Who's started playing with MM9, and how's it going so far? I haven't had a chance to look at it yet.

Looking for a resource to append ?Category_code=XXX to end of friendly URL so it passes the code. This is for breadcrumb functionality.

Current short links in format of: http://www.domain.com/PROD/1234

It sounds like you are using the toolkit breadcrumbs code. We would highly recommend that you switch to using our new built in Smart Breadcrumbs feature as it does not force you to pass the category code through the URL in order for it to work.
 
Passing the category code through the URL can be done however if you still want to move forward with that. Basically in the .htaccess file there are some rewrite rules that allow the Miva Merchant short links to function. In these rewrite rules you need to be sure you have the [QSA] flag in the rule in order for the short links to properly pass a query string. Here is an example rule with QSA included:
 
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-s
RewriteRule ^product/([^/]+)/([^/.]+).html$ /mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Category_code=$1&Product_code=$2 [L,NC,QSA]
 
From there you would just have to edit your links in your template code to include the ?Category_Code=&mvt:global:Category_Code; in your links.
 
At the end though, Smart Breadcrumbs would be your best solution. One thing to note though is that Smart Breadcrumbs only works on CSSUI stores. More information on the Smart Breadcrumbs can be found here:
http://www.mivamerchant.com/pr8-4-features#bcrumbs  
And the instructions for installation can be found on our forum at:

Does your company have your brand name secured on Twitter?  Did you have to change it because it was already taken?

Miva Ranked 15th for Top San Diego Workplaces

Last week we were proud to share that the +The San Diego Union-Tribune, LLC nominated us as one of the top places to work in all of beautiful #sandiego  

And now, based on the positive employee feedback from our +Miva, Inc family, we were honored with an award at the Union Tribune's Top Workplaces Honors Ceremony last week. As the Union Tribune announced the ranking of 40 Top Workplaces in San Diego, we were thrilled to be granted #15 on the list.

As our president +Rick Wilson said:

"After reflecting on how we got here, it's safe to say that our employees are the heart of Miva."

We are absolutely honored and are looking forward to an even better and brighter future helping the #smallbusiness  community achieve its #ecommerce  goals.
