Getting Started

This page guides you in a few words through the setting up process of URL Adapter. So, let's get started!

  1. Before you proceed make sure you have URL Adapter installed on your site. You can download it from URL Adapter Download Page and install it from Host > Extensions screen.

  5. If you want to customize the way special pages like home page or users pages are accessed, then you should check Special Pages section.

  6. The next step in your journey towards SEO and usability is to customize the way your portal is accessed. More information you'll find in Portal Aliases section.

  7. Further, if you want to write your own rules that match directly on URLs, you should explore the many options available in Advanced Rules section.
