I'm trying to re-write the way a URL is constructed for a certain page type, but I'm having trouble figuring out the logic.

Say I have an address that looks like this:

Now, a category isn't Real Page, it's just a placeholder in the hierarchy to sort a section into smaller chunks. So the address I really want would look like . That would take me directly to the category part of the section page.

The problem I'm having is building the Link in a way that doesn't rely on the Link method itself. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place, but I'm having trouble piecing together exactly how to make this work. Any ideas?

Nevermind, I figured it out. I've been away from SS for too long and was going about it all wrong. This does the trick:

public function Link() {
	$link = rtrim(parent::Link(), '/');
	$link = substr_replace($link, '/#', strrpos($link, '/'), 1);
	return $link;
