Help controller doesn't auto-generate sef urls

Reported by dleffler | May 3rd, 2011 @ 01:11 PM

Since most sef urls are self-generated, you'd expect the help controller to do the same. If not, the help links tend to break down. And it's hard to get back to editing the entry to add the sef url.

    Or at least on the help/doc site...

    It also appears the sef-url is not a required entry since you can save a doc without one, but can't get to it later except through the help manager.

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”

    This is only a problem on the doc site and not in the release code. Will be merging the two shortly.

    It's now fixed on the doc site with a copy of the main branch's help datatype

    I think this was for a reason: When you add another version of the help docs, it copies all the help files in to this new version, which need identical SEF URLs, and if the are auto-generating, Exponent will change the URL to something that is't taken already. That won't work when you try to hit the, since it'll now be different.

    Best solution would be to just to put the SEF URL right under Title, and not make it auto-generate.

    Ok, I'll fix it...wasn't creating sef-urls which are mandatory to see the help page since they are by title, not id#

    Correct... and maybe ID would have been better, but the URL's will be prettier. We'll just need to make the SEF field more prominent, and maybe add some example text on the field to explain to the documenter why it's needed.
