Hi,

Is there a way to change/update the URL slug or the pages generated by JD Builder?

Its currently show as: domain.com/index.php/component/jdbuilder/page/20

Can I change/update it?

Thanks

The URL is actually determined by Joomla! directly. What you need to do is add the page to a Joomla menu, and the JD Builder pages will then have a slug that is more SEO friendly.

Just make sure the Joomla Global Configuration settings for Search Engine Friendly URLs and Use URL Rewriting are enabled as well.

Thanks for the reply watched.live. Can you give more details on how to add the page to a Joomla menu?

Also Search Engine Friendly URLs and Use URL Rewriting are set to YES already.

Thank you

Oh I just noticed the the index.php is already gone. Like in the below URL

From: domain.com/index.php/component/jdbuilder/page/20
To: domain.com/component/jdbuilder/page/20

Is there a way to make it: domain.com/page-name-here ?

Yes, just like any page or content in Joomla, you add a menu item into the Main Menu or another menu that is placed at the root level.

When creating the menu item, you set the Menu Item Type as a "JD Builder > Single Page", Choose Page, and Select the page you want, and then up at the top, you specify the Menu Title and Alias. The Alias is then used as a slug.

If you want the page to be at example.com/category-group/page-name-here, you would just set the Parent Item to be the page with the slug of category-group.

Thank you Watched.Live.

Yeah it worked. But I think I need to manually do it to all pages, 100+ lol :D

Just wondering why no moderator/admin reply. I'm glad Watched.Live is here

Thanks.

I’m wondering what is going on with Joomdev support, a lot of unanswered questions on the forum, even via email I’ve no reply, this is starting to become an embarrassing situation, it's a shame, I was used to much better support in the past ... they should revalue their communication with members!
