Enabling Search Engine Friendly URLs (Apache Web Server)
Rename htaccess.txt from the distribution to .htaccess after making any changes to RewriteBase at line 5 as required if your Price Tapestry installation is in a sub-directory of your website, for example:
To enable, edit config.php and change line 8 as follows:
$config_useRewrite = TRUE;
The distribution contains a sample robots.txt file as robots.txt.dist. Review the file and make any changes as required and rename to robots.txt. The sample file discourages indexing the category and brand A-Z pages in favour of the Merchant A-Z which is guaranteed to link to all product pages on your site.
If you have a Google Webmaster Tools account you can submit the full URL to the sitemap.php script in your Price Tapestry installation. The script returns a sitemap index linking to individual sitemaps per feed. A sitemap entry may also be added to robots.txt, if using, for example:
<li><a href='/example.php'>Example Page</a></li>
