Seo names issue from upgrading from older cs cart
was using a cscart 2.2.1 version
this problem will also apply to all people who upgrade to this solution
now updating to this solution have the following 3 problem
some issues with
1 SEO addon
old url of product in v2.2.1
new url of product has no html on end
one good this is the new feature to make redirect automatically when url is changed. but if have a old url with html in it then system not working when importing from older versions of cart
2 the way html files handles now
would be nice to be able to redirect older html based named files
3 not able to edit ssi to redirect to correct url
could do with some control panel to edit the redirects at a later stage when you have time
> new url of product has no html on end
In order to resolve it, please go to Add-ons > Manage add-ons > SEO in the store administration panel, select the desired format of the product SEO name in the Product SEO URL format list and click Save.
> would be nice to be able to redirect older html based named files
You can set up redirects on the Website > SEO > 301 redirects. Please note that it will work if the original page is not accessible.
> 3 not able to edit ssi to redirect to correct url
> could do with some control panel to edit the redirects at a later stage when you have time
Unfortunately, the request is not clear enough. Could you clarify it in more detail?
thanks for your reply
sorted now with SEO addon and fixed all issues
New issue is this
Image upload URL
take a product image
take any image that has been uploaded in any product or category
when you check the link to the image location its not coming up as on the server where the cart is hosted
this is bad for seo and does not look good at all
even the ur is too long
this above url should be in the path to the file for seo and for professional look to webdesign
and when google indexes the website images they will scatter accross the cloud all over and not link back to the website from where the image data was orignally published
looking forward to resolution
Thank you for the reply.
We are glad to hear that the initial issues are resolved.
As regards the image URL, the issue is that Merchium uses the CDN service from Amazon CloudFront for better speed in loading images and statics for your customers and these are the links to the files that are located on the CDN servers. I am afraid that there is no way to change this URL in Merchium.
i wonder then if its possible to use the same system as in the seo addon
if can allow manipulation of the url the user sees in the address bar of such images using the redirect option
if a url is shown as this if you right click on it or open in a new tab
if can have option to then cause a redirect of the image somehow to show the url of image in root directory
and after site is published to this
i know this will get complicated so if can implement this option for the first main image for each product is better to have on main url always and can leave other secondary images with the non domain specific names
to make it simpler and avoid all this complication for us and yourself and addition coding is also a simpler solution is to store the main photo on the clients server and only additional images they upload send to the CDN service
some clients who dont know about CDN will think the browser has been hijacked by seeing suck domains and worry and leave the site
at the bottom of browser on can see the urls and when things load from another domain they dont like it and especially with such long complicated names of locations of files
sorry if im talking too much and requesting too much
i have to share my view and experience and feeling about such issues others users will also question and no doubt raise
Thank you for sharing your opinion and worries with us. We highly appreciate it.
Unfortunately, there is no way to disable the CDN service for the store and redirect the images in the way described. However, this topic is located in the Suggest a feature forum. Our engineers and our partners from Marketplace read the forum and perhaps a solution will be found in the future.
Thank you for your help.
