Landing Pages

I use a Joomla! hidden menu to create destinations for landing pages with similar content for special offers and so on. For example a free trial. Quite often these are duplicate content with small variations. This is why are included on hidden menu.

What is the process for creating URLs for these pages ? Is this something we do manually ? Is so what's the quick and easy way to get the Joomla! system url to create the manual sef url ?

In your opinion is using hidden menu the best approach for these types of pages

Thanks
Paul

    Hi

    Using sh404SEF does not change much here. It's more Joomla that needs a menu item associated with your landing pages so as to be able to assign specific modules or template to them.
    You can either use a dedicated menu or just menu items inside of an existing menu - and hide those menu items from display which is a recent Joomla feature.
    Having a dedicated menu makes more sense from an organizational standpoint.

    You don't really need any of that. I'd suggest you assign a menu module to your landing pages menu and just set its access level to super user so that only you can see that menu. Then URLs are created normally and you can copy/paste them into your newsletters or ads for instance.

    Hi

    We do manually curate and clear from private information and share the most useful support tickets for that purpose.

    Using this method you would not need to manipulate the non-sef URL, as long as you can create a menu item. So the workflow would be the same as without sh404SEF really. Besides that, I'm not aware of a way to easily get the non-sef URL, we had such a feature in Joomla 1.x times but it was not continued on current versions.

    Best regards
