Category URL's

edited May 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I think this might have been brought up before, but I can't remember the thread or the outcome of it.

Is there any reason why the URL of categories uses the ID rather than the name of it? The discussions uses a mixture of names/numbers.

Is there anyway to change this?

    Probably just an oversight. Should be doable. The name in the discussion url bears no reference to anything i dont think, it's just to look pretty. So yeah should be possible.

    You could use the category ID *and* the category name, just like the discussions use both the discussion ID and the discussion name.

    Alternately, you could probably handcraft mod-rewrite rules that turned the names alone into their respective category IDs, as long as you don't mind these not being automatically updated whenever you add categories.
