Hi there,

I am trying to change each page to point to a permanent link.

For example:

Clicking on Sport link takes me to

I would like it to take me to www.edenview

This way people only have to download x1 file instead of multiple swf files.

If you know how I can modify the links please let me know.

How is that link generated?

You'll could add a db field for 'RealLink':

 class MyPage extends Page {
static $db = array('RealLink' => 'Varchar(255)');

...and then override Link() to go append it:

class MyPage extends Page {
  static $db = array('RealLink' => 'Varchar(255)');
  function Link()
  return $this->Link.'/'.$this->RealLink;

In the template you could then just continue using $Link to output it.
