    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: http://www.mysite.com/articles.html/cat4/Article-Title/ to http://www.mysite.com/Article-Title/ 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: https://ipsguru.net/forums/forum/2-open-forum Target url: https://ipsguru.net/testforum 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:// myforum.ru /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 "ipsguru.net/forums" 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 "ipsguru.net/forums". 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!)

    Meta tags for path aliases

    long time ago But that time I was just a "lite"-user of your application, and I didn't report that. But since the last Big Sale I'm the "full"-user, so it's time to report this as well

    Meta tags for path aliases

    Never even knew that feature was there. How long has that been around? Anyway, here is the fix: ./applications/pathalias/hooks/ipsHttpUrlFriendly.php ipsHttpUrlFriendly.php

    Meta tags for path aliases

    It can be found on the Admin Control Panel in the section "Site Promotion" > "Search Engine Optimization" > "Meta tags" ( test.ru/admin/?adsess=n3b50nb6uq1uomnfo919nhpd04&app=core&module=promotion&controller=seo&tab=metatags ) You can "Launch Live Meta Tag Editor" there, for easy changing. Once open, try to add something to the field called "Page Title" (for the page ipsguru.net/forums).

    Meta tags for path aliases

    So how is it that you are "manually changing the title tag"? I've never seen that feature.

    Meta tags for path aliases

    correct. I explain on an example taken from your community: you have a "personal" link - ipsguru.net/kevin. It has a correct meta title tag "Kevin Carwile - IPS Guru." The tag for the forum page ipsguru.net/forums is a standard one also: "Forums - IPS Guru" . Then, how to explain the situation, when we manually (in the ACP) change the tag for ipsguru.net/forums from "Forums - IPS Guru" to "Best Forums", and the page's tag for ipsguru.net/kevin will become "Best Forums" as well! And in the same time, the "normal" profile links for other user profiles like mine (ipsguru.net/profile/30-alexis) will continue having their correct tags ("username - IPS Guru"). Why? This happens with the canonical path aliases only

    Meta tags for path aliases

    When you say meta tag, do you mean title tag? And path alias app doesnt have anything to do with tags on pages. It either redirects a url to another one, or makes an existing page available on a new url. It doesnt create new pages or insert tags or even touch the html output.
  19. Hi Kevin, There is an issue I've found while testing the application Advanced path aliases which I've bought during the Big Sale. When our board main (home) page has its own Meta Tag, added manually in the Search Engine Optimization section of the ACP, so in this situation all of the path aliases will have the same Meta tag, which the home page has! Without the manually added Meta Tag for the home page, all the path aliases have their correct meta tag names, which they become automatically. The worst thing here is, that if I'm adding to my path alias its own meta tag manually, it doesn't overwrite the Home page meta tag and it still continues showing the Home page meta tag Example for better understanding: The home page https://www.mydomain.ru/forum/ has it's own meta tag (instead of the automatically one: "Forums - Invision Community") called "My best board on the world". The path alias urls https://www.mydomain.ru/forum/alexis or https://www.mydomain.ru/forum/topic/best will have the same meta tag "My best board on the world". But their meta tags should be as follows: "alexis - Invision Community" and "best - A test forum - Invision Community". And it seems to be not possible to change them in the Search Engine Optimization section The problem has an impact only on path aliases urls. ps.>If I remember correctly, this meta tags issue I've noticed right after updating my board to from IPS 4.1.13 to IPS 4.1.14.2 ! Now I'm on the 4.2.6 , and the issue still exists...

    dynamic Furls

    Since Advanced Path Aliases can be controlled with rules, this is possible. But there are many considerations that need to be made when setting something like that up. In other words, there is not a simple way to do it.

    dynamic Furls

    Hello I purchased the full version of APA and I'm hoping that it can be used in conjunction with the Rules app to dynamically rewrite URLs. For example, IPS 4.2.5 will not allow the removal of '/forums/' from this URL: mysite.com/forums/topic/123-mytopic/ I need it to look like this: mysite.com/topic/123-mytopic/ Can you tell me if this is possible to do site-wide with a variable for [topicID], and if so, how I might approach it? mysite.com/forums/topic/[topicID]/ > mysite.com/topic/[topicID]/ Thanks
