I want to prettify every manufacturer url from default structure:




I'm trying to do this by "Catalog" > "URL Rewrite Management"

enter image description here

But, It doesn't work (I get 404 error)

Is the right way?

  • It looks to me like you'd have to write a custom module with a controller that finds the manufacturer by name rather than id, then use some simple .htaccess rerwrites -> rewrite info: addedbytes.com/blog/url-rewriting-for-beginners [check the part about parrots/norwegian-blue/ from get_product_by_name.php?product_name=norwegian-blue

You can achieve ".html" after each url by below instruction:

Go to System -> Configuration -> Catalog -> Search Engine Optimizations and modifying Product URL Suffix and Category URL Suffix respectively.

But for your above request for change url from "mysite.com/store.html?manufacturer=107" to "mysite.com/nameofmanufacturer.html" , It seems you are trying to open category and filter manufacturer attribute. But its not possible.

You can do 1 thing which is better as per my suggestion: Create category with "nameofmanufacturer" then you will get category url "nameofmanufacturer.html". NO need to include this category in MENU if you want. Also after this you can use "REWRITE URL" for redirect from "mysite.com/store.html?manufacturer=107" to "mysite.com/nameofmanufacturer.html". Hope this will help you. :)
