shf404sef mix things up

6 years 7 months ago #2067 by Balou

Hi Bram,

working with your great script, i am running in some rewrite problems.

I have instaled shf404sef component and when i activate it (with the basic .htacces)

the Ajax search form, after makeing a choise, turns to english, i see all the fields but nothing to choose from anymore. ( this doesn't happen if shf404sef isn't activated)

I also have problem when i am Sorting on Price High Low New Popular (in dutch)

I have looked in the forum to find a .htaccess file wich might solve this problems, but couldn't find one.

Can you help me to make one?


Thanks in advance

    It has been silent around sh404sef for a while and now suddenly two issues within a few days..

    First external 404 components should not be used with the datafeeds component (<skip>reasons</skip>). sh404sef allows to be disables for selected components and that worked fine as far as I know.

    It appears that the sh404sef does not correctly redirect POST requests. Is your datafeeds menu ( the one with the issue) your home page ( default page ) ??

    With the other issue I noticed that sh404sef replaces the menu id from the correct one ( for example 144) with the default menu id ( for example 109 ) thus pointing to non-datafeeds menu without any valid setting using the default values ( thus english )

    I don't have a recent version of sh404sef so I can't investigate whether or not it is a bug in sh404sef. Since the mod_datamenu works fine with normal joomla I assume it is a sh404sef issue.

    I have some ideas how to solve/patch the problem, but I can't investigate

    I had problems with my Home page because of not having my own language installed in Administator - Language - Content part.

    I had Dutch for Front and Backend, but not for the content (inhoud)
    After adding that, my home page works again, even when using the sh404sef component.


    For those who face same problem:

    Ga naar Taalbeheer - Inhoud - Klik op Nieuw

    Vul vervolgens in:

    • Nederlands
    • Dutch (NL)
    • nl
    • nl
    • nl-NL

    and Publish

    For other language its the same - language - content - new - and fill in you country specifiques.

    I am having a problem with the sort option.

    When i select a option from the mod datafeed dropdown box i do get the right results. But then when i click on sort to lowest/higest price the mod datafeed shows the initial products from that menu (Men) instead of the lowest/higest results Men/Sweaters.

    men.html?sort=price&order=asc


    If i use mod datafeed link in the menu then it sort okay.

    men/sweaters.html?sort=price&order=asc




    Its the same with sh404sef activated (without mod datafeed) or with a deactivated sh404sef = only use the joomla sef


    How can i solve this?

    You are using the ajax style menu right?

    Then the sort options won't work since the base href of the webpage ( menu.html) is different from the base href je fetched items would have ( menu/sweaters.html)


    you must move the sort code into the com_datafeeds layout AND use the full URL as link.
