Your Latest code MrTheme doesnt work, it give 404 error
very cool - i did run into a little problem with accessing my domain if I didn't have anything trailing.
So mysite.com/ would redirect to the content manager and say "page does not exist - then send me to index.php
A rule would need to be added for the toplevel.
Excellent, now the next step would be to generate SEO friendly links from the content manager itself. Meaning that all links in the content menu for example should be conforming the SEO friendly way. Preferrably this should be based on a variable configuration parameter.
Quick and dirty would be something like:
If admin choses to use the rewrite rule in a .htaccess file, all url's to content pages should be rewritten from: site.com/content.php?page=XXX to site.com/XXX
In order to do that we need to change the files:
In the first two files change the line:
makes sense to me, and you are correct - so the final working code is
You are going to need an identifier like /content/ or /page/ otherwise anything that comes after your domain is going to be forced into the loop.
I was just playing around with it - and its totally possble - this is actually working code. Modify to your needs.
If you can use rewrite rules all you need is a little bit of hacking actually.
1. Check if the url is a valid url. If so then don't do anything.
2. If not a valid url: rewrite the url from site.com/XXX to site.com/content.php?page=XXX
.htaccess code should be something like:
why isn't it doable?
Shouldn't this work just fine?
yes this is the optimal rewrite engine, but at the moment not doable ...
maybe later with an impresscms node system.
I want to change my site.com/content.php?page=XXX links to site.com/XXX , with using Rewriting Url.
What is the code that i've to use to do that !
Thank you very much, dbman. Why not help us improve ImpressCMS some more? As a matter of fact... I was installing ImpressCMS a lot this weekend and I see some room for improvement. More on this later. I like the article, by the way, but it shows that we still have a long way to go to impress more people...
I personally didn't see anything negative there, just some good feedback.
I would say there are something in the install which could be simplified a little further requiring fewer screens. I think without checking that we currently have some 10 screens.
The reviewer had some valid points which will be taken on board, in fact it was only perhaps a week ago I believe we had a discussion about the default theme and made the decision that in the 1.2 release the theme will be changed.
Thank you very much, dbman.

imo its all good!
The reference to the installation process is unfounded. In reality the both xoops and impresscms installations are far more logical then the reference cms, MODx. Reducing the number of screens is not more efficient, in fact I would think it's more confusing to the inexperienced user.
All in all it's a positive review, the strong points of any cms were touted (features, module settings, content management, user and groups access, tags, security and document management).
Congrats to the developers and support folks involved with ImpressCMS.
Half good comments... half not so good comments... but a good final not?
A nice little review by Hazel Notes:
it depends on their criteria for how they judge which is the best. it's all subjective..
None what so all really - and it's certainly not a spotlightable piece of news - but I saw this url on the xoops site .. and thought it was nice of them to point to ourselves as well
I can make a list with 40 top CMS and list iCms at first.
My question is: what is the importance of this list?
Nice to see we get a reasonable position here
