How to set up Search Engine Friendly URLs in PrestaShop 1.5

To enable the Friendly URL option in PrestaShop 1.5:

  1. Log into your PrestaShop 1.5 dashboard.

  3. This takes you over to the Preferences : SEO & URLs screen. Locate the Friendly URL setting and click the Yes radio button to enable it.
  4. Once set, click on the Save button on the top of the screen.

You have now successfully enabled the Friendly URL setting in PrestaShop 1.5

  1. Hello, I’m am a developer and I found your article quite impressive. But I have recently come across a site that offers a SEO Optimizer module which automatically converts the default URLs into the SEO-friendly URLs without much efforts. I have tested the available demo of this module at and I think you all should give it a try too. I want to know from you what you think about this module

  2. Hi, I am using PrestaShop the latest version, and I have tried the way you have explained here. but it exactly don’t solved the issue. my requirement is to remove the ids from the urls. I have tested the demo of this module which exaclty removed the ids, I want to know from you that is there way to remove these IDs from backend settings without using this module? 

    1. You would need to use that module. PrestaShop was designed to utilize the id in the URL, so there is no default way to remove it from the URL.
