3rd file: ./classes/Tools.php

 

update the function generateHtaccess()

 

find inside the function

also look for inside the function:

 $tab['RewriteRule']['content']['^[a-zA-Z0-9-]*/([0-9]+)\-[a-zA-Z0-9-]*\.html'] = 'product.php?id_product=$1 [QSA,L]';

also look for inside the function:

 // Classic URL rewriting
 if ($rewrite_settings)
  foreach ($tab['RewriteRule']['content'] as $rule => $url)
fwrite($writeFd, 'RewriteRule '.$rule.' '.__PS_BASE_URI__.$url."\n");

 

add this after:

//remove link id by Ha!*!*y
 if ($rewrite_settings){
  fwrite($writeFd, "\n");
  foreach ($tab['RewriteEngine']['content_no_id'] as $line => $rule){
fwrite($writeFd, $rule."\n");
  }
 }
//remove link id by Ha!*!*y

Hi HA!*!*Y

 

This solution has side effects:

 

All product metadata don't appearing and the title of page products show a default shop title.

 

You can fix this?, apart from this problem everything works fine

 

Thanks

This also worked partially for me.

 

It removes the ID's from product URL's, but it doesn't update all my URL's automatically, so all my links to products are broken.

 

Do I need to do something to my htaccess file to do that?

Thanks for your reply HA!*!*Y.

 

I did try regenerating my htaccess file from the back-office, but it didn't work.

 

Could that be due to permissions on the file on the server? If I CHMOD the htaccess file to 777 will that work?

Is there any progress in getting this to work for categories and subcategories? I had a bash at it myself, using your amends as a basis but unfortunately my dev skills don't seem up to the job as it didn't work! I edited the Link.php, Tools.php and config file but wasn't sure if anything needed changing in the ProductController, so perhaps that's where the issue lies...

 

edit - Just realised it's the CategoryController file that needs editing, not ProductController of course. Unfortunately still not working so must be missing something?

Brilliant, thanks for this. I will try this out as soon as I get the chance. I'm interested to see what bit of code I got wrong when trying it myself (probably the htaccess file - I must admit I don't quite understand all the rewrite code).

Hello, I am writing you because I had changed the URL of the items will be displayed without the category.

 

Ex. www.web.com/5-category/124-product.html to www.web.com/124-product.html

 

This I have taken from this post: http://www.prestashop.com/forums/topic/30419-remove-category-from-product-url/

 

When I apply the changes that you have indicated the URL shown without ID but instead the categories reappear in the URL.

 

I would like this: www.web.com/product.html

 

Someone could help me fix this?

 

Thanks!

antonpas_bcn

if all you want to do is remove the category name from URL its really easy

 

go to file ./classes/Link.php and find public function getProductLink

and edit out the line from

 

if (isset($id_product->category) AND !empty($id_product->category) AND $id_product->category != 'home')
 $link .= $id_product->category.'/';

 

TO

if (isset($id_product->category) AND !empty($id_product->category) AND $id_product->category != 'home')
 $link .= '';

 

 

AND ALSO

$link .= (_PS_BASE_URL_.__PS_BASE_URI__.$this->getLangLink((int)$id_lang));

if ($category AND $category != 'home')
 $link .= $category.'/';

 

TO

$link .= (_PS_BASE_URL_.__PS_BASE_URI__.$this->getLangLink((int)$id_lang));

if ($category AND $category != 'home')
 $link .= '';

Thank you for this solution. I want to ask what kind of side effects can be occur by doing these changes. İnitially I think about:

 

1-Duplicate url - Canonical url problems

2-Speed and performance problems

3-Core function or module problem

 

What kind of undesirable effects can be come out when we do this changes? Or isn't there any problem or negative effects?

Kerym there are some negative effects from it

1. Duplicate urls if you create two Products with the same seo url than prestashop will redirect you the the 1st of the 2 urls

 

2. if you keep the ID in the URL than you could change the SEO URL and the old URLS will 301 redirect to the new address

----- old url: www.web.com/category/124-product.html

----- new url: www.web.com/category/124-new-seo-url.html

 

3. As long as the modules use the getProductLink() function for the URLs there should not be any issues from it.

 

4. And far as performances go i don't see any slow down

How to remove ID from CMS Page

1./ Open /controllers/CMSController.php

Find:

if ($id_cms = (int)Tools::getValue('id_cms'))

Replace With:

if ($id_cms = (int)Tools::getValue('id_cms') and $id_cms != 0)

 

 

2./ Open /classes/Link.php

Find:

public function getCMSCategoryLink

Replace function with:

public function getCMSCategoryLink($id_category, $alias = NULL, $id_lang = NULL)

{

if (is_object($id_category))

return ($this->allow == 1) ? (_PS_BASE_URL_.__PS_BASE_URI__.$this->getLangLink((int)($id_lang)).'content/category/'.$id_category->link_rewrite) :

(_PS_BASE_URL_.__PS_BASE_URI__.'cms.php?id_cms_category='.(int)($id_category->id));

if ($alias)

return ($this->allow == 1) ? (_PS_BASE_URL_.__PS_BASE_URI__.$this->getLangLink((int)($id_lang)).'content/category/'.$alias) :

(_PS_BASE_URL_.__PS_BASE_URI__.'cms.php?id_cms_category='.(int)($id_category));

return _PS_BASE_URL_.__PS_BASE_URI__.'cms.php?id_cms_category='.(int)($id_category);

}

Find:

public function getCMSLink

Replace with:

 

public function getCMSLink($cms, $alias = null, $ssl = false, $id_lang = NULL)

{

$base = (($ssl AND Configuration::get('PS_SSL_ENABLED')) ? Tools::getShopDomainSsl(true) : Tools::getShopDomain(true));

 

if (is_object($cms))

{

return ($this->allow == 1) ?

($base.__PS_BASE_URI__.'cms.php?id_cms='.(int)($cms));

return $base.__PS_BASE_URI__.'cms.php?id_cms='.(int)($cms);

}

 

 

3./ Open /classes/Tools.php

Search for

public static function generateHtaccess(

Find inside this function:

 

if ($multilang)

{

 

Add inside this clause (if you used Ha!*!*y method for categories the add above this conditions the fallowing lines)

 

$tab['RewriteEngine']['content_no_id'][] = 'RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f';

$tab['RewriteEngine']['content_no_id'][] = 'RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d';

$tab['RewriteEngine']['content_no_id'][] = 'RewriteRule ^([a-z]{2})/content/([a-zA-Z0-9-]*) cms.php?cms_name_seo=$1 [QSA,L]';

 

 

After the if clause and above(if you used Ha!*!*y method for categories the add above this conditions the fallowing lines) add

 

 

$tab['RewriteEngine']['content_no_id'][] = 'RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f';

$tab['RewriteEngine']['content_no_id'][] = 'RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d';

$tab['RewriteEngine']['content_no_id'][] = 'RewriteRule ^content/category/([a-zA-Z0-9-]*) cms.php?cms_category_name_seo=$1&noredirect=1 [QSA,L]';

$tab['RewriteEngine']['content_no_id'][] = 'RewriteRule ^content/([a-zA-Z0-9-]*) cms.php?cms_name_seo=$1 [QSA,L]';

 

 

4./ Open /config/config.inc.php

append at the end of the file the fallowing

// Cms Category

if (Tools::getValue('cms_category_name_seo'))

{

$id_category = Db::getInstance(_PS_USE_SQL_SLAVE_)->getValue('

SELECT `id_cms_category`

FROM `'._DB_PREFIX_.'cms_category_lang`

WHERE `link_rewrite` = \''.Tools::getValue('cms_category_name_seo').'\'');

$_GET['id_cms_category'] = $id_category;

}

// Cms Page

if (Tools::getValue('cms_name_seo')) {

SELECT `id_cms`

FROM `'._DB_PREFIX_.'cms_lang`

WHERE `link_rewrite` = \''.Tools::getValue('cms_name_seo').'\'');

$_GET['id_cms'] = $id_cms;

}

 

REGENERATE YOU HTACCESS

 

I don't have enoght patience to explain this more clear, thus I ask the users reading this forum to make a more detailed explication.

Ha!*!*y - Please implement this functionality in your module and make it public to the word!

ODM, do you know if the same function can be used to take the number ID out of the manufacture as newimage has asked? Thank you for the great input :)

 

Is there a way to accomplish this for the manufacturer links. Right now it's showing 1_bose instead of just bose.

The same principle that Ha!*!*y started applies for ALL URL's. The only remaining ones are for Manufacturers and Vendors.

I have applied it for CMS pages (because this was asked by a client for one of my projects) If in the future projects I will require to remove the ID for manufacturers and/or vendors I will do it and post it here :)

 

 

 

PS1 It toked me 5 minutes to remove the ID .... All the files where the url functions are located are listed above, and it's pretty simple even for a "PrestaShop Apprentice" :)

 

PS2 I hope that Prestashop Dev Team has in mind the removal of IDs from all urls in the final version of 1.5 :)

Hi, Benjamin. Thank you for being so kind! :)

 

When I clicked on uninstall i got red error message that it can't be installed successfully. I know, it said "installed", not "uninstalled".

After that it was showing in modules that it really is not installed, but some of the links on the page were still "friendly" and pages were acting strange. I checked .htaccess and the "friendly" code really was removed. I don't understand the problem.

 

I decided than to try install it again, because it was working OK while installed. My site works perfectly now. I just wanted to remove it because some of my old links were already indexed in Google before installing this module, but never mind, Google will index new ones soon.

I am just hoping that this cool module will work on new versions of Prestashop, so I don't loose newly indexed friendly links! (they are really so cool without those unnecessary numbers! :))

 

p.s. I hope you understood me, because my English sucks!

Yes, website is working fine, just this module(Friendly URLs without ID Number v0.1 by HA!*!*Y) can't be uninstalled correctly on my Prestashop 1.4.8.3.

Hi all,

 

great module! Works great.

 

However I got two questions regarding this.

 

First off I think I broke something when I installed this as date and time won't show in carts and orders, see pictures. The date and time is visible when u click a specific cart or order though. Also a lot of information seems to be missing in the order details. Any idea how to fix this?

Also in the theme of the thread. An1 could tell me how to remove the .html for all product pages. So it just says productname...?

I installed HA!*!*Y module removeURLid_v0.1b.2.zip which works flawlessly for products and categories.

 

I also followed ODM's instructions on "How to Remove ID from CMS Page" but still couldn't get CMS pages to work without IDs.

 

The IDs still show on CMS menu links. When manually removing the IDs in the URL, I get the following error:

 

There is 1 error :

  • Missing category ID

Am I missing something here?

I think those instructions by OEM to remove ID# from CMS pages may have some problems because a few of us have problems getting it to work. In the meantime, if you just want no ID # for products, just install the HA!*!*Y module removeURLid_v0.1b.2.zip and that should work with no problems.

 

Hi guys, this is a Prestashop newbie on his first message.

I tried to follow the steps, but now I'm getting a blank product description page in every product detail. Since my knowledge as developer is very basic, I wouldn't mind of going back to the beginning and forget about deleting category and product ID's. But I don't know how.

- I tried to restore previous backups, when I didn't have this problem, but the problem doesn't solve.

- I also tried restoring the original files from prestashop 1.4.9 that I modified following the steps of this post (productcontroller.php, categorycontroller.php, link.php, tools.php and config.inc.php) but the page keeps being in blank.

Please let me know any solution in order to fix this problem.

Thank you all so much.

Ivon

 

Ps. I would give you additional information of the site if asked. Attaching a couple of escreenshots.

Hello,

 

i have problem with friendly urls in category.

I have PS 1.4.4.1

 

I made exactly the same as below:

 

FREE module available now:

http://www.prestasho...post__p__883380

 

 

To remove number from Category URL

 

1st file: ./controllers/CategoryController.php

 

update the function preProcess()

public function preProcess()
{
	if ($id_category = (int)Tools::getValue('id_category'))
		{ $this->category = new Category($id_category, self::$cookie->id_lang); }
	else //remove link id by Ha!*!*y
	{
		$id_category = Db::getInstance(_PS_USE_SQL_SLAVE_)->getValue('
			SELECT `link_rewrite`
			FROM `'._DB_PREFIX_.'category_lang`
			WHERE `link_rewrite` = \''.Tools::getValue('category_name_seo').'\'');
		$this->category = new Category($id_category, self::$cookie->id_lang);
	} //remove link id by Ha!*!*y
....

 

2nd file: ./classes/Link.php

 

update the function getCategoryLink

I removed (int)($id_category->id).'-'. from the functions in 2 places

 

public function getCategoryLink($id_category, $alias = NULL, $id_lang = NULL)
{
 if (is_object($id_category))
  return ($this->allow == 1) ? (_PS_BASE_URL_.__PS_BASE_URI__.$this->getLangLink((int)($id_lang)).$id_category->link_rewrite) :

But, I have another question. How to remove .html from product url?

 

I,ve tried to do this, but than I realized that this is zero sum game.

why?

because, if you are willing to spend from one to seven days for saving max 150$(this is the most expensive seo module) go ahead, if not, my suggestion is, buy seo module for presta. that is what I have done.

seo modules you can get from 40$-150$.

 

this is my opinion. you do as you think is best for you.

Anyone an idea how to use capital letters in URL's in Presta's latest version 1.5.2?

 

If I add or change a product via catalog > products > edit > seo the capital letters are directly changed into lowercase in the field friendly URL, so can't put it in.

 

Very frustrating because I don't want to make handmade redirects for my old indexed URL's wich look like /Products-Tennis.html for example. Now I can only make /products-tennis.html.

 

Wich piece of script can I change? When I make a category in Presta then it does allow capital letters. So it has to be possible.

 

Thanks in advance!

Can somebody help me out,

 

I tried this module and it removed the ID`s....but as i`m on a zeus server I cannot generate the .htaccess file. Now I am getting broken links even after removing the module and replacing my classes, controller, config and tools files. I cant find any info on the zeus equivalent to the .htaccess script that would make this work so is there any way to revert back to including the ID in the URL? I`m not sure exactly what files this module has overridden but i`ve tried a fresh install of my site from a backup and it`s had no affect?!!!

Did you had your Friendly URL + canonical URL turned to on when testing the Pretty URL module?

 

Yes

Presta creates always an .htacces file. It's hidden, see display hidden files in your FTP.

 

My .htaccess is visible, but I dont think that will make any difference as I`m on a zeus server. The zeus server uses a .rewritescript and i`ve replaced it but it`s made no change? Does this module overwrite any information in the database? It`s strange because i`ve basically replaced my whole site from a backup and the links are still broken

The issue was indeed with my server. Just for the record if anybody is ever thinking about joining register365 give yourself a good slap and find a good hosting service. What a disaster, i`ve had nothing but problems with them. The speed of their server varies between 6 to 60 seconds to load your site, 500 internal server errors...and the list goes on and on....I`m glad to say i`ve notified them I will not be renewing my contract....(probably not the right place for a rant I know but they`re a joke)

Hi BrianW, that is okay. Actually, it's good that you mentioned that your problems came from your hosting. A badly configured hosting set up can cause a nightmare, as you've so aptly stated. :)

Hi Benjamin,

 

Thanks for your reply. I have actually been in touch with A2 hosting. I was searching a few weeks ago for Prestashop recommended hosts and I came across them, and I seen you commented on them in another post which pointed me in the right direction. So all going well I should be making the switch soon, and i`ll be sure to use you link to do it ;)

 

Thanks for your help,

Brian
