Magento Manadev: Notes & SEO Scheme Settings Configuration

ManaDv URL Configuration

To configure ManaDev to display the required URL structure go to:

Manadev → SEO Schemas

Two or more schema options will then be displayed, one active and one or more redirects

manadev 1

Click on the 'active' schema to view the settings.

IMPORTANT: Before making any changes to the schemas settings, you must duplicate the current active schema. This will allow the old style urls to be redirected to the new style url's you are about to setup. This is especially important when the site has already been indexed by a search engine.

Once you are in the active schemas settings click the duplicate button, a success message about the schema being duplicated should be displayed.
