com_joomsef3.zip: 1c797946c6e1cb9f4b48a5d7602b3fbf (in another's name for naturalpathhealthcenter.

We have a form that comes up when someone wants to order a restricted product. It allows the user to fill out a Chronoforms form and then it is supposed to submit it to the ChronoForms Plugin

The page with the form in the context of how it is used is www.naturalpathhealthcenter.com/amino-ac...roduct-use-agreement

If you open the Chronoforms Forms Management page, there is a link you can click on to open the form and process it. naturalpathhealthcenter.com/index.php?op...me=restrictedproduct

If I change the url to the page with a https: as in
www.naturalpathhealthcenter.com/amino-ac...roduct-use-agreement

then everything works, the database, the emial and the thank you page.

How this article is called is buried in some popup windows that I have not found yet.

Is there a way to simply set up JoomSEF redirection so that

www.naturalpathhealthcenter.com/amino-ac...roduct-use-agreement

becomes

www.naturalpathhealthcenter.com/amino-ac...roduct-use-agreement

Thanks!

Is there a version of JoomSef that is compatible with running Joomla 1.7 under the packaged systems like WampServer, JAMP, or MovAMP?

I have tried the free JoomSEF and it clobbers the site, just giving me 500 Internal errors for both the site and the admin back-end.

I would like to be able to develop and demo websites using this technology and them move them to a production environment.

Thanks@

I'm sorry if I wasn't specific enough in explaining what I need.

With help from this forum, I did figure out how to create a SEF url that displays a list of products in a VirtueMart category.

Now I need to figure out how to create a SEF url to display a Joomla article. I did look at the articles and have identified the article ID's of the articles I want to display.

So, how to I specify a SEF url that will display an article (i.e. where id =78)

Thanks!

Downlaod ID: (hidden) for VirtueMart extension

I am helping to move a large VirtueMart commercial website and we purchased JoomSEF 3 and the VirtueMart extension.

I am new to VirtueMart.

Joomla 1.5.23
VirtueMart 1.1.9

This forum showed me how to set up SEF URL's to access Memory-and-Cognition/View-all-products.html
as index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=118

Now I have a page with some links to questionaires that can't be found that look like this

www.naturalpathhealthcenter.com/index.ph...h-Health-Center.html

In this case, Customer-Care is NOT a VirtueMart Category, a Joomla Category, and I can't find it in VirtueMart.

This is probably simple, but I don't know how to set up a SEF URL to properly access the html file (there are also several questionaires access via similar syntax.

Can you please steer me in the right direction or give me an example? Also, where do I find these html files and file that references them.

Thanks!

Thanks so much for your suggestions David.

The links you supplied gave me just the info I needed to make the cart work properly.

I had read in another forum about a problem with SSL and cookies, but one of your links explained the entire thing to me, that the cookies save in non-secure mode were not available in the secure checkout mode and that is why the cart was empty.

There were a number of suggestions and since the site was down for ordering for a number of days, I chose the simplest fix for now, which was to set the VM Site URL to https:..., just like the Secure URL. Now the cookies are all stored in secured mode and the cart is populated when you go to checkout.

I am really glad we purchased the Artio JoomSEF products for this site.

Thanks again for your help!

Downlaod ID: 69a6966cbf5629255ad63f8589b75ed6 for VirtueMart extension

We moved a large VirtueMart site to GoDaddy. We replaced a 2009 version of sh404SEF with purchased versions of JoomSEF 3 and the VirtueMart extension.

We purchsed a GoDaddy SSL certificate.

We are getting an error when trying to add a product to the cart, saying "Your browser does not accept cookies...". Nothing is added to the cart.

I have searched for solutions and made these changes to my site to try to solve this problem

1) Turned off ajax updating of the cart

2) Made sure that the domain name is always the same

In virtuemart.cfg.php
define( 'URL', 'www.naturalpathhealthcenter.com/' );
define( 'SECUREURL', 'www.naturalpathhealthcenter.com/' );

In .htaccess
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^naturalpathhealthcenter.com$
RewriteRule ^(.*) www.naturalpathhealthcenter.com/$1 [QSA,L,R=301]

I am not sure this problem is due to JoomSEF or the extension, but these are the things we have changed.

Thanks!

Your help with creating SEF url's for VirtueMart categories solved a problem for me. I am helping to move a large VirtueMart site to GoDaddy.and we bought JoomSEF 3 and the VirtueMart Extension.

My problem is now with checkout and when I click on "Checkout in products/cart I get an error with the url
"naturalpathhealthcenter.com/index.php?pa...mp;Itemid=1077" Changing the ssl_redirect=1 to =0 allows it to work, but it doesn't appear to be using SSL.

I have read that VirtueMart does not work with SEF url's in checkout and I read that there is some option in JoomSEF to enable/disable SEF url's in checkout, but I can't seem to find it.

I am new to all of this. What do I have to do to make the checkout work properly? I think this is all that is holding up the move.

Thanks!

Thank you! It is working now. I had to leave the Itemid: yy off in the real URL.

I see that the extension created automatic SEF URL's for all of the many products on the site.

There are a bunch of autogenerated SEF urls.

Using the Manage SEF page how should I encode a SEF to open the VirtueMart "Asthma" category view-all-products.hmtl page?

Thanks again for the list of things to check. I checked and they are all set correctly.

I did some checking and found out where the index.php is coming from. There is an article with pictures and links to the VirtueMart categories and the link had the index.php. Removing did not solve the problem.
The URL is now nphctest.com/Asthma/View-all-products.html and it gives me a 404 error. The index.php is

Downlaod ID: 69a6966cbf5629255ad63f8589b75ed6 for VirtueMart extension

I am working with a small group to move a large Joomla VirtueMart site to a new server. The old site used sh404SEF (a 2009 version) and he SEF url's didn't work on the new server. Using JoomSEF made them work, so we bought JoomSEF 3.0 and the ViirtueMart extension for Joomla 1.5.23.

The new site tries to use a url like nphctest.com/index.php/Asthma/View-all-products.html to view products in the VirtueMart Asthma category. On our test server with JoomSEF and the VirtueMart extension, we just get a HTTP 404 Not Found error.

What do I have to do to get this url to work?

Thanks!

I am moving the hosting for a large Joomla 1.5.23 site with VirtureMart.

The existing site uses sh404SEF, which doesn't run on the new hosting system. I want to move to JoomSEF.

The current system has sh404SEF accessing he VirtueMart data using a vmchk folder and then the category and an html file.

I see you seem to have two Joomla extensions for JoomSEF and VirtueMart. Which one do I need? I currently have the Free JoomSEF installed (current version), but am recommending we purchase a copy.

I need this info quickly so I can get his working.

Thanks

I'm using JoomSEF free version for some non-profit web sites with Joomla 1.6.4 and it is a great product!

My problem is that had one page on each of two webssite that I have specified that the modules in the left column should appear "except wen checked" and the modules still appeared. I have ither pages where were set up the same way that worked correctly.

I search found:

This seems like the problem with Itemid not handled correctly. Go to JoomSEF configuration, Advanced page, and check that "Exclude source info (Itemid)" and "Reappend source (Itemid)" are both set to No or both to Yes. You can also try setting the "Ignore multiple sources (Itemids)" option to No.

Don't forget to delete the already created URLs and clear the JoomSEF's cache after the changes in configuration.


This fixed the problem on one web site, but not the other. I can see an option to edit/update the url's, but not delete them, so I did not do this part of the instructions.

What should I do next?

Thanks!

I am having a problem using JoomSEF with a Facebook commenting module. Facebook says I have an invalid value for og:type on a page. Viewing the source gives me

<meta property="og:type" content="Chose a type" />

How can I change "Chose a type" to "website" to solve this problem. I can't seem to find a setting in the JoomSEF that will let me do this.

I really need an answer soon because I need the Facebook commenting.

Thanks!

Using pluggin FBComment4Article on Joomla 1.6.1 for FaceBook comments on articles gives the error "Warning: urbanmadison.org/urban/welcome-to-urbanmadison-org/ is unreachable."

Clicking on this link (on UrbanMadison.org) gives a URL Linter page with an error message "Your og:type may only contain lowercase letters, _ and :. i.e. it must match [a-z_:]+" and lists the Input URL as "urbanmadison.org/urban/welcome-to-urbanmadison-org/"

I found an article said that the org:type should be something like "website".

I looked at he ArtioSEF meta data for this page and did not see any reference to org:type

I would reallly like to use this pluggin because I want feedback on articles and it helps advertise them on Facebook, but I need to get rid of this error.

If you go to urbanmadison.org (just setting it up), you can see the error.

Thanks!
