    This is not very SEO friendly

    Is there a way to make this url like the following example?

    http://www.guitarsocial.com/blog.aspx/categoryname

    Thanks,
    Shane

    Hi Shane,

    We are currently working on improvements of the Search functionality in Sitefinity. Improving tags and categories is one of the scheduled tasks, and it will include the friendly URL look.

    I was just checking to see if you had an eta on the blog categories url problem?  I posted my question 4 months ago so I am hoping that you guys might know more now.

    This is still an issue for me so I am eagerly waiting :D

    Thanks,
    Shane

    Hello Shane,

    This is not a problem anymore :)
    In Sitefinity 3.2SP2 and later versions, the category id in the URL now can be changed with the category name, so your URLs would look like this:
    http://localhost/august/hello.aspx?BlogCatID=CategoryName

    In order to switch between ID and Name query string, you need to Edit the BlogPosts control, click on Advanced tab, QueryString Keys. Just change the property CategoryKeyType to Name and you will be done.

    Don't hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.
