So despite having Use Categories Path for Product URLs checked to yes I still see some products with the ugly URL like /catalog/product/view/id/12019/s/ - the majority of products have the expected SEO-friendly url's but quite a few still don't. Why does this continue to happen and would it be possible to correct this in bulk? I have a few thousand products that have this URL structure.


Reindex and clear your cache. Also check if you have mod_rewrite enabled if you are using Apache.

  • I tried this and am still not seeing the updated URL's. I also do have mod_rewrite enabled. – user16280 Nov 19 '14 at 15:53
  • Try reindexing via SSH if possible and only the Catalog rewrite index. – mbalparda Nov 19 '14 at 15:58
  • Does it actually matter? I only checked the Catalog rewrite index and it didn't work. I don't have access to SSH unfortunately :( – user16280 Nov 19 '14 at 16:01

check also if you have .htaccess in your root.
