You can assign a Friendly URL at any time to most any page in your system! This FAQ will take you through guides, guide pages, subject categories (admin level users only), and group homepages (admin level users only).

Guide Friendly URLs

  1. While editing your guide, go to Guide Settings > Change Guide Information.
  2. Add a name to the Friendly URL section on the "Basic Settings" tab and click Save.
