bad SEF URLs with VM Extension 10 years, 8 months ago #41694

Hello,

Using latest JS ann VM extenstions (full versions).

In Main Menu the first item is "CategoryA" which points to a Category A in the VM.
My Home page is set to another menu.

The URLs to the cart and checkout are something like:

www.domain.com/categorya/cart
www.domain.com/categorya/bt

and so on.

This is some bad behaviour of the vm extension.
Yes, I can edit each url, but it shouldnt do this in the first place.

Note that the checkout has another problem.

During address fill up, VM's Jquery calls a ajax function to fill a country states.
The problem is that this call is done throught a relative URL (index.php?....).
This means that the call will be done in the same path as in the URL, in this case the /categorya/ path which does not exist.

VM should fix this (not sure if they want to).
So does the VM SEF extenstion. It should be aware of the problem. (and not use the /categorya/ in the URLs).

So far the solution is to edit each url with an address fill form to not be outsite the site root
or to change the BASE href to the site root (which might break some templates).

best regards
