I'm working on migrating a well established instance of Magento over to Odoo 8.0, however I don't want to lose all of the search engine rankings for all the product page URL's that i've built up over the years.
I believe there has been some discussion towards implementing this into 9.0 core, however these features are very important for anyone who is considering migrating an already established website over to Odoo CMS and/or E-Commerce so as not to lose all of their hard work done on SEO.
Is anyone currently working on this type of module for 8.0 or master?
Hi Luke. I chatted briefly with some from the Odoo team on Git https://github.com/88kbbq/odoo/commit/b93b3ba4902d340e4d39be3f098289754d1875b0 and it's highly unlikely we'll see this feature anytime soon. I've attempted to design a module to address the ugly URLs but found that the entire Odoo CMS relies on URLs for functionality like language settings, inline editing, e-commerce, blog posts, events, etc. So the doc type number has to be included in the URL and the filler slugs like "post" and "product" can't be removed even with URL rewrites. It'll break the front end completely. Unfortunately, there is not a single CMS out there that is built according to SEO best practices. Not a single one. Magento does the best job with major tweeks, but it lacks important business tool like CRM, blog, etc. I'll look into customizing WordPress with WooCommerce and Yoast SEO plugin bundle and just integrate a CRM form from a CRM I'll choose later. This is just ridiculous really. All these new CMS like Grav http://getgrav.org/ and PageKit http://www.pagekit.com/ still don't address multi-lingual, multi-currency sites with SEO best practices from Moz.com, Goolge, Bing, Yahoo, or common sense. Kill me here.
Has anyone an idea, if there is any .htaccess one could rewrite manually? you say this would break system too? I mean if you use promote function, it also redirects in does not break right? I see this also very problematic, because it definitely has impact on promoting pages. It already would be great value to be able redirect old url-structure to new (though slightly more ugly) one.
