Redirect Manager?

Postby webpie it. » Sat Jan 07, 2012 7:39 am

I've looked can't find anything of this nature.

Is anyone intending/on their to do list, build a redirect manager for opencart?

I have found this ti be an issue with clients disabling categories and pretty much causing a dead-end within their shop through google.

Just curious?
Regards

I haven't ever come across one, but I can see how it would be useful.

Hi Jonathan thanks for the reply as your name has more weight on an issue than mine!

I have found an equivalent in wordpress and works like a dream!

I actually wondered though is it possible? as i have found 301 redirects via the .htaccess annoying, as i only found them work when a "?" was placed at the end of the url.

Is it possible Jonathan? I just think being an e-commerce store a category disabled causing a dead-link is pretty much losing sales, as google does not pick this up right away, and trust me some clients think google works that quickly, so a redirect manager would be perfect and i believe a big seller!

For the future i really do think this could be a core function, as disabling a category i have found is just to primitive for an e-commerce store now.

My thoughts on it and would love to see a redirect manager about on OC, probably my only wish, as i can handle everything else, but this is murky issue for me.

It's definitely possible, and I've added it to my list to develop in the future, but I can't guarantee when I'll get around to it.

Very cool to know it's possible!!

Totally appreciate that Jonathan! Well i look forward to it sometime! This is the reason i put it out there as i think there is a use and a market for this, and because of the high standards of your mods, this would also fit nicely in there too! Lol
