How to create the item canonical url ?

The system will take the item name to standardize it (no space, no accent, no special characters and no uppercase letter ).

Example: Nom de l’article : Riva Super Ariston Kiade Model Boat - Scale 1/10
Canonical URL: http://www.oxashop.co.uk/riva-super-ariston-kiade-model-boat-scale-1-10-c2x3139077

The variable is placed at the URL end (c2x3139077) and can not be deleted or modified. This is essential for a smooth process.
