How to find the url for each article/page

Postby zonkd2 » Fri Jan 06, 2012 10:27 pm

The template doesn't allow for the normal front page lead-ins. I have to use html links to go from the opening paragraph on the front page.

How then do we know the name of pages to give the address for the page? (I have configured for SEF links.)

Say the article is 'id=12' and is called 'How to do something' and the section/category is 'special'. Then I would expect the url to the article to be

http://www.mysite.com/special/12-how-to-do-someting.html

But that doesn't work, and variations don't work.

I thought Ercan Özkaya's plugin Title Manager might help, but it seems the server uses php4 and Ercan's plugin needs php5.2+

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I tried to use the main menu to find the urls for the pages. But the addresses it uses aren't recognised and only bring up error messages

Many thanks, Atais, but I think the actual problem is that the installation must have become corrupted so I will reinstall. I'll keep that valuable tip, though, and many thanks for it.

You don't have to remember it. when you view the article, just copy the rest behind the index.php of your site.

This method works, except that there is a heading "Articles" above the article title.

How do you get to the page without that annoying heading?

Thanks,
Railer
