I'm struggling to find a solution to permanently redirect Magento's system product URLs, that look like this http://domain.com/catalog/product/view/id/473. My goal is to automatically redirect them to their search engine friendly version: http://domain.com/blue-widget.html

I checked my system settings and made sure that Use Web Server Rewrites is set to yes in Under System > Configuration > General > Web > Search Engine Optimization, but for some reason the redirect is not working. Example URL

Note that I'm running Magento 1.7

Is the URL Key under Catalog->Manage Products->Product set ?
If this is set, there should be an entry in Catalog->URL Rewrite Management with Request

Path = catalog/product/view/id/473 and Target Path = catalog/product/view/id/473

  • So the URL key is set, but there the URL Rewrite Management entry you referred to doesn't exist...
