Recent Change - Simplified Urls

Recommended Posts

Another recent addition among the updated features is the ability to add a simplified url to your category.

 

Visit your category page and click "edit category". Fill in the field below the title with a simplified name (no spaces, underscores are ok) and you can visit the category page like this:

 

http://www.Waymarking.com/cat/ghost_signs

 

Choose wisely, as it cannot be changed after submitting. B)

why is this our 'ability'?

should this not be an automatic Groundspeak process?

once the group is created and becomes popular--to some sort of standard--should this not be done by TPTB? and relegating it to the category name would be a good thing.....

I agree. It should be done automatically in my opinion.

I disagree. Sometimes the category name doesn't really make a great URL.

 

Thinking of something like "Kentucky Historic Markers", wouldn't it be nicer to give it a short URL of KYHist, rather than having to call the URL "KentuckyHistoricMarkers" or "Kentucky_Historic_Markers".

 

If a category is something you're really interested in, then you could easily get to know the simplified URL for it.
