In the next Sitefinity Version we will implement a the possibility to set a Custom URL for a page which is not dependent on the Site Structure. Description of the feature is below. Any questions or comments are welcome.
As a user working with pages deep into the hierarchy, I want to be able to change the default URL of the page to a custom url structure, so that it doesn’t depend on the hierarchy in the sitemap.
I have the following page hierarchy:
Automatically, the default url of page 2 is: ~/page1/page2/ and the default url of page 3 is: ~/page1/page2/page3
I want to be able to make the default ULR of page 2: “ ~/XYZ/page23 ”
In this case:
• changes to the URL of page1 no longer affect the URL of page2, and
• the automatic URL of page 3 becomes: ~/XYZ/page23/page3”
When I change the default URL of a page to be custom, and that URL coincides with another one in the site map, I should see a warning, and the change should not be applied.
