How to change the url?

Is it possible to change instead of example.com/extrapagea > example.com/mypage

If it is how is it done?

Thanks!

    I know some people will provide you shortcuts that will no longer relate the names to the plugin.

    So to avoid this, perhaps.

    THE BEST WAY. without shortcuts.

    Just clone the plugin and change every reference of extrapage to mypage and ExtraPage to MyPage, in all the entire plugin files and names of files and folders. Paying close attention to uppper and lower case.

    changing just the method name to an unrelated name withithout changing the references is not a great idea, as far as naming conventions.

    thank you for using this plugin and thanks for saying thank you.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    Alternative...  smattered throughout default.php
    
    with shortcuts instead  replacing extrapageA with mypage  and adjusting routing.
    
    $Sender->Menu->AddLink(T('Extra Page A'), T('ExtraPage A'), 'mypage');
    
     public function VanillaController_MyPage_Create($Sender) {
    
     $matchroute = '^mypage(/.*)?$';   
                 $target = 'vanilla/MyPage$1';
    
      $matchroute = '^mypage(/.*)?$';   
                   Gdn::Router()-> DeleteRoute($matchroute);

    I'm not doing this right, for sure. Could you be more explicit? Let's say I want to change the url from /extrapagea to /resources.

    I've tried to change every reference of 'extrapagea' to 'resources' but for some reason it didn't work.

    Thanks!

    Edit: Hmm.. I think I need to actually change 'extrapage' to 'resources' not 'extrapagea', I will try that.

    Look in your dashboard under "Routes". I guess the plugin sets the custom route during the setup process and if you change it later in the code it will have no effect.

    Thanks, but I didn't manage to do it. If anyone could assist me, I would appreciate it.

    Exactly as R_J said.

    yes that is why I recommend disabling plugins before you change them or upgrade them.
    not taking heed to this, can lead to unintended consequences. especially if you are changes to anything related to Setup, Structure, Disable, routing are made.

    @r0obert said:
    . If anyone could assist me, I would appreciate it.

    • Yes.
    • disable the plugin
    • delete all the old routes relating to the plugin in your dashboard.
    • read the first comment and make your changes, or do the clone.
    • and enable the plugin.

    its really quite simple, you should be able to do that with your skillset.

    if you clone the plugin
    - rename everything folders. files, and any instance of the ExtraPage or extrapage in each and every file to whatever the heck you want.

    make sure you match all cases upper and lower case exactly.

    ExtraPage  - ROobertPage
    extrapage -  roobertpage
    

    if you are capable of changing all names correctly - you will have what you want done.

    if you can't figure it out. send me a donation and I will do the renaming for you exactly as I specified you should do via my text editor search and replace function.

    As much as I like to solve issues, solving esoteric, specific issues on plugins that i wrote, there comes a time when I run out of FREE time, especially for trivial cosmetic url issues.

    @peregrine I managed to get as close as "mywebsite.com/R0oberta" but I cannot figure out how to get rid of the "a" and get /R0obert.

    I cloned plugin, searched and replaced:

    ExtraPage -> R0obert
    extrapage -> r0obert

    in:

    a) plugin folder name from ExtraPage -> R0obert
    b) default.php
    c) all files inside /views folder

    Edit: Didn't see this:

    ..sorry I will figure it out myself. Thanks for your support, I will definitely make a donation for your efforts.

    shouldn't be too difficult for you based on what you just said:

    • change the file in views from R0oberta to r0obert

    • search for R0oberta and replace with R0obert

    • search for r0oberta and replace with r0obert

    • search for R0obertA and replace with R0obert

    • search for r0obertA and replace with r0obert

    I wanna do this too, but I put Van2Shout on extrapage page, manually added it to header, but have url in browser /discussions/extrapagea when shoutbox is opened is very weird and SEO unfriendly...

    there have been at least 3 if not me ways to add a shoutbox to a separate page to meet your shoutbox needs.
    if this plugin is too seo unfriendly for you, I recommend you try a different way.

    you can use the other mod under the shoutbox plugin comments or the other option. As far as SEO unfriendly, personally, I couldn't give a rip.

    at least you liked the peregrine reactions plugin enough to use it. thanks for using that one. :)

    tell me your specs, and what it needs to be seo friedly, and your budget , if the other mods don't work for you, and I will gladly customize a free plugin to suit your needs depending on whether your budget can meet my needs to make those changes.

    Perhaps, with six months or a year's time (or less) of studying vanilla, you will be able produce add-ons as they should be done, and you won't have the need to carp about SEO unfriendly plugins anymore.

    Hmm I learned C# perfectly in 3 months, VB6 in 2 months and VB.NET iN 1 month (ofc after switching from VB6). I am sure that I will get used to Vanilla in less that 3 weeks ;)

    great looking forward to your new well constructed plugins.

    it took me ZERO years to learn C#, VB6 and VB.NET. :) since I never learned them.

    I started learning C/C++ 14 years ago and I still learn new things about it everyday. I started with Garden 2 years ago, and am consistently impressed with the depth and breadth of the framework. Vanilla is nice too ;).

    Lol. You aren't missing a whole lot with VB and VB.NET. They should never be used outside of microsoft office products, imo.

    C# is pretty decent, since Mono is a thing these days.

    hg, I forgot to mention I leaned BASIC-PLUS , haven't had the need for it lately though. :) as well as the BASIC when they came out with the new operating systems in MS-DOS 1.1 and CP/M ( 2.9 months to learn print "hello world")

    My first ever experience with programming was BASIC on an Apple IIe. That thing was old even when I was using it in kindergarten. No text editor and once you hit enter, there was no editing that line anymore. I distinctly remember coming up with a ROT13 program to make "secret" messages.

    C++ is something different and imo a lot harder to master. C# is great like you said becouse of Mono. I am making games using SFML.NET multimedia library port (to what I am also contributing) so my thingies are always cross-platform ;)
