X-Cart Friendly Urls Not So Friendly
I got a chuckle today when working with X-cart's friendly urls feature. Apparently the folks at x-cart think a friendly url is just a url without a query string. However they seem to leave out the fact that the store actually has any kind of structure, so all of your urls will be at the first level no matter where they are in the categorization. For instance, if you have a product in Widgets > Super Widgets > Awesome Widget 25, the url will not be /widgets/super-widgets/awesome-widget-25, it will just be /awesome-widget-25. So forget about siloing your content in xcart. I'm apparently too used to MODx and WordPress who got this right, IMO.
