How to Create Friendly Links in Dolphin 7.1

Hello and welcome! In today’s blog I’ll show you how to create “friendly links” or “permalinks” as they are also known.

By using Apache mod_rewrite, an .htaccess file and the Dolphin permalink function we can turn this:

http://www.yoursite.com/modules/?r=photos/view/photoname

To this:

http://www.yoursite.com/m/photos/view/photoname

To activate the permalinks simply log into your admin section and click “Settings” on the left side menu and then “Advanced Settings”. Next click “Permalinks” at the bottom of the options. To activate or deactivate the friendly links for any of the modules you have installed you can check or uncheck them and then click “save”.

The changes will take effect immediately
