Has anyone with a v7 install and the SEO pack experienced this?

My thinking was to set up discontinued product as hidden (so they no longer show up in category browsing etc...but the pages would still be there for incoming links from search engines etc. I remember someone was doing this pre SEO pack and they even had a nice custom template without the add to cart buttons etc.

What I am seeing now is that any product set to hidden is producing a 404 error. Doesn't matter if I use the friendly URL or if I plug in shopexd.asp?catlogid=1234.

I think the above URL is incorrect. The correct one should be like this:


When I tested this in my store, I was redirected to the category page.

Hope this helps!
