This feature allows you to write rules that match directly on URLs. You can specify which part of the URL to match, such as: domain, relative URL, alsolute URL, query string, schemeless URL.
This feature allows you to import and export advanced rules to and from URL Adapter Administration Console. You can import hundreds, even thousands of rules using one file.
URL Adapter Works Side by Side with DNN URL Provider
Pages can be accessed with both URLs generated by URL adapter and by DNN URL Provider. Select which one you prefer and optionally enforce that with a 301 or 302 redirect.
Fast and Easy to Setup
The intuitive user interface of URL Adapter allows you to rewrite your URLs to benefit search engine rankings in just few minutes. Our secret sauce is AngularJs and Twitter Bootstrap.
Friendly User Pages
Interested in seeing what /activity/feed?userId=123 is up to? Or you prefer /users/mike instead? This format also applies to subpages such as messages, friends, profile and so on.
Choose a URL for Homepage
The problem is that DNN lets you access the page under root /, under /Default.aspx, or under /Home.aspx. URL Adapter let's you define which on you prefer and optionally enforce that with a 301 or 302 redirect.
URLs With or Without the aspx Extension
Choose whether you want aspx extension in your URLs. Optionally enforce that with a 301 or 302 redirect. Note that extensionless URLs may not work on your IIS, so check before enabling.
301 and 302 Redirects
Search engines specifically states the importance of avoiding duplicate content. A 301 redirect comes in very handy in eliminating this issue.
Option to Force Lowercase
Cenerate the URLs in lowercase. Although IIS is not case sensitive, this is good practice as some search engines may think of pages in various case as being different.
Ignore Accents Option
Convert accents to their Latin equivalent in the URLs. Most browsers support having accents in the URL, but in some countries that is not common practice and the Latin equivalent is preferred.
Replace Space and Punctuation
This feature allows you to choose how to replace punctuation and white space in URLs or just remove it all. Note that is good practice for SEO to have a separator and usually that is a dash -.
Choose Path Separators
Using this option you can choose what separator you want in order to make your URLs SEO-friendly. The common separator is the forward slash /.
URL Adapter integrates with DNN language mechanism. It puts the language code ad the beginning of the friendly URLs similar to how the standard URL provider does.
Disable URL Adapter or even reset all settings to the default, including switching back to the DNN provider via an API URL.
Once with URL Adapter 1.3 we’ve implemented the ability to enable/disable URL Adapter so you can switch to DNN Friendly URL at any time.
Enforce Special Pages
This option allows you to enforce Terms Page, Privacy Page, Login Page, Logout Page, Register Page so there's only one friendly version called for example "/terms" and not "/home?ctl=terms".
URL Adapter integrates with some of the biggest names in the DNN blogs, news and directories modules scene such as: SubBlogNuke, EasyDNNnews, News Article, DNNInfo Classifieds and Property Agent.
