So my managers want to change the verbiage of some of our menu items without have the name change effect the path of the link

For example, right now we have "Payer List" on the menu that goes to /payerlist.aspx and we have a few hundred links going to that specific address. However, now we want the menu item to change to "Professional Payer List". If you make this change in DNN Admin it changes the link address to /professionalpayerlist.aspx. Is there anyway to change the name of a menu item and not change the link address?

Oliver,

which DNN version?

What you can do in all versions is implementing a Request filter (under Host::HostSettings::Other Settings), like this:

Server Variable: HTTP_URL
Operation: Equal
Match value: /payerlist.aspx
Action: Redirect
Location: http://www.mysite.com/professionalpayerlist.aspx

(Maybe you have to play around a bit with the values, but this way it should work)

Happy DNNing!
Michael

This is possible in DNN7 with the advanced url option on. As you say the url eds with .aspx, you don't have the advanced urls.
That can be changed in the web.config (in DNN 7.1+), this allows you to define a page url and page name separately.
