Hi

 

Version 4.3.3

 

I have a question. At the time of installing the cart I did not change the default settings in the SEO addon that sets up the URL structure of products and categories

 

If I change the category URL to www.domain.com/cateogry/page2 will the addon automatically add 301 redirects from the old URL?

 

If not then is there a good way to do it manually? I have a large number of categories and sub categories so adding 301 to URLs one by one will not be efficient

Yes it should.  If I recall there is a checkbox that is automatically checked to redirect old->new that can be unchecked if that's not desired.

Then it's a setting in the SEO addon.  Suggest you simply create a new category and then just change the SEO name and see if you're redirected to the new when referencing the old.

Hi tbirnseth

 

My challenge is right now the category URL is set to /parent-category/category/page2

I want to change this to /category/page2

 

Once I do it, all my category URLs will be updated to the new structure at once and I am worried if the addon does not auto 301 these URLs then I will start to see a lot of errors

The addon will create 301 redirect for all the old links properly. You can test any old link to make sure. You can also change the url format back if there is any problem.
