you could just do it with a rewrite , but before you go do that, why on earth would you want to remove a file extension for SEO,, to make a se wonder if it that is image or pdf or script??

don't do this - its not a good idea... and that is coming from an SEO

You may also use the category as parent and product under that category as child (options) depending on the type of products.
But if you have typical product say a plumbing valve starting from 1" to 12" then you have basically difference size, weight and price difference and it is not user friendly to clone the product per size difference under the category. Then the best method is most probabably to use non-category type parent-child structure. (similar to cs-cart product with options)
With current version of cs-cart, you can create options per products. But the options does not have capability of supporting or linking to the existing child products available in the database.
This also true for the add on "Required products" which does not support the
product with options.
This is also true for product configurator. Product configurator does not support product options available
on the database.
I have have only tested two shopping carts in the past. they are Virtuemart and Magento
- Virtuemart has nice display configuration feature for the parent - child structure (without the use of category as parent product)
- Magento has also product -child structure. Each child product is actually a product.
. You can also appoint a feature to each child product (say size feature 1" upto 12"). you will then a short display for the seperate products as options.
If you are not going to plan to use product configurator or required product and also alot of typical product with large number of product options at the same time,. you will not be disappointed with cs-cart.
I am not in position to recommend you other product and I am sure that cs-cart currently is one of the best choice for overall and price. But this may not be the case for me if I find a suitable alternative cart with typical better organized parent child type configurable product and also product configurator and I am ready to start from the scratch.

In fact your assessment is wrong, you need to open your thinking abou this. Cs- cart actually handles this better than any cart out there - is just isnt overt, I wrote another post about this - magento - tries to implement this and actually had the right concept but fell way short on two accounts with excessive need of scripting to add products to the cart button.

Thanks for the quick reply, wow i couldn't imagine they would do a major revision and do nothing to speed things up a bit, i guess it possible to alot of house cleaning to get things a little quicker.. maybe some server utilities - db caching and script caching or gzip ... but , i am amazed on a hybrid dedicated as you stated would not be lightning quick.. i was going to do a similar set up....

Is it possible to get a new license for 1.35 still?

a lot of misinformation out there. Don't believe much of it - and especially anything google releases. Well , not saying they they don't do some of what they say. but, they certainly don't do as they preach.

I have stopped running scared at every new seo bit out there.. marketers - run circles undoing all there good work fearing doom with each news. Only to see google just experimenting again.. STAY THE COURSE --- do what seems logical and don't panic on the news........ this is not the stock market..
