Hi all.

Im looking to remove the static landing page for a shopping website, I'd like to move the cart from ../products/ to the root folder of the account.

Is this easy to do?
The way I was looking to do it was move all files and folders to root, then update the 2 config files to remove the reference to /products/
Is it that simple? will I need to reinstall any vqmod extensions etc or should that be all that's needed?

I'll have to re run all the seo extensions I have running to reflect the folder changes but I wanted to check in here first before I make the change.

Thankyou

You usually only have to rewrite your BOTH config.php files, and the .htaccess file, from:

Code: Select all

# SEO URL Settings
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /products/
to:

Code: Select all

# SEO URL Settings
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
to make such work again, after you moved the entire /products/ Sub Content to the Root Section. Just make SURE, to have no other Stuff in the ROOT Section, such as another .htaccess file, or another index.php File, then, it should work, after you also re-initialized the VqMod (/vqmod/install/) again. And also make sure, to clear out the /vqmod/vqcache/... and /system/cache/... Sections as well.

thankyou for your reply.
I had completely forgotten about vqmod!
