it doesn't need to be a database entry.  A hook file in includes/hooks/system would work as well. 

The closest thing to documentation is the commit notes (and the commit itself):  https://github.com/gburton/CE-Phoenix/commit/ae01e0d4d91b2e4a561735168ef4fbe6ba8e6899

I don't think that it is very complicated.  HTTP_SERVER . DIR_WS_CATALOG should always be used now, where previously it was only sometimes used (in the ENABLE_SSL false case).  For the most part, this is just simpler.  Because instead of having to check various things to determine the correct link, the code can just consistently use one thing.  The old system was complicated, as it had to try to mix SSL and non-SSL pages.  But this always uses whatever the HTTP_SERVER is configured to provide. 

Always back up before making changes.

That's correct for other SEO contribution. This is Ultimate SEO 5 and it's different, it needs a lot more tweaks.

I wonder if the contribution name should be changed to avoid this kind of confusions.

So is it being developed for That will be so cool dear.. 🤩

Hi @ecartz,

I've found an issue with a core module (nb_shopping_cart.php).

For constructing the URI the module uses this code:

// nb_shopping_cart.php (line 19):

  echo sprintf(MODULE_NAVBAR_SHOPPING_CART_PRODUCT, $p['id'], $p['quantity'], $p['name']);

// languages/english/modules/navbar/nb_shopping_cart.php:

  define('MODULE_NAVBAR_SHOPPING_CART_PRODUCT', '<a class="dropdown-item" href="' . tep_href_link('product_info.php', 'products_id=%s') . '">%s x %s</a>');

This means tep_href_link is called by the define before executing the sprintf command, so the llink is created literally as product_info.php?products_id=%s, avoiding the URL rewriter to be able to parse it correctly.

To make it work code should at least generate the real link in the module itself instead of the language file:

// language file:
  define('MODULE_NAVBAR_SHOPPING_CART_PRODUCT', '<a class="dropdown-item" href="%s">%s x %s</a>');

// module:
        echo sprintf(MODULE_NAVBAR_SHOPPING_CART_PRODUCT, tep_href_link('product_info.php', 'products_id=' .$p['id'] ), $p['quantity'], $p['name']);

or even more logical and simpler:

// Module:

  echo '<a class="dropdown-item" href="' . tep_href_link("product_info.php", 'products_id=' .$p['id']) .  ' ">' . sprintf (MODULE_NAVBAR_SHOPPING_CART_PRODUCT, $p['quantity'], $p['name']) . "</a>'";

// Language file:

I'll still have to figure out how to modify this app to parse links with {X}Y after the product id.
