I have added some products to my store manually and the urls are working great as below

http://www.mydomain.com/waterproof-rabbit-vibrators/femme-fatale-flexi-rabbit.html/

I then exported the store and added the rest of my products to the CSV file following the format of the exported products.

For some reason, despite the contents of the CSV file products being exactly the same for all products, maunailly added or imported, the URL for the imported products are like this

http://www.mydomain.com/catalog/product/view/id/194/s/waterproof-jack-rabbit-with-5-rows-of-beads-purple-rabbit-vibrator/category/45/

There is no difference that I can see when exporting all products between the correct url and the wrong one ?

any suggestions anyone? I really want ot sort this out before point google at it!!

I had a look around in the database, and it seems to me that the new URL’s are not in the core_url_rewrite table, but the manually added products are?

Anyone care to comment, or suggest a fix?

Ignore my last post, was looking in the wrong DB :-(

I resolved this in the end by doing a re-install. However, the problem WASN’T the database as I only re-installed the files, then connected to the DB and everything worked fine. Just wish I know how I broke it..............
