Love the ability to set Page Urls in DNN 7 but I have come across a little problem when changing the page URL for theHome page
Initially it was /Home but I want my home page url to be a plain / or nothing at all. I know I do not need to change this to be able to access the site without the /Home but the Sitemap.aspx lists the home page with the /Home
For SEO purposes that means I theoretically have 2 pages with the same content "/" and "/Home". Not good to have duplicate content
I also know I can setup a redirect but thats an extra step that I would like to avoid unless I really have to
So I went into the page settings and set the Page Url to "/". Worked great.....until I tried to edit anything on my home page
Example, when I try to edit the content of a Html module, I get the popup window as usual but instead of the wysiwyg editor appearing I get a 404 page not found message in the popup. As the popup contains an Iframe it seems that using "/" as the home page url messes up the iframe URL used to load the editor control.
This same problem occurs if I try to edit the home page settings which caused me a little problem when trying to set the page url back to /Home. I had to go into the database and change the setting manually
I am currently using DNN 7.2 but the same problem was in an earlier 7.x version.
Anyone have any ideas how I can achieve a blank or "/" page url for the home page in the SiteMap.aspx without getting this 404's when I try to edit anything on that page
Many thanks in advance for any help and advice given
