Hi guys


What do you suggest for changing category name to different. This category and its sub-contents are now heavily embedded into Google so simply changing its name will not work and throw up constant 404s.

you can go ahead and change the name & url, then setup redirects accordingly.

You can change the category name (and title and description) any time you want. Just don't change the seo url or you will have to do redirects. I tweak mine all the time to improve seo

Running Opencart v2.2 with multi-stores from which has links to all my stores.

Take note, however, that countless SEO extensions may provide the possibility on reflecting the changes to SEO URLs while changing the category name and its description.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.
