TOPIC: not rewriting customer script header('Location:

not rewriting customer script header('Location: 12 years, 7 months ago #26360

Hi, having problems figuring out a problem with joomla rewriting urls created by using redirect of PHP header('Location:

I would reallly like to understand why jomSEF does not capture the URL and convert it to an SEF URL. Any possible configuration for joomSEF to enable it to process the URL would be appeciated greatly. Suggestions of how to rewrite the custom included script or possible ways of a work around using .htaccess are also a bonus, please see details of environment and problem below:

VERSION INFO
JoomSEF version 3.8.2
Related extensions: Virtuemart/CherryPicker
Joomla! 1.5.23 Stable [ senu takaa ama baji ] 04-March-2011 18:00 GMT
Web server: Apache/2.2.21 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.21 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 PHP/5.3.8

CUSTOMIZATION
I have customized the Vituemart Cherry Picker Module to include a
require_once
UK vehicle car reg lookup script.

The included script has the following process steps:

1. Customer submits UK vehicle reg using form
2. Script queries vehicle details from DVLA database
3. Returned query variables used to do a PHP header('Location: URL sames as Virtuemart Cherry Picker
Example header relocate code:
if(!isset($_COOKIE['rm'])){
// Set new url with header
header('Location: index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=0&limitstart=0&product_type_id=3&product_type_3_Make_comp=find_in_set&product_type_3_Make='.$make.'&product_type_3_Year_comp=find_in_set&product_type_3_Year='.$v_year.'&product_type_3_Model_comp=find_in_set&product_type_3_Model=&product_type_3_Engine_comp=texteq&product_type_3_Engine=&product_type_3_Fuel_comp=texteq&product_type_3_Fuel=');
 
die();
 


4. Virtuemart Cherry Picker searches Virtuemart types and returns products

THE PROBLEM, ERROR or BUG
joomSEF does not detect and rewrite the URL of the PHP header('Location:....

Hi,
In your PHP code you need to use the JRoute::_() function to convert the non-SEF URL to SEF, like this:
$url = JRoute::_('index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=0&limitstart=0&product_type_id=3&product_type_3_Make_comp=find_in_set&product_type_3_Make='.$make.'&product_type_3_Year_comp=find_in_set&product_type_3_Year='.$v_year.'&product_type_3_Model_comp=find_in_set&product_type_3_Model=&product_type_3_Engine_comp=texteq&product_type_3_Engine=&product_type_3_Fuel_comp=texteq&product_type_3_Fuel=');
header('Location: ' . $url);

As simple as that LOL, thanks dajo, that's working fine now. Next on the list is .htaccess rewrite all vurtuemart category links to cherrypicker links so my reg cookie will keep the vehicle information even if the customer deciides to browse by category. I've never worked with rewriting variables so this should be fun.
