Hello there opencart community, first of all I would like to thank you all for the amazing help I was able to find around here in the multitude of forum posts and all, absolutely amazing!
Alright, so I am experiencing a problem with seo optimizing my categories and maybe I will have the same issue in the future with my products.
OK, I am using the SEO url optimizer from design, works great for things like the information tab, I was able to extract the information_id with no issue and tidy my links up, but on categories something its off, first of all my categories dont appear as category_id= but as this index.php?route=product/category&path=61_62 and I've tried every way to write them up in the SEO optimizer but it just wont replicate on the main site.
I am using Opencart version
I do have a .htaccess file, without txt, il also paste what I have written inside there, maybe its a issue from that, personally, i'm bamboozled.

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine On 
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R,L]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^route=common/home$
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ http://%{HTTP_HOST}? [R=301,L]
# 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]
RewriteRule ^download/(.*) /index.php?route=error/not_found [L]
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 used to have 404 issues with the information SEO's before, but using this made those go away and I could optimise them properly.
Again, thank you in advance for the assist, much obliged!
