Module presentation


This module replaces the management of Magento products URLs in order to avoid using the core_url_rewrite table. The products address is built with attributes, like: id-brand-color.html (the id is always at the beginning).

Existing products addresses before installing and activating the module will be redirected to the new ones.

Access and configuration

Configuration available in System » Configuration » Tools » Product URL rewrite.
Available in the Product URL rewrite tab in Catalog » Manage products.

Redirects of product URLs

The not visible individually products, attached to a configurable product or to a grouped product, are automatically redirected to the parent product (301 redirect). In case of change in attributes or values, old addresses will be automatically redirected to the new ones (301 redirect).

To redirect deleted products to the new ones, it is necessary to create a unique and global product text attribute, before entering it in the module configuration. Then, on each product page, it remains only to use it to register the old products ids (separated by a comma).

Installation and uninstallation

Nothing simpler with Magento connect (or by decompressing the module archive in the Magento root).

For uninstallation, having uninstalled the module with Magento connect, all that remains is to erase the configuration:
