SEO, EASY PRODUCT EDIT, Category Tree
We really need a SEO addon by default with options like these
Product SEO URL format: Category-name/sub-category-name/product-name
Category SEO URL format: Parent-Category/Category/page2/
Page SEO URL format: parentpage/page/
Other SEO URL format: /item
Use single URL for all languages: checkbox
We should be able to easily edit product name, price, list price, and quantity right from product page on admin panel instead of going through each product to edit those things.
Instead of auto complete category name we should have the actual list of all categories presented to us instead of autocomplete.
I've done something that might be useful to accomplish a multilanguage seo url. Maybe someone could reuse one of the implementations. Some of the most voted requests are related to seo urls management.
Here is the discussion with links to git repo: https://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=160714

As an addition to the easier product editing i would like to see enable/disable product from the product list.
And when duplicating a product it disables it so you have to be sure to set it enabled before saving or go back in for the edit.
Please vote for mine as well (if you agree obviously) - link is:
Having an easy way to add and edit products is long long overdue. It's become so frustrating for me that I am considering changing to another cart

1) SEO: Things become tricky with this.. if you have a product in multiple categories you are splitting up it's "seo juice". Personally I canonicalise everything as [site url]/productA that way [site_url]/cat1/productA and [site_url]/cat2/productA (product A being the same item) would share their SEO value. Unfortunately it does mean that cat1 and cat2 are not really applicable for the URL's SEO.
3) If I ever mod this for a site the only thing I do is add an additional wildcard to the start of the search string. So that the auto-complete can find "a4 ring binder" if I were to type "binder".
