I will try this! Thank you!
I’m trying to implement this solution but I don’t understand, I’m confused:
for example, I don’t understand which parameter should I send of my item, then how the “get from path” works to get back the item in the page (no documentation), then I don’t understand how this should shrink the url…
could you please give me a slower walk-through?
I would really appreciate that
Actually I think I’m starting to succeed… but there is one inconvenient I found in this method:
I can call the datas I want, in a group on the page, but I cannot tell “the page” to be based on that data…
this is a big restriction to determine accurate title and description for SEO, as this two can be referred only to “current page item” and “current user”
Customizable SEO/FB title and description
So on page load, when you read in the parameter, you can then store the thing on the User. So you can use it in the OG tags.
Ah ok, you mean saving the data on the user… but this way I waste one workflow per page load…Any idea on how to avoid it?
You could set a page’s content type to be a thing. Then see if you can extract the parameter, then do a navigation to the same page with the page thing. Although that will go from the www.yoursite/yourpage/thething simpler URL to one with the UID on the end.
mmm… actually I’m trying to make the url short for SEO purposes… adding redirection and finding me anyway in the page with ID, or not being able to set the SEO tags is a dog biting his tail… Maybe it is worth it to ask for the feature to be able to set SEO description and SEO title more dynamically, as we can do with page title (with a search for example…)?
Where exactly do I add the “get path” in order to get the /user/charlie instead of the crazy unique ID?
Down at the bottom of the list of options …
and I just put this on any object on the page?
I don’t know what you are trying to do, so can’t comment on where you want to put this.
But most likely you want do it on Page Load workflow.
So set a custom state on page load, that pulls in the path, searches for whatever thing it is you are after, and then sets the state to the thing you have just found.
If I pay you, would you be open to taking a look at what I’m doing and maybe walking me through it?
The best way to get help is to change your app to be Public, that way we can help directly.
Once sorted you can flip it back to provate again.
Hey thanks! Sorry, I just saw this… My app is public right now, how can I share access to you?
I am a bit lost now
Haha sorry, I need help creating “clean links” for user profiles… i.e. Take the giant personal id number at the end of the url and make it just the users username or similar… Or have redirects be created that send the user to the page.
You had said the best way for you to show me would be to make my app public… Which it now is… How can I give you access?
Just need the name of your app. Either PM or here
Is there any examples of the workflows to achieve this? Im trying to create clean urls for members using their usernames and im lost
