Category name in URL


(Vincent) #1

Hello,

Is it possible to change my forum’s urls to have category name inside it ?
I have found this topic but I have looked everywhere and I have found no option in admins menus.

The category is in the <title> tag as I recall. But I don’t see it there now. Not sure why we closed that other topic, @tobiaseigen do you remember?

Maybe I’m mistaken about what that topic was about - I thought it was about having the category show up in title and url of the category pages.

If it’s about having the category name in the topic urls then that’s a different issue altogether - not an entirely bad idea to add it but might make for very long URLs, e…g:

https://meta.discourse.org/t/features-category-name-in-url/29113

A slash between category and topic title would probably be more google friendly but would probably wreak havoc with the way urls are handled within discourse.

https://meta.discourse.org/t/features/category-name-in-url/29113

Category name does show up in topic titles as you said.
