renaming path folders

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Is there any way that osCommerce allows you to rename path names on your site. Like this website:

http://www.world-soccer-shop.com/shirt/eng..._soccer_jersey/

 

I would like my site: www.soccergrip.com to have such nice folder names and jersey descriptions in its url instead of:

http://www.soccergrip.com/product_info.php/products_id/166

 

Is there any mod that would allow me to do this or anything else? This really helps search engines rank you higher. :huh:

Yes - you can rename them and make suitable adjustments in catalog/includes/configure.php

 

 

The only directory worth doing it to is catalog - the others never show in the address.

 

You *could* do it with filenames - then the adjustments can be made in filenames.php - don't forget that there are identical filenames in your languages directory - these would need to be renamed too. Only do this with files in the base catalog directory and the languages directory.

Thanks for the reply.

 

What im trying to do is the following, change this:

http://www.soccergrip.com/product_info.php.../products_id/55

 

To this:

http://www.soccergrip.com/soccerjersey/---...e_jersey/------

the ------ I would like removed.

 

I dont think I can do this in configure.php and I think Im asking for too much. Would the only way to do this be to make html pages for each jersey or something? Please go to www.soccergrip.com and see what I did.. I got rid of /catalog/ already.

Nice work! B)

 

Yes, you are very limited in what you can do in this regard - there may well be other tricks for changing what actually displays in the address bar... but I don't know them.... hmmmm... interesting :blink:
