How do I display Search Friendly links instead of the normal Merchant links?

Instead of using Merchant's stock links I have modified my store to use "Search Friendly" links. I basically use the format www.mystoreurl.com/product_code.html for the short links. How can I do this in Focus?

In the template you'll find tokens:


which display the product name and thumbnail, respectively, as links.

To change the link (which by default uses Merchant's typical format) to use a "search friendly" format you'll need to replace those tokens with some code/text.

To display the link for the product name in the format you're after replace that token with:

<a href="http://www.ordercostumes.com/%product_code%.html">%product_name%</a>

Similarly, to display the linked product thumbnail replace the %product_thumbnail_linked% token with:

<a href="http://www.ordercostumes.com/%product_code%.html">%product_thumbnail%</a>

The same approach will work for the categories. The link to the category is displayed with the token:


Replace that token with:

<a href="http://www.ordercustoms.com/%category_code%.html">%category_name%</a>
