  1. Problem solved. Here's the solution, which may be helpful for others. The search problem, as noted, was caused by forward slashes in Custom SEO URL Paths. There were a number of Product Names in the database which included slashes, so these were removed from the names, and the Custom SEO URL Paths were checked to make sure no slashes remained. The problem with Category Names appeared to be caused by identical category names existing in the database. So duplicates were renamed, and the Custom SEO URL Paths were checked to make sure only the category name was showing, and not the full path to the directory, including slashes. Once a duplicate Category name was changed, it was possible to modify the Custom SEO URL Path, which previously were effectively 'locked'. A quick way to see which categories and products contain slashes is to look at the database Table structure for table `xzc_CubeCart_seo_urls`.
  2. In CC5.2.8 I'm getting a 404 file not found error when using search on some site pages. I have 'Enable SEO URLs' turned on. The problem only seems to occur on category or product pages where the Custom SEO URL Path includes a directory, rather than just the category or product name on its own. IE: a search for a category or product with a Custom SEO URL Path such as "christening-wear/shawls" fails, while a search for a category or product with a Custom SEO URL Path such as simply "shawls" works fine. Setting "Enable SEO URLs" to 'Off' seems to solve the problem. Pages whose Custom SEO URL Path includes a directory, search using the following type of URL: www.treasuredfavours.co.uk/catalogue/christening-wear/index.php?_a=category&search[keywords]=search term&x=11&y=9 Pages whose Custom SEO URL Path does not include a directory, search using the following type of URL: www.treasuredfavours.co.uk/catalogue/index.php?_a=category&search[keywords]=search term&x=8&y=3 Inserting that category name into the search URL would appear to be the problem. While it's possible to remove the directory names from the Custom SEO URL Path for some categories and products, others stubbornly refuse to be modified in the Search Engines tab. Does anybody have any thoughts on this? I'd rather not have to resort to turning "Enable SEO URLs" to work around this problem.
  3. Further to my post yesterday at 04:02 PM, all seems well since I turned the store on - I was testing it while logged in as an admin user with the store turned off. :wacko:
  4. I'm just setting up a copy of 4.4.3 to be used with PayPal Website Payments Standard. I have come across the same problem whereby the PayPal transaction goes through OK, the purchaser returns to my site to see order confirmation message "order_processing" (rather than "order_success", which I would have expected). There is no record of the payment in the Transaction logs, and the order is created as 'Pending' not 'Processing'. This means of course that clients could login to their admin area and pay again before the order can be switched manually from 'Pending' to 'Processing', which would be a pain. I am using the following notification settings in PayPal: IPN, Set To Receive Messages: http://mydomain/mystore/index.php?_g=rm&type=gateway&cmd=call&module=PayPal Return URL, with Auto Return On & Payment Data Transfer On: http://mydomain/mystore/index.php?_g=co&_a=confirmed&s=2 (I changed the last character from 3 to 2 in the hope of the store showing "order_success" rather than "order_processing" via confirmed.inc.php, but it didn't change anything). Anybody any thoughts? Thanks.
