hi, thanks a lot but it's impossible :
1 - i have a website live that is running since 2 years, here you give a solution that needs sa lot of risky modification to do into VM, and a lot of work to do manual 301 redirection
2 - it is a makeshift solution to avoid considering the compatibility of VM with other "monster" component as sh404. I'm sorry but this solution does not suit me : I will not venture to make so many changes in the component as it is sufficient that VM looks at the problem of compatibility with the market leader SEF component. Instead I would have to work double time to do everything by hand? Doing redirection in htaccess? not possible ... I have an online store to make sales and turnover not for loosing time in debugging VM functions or deprive me of my other components. That's incredible.
you know i'm fedup with VM
since 2 years i have spent too much time on this exclusive component, debugin a lot of issues and now that it is running with SSL i learn that there's incompatibilities with other "monster components"?? undoing this work that took me months is simply impossible, to much risks : i prefere changing my CMS for a real ebusiness complete and professionnal tools.
Many thanks for your help.
