TOPIC: Joomsef url rewriting is not working first time.

Joomsef url rewriting is not working first time. 7 years, 4 months ago #35596

I am using JoomSEF and Virtuemart joomsef extension to rewrite Virtuemart category pages and product pages.
Now when a user clicks on Virtuemart Category or a Product for the first time it shows normal url (index.php?option=com_virtuemart .......) instead of JoomSEF url. But after the first click it works fine and redirect a user to SEF url.

I think this might be due to Cookie but I am not able that how the Cookie are being set by this plugin.

Kindly revert back soon.

Website url is www.edukart.com

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

If the first URL contains vmcchk=1, then it's caused by VirtueMart's Cookie check. You can disable this in VirtueMart's global configuration.

Hi dajo

I want 301 redirection from old url like index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.product_details&product_id=33&category_id=2 to new sefURL like category_name/product_name. For that i edit my sefurl in manage url and set old url in alias but when i am trying to access old url it will redirect me to home page instead of sefURL.

I think i miss some configuration steps. Please help me and thanks in advance.

Hi,

It should be working if you set the Alias as:
index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.product_details&product_id=33&category_id=2


Make sure that you don't have any custom RewriteRule set in your .htaccess file to redirect such links to homepage.
