  • 301 Redirects from Prostores

    Hello: I am just about ready to switch from Prostores to here! It is so exciting! But can anybody tell me/help me how to get my 301 redirects done? Is is true that I have to go one page at a time?

    Thanks,
    Uta

    Hey there, Littledogfashion

    Welcome to 3dcart!

    We recently made a change to our service where - instead of creating your redirects one at a time - you can now export/import them via a simple CSV file.

    We have the following KB article that should point you in the right direction. :D

    https://support.3dcart.com/index.php...barticleid=498

    Again, welcome to 3dcart!

      301 Prostores redirects

      Hello!

      Thanks for your response. I saw that article and created a few pages, just so that I could see what goes where. But don't I still have to go line by line?

      What I mean is: I find one page on Prostores, copy and paste it into the spreadsheet and find the corresponding page on my 3dcart store. After every product is listed in that way, I can import them. Is that correct?

      thanks again. I am awfully glad to be here.

      Uta:D

        Hi,
        I redirected as follows:
        servlet/StoreFront to home.asp
        servlet/the-XX/item-title-from-prostores/Detail to product.asp?itemid=xx
        (where XX or xx are the actual item numbers and the product title as shown from the prostores links)

        I used the excel sheets to match the items up between prostores and 3Dcart and used the import tool.

        It has been few weeks and it seems they are directing properly.

        :)

          301 redirects from Prostores

          Hello again Elegant Weddings!

          I am using an excel spreadsheet too. Right now I use the address as given by Prostores as the old url and the new one over here as the new url.

          Here is what that looks like:

          Old url: Blue Prince Doggie Robe


          New url: Pink princess Royalty Pet Robe


          Do you think this will work?

          Thanks,
          Uta

            Uta,
            Don't close the PS store until you contact me. Your going to need PS up to do a few things before you do this. PM me and I'll walk you through it. I have a file I can also send you showing you what the links are going to look like and what to change from some of the files.

                Using
                URL : servlet/the-450/Blue-Prince-Doggie-Robe/Detail
                Mapped URL: Royalty-Pet-Robe_p_871.html
                should work after you transfer the domain to 3D. With littledogfashion.3dcartstores.com will not work as the domain is still 3dcartstores.com


                Also, @InsnWizard is correct, there is a lot to be done. Until the new store is completely transferred over do not close PS.

                  Hey Elegant, hows things? Uta will be ok. I did some work for her before. I'm just going to do her 301's for her if she wants me to. I've been beating up on excel for years.

                  The learning curve is pretty big from PS to here.

                      Hey InsnWizard good to see the familiar names here at 3D. it is nice to see everyone helping each other!!

                      It took me several weeks to get my two stores transferred over. I did it pretty much manipulating excel sheets. I am happy with 3D so far; they have great features, tech support and customer service all in-house (not outsourced). Now if only I can get the bandwidth usage from skyrocketing.... (i know another topic another thread....)

                      :)

                        I haven't seen a bandwidth issue with my store and I have some pretty good size pictures.

                          Too many hits from bots(hackers) that add items to cart and abandon them. Most IP addresses are from Russia and china, I add them to ban list daily. Hopefully I will get rid of them all. Never had this problem with PS though, it is only after I transferred to 3D.

                              Wow David, hats off to you!! Not many people nowadays will reach out and help someone to that extent. I say not many but to be honest, I have seen a TON of extra help from lots of 3DCart users on this forum, so I guess I'm "sorta" surprised! This is (in my opinion) the type of forum that makes the cart transition so much easier.
