Nice URLs for articles

Jan 22, 2008

In the last release of Jojo we added the functionality to have your own choice of URLs for the article / blog plugin.

Previously, the URL was based around the ID and the title, and although it was nice and search engine friendly, we were finding they were getting a bit long on some posts.
Nice article URLs

Now there is a new field for article URL. If you like the URLs how they were, simply ignore this new field. Otherwise you can choose any URL you like for the article - typically something shorter and simpler than the article title itself. Jojo URLs should contain no spaces, and words separated by dashes rather than underscores.

If you need to change one of these new URLs after publishing a page, make sure you setup a redirect so you don't lose any traffic (this happens automatically with URLS that include the ID).
