Default Category for Products with Redirect Default Category for Products with Redirect

This extension makes your webshop more SEO friendly. In opencart, by default, you can reach a product directly.This means you don't have to specify the category path in the url to view a product, this is not really good in SEO. With this extension you can define a default or main category to your products, and it will redirect to the product with category path. There are 3 types of redirect: Always, Selective and No Path redirect. When you select Always redirect, the extension will always redirect to the default category. When Selective redirect is active, the mod will check the current category in the path, and if none of the current categories are connected to the product, it will redirect to the default category. The No Path redirect method will redirect only if no category path specified in the url. The extension comes with a module set up page and also support multi store systems.
