I'm just curious to see if it's possible to amend a published URL so that instead of '?template_id=275' at the end of the web link it could be a more meaningful phrase (related to the content of the object)?

Thanks

Yvonne

I'm not sure whether this can be done (I haven't explored the sneak preview of X in detail yet), but have you thought about using a 3rd party tool such as bit.ly, ow.ly, goo.gl etc? I know that with bit.ly, if you login/create an account, you can customise the bit that follows the bit.ly/.

You could then insert this into the notes option on your learning object for future reference if you have several that you wanted to convert.

Hope that helps

Thanks Helen.

I was hoping to avoid url shortening services as they don't make sense to the user either!

In wordpress you have the ability to use sensible page naming - it just makes life easier. For example, if I want to share an object I currently have to go and look it up - there's no way to make a reasonable guess! If it was ended with /useful_descriptor it would be more helpful.

Hi Yvonne
This has been on our 'wish list' of things we'd like to do on GitHub for some time but unfortunately isn't possible at the moment

GitHub #468

How can you manipulate the published object URL, so 'play.php?template_id=275' instead becomes something like 'play_275'?
