    Hi,
    I have created my first shopping cart with opencart, everything is working fine

    But i have a requirement for my website. I have already activated seo friendly urls

    Now i want some urls with my main keywords like
    http://www.mydomain.com/my-first-keyword
    http://www.mydomain.com/my-second-keyword
    http://www.mydomain.com/my-third-keyword
    http://www.mydomain.com/my-fourth-keyword
    http://www.mydomain.com/my-fifth-keyword
    http://www.mydomain.com/my-sixth-keyword

    when i open these urls Page not found page is opening.

    I want to change it to something like these pages dont show Page not found page.
    Instead of it they show my full product range and also these pages take meta keyword from urls

    Please give me some solution
    Thank you

    It's an htaccess rule that needs to be activated. That particular shopping cart installs with the htaccess file named with a dot txt extension. Review the htaccess file and then rename it. You may even need to uncomment the lines regarding the SEO friendly urls.

    When in doubt, Google search opencart / htaccess / seo friendly urls

    Also, make sure you enter a product and associate that product to a category. By default the store doesn't show friendly URLs without at least one product in one category.

    Oh, and Opencart is easy but generally sucks down the road for any type of customization or complex product options.

    http://www.acca-online.com/acca-lsbf-p5-online-training-videos

    But i also want these urls to work
    http://www.acca-online.com/study-acca-online
    http://www.acca-online.com/acca-online-video-trainings

    Right now when i try above urls they take me to Page not found
    I dont want to show Page not found on these urls i want to show
    all my 16 products on these pages with heading like
    Study ACCA Online
    ACCA Online Video Trainings

    I hope you got my point

    You can set the seo URL in the product details. You can make a product URL anything you want by changing it on the product details page. Go to the product you wan to set the URL for, go to the "Data" tab and input the URL you want here: "SEO Keyword:" Then save your product changes and check it on the store.

    Is your question that you want both URLs to point to the same product? If so then you would have to do that with manual 301 redirects.
