Short-Url / Accessfiles
Time to remove shorturl from the system. It is too complex and complicated for ordinary users to handle.
At the same time, all the great effort to generate and maintain the mass of access files disappears. The PAGES_DIRECTORY folder will also be deleted.
The replacement: Is a straightforward, core-integrated routing module that handles all addressing. It offers several options for address structure, which can be changed with a simple mouse click.
Of course, the conventional access file addresses from WebsiteBaker as well as the short-url generated addresses continue to work without any problems. So no links (from search engines or other sites) are lost. In other words: the new routing is 100% SEO-safe.
A welcome and nice side effect of the new routing is the fact that almost any character set (Russian, Chinese, Arabic, etc.) can now be used in the page tree. Both for the directories and the page names (previously file names).
The first tests with a prepared WB-2.13.x have been successful so far.
