Joomla Version is 1.5.17 and Virtuemart is 1.1.4
« on: September 18, 2014, 04:30:06 am »
Hi My Joomla Version is 1.5.17 and Virtuemart is 1.1.4,
how to do SEF setting for this version?
Any body can help?

Thank you before.

Which versions of Joomla/VM2 are you using?
Your current non-sef URL looks like this:
http://www.riovidastore.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=productdetails&virtuemart_product_id=19&virtuemart_category_id=3&Itemid=299&lang=en
I wonder what the "Itemid=299" is. I think this part shouldn't be there. You can check that in your database.

The recommended SEF settings are:
In Joomla configuration, set 'Adds Suffix to URL' to "No"
In VM2 configuration, set
'SEO Disabled' to "Off" (= unchecked)
'Seo Suffix' to "-detail" (or "shop" or "htm" or whatever you want).  DO NOT leave this field empty. Otherwise switching between categories and products will frequently fail.

BTW - if you change SEF settings, you will normally have to clear your Joomla and browser cache to pick up the changed settings.
