Hi,
as mentioned in the subject, Can the module sh404SEF remove the category from the URL without removing the category itself or change structure?

We want to shorten the url, but keep the structure regarding categories for the pages.
Means we only want to remove the category from 4/5 links for one category.

Ist this possible with this module?



Thanks for a qzick feedback, we are in hurry :-)

Hi

Not sure what you mean by that. Having category or not is what we refer to as URL structure. And I'm not sure I understand "remove the category from the URL without removing the category"


We want to shorten the url, but keep the structure regarding categories for the pages.

You can always manually change the URL for any link as described in the documentation on this page.

What i meant is we have an url like this:

example.org/category-1/category-2/item-name.html



And we want now to remove the category from the url only - the category structure (menu etc.) itself should be still their.
Means
The only change will be the url will become:
example.org/item-name.html


Is this possible?

In https://weeblr.com/documentation/products.sh404sef/4/going-further/sef-urls/customize-sef-url.html i do not see if I can just change the URL of the item, or the whole url of the menu entry the item is linked to.

Thanks for your response !!!

Hi

the whole url of the menu entry the item is linked to.

sh404SEF does not use menu items at all to build URLs so how that category or article is linked from does not matter: the URL will always be the same, so Yes, you do not have to touch your menus to achieved what you want.

As for the URL structure, due to the fact we do not use menu, it's fully configurable. Here is a partial vue of the configuration options:
