Correct url paths for category items in a store.

Hi (I have asked this question twice in the wrong places, so I hope someone here can advise me):

I am a developer who has built several ebay stores for various clients (not using the API, just custom HTML).

I have been struggling with one store to try and preserve categories of items they previously had.

Initially the original category was

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/clickgolf/Golf-Bags-/_i.html?_fsub=3831076010

I found that the last parameter of the url was obsolete so I truncated it to this:

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/clickgolf/Golf-Bags-/

And for a while that worked, but the client is now telling me that no results are being pulled through.

Funnily enough the longer url works in the sense that it displays a message saying 0 items for Golf Bags, and the second shorter url does not filter results, but does return all the items from the shop.

So what is the correct syntax for these categories? I have tried a few variations but with no luck.

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/clickgolf/Golf-Bags-
http://stores.ebay.co.uk/clickgolf/Golf-Bags
http://stores.ebay.co.uk/clickgolf/Golf%20Bags
http://stores.ebay.co.uk/clickgolf/Golf-Bags/_i.html?_fsub=3831076010

Also will these categories work in the future, as it's invasive to have to keep updating these.

Thanks in advance.
Luke

I've paid a lot of attention to eBay URL syntax over the years, but unfortunately I've never had the need to acquaint myself with Store URLs, so I'm no help here, sorry. Hopefully someone else can weigh in with some wisdom.
