    Pre-Purchase Questions

    Links will get indexed by Google. Automating the creation of aliases is definitely possible with rules + path aliases + pages rules extension.
  3. Will the new links I make get indexed into google instead of the old urls? I saw this in a review and accomplishing this looks very interesting but sounds complicated: Would there be a way to automate my pages articles to look clean? changing: to If so would this only require Rules & Advanced Path Aliases or Rules, Advanced Path Aliases, & the Pages add-on for Rules?

    sample tutorial

    Creating a path alias, using a forum as an example... Source url: Target url: 1. Go to the ACP -> System -> URL PATHS -> Manage Paths 2. Click the button to "Create New Alias" 3. Type in "testforum" into the Path field 4. Paste the url to the source page in the Mapped To field 5. If you want the source url to redirect to the target url when visited, choose the "Canonical" option. 6. Click Save.

    aliases don't work with Menu Manager?

    Yeah, I've had that same problem too. I had to put the IPS standard url in for custom menu links.
  6. I've tried creating a URL alias to one of my Calendars. The link works fine, but when I try to install it in my Menu Manager in a drop-down menu, the alias link doesnt' appear when you put the mouse over the menu option - it's the old IPS link, and when I click the menu link I get a "not found" error. It seems as if the Menu Manager doesn't accept aliases...?

    feature request: folders/categories for better organisation

    Thats a good idea. Thanks for the suggestion.
  8. Hi @Kevin Carwile, I was thinking that allowing groups of aliases for a single site area (e.g. a Club) to be stored in categories/"folders" would make things a lot easier to deal with organisationally. If one has a fully featured Club, that's at least 7 or 8 aliases. Instead of having pages-long alias listings, being able to organise them by folder or category on a per-CLub (or per-whatever) basis would make things easier to manage. This way, if one deleted a Club one could simply delete its Alias category to delete all its aliases in one fell swoop instead of deleting them individually.

    sample tutorial

    I was wondering if it might be possible at some point for you to furnish a sample tutorial on how to create a simple, straightforward alias for those of us unfamiliar with the process?

    &bank=0 for the Path Aliases

    That's because the bank=0 is the same as having no bank parameter at all and the resulting page is the same, so the url is standardized.

    &bank=0 for the Path Aliases

    Hi @Kevin Carwile, how about this problem? It seems, you've missed my report about the bug described in the first post...
  12. Hi Kevin, When trying to add a new path alias mapping to this page https:// /index.php?app=points&module=points&controller=dashboard&do=balanceDashboard&curr=3&bank=0 (without spaces of course), the destination to a new alias will be saved without "&bank=0" on the end of the link! In case the "&bank=" is not zero, but 1,2,3 or any other numbers, the url works fine, but not with 0! Please help to check it. Here is a picture for quick understanding: And it doesn't matter, whether I am using the canonical way or not. By the way, your Points Economy application seems to have a similar problem with the Meta Tags, like I have described earlier before in this topic. Once, the home page "" has a manually added meta tag (for example, "MY BEST FORUM"), so ANY page related to the Points economy will have the same meta tag ("MY BEST FORUM") rather than the correct one like "Spending Account - Guru Mantra - IPS Guru" or "My Economy Dashboard - IPS Guru" or even "Economies - IPS Guru" => ALL these title tags will be changed to "MY BEST FORUM" once you have added this title tag to your main page "". Please check it as well. (this bug is actually the reason, why I'm trying to add my own path aliases to any page of your Points Economy application!)
