In Topic: Seo And Cloned Product Names

16 March 2018 - 04:00 PM

Yes, I understand we wouldn't want to automatically overwrite SEO data on product name revisions.


I guess perhaps I'm suggesting there might be a special case for Cloned products - which are effectively *new* products without an SEO history to damage.


I believe there is some value to looking at CS-Cart as a consumer product, especially in its MVE mode, where users are potentially not technically savvy, and these kinds of unintuitive aspects of the application could be refined.

Because it's an "initialization", not a setting.  There is no requirement for an seo-name to have any relationship to a title.  It is only done when the seo-name is empty.


You can easily use the 'update_product_pre' PHP hook to force the SEO name value to whatever you want, but doing so as a default would destroy many sites and give many unintended results.


I'm not sure why you don't see the issue here.


The SEO title *is* public facing - it forms the product's path name, visible in the browser.


So even if the vendor revises the product name in the course of creating a new product based on a standing one, the SEO title and URL for the product remains named after the product that was cloned.


It's entirely unintuitive and certainly potentially confusing to customers and vendors.


Wouldn't it make a whole lot more sense to re-write the SEO title / path when the product title has been revised and saved?

Thanks for the update to the forums organization - I appreciate the new focus on MVE.


That said, I wish there was some emphasis on attracting new vendors in your plans.


The backend of the shop is becoming painfully dated compared to many other popular multivendor environments and makes supporting and encouraging engagement with the shop difficult. Most complain that it is far too time consuming to add new products, understand shipping, etc.


I would be happy to outline some ideas for improvements based on our three years of running our MVE.

If you're talking about the path style, its a preference in the SEO Addon (I'm assuming you're using it). You might need to re-enable the add-on, or revise your settings.
You can also choose to remove the page extensions (.html)

From your admin console, go to Administration > Languages > Translations


In the search bar enter "terms_and_conditions_content"


The content is html, so be sure to replace with same.
