How to import a category SEO friendly URL
In order to import a category URL, you need to follow the template below:
URL_ ALIAS_ID: Each URL created on the system has its own Alias ID.
This field will be empty in the case that we want to create a new URL so that the system is able to create it. For the rest of the cases, there will always be a value.
CATEGORY_ ID: This field contains the category ID. You need to insert the category id that you can find in the category tree.
PRODUCT_ ID: This field contains the product ID. When it is not a product, it will be zero value.
CONTENT_ ID: This field contains the content ID. When it is not content, it will be zero value.
LANG: Specify the language of the URL. it needs to be in lower case. (Example: it, es, en, fr, etc). In this case, the field Country will be empty.
CANONICAL: This field should be always 1, which means that this URL is the main one.
DELETED: This field should be 0;
CUSTOM_ URL: This field needs to be empty.
URL_ TYPE: This field needs to be empty
COUNTRY: Specify the targeted country of the URL. It needs to be in lower case. (Example: it, es, en, fr, etc). In this case, the field Lang will be empty.
ALIAS: is the old URL that you want to redirect;
DEFAULT_ ALIAS: This field should be “1”. If the value is “1”, it means that this URL is the default. If the value is “0” means that the URL is not the default. In the case of one or more URLs for the same content, as for example redirections, the right URL needs to be set up as default. Otherwise, it will create a loop and consequently, a 404 Error.
ALIAS_ TYPE: always with value“Normal”.
REDIRECTION: This field can be “0”, or “301”, or “302”. Normally it will be “0”, we will write “301” for permanent redirect and “302” for the temporary redirect.
PERMANENT_ DELETE: This field can be “0” or “1”. Normally, will be “0”, but we will change into “1” when we want to delete the URL.
ROBOTS META TAG: This field can be “0” or “1”. Normally, the value will be “0”. If the value is “1” means that this URL will be “no index, no follow”. After you have filled the template, you need to save the file in a certain way, like in the picture below:
After this step, you should import it in the SEO URLs Platform, by clicking on the orange Import button.
