Friendlier URL Provider

Creative Url rewriting

What is it ?

Free to rewrite

Ever wanted more freedom to rewrite your urls on DNN? Friendlier Url Provider has a strategy per page and module so that you can implement advanced rewriting policies. De-composed into blocks -called rewriting groups - Urls are re-assembled by the module so that every bit of the url can be siginificant - and valuable - to your customers and crawler engines such as Google.

What is so 'friendly' ?

FUP comes with default strategies so that you get immediate rewriting once installed on your portal. It does some basic substitutions b default such as:

  • Tab Id => Tab Name
  • Module Id => Module Title

Added value comes when you start creating your own. Simply edit an existing strategy to get the rewriting behavior you need. For an article, you may want the title and category name included within the Url. For a forum post, the forum name, the thread name and the scope are the valuable information to place within every url of the module. For a custom module where standard rewriting won't work properly, FUP analyzes custom urls to re-compose them intelligenty on the fly.

Make your own experience for 30 days with the trial version. And see how fun & creative URL rewriting can be!
