Force Miva Merchant requests to a specific store if the store is not specified
Posted by - NA -, Last modified by Jen Ferraz on 30 March 2011 03:14 PM
Some customers have multiple storefronts in their Miva Merchant installations but do not want people being able to request just or merchant.mvc to get a list of the stores.

To default all requests to a specific store in your mall, place the following code in a .htaccess file in the Merchant2 directory:

# The idea of this file is that it will add a store code
# to a request for merchant.mvc if the request is a GET
# request only, and only if there are no other GET variables.
# Turn the rewriting engine on

RewriteEngine on

#RewriteBase /


RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} merchant.mvc

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !.+

RewriteRule (.*) $1?Store_Code=ABCD [QSA]

The ABCD is the store code in that last line, replace that with the code of your storefront that you want to have as the default.
