TOPIC: JoomSEF and VirtueMart Products Categories module

JoomSEF and VirtueMart Products Categories module 12 years, 11 months ago #5091

Hello,

I use mod_product_categories with JSCook menu. I have some problem with this menu after turning on JoomSEF with VirtueMart plugin (problem does not appear when JoomSEF is off).

I've do some research and found that script which generates the menu behaves like it does not get value of one variable when its value is equall to 0. The Real Url is:
index.php?option=com_virtuemart&TreeId=0&category_id=6&page=shop.browse
but script behaves like it get
index.php?option=com_virtuemart&category_id=6&page=shop.browse

Is it possible that JoomSEF or VirtueMart plugin ignores the variable?

Best regards,
Łukasz Indeka

I have a similar problem but I am using mod_product_list rather than the categories module.

This is available from i-onepage.com/freesoft/

It is a very,very useful module but if you have SEF enabled all URLs still have the standard VM junk.

Basically, Artio SEF is not generated for any URL that this module generates. I think this is because the developer has bypassed the standard VM method of generating the URL instead going for a hard-coded version of the same.

If anyone has any ideas as how to make it SEF friendly then please let me know. A donation will be forthcoming for the correct answer. I'be been in touch with Ken Wong, the developer but no response so far.

I have pasted the whole code here. The module is a small one.

Re:JoomSEF and VirtueMart Products Categories module 12 years, 11 months ago #5115

I have had a new version of Ken Wong's "products in list form" module modified to be SEF (Search engine friendly). I have used this mod_product_list on more than one site and it is very useful indeed providing functionality that is missing from core Virtuemart. However, on the original there were two problems, firstly, the URL's the mod generates are not SEF friendly and are ignored by tools such as Artio SEF. This is the module's fault as the original generates the URL's in a hard-coded fashion rather than using the vm_parser to generate the URLs as a VM component would normally do. Secondly, the hard-coded URL has the item id set to 1 which causes the pathway to be missing the 'home' link. This caused formatting problems on my templates that have a pathway showing. I had the code changed so that this version is now fully SEF compliant and will work with SEF packages that generate human-friendly URLs such Artio JoomSEF. This updated version is now a good module and indispensable on a VM shop.

You can get the modified version here: lightquick.co.uk/downloads/view.download-11.html
