mod_show_subcategories module - SEO problems
« on: October 28, 2008, 00:44:15 am »
Hello there.

Im using Joomla 1.0.13 + VM 1.1.2 + JoomSEF 2.3.0 + JoomSEF VirtueMart Patch 1.0.1 + mod_show_subcategories VM module

I created left side menu with mod_show_subcategories to show all VM categories in left side and also I made top (main) menu where I created "Eshop" VM component icon . If you click on Eshop icon, you skip directly to VM.

I found that URL from leftside  menu (generated by mod_show_subcategories)  is like "index.php?bla&root=xx&bla" but URL from Eshop is like "index.php?bla&bla".

So URL from leftside is SEOed to another SEO url than URL from Eshop menu from topmenu.

I found that mod_show_subcategories includes script from VM : ps_product_category.php

I looked there and found row 976. There is function for creating URLs, so i deleted root= part of it.

Question is - Do you think it brokes some functionality if I remove root= parametr from generated urls?
