Clean urls direct visitors to a shortened version of the web address (url) for your site. Clean urls help make web addresses "human readable" and improve search engine optimization (SEO) by indicating to the search engine that the page content at a web address is the same as the terms searched. This is great for public-facing websites, splash pages and any other site that you would like visitors to access easily, remember and link to.
Clean vs. Dirty
Creating clean urls
To create clean urls, go to Develop > Add Module > Clean URL Mapper. Once your clean url table is created, navigate to Design > Clean URL Map. Enter the 'clean url' that you would like users to type in and the 'dirty url' that is used to access the item directly.Entering the clean and dirty urls
Click the add new icon
. You will see two fields "dirty url" and "clean url".Dirty Url
In the dirty url field, enter the part of the address of the table/id/view, starting at db.aspx like so: db.aspx?t=OscarsTable&id=1&vid=1. It is important to enter only the end of your url, starting at db.aspx. Do not enter the "http://oscars.qrimp.com/" or a backslash (/). Clean Url
This is the name of the site to which you are directing traffic, for example "home". Enter only the word you want to appear after your site name in the url and nothing else.Advanced Clean URLs
