TOPIC: Virtuemart issues

Virtuemart issues 12 years, 1 month ago #29366

Hi,

I have JoomSEF and Virtuemart extension and was quite happy with the way it was working, having manually edited the url's to look the way I wanted then "Disable creation of new SEF URLs?" Yes. The reason I did this is because some of the URL's did not appear the way I would like them to and had some duplication in the url's eg.

SEF URLs:
rugs/rugs/natura-4840-88-brown-rug-80-x-150-cm.html
purple-rugs-and-runners/purple-rugs-and-runners.html

I would like these to be:
rugs/natura-4840-88-brown-rug-80-x-150-cm.html
purple-rugs-and-runners.html

I wonder if, perhaps this is duplicated becuase of menu links - perhaps there is an option to disregard these if the advanced options, which I have not noticed?

Whilst I was happy with the URLs I have edited and not worried about creating new URL's, unfortunately, disabling creation of new SEF URLs creates some problems when searching by parameter and using Galt's Cherry Picker module. The problem being that pagination was not working, when multiple parameters were selected. When using global SEF and JoomSEF Free (by the way, I can't seem to disable the free version - when I disable component I get the link appearing) this works fine. I need to either find a way around this or learn how to create they urls in the way I want.

Also I have noticed when "Automatic canonical link generation" is yes that this doesn't seem to generate any canonnical links on my site. On my site I would like the cannonical for the below url's:

/grey-rugs-and-runners/aurora-45058-2464-rugs.html
/patterened-rugs-and-runners/aurora-45058-2464-rugs.html
/modern-rugs-and-runners/aurora-45058-2464-rugs.html

to be, simply:

/rugs/aurora-45058-2464-rugs.html

Or have I misunderstood how the canonical link generation works?

Hi,

The first part of URL is by default the menu item title. You can disable this in JoomSEF -> Manage Extensions -> VirtueMart -> Common tab by disabling the "Add menu title" option.

What do the non-working pagination URLs look like for Cherry Picker? Please post some examples.

If you want to disable JoomSEF, you either need to disable all plugins that belong to it, or you can disable JoomSEF in its Configuration (not in Joomla's Extensions manager).

Canonical links generation does not work like that. It can only generate canonical links for SEF URLs with some non-SEF variables appended. For example, if you visit URL:
domain.com/some/sef/url?page=4
the canonical link is generated linking to main SEF URL:
domain.com/some/sef/url

Hi,

Thank you so much for your response. I had not realised manage extensions had parameters too!!!!!!! Great to see Cherry Picker is supported, also :-). No longer worried about the issue as I'm happy with the URL's which are created, so happy with "Disable creation of new SEF URLs?" NO..... However for your information it was just that when page 1,2,3ect was selected the page stayed the same.

Fantastic component - wish I had purchased a long time ago and realised how to manage extensions sooner!!!! Will definately purchase again for my next project.

Nicola
