Hi,

I want to have a URL like this for the products:
mywebsite.com/my-product-alias

In configuration I have:
Force canonical URLs on listings: Use canonical URL if specified
In a specific product (for test) I entered in SEO > Canonical URL > I copied past the alias

When I click that specific product in products listing, I have the url: mywebsite.com/my-product-alias , but I have: error 404 - page not found

I have:
Search Engine Friendly: URLs YES
Use URL Rewriting: YES

Can you please help me on that?
am I missing something?

Regards

Hi,

The canonical URL system is not a SEF URL alias system. You can't just put whatever you want there and it will work. You need to put a valid URL. The goal of that option is to tell search engines which URL is the main URL of the product.
If you want something to be able to have whatever URL you want for the product pages, you need a SEF URL alias system like there is in sh404SEF which is a SEF extension.
