Can somebody tell me where I can find the Short URL in the Database? I have a page with a short name and it is sending me to a different page address. Is it possible to have duplicate Short URLs?
public string GetSimpleAddress(PageData page)
//Fetch the simple address
url = (string)page.Property["PageExternalURL"].Value;
url = string.Empty;
//Return the regular URL if no simple address was found
return (url != string.Empty ? url : page.LinkURL);
You can normally only have a single simple url (if you are not using SEO Manager).Think about canonical links for SEO while you are at it...
Do you know if it is possible to query the database to see if there are duplicate Simple Urls?
Don't think the API will allow multiple simple urls to the same so shouldn't happen. Are you sure you don't have a shortcut set on the page? You can set those in edit mode that will cause a redirect to another page...
I have set this up in the Admin section of the page - under the Simple URL. But when I enter the simple url it takes me to another page that doesnt exist. I am basically trying to help our client find the issue and it would be handy to query the database via SQL to see if there are duplicates.
tblContentLanguage -column ExternalUrl? My memory is a bit fuzzy on that one...
A bit late to the party here but don't forget that report center has a "Simple addresses" report that can be used to find simple addresses for all pages.
Right...report center...always forget that one hehe :)
