    Hi guys,

    I have been using magento for my eCommerce business and have find it very good. Slight problem thought! My cousin was trying to sort something in the back end he said he was in the configuration/developer bit. Anyway he sorted the problem but it has created another.

    My sites url has changed from http://www.mysite.co.uk to http://www.mysite.co.uk/default/ and it does this with category pages and products.

    Please help guys because i don't have a clue.

    Cheers

    What was he trying to sort out? That's quite a big change.

    login to the backend of Magento and go to:

    System -> Configuration -> Web

    What are the settings for Unsecure and Secure URL uls set too?

    Unsecure:

    Base URL: My URL

    Base Link URL: {{unsecure_base_*****}

    Base Skin URL: {{unsecure_base_*****}skin/

    Base media URL: {{unsecure_base_*****}media/

    Base JavaScript URL: {{unsecure_base_*****}js/

    Secure:

    Base URL: My URL

    Under Unsecure/Secure base url, does it specify the "/default/" at the end of your URL? Is your Magento instance installed in public_html , or a directory?
