RealUrl provides a possibility to create more readable URLs than the default ones, including the category or product name. When installing the Aimeos TYPO3 extension, RealUrl is among the suggested extensions that you should also install.
You need to have the RealUrl auto-configuration feature enabled to get pretty Aimeos URLs out of the box. If you use your own RealUrl config file, you have to add the rules to your file yourself. In this case use the standard rules as reference which are located in
The most common problem is that you install RealUrl after the Aimeos extension and then, the default RealUrl configuration from Aimeos isn't used and no readable URLs are generated. Make sure that you install RealUrl before installing the Aimeos TYPO3 extension or de-install and re-install the Aimeos TYPO3 extension after you've installed RealUrl. Otherwise, there will be no hint what's wrong und you may be looking at the problem for hours!

You can create your own static RealURL configuration in the file typo3conf/realurl.conf.php.
