Pretty URLs – how-tos & guides

without comments

Since we run a membership-fee-based service, we’ve focused on providing security for our inside-the-walled-garden URLs. It’s been important to protect the content generated by our members for our members from being scooped out by unscrupulous operators. That said, we’re probably getting to the point at which we should pretty up our URLs, if only to enhance our member experience and ease with which members can find their content.

In searching around for guidance on how to go about switching to pretty URLs, I’ve found the following helpful:

  • A Report on one company’s experience with switching to pretty URLs
  • An analysis of that report here.
  • A bunch of solid advice on how to think about pretty URLs.
  • Nuts & bolts about setting up Apache for URL rewriting.
