I guess I was trying to point out that I think home.php vs. index.html for the home page is a big who cares for SEO. AFAIK there would be no ranking difference in the search engines as neither adds any relevant keywords to index. To me DirectoryIndex has more to do with changing your underlying home page from home.php to index.html, index.cfm, index.asp or whatever your technology du jour is without breaking home page links and bookmarks.

You guys are looking at this in the wrong way. Instead of worrying about if it is home.php or home.html, you should redirect everything to www.domain.com. www.domain.com is one page and www.domain.com/home.php is another to the search engines. So again, this is another duplicate content issue.

I'll work on adding this into the code as an optional feature when I get home tonight.

hi,
i have purchase the paid version of SEO.
but i found that this one is better, as we can modify the source code for our need!

great job!

however, may i know why we need to disable:
SEO in the https connection?

if(AREA_TYPE=='C' && $HTTPS != "on" && $seo_enable) in the auth.php

is there any reason?

because rewriting urls when in HTTPS mode can break the website depending on your website configuration. Additionally, bots should have no need to access the HTTPS section of your site (someone even told me that bots aren't supposed to index HTTPS...)

so it's for stability/usability purposes mainly.

Possible bug... In v4.0.18 the rating system seems to stop working.

Okay, this has been fixed, and will be in the next release. If everyone could please test all *forms* that are available in x-cart, to find anything else that is broken, that would be great.
