Use Plus ( - ) signs in the url key instead of hyphens ( - ) for spaces?

I’m converting my old website to Magento and think it is important to recreate the URL’s exactly for various reason. My old site has a URL structure like:

http://domain.com/category/sub+category/product+name.html

But Mangeto has URL’s like:

http://domain.com/category/sub-category/product-name.html

I imagined there would be an option in Magento to do this but I can’t seem to find one! I don’t want to edit the format URL Key function as I don’t feel this is a proper method.

Any help or advice will be appreciated.

Thanks smile

I would highly suggest not going that route - for SEO reasons.

If you are worried about your page strength not passing over to the new urls (because the keys changed), I would suggest creating a temporary htaccess file and do a bunch of redirects for each product (old url -> new url). Once Google picks up on the fowarding, you can remove it and you will be good to go.
