    ReadyTheme link token and Legacy SEO Settings

    Is there a workaround for this token not including the Store Code when using the Legacy SEO Settings? The token is used in the ReadyTheme Navigation sets.

    Code:
    &mvt:navigationitem:link;
    Legacy SEO Settings

    (All of these are checked)

    Enable Short Links
    Always include Store Code in URL
    Include Product Page Identifier in Breadcrumb Links

    URL Delimiter: /

    Prefix: Page

    Suffix: None

    Product Page Identifier: PROD

    Category Page Identifier: CTGY

    There are two results using this token

    CTGY links produce a Fatal Error: Unable to open store 'CTGY'

    Page links go NTFD.html (the message "We're sorry but it appears that the "NTFD.HTML" page is not available at this time.")

    I'll just delete them out Kelly. You should come to MivaCon next year, seems like a decade since we've caught up.

    We can work around this via htaccess to re-introduce the store code to the URL in the appropriate spot when using legacy rewrites. If you'd prefer to go that route just shoot me an email.
    Thanks, David, I went old school. Only about a dozen links were affected. It was much easier to hard code them than to mess with settings and the htaccess file. Once the big fix is out, I can roll back to use the ReadyTheme Navigation Sets.

    Thanks - if I do that, what impact will it have on SEO? All of the current links have the Store Code in them. Wouldn't that break all the links out in the wild?

    No worries - I went old school and temporarily hardcoded the broken links
