Creating web friendly URLs with asset builder

(John) #1

Matrix Version:

Hi gang!
I have an asset builder for creating news items.
As the builder uses the news headline to create its URL, I’m getting some crazy URLs containing special characters and punctuation etc.
Is there an easy way to restrict what characters end up in the URL? Is there a way to make them more “web friendly?”

Not easily, yet. We are planning on adding a feature that will let you control which characters gets replaced in webpath generation.

You could maybe do something with the Add/Remove Web Path trigger actions to manually do it on the asset create event?

No worries Bart, thanks for the input!

Hello, this has come up again recently, can anyone confirm if this feature has been added to Matrix?
