Re: [website] Rewriting url /page/page-name to url / page-nameby
Agreed, a method of adding new pages from the frontend that would create routes automatically would be nice
That way you can setup as many as you'd like, set the url yourself and all with a few clicks

Thanks Paul that's a good point!But if you need to rewrite each single template this could be a big job in big sites, so a proper automated solution would probably the better way.Not sure why the website module has at all this /page/ element in there - as it is IMHO worthless and more harming than making it useful.Ok there are some URLs which can't be used, but this is in most CMS like that. But the front-end should start by default without any extra additional path segment like it is the case in odoo.On Mon, Nov 23, 2015 at 7:22 PM, Paul Catinean <email@example.com> wrote:Hello,Yes the route will take www.site.com/page-name and render the template you enter thereIt's also a good solution since if you add some complexity to the page and need custom methods etc you need to update the qwebcontext and end up making a controller anyhowSo you could just as well do it from the start and make a route for each pageRegards,PaulHi Paulyou mean your solution would be giving out a seo friendly path without website_seo module right?ThanksIt is as simple as creating a controller in a custom module and adding routes for the pages, e.g:from openerp import httpclass CustomModule(http.Controller):@http.route('/page-name', auth='public', website=True)def page(self, **kw):return request.render('external_id.of_template_you_want_rendered')Hi Oleg thanks a lot for that link and explanations. I will have a look at it.Have you tried it also in multilingual sites with language switcher?have a nice dayCoriCori,Just to confirm what Luke is saying. We are using this website_seo module in real production system for customer that migrated from wordpress.So far he is satisfied with functionality.We created our fork for it just to have some small changes https://github.com/xpansa/website-1Also you need to understand that Odoo CMS is quite young and for customers who used wordpress previously and would like migrate to Odoo we always saying - that "you shouldn't expect that Odoo based system will be copy of wordpress". And Odoo has many other strong sides. That saves a lot of time going forward for discussions like - "where is this feature or where is that feature".///
Technical Director, XPANSA Group | ERP, BI, E-commerce, Data Mining and DMS consultingThanks LukeYou mean the website_seo part I guessProvide the base for an improved SEO handling
This module adds a new seo_url field to the website.seo.metadata model. It means all models which inherit website.seo.metadata will have the new seo_url field. In general it affects website modules like website_blog, website_forum, website_hr_recruitment etc. The module itself adds no SEO handling. It is done in additional modules like website_seo_blog.We will check it out. It is sad that odoo is not doing it properly at first place as it advertises itself as a great tool for seo, but good urls are quite important! Especially in multilingual websites.ThanksCoriHiis it possible to rewrite the URL of pages build by the odoo 9 website builderNew pages get url /page/page-name but page is always and stays always page (in English which isn't useful at all.)What would be the best way to achieve seo friendly urls likeurl /page-name/subpage-name/ ....
- i.e. can odoo do it by itself without that /page/ path element, can /page/page-name be mapped to /page-name without the need to define a web controller which renders that page like this.
- i.e. has someone experience with using mod_rewrite for Apache2.4. to achieve this kind of urls if Odoo it self can't manage it.or isn't that possible at all with Odoo.Thanks Cori
