Can someone please just tell us what you have used and actually works even if it's not free. Maybe a sticky thread? I have read and read and searched far and wide and still can't find a straight answer.

I have tried most of them out there (acesef, sh404sef, joomla's native sef, virtuemart sef, htaccess, etc.) and they all seem to break something important on virtuemart (i.e. checkout!).

Ideally here's what you could control (at a minimum):

* URL
* Description
* Page Title
* Keywords

Anyone have something robust they can recommend? Would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I think the best strategy is to disable SEF when using https especially during the checkout. Choose a SEF that will allow you to do that.

SEF is actually not needed during checkout, right?
Joomla/VM Upgrade Services. Problems with your migration? We can help.
Custom extensions to VM. Performance Tuning. Template modifications and advices.
Pay service to make VM work according to your needs. Your Joomla/VM solutions are just a PM away.

Tried that but for whatever reason virtuemart just doesn't like SEF even if you disable certain processes. It seems the only reasonable option to accomplish all sef tasks is to hack the core and even then it's iffy. I personally have been battling this one for a good 6 months and I can't seem to get it to behave. I'm sure if we all put our minds together we can make virtuemart sef friendly.... at least that's what I'm hoping!

So far I have description and url nailed (or at least acceptable) but title and keywords don't want to play nice.

I also try one of the sef tools but I have no idea what it does (please see photo)


I interested in what you said about able to control in minimum *URL
Do you mean able to change the URL from sometihng like   index.php?option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=n/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=75&category_id=22&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=     to more meaningful?

I try locate the $url by some keywords.

com_virtuemart\themes\default\templates\common\featuredProducts.tpl.php

this file may be control the url link of each VM product.

Looks like sh404sef v2.2.4.955 is working well with my VM v1.1.5 and joomla v1.5.22

I'm happy to report I can control URL, page title and description all from the admin panel for each page. Alias URL's and duplicates are cumbersome but very welcomed since it's behaving for the important things like checkout!

Also works fine with checkout I set to NO SEF for SSL and it's behaving.

It's telling you your Joomla sef if turned off. If you need it on, chnage it in your Global Configuration's SEO Settings.
