In order to provide a way for the website URL to be modified, Contao created several options within the Front End settings. The Front End configuration settings also include the caching settings for the website. The following article explains how to navigate to the front end configuration settings and make changes using the Contao Back end.
There are several ways to change the URL through Contao. You can generate URLs that only show the website name, include the language of the website and display a folder-like format among the many options. The following steps show how to change these settings.
|URL option||Description of URL setting|
|URL suffix||Suffix is added to the URI path|
|Rewrite URLs||Enable this option to generate static URLs without the index.php; requires mod_rewrite and using the Contao provided htaccess file.|
|Add the language to the URL||Adds the language string to the URL. For example http://domain.com/en|
|Enable folder URLs||Enables folder-style page aliases. For example, instead of http://domain.com/folder-article-image, it would be http://domain.com/folder/article/image|
|Enable auto_item||Enables the use of auto_item to find a particular item - items/ or events/ fragment are removed from the URL.|
|Do not redirect empty URLs||If the URL is empty display the main website instead of re-directing to the language root. (not recommended) - used when language string is being used|
|Disable page alias usage||Displays the the numeric ID of a page/article instead of the alias|
Caching allows the server/browser to save a page into memory so that it loads quicker the next time a request for the page is requested. Contao has settings for the use of server-only, browser-only, server and browser caching.
Bear in mind that caching is used to help provide a faster browsing experience for the visitors to your website. Information for clearing server cache can be found Purging the Cache in Contao. You can also find information on clear a browser's cacher here: Clearing Your Browser Cache.
