Question How to create a menu item to single topic

More
9 months 3 weeks ago #1 by toddjharrison
Hey all,

I'm attempting to create a menu item which links to a single topic to use as a vanity URL for use in-game where typing a long URL isn't viable.

There isn't an option to do this in the Kunena menu, so thought I'd just grab the URL and create the menu item using the 'URL' option under 'System Links'.

However, this results in a 404 error when attempting to use it.

TOPIC URL: trekcommander.space/forum/fleet-command/49-danpmk-s-galaxy-map

VANITY URL: trekcommander.space/map

I've got URL rewriting turned on and the .htaccess file properly set up (as in everything else is working, etc).

Does anyone have any idea what I might be doing wrong? Everything else is working perfectly. I suppose I could create an .htaccess redirect, but would rather accomplish this using the Joomla menu system if at all possible.

Thank you all in advance for the help!

Todd

1. First open this topic and copy the url from the browser address.
2. Use "System Links -> URL" and enter the relative address such as forum/test-category-6/20-link-test (without slash at the beginning).

Hey Rich,

Thanks for the reply, but that's exactly what I've been doing, and it results in a 404 error.

It throws a 404 irrespective of whether or not the TLD is included in the URL field.

No idea why.

Ok, I've done some more testing on this, and still can't figure it out. I have recreated the Kunena menu using the Menu Manager in the Kunena back-end, but this still hasn't resolved the issue. The vanity URL is still returning a 404 error.

I'll paste in the config report below just in case that turns something up.

Your Kunena menu items are ok. But I don't think, that's a menu problem. I see no another way as a redirection, or you keep the original url. But maybe other users have a better solution.
