Hello, 
I would like to ask, is there a way of renaming the url to the news/blog platform? 
Am asking this because if I want to run a website for solely blogging purposes using Composr,  it isn't nice for url to my blog post to be/news/view/... Is it possible to change it to something else,  say tld/articles/view/...?

Hi,

See "Using redirects to virtually move a module" and "Example: Moving a module" in Composr Tutorial: Tools for subsites and subcommunities - Composr

This talks about doing it across zones, but you can use the same technique with the name of the page. At least I think you can.


Become a fan of Composr on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter. Follow me on Minds (where I am most active). Support me on Patreon

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

I'd be looking at that and will report on my progress.
Thanks.

I think the mod rewrite thing for human readable URL's can be used as well. We did it on the second install for something similar. I cant remember how we did it now.

I might try again and if it works i will let you know.
