SEO frindly ecommerce site + a link in menu WordPress


I rather not make the site public, but please ask your questions and I will then pick one to fix this, you will then have access to site admin

Hello - the site with some troubles is
1. I need product categories like on this site on top menu on my site its named "wall decals"
2. now you are on wall decals page you see url say /product-page but it has to say "wall-decals"
3. When you look at and have cursor over cartoon on the left you see the url is not seo friendly, also the products on page. If
you look here and have cursor over latest products you have real seo friendly urls, like it should be. check related products at the bottom you
have non seo friendly urls.

Any interest in this little job.

Fireblade comments:

Fireblade comments:

if i just remove the files to plugin folder I get all errors, so guess it was ment that way or I need to change something

Francisco Javier Carazo Gil comments:

I don't know how WP E-Commerce has been running out of plugins dir.

Have you followed this steps? [[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]]
