How to link a rewritten URL to a menu element?


 Creation

URL rewriting is a method for redefining dynamic website page addresses (often called URLs) to make them more understandable for humans and convey indexable information to search engines.
In e-commerce websites, catalogue pages have complicated URLs, usually containing a question mark, ampersands, equals signs, names of variables and values.
They look something like this:

http://www.MyDomain.com/Catalog.asp?ViewID=2&ProductID=7429&CatID=47
 
 How does it work?

Practical Application: We'll create a rewritten URL: http://www.MyDomain.com/electronics.htm

That points to a the Electronics category of your shop and is applied to the Electronics Horizontal menu element.

To create a rewritten URL and set its navigation behaviour, open the [Marketing \ URL Rewriting] menu and click the [Add] button. In the page that opens, define the rewritten name, (must end in .htm) and define the navigation behaviour that will be associated to this URL.

Now, to apply the rewritten URL to a menu element, open the [Site \ Menus \ Horizontal Menu].

Click the menu element you wish to edit and select the navigation behaviour three dots.


Click to zoom

Then in the popup that appears, select URL Rewriting and then the link you have just created.

Click to zoom

Click OK and then [Save] the changes you have made.

Click to zoom

You will then be able to see the updated link on your site with the rewritten URL.
