Pretty Url not robust to title change

Recommended Posts

I bought the addon pretty url

https://addons.prestashop.com/fr/url-redirections/16633-pretty-urls-supprimez-les-id-et-les-numeros-de-l-url.html

 

I found the urls are not robust to title change, contrary to the classical id-title treatment in prestashop.

 

For instance: The original url from prestashop is

https://labopichot.com/fr/2-piluliers-plastique

 

if I change the title of the category to piluliers plastique france, the new url is

https://labopichot.com/fr/2-piluliers-plastique-france 

but the old url still works

https://labopichot.com/fr/2-piluliers-plastique 

This is nice because I can keep updating titles without my clients having broken links in the email I sent pointing to the old version of my website.

 

With pretty urls, we loose this robustness, there is a 301 redirect from 

https://labopichot.com/fr/2-piluliers-plastique 

to

https://labopichot.com/fr/piluliers-plastique

but if I change the title of the page, to piluliers plastique france, the new url in pretty url becomes

https://labopichot.com/fr/piluliers-plastique-france

but the old url

https://labopichot.com/fr/piluliers-plastique

is broken.

 

This is a big issue for our sales department which sends many quotes per day and we cannot afford links to be broken. I have thus deactivated this module. Is there a way to make pretty url robust to url change like the original prestashop treatment (using the category id in the background ?).

 

Thanks,

Anthony

Yes, by buying an alternative and try before you buy next time. We came across the same issues which the author is not interested in fixing.
