Rewrite Url For Index Not Working


Recommended Posts

Hello, please anybody can help me:


I want to change just the home url of my website from www.mywebsite.com/catalogo/ to www.mywebsite.com/catalogo/some-text-here

I have tried in back office Preferences > SEO & URLs > index > modify 

Filled with "some-text-here" in field "Rewrite url", but nothing happens.


Could anybody help???


Thanks in advance.

Hi Alphaloc, i'm afraid that this will change the root folder instalation, i have tested and as i expected didn't work.


What i need to do is simply add some text at the end of the home url like here www.mywebsite.com/catalogo/some-text-here here but i dont want to touch the root folder nor move any files from its original location.


i was thinking to do it by touching the .htaccess file, but i'm not an expert.


maybe touching this section:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -s [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
RewriteRule ^.*$ %{ENV:REWRITEBASE}index.php [NC,L]

try to not just disappear the "index.php" but also add "some-text" after the home url, and need that it just happens in home page!!!!


Weird i know, but need it for SEO tests.


Please help!
