need help

Hi

 

I am using oscommerce 2.3.1

 

When I type in ben 10 play tent in Google, I come up first and click on the link and goes to my page but says product not found but the product is on the page

 

I did used to have seo url 5 add on installed by fwr media and it worked for a bit and then it messed up so i removed it all and just use the search engine friendly url in the admin side and set it to true

 

The ben 10 play tent on google is http://www.irhmedia.co.uk/product_info.php/ben-alien-force-igloo-play-tent-p-326 which is wrong

 

The link that works is now http://www.irhmedia.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=326

 

How do i fix it so when a customer searches for ben 10 play tent in google it comes up with the product and not product not found

 

I am losing business because of this problem

 

Any ideas anyone

 

Kind Regards

 

Ian

you can make htaccess 301 rewrite rules for the old urls you want redirected to the new ones.

Howe do I make the htaccess 301 rewrite the rules to redirect to the new ones instead of the old ones

That one would not work like you want....Use google to find tutorials on htaccess 301 redirects

 

but for instance the one url you mentioned could be redirected like this:

 

redirect 301 /product_info.php/ben-alien-force-igloo-play-tent-p-326 http://www.irhmedia.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=326

hi toyicebear

 

I googled it and found a site but not sure what to do

 

My hosting company said I would have to do each link but will take forever as have hundreds of links and products

 

is there no other way

Hi CNSS

 

Do the following

 

Go to your phpMyAdmin and find your osCommerce Database

Find the table administrators and empty it (attention: NOT DROP but EMPTY)

Then go again to your osCommerce admin panel

You will be asked to set a new admin
