Need help in creating semantic urls for Joomla 3 + Virtuemart 3
« on: January 12, 2021, 12:47:40 pm »
I have a Joomla 3 website using virtuemart 3. I notice in the cart page the url is domain/cart. Then on the payment page the same url is repeated (domain/cart). And once again in the thank-you-page the same url is used once more (domain/cart). I am wondering what is the best approach towards creating more semantic urls for the two latter pages? (i.e. domain/cart for cart, domain/payment for payment, and domain/thank-you for the thank-you page)

the menu option for the thankyou page is already there

index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=cart&layout=orderdone

choose it when you make a menu -> Order Done:  For tracking or to place modules on the orderdone page.

payment:   index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=cart&task=editpayment  ?

Hi and thank you for the prompt reply. The developer I have received the website from has set it up in such a way that no url parameters are present in the URL. What should I edit?
