Hi, there. I've spent a few hours trying to figure this out, and haven't done so (obviously). When our site is in maintenance mode, the home page shows the maintenance message, but if you click any link on the page, it will take you there no problem (product/category pages, cart/checkout pages, info pages, everything). This has been reported by two different visitors, so it is not just my browser cache/cookies.

openCart v1.5.5.1,
elegantCart theme (latest),
vqmod v2.x (but only one plugin is using it- Category Toggle Menu for 1.5.5.x),
Override Engine v5.2 (but when i disable this, i still get the same behavior).

update: I just turned off "use seo urls" and the problem went away. So I guess it's not a big deal for now, but I would still like to know why it's happening.

from .htaccess:

Code: Select all

# SEO URL Settings
RewriteEngine On
# If your opencart installation does not run on the main web folder make sure you folder it does run in ie. / becomes /shop/ 

RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^sitemap.xml$ index.php?route=feed/google_sitemap [L]
RewriteRule ^googlebase.xml$ index.php?route=feed/google_base [L]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [L,R=301]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*\.(ico|gif|jpg|jpeg|png|js|css)
RewriteRule ^([^?]*) index.php?_route_=$1 [L,QSA]
I'm putting the site back in seo url mode for now, in case anyone wants to test for themselves.

Hi there,

I'm getting exactly the same issue with our site ( I've added manual links into the top menu (and footer) using the seo urls, and when any of these are clicked it bypasses the maintenance mode. For those without seo urls (contact us etc), it still works...

If anyone else has this problem, this seems to fix it:
