i still have the problem with the menu but its not a big deal, i have another more serious problem:

when someone is browsing a category http://www.sitenamehere.gr/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=26&Itemid=1 he cannot use the next previous page buttons, as you can see nothing happens when i click on the 2nd page

I'll have a look into this, thanks for pointing it out.

for now i have disable the sef urls from joomla.
In order to understand what i mean, when im browsing a category:
http://www.sitenamehere.gr/index.php/home/%CE%94%CE%B9%CE%AC%CE%B4%CF%81%CE%BF%CE%BC%CE%BF%CE%B9/26
the next pages of the category have links like this:
http://www.sitenamehere.gr/index.php/home/%CE%94%CE%B9%CE%AC%CE%B4%CF%81%CE%BF%CE%BC%CE%BF%CE%B9/26&limit=25&limitstart=50
which are not working.

Without sef the above links are:
http://www.sitenamehere.gr/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&category_id=26&page=shop.browse&Itemid=1&limit=25&limitstart=0
http://www.sitenamehere.gr/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&category_id=26&page=shop.browse&Itemid=1&limit=25&limitstart=25

Also other options are not working like &limit=85 which change the number of displayed products on every page

Thanks for pointing that out Margaret. Unfortunately I haven't had time to work on the router file this week. I'll allocate some time for next week, and let you know how I progress. Cheers, Paul.

Hi Margaret,

I've done some testing and can see that the Sort by listbox causes some issues. It's unfortunately the way Virtuemart has written the listbox to not allow URL rewriting. I've added this as a known issue. You can check out the updated documentation: http://paulmason.name/blog/item/search-engine-friendly-sef-urls-for-virtuemart

I've just updated the router.php file to handle Manufacturer pages, and added the instructions on how to link to it: http://paulmason.name/blog/item/search-engine-friendly-sef-urls-for-virtuemart

For your consideretion this virtuemart sef module works with listbox options http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/extension-specific/virtuemart-extensions/virtuemart-administration/15248
Maybe you can check it out and find a workaround for your module too?

Hi Paul I uploaded the router.php to component/virtuemart and turned on SEF URLs through the backend of joomla!.  I am having a problem with the check out button still.  It gives me a 404 page not found error when I click the check out button.  Could you please help me with this?

Hi Paul

Any chance you could reply to my email and comments which I put on your site regarding problems using the virtuemart component menu whilst using your extension.

I'm developing www.menter.net at the moment. When I use your extension and the virtuemart standard menu in hte left hand site of my page, the virtuemart left hand menu disappears when I click on a product (when your extension is disabled the virtuemart left hand menu disappears).

Do I need to create a custom menu? If I do I would then loose the search engine box etc.

Best regards

Chris

I've just updated the router.php file. It's looking a lot more solid.

Hi Paulmason411

Thanks for your VM Router. I'm having a problem with Portuguese characters as you can see at http://www.natiris.pt/pt/produtos/cc3a9rebro/17. Instead of "cérebro" it's showing "cc3a9rebro". How can I deal with this?

Waiting your answer.

Regards

I know I saw it somewhere, but I am having a problem with -- in the url, and duplicate names as well. I have posted on your site however I think it needs approval. Just a link to the solution or the solution itself would be great.

Thank you in advance for this wonderful addition.
No such thing as a stupid question, only a stupid answer. I won't ask if I know the answer or found it using the search as you suggested.
