When I moved over a site to silverstripe the most important thing to me was preserving the existing link structure (http://www.silverstripe.org/migrating-a-site-to-silverstripe/show/251148). In the end I did this mostly either opening up phpmyadmin then editing the locations of the pages to whatever they used to be or using a hacked version of the nested urls branch.

You can see an example of this here -->http://www.rustyspigot.com/Computer_Science/Probability.htm - it is possible, but messy

I've tried to prevent duplicate content in silverstripe with 301 redirects in .htaccess
this can get quite messy, but is useful for redirecting domain.com/folder to domain.com/folder/

I'm also concerned about possible duplicate content in silverstripe (see my post http://www.silverstripe.org/general-questions/show/252604), though from what I hear google is kinder to duplicate content these days (its harder to do the old cgi proxy trick to remove sites from the index)...

Any word on when Silverstripe 2.4 will be released?

I am about to start a couple of projects that require nested urls and would love to use silverstripe to build them.
