How do URLs work on the MMI site?

URLs are assigned in the content entry page, using the shortname and URL parent fields. For more information about URL conventions in use on the MMI site, see the link below.

In general, the shortname and URL parent should be used to generate the alias. In rare cases, members might need to assign "special" URLs. This should be done carefully, and only as prescribed by MMI URL conventions and procedures.

Historical note

In previous versions of the MMI website, the "alias" function was used to generate short URLs which could be used to point others to content. In the current version of the site, this can be done using the node number.
