I belive that SS must keep going like this way. Current system is perfect.
Maybe makes some people angry but just my opinions :)
Let me tell why.
Current rendering of URL is meaningful for visitors and also has the benefits of SEO.
And my opinion is this is much more better cos with this way you are completely free do assign any word for any page. And also allows to give easier URL's to people.
The MOST IMPORTANT PART IS to change and move the pages freely inside the site tree without changing their address!!! I have more than 150 pages and I know the need for moving page but also I know the addressing and search engine trouble after that.
Thanks to SS. I love the new way.
Another example, I have a file manager module with iframe in 3.rd menu level in my site. Dosent need and also musnt be on homepage.
But I can give people an URL like this www.mysite.com/file
Isn't that nice?
Or create acommunity area under a sub category give people around pages or galleries, but still be able to give people URL's with their usernames etc.
Or a logon screen for SS itself or ext application. Do you want to be forced to put logon page to the main page. Or a top level menu category to be able to use an URL like www.mysite.com/login
Or think commercial. Advertisements, promotions...
I'l not prefer www.mysite.com/products/new_summer/promotons :)
But I also think over hierarcial URL's. what does it offer more than this?
Not SEO, please no :)
Not customer pleasure, who cares. Think that they care, is there a matter?
Only think that I belive is being able to understand the category of the page that I visit. Dont need, I see it on the menu.
Anyway, please do not swear me :)
And just a request from development team, is it possible to keep old style URL if there will be an update on this?
