Understanding URL paths

Understanding URL paths

To generate a Web Page, you need to create a node or a panel. When creating either of these, you will often be required to provide human readable URL paths. These should follow some logical hierarchical pattern.

For example, the main “About uOttawa” sub-site contains a panel page entitled “Facts”. The URL path of this page was chosen to be ‘/about/facts’. In most cases, you will want a URL path that is language specific. See “Section 2.1.4. – Updating your URLs” for more tips.

In the case of a node, this can all be done directly from the node-editing page. For panel pages, however, URL aliases will have to be created to provide the proper French paths. The procedure to do this is discussed fully in a later section.
