To create custom SEO-friendly URLs in OpenCart, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the OpenCart administrator panel.
  2. Go to System > Settings > Edit > Server tab.
  3. Set "Use SEO URL's" to "Yes".
  4. Go to System > SEO URLs.
  5. Click the "Generate" button to generate SEO-friendly URLs for all products, categories, and other pages in your store.
  6. Edit the generated URLs as desired to make them more SEO-friendly.


It's important to note that after making changes to the SEO URLs, you should clear the cache and regenerate the .htaccess file to ensure the changes take effect. This can be done from System > Maintenance.

In addition to the steps mentioned above, you can also create custom SEO-friendly URLs for specific products, categories, or pages in OpenCart by following these steps:

  1. Log in to the OpenCart administrator panel.
  2. Go to Catalog > Products to edit a specific product, or Catalog > Categories to edit a category.
  3. In the product or category edit page, scroll down to the SEO tab.
  4. Enter a custom SEO-friendly URL in the "SEO Keyword" field. Make sure to use relevant keywords related to the product or category.
  5. Click the "Save" button to save the changes.


For custom pages, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create a new page in the OpenCart CMS.
  2. In the "SEO URL" field, enter a custom SEO-friendly URL for the page. Again, use relevant keywords.
  3. Save the page.


Remember to clear the cache and regenerate the .htaccess file after making any changes to ensure they are applied correctly.

To regenerate the .htaccess file in OpenCart, follow these steps:Open the "Admin" folder in your OpenCart installation.Open the "index.php" file in a text editor.Add the following line of code at the beginning of the file: define('CFG_REBUILD', true);Save the changes and upload the modified "index.php" file back to the "Admin" folder.Access your OpenCart administrator panel.Go to System > Maintenance.Click the "Rebuild" button to regenerate the .htaccess file.Once the process is complete, remove the line of code you added to the "index.php" file to prevent the .htaccess file from being regenerated again in the future.


By following these steps, you can create custom SEO-friendly URLs in OpenCart for better search engine optimization.
