Wow, those URLs are friendly, man
Thanks to some excellent help from my friend, Mr Rob E, I just realised where I was going wrong with so-called Friendly URLs in WebSphere Portal.
I'd used the Portal User Interface -> Manage Pages -> Edit Page Properties route to add a Friendly URL to a sub-page within the page hierarchy BUT it just didn't flippin' well work.
For example, I created a Friendly URL named 'Dude" for my sub-page, and expected to be able to navigate to it using the URL syntax: -
but kept ending up at the "home" page.
It's obvious where I'd gone wrong, right ? Wrong !
The trick is that you need to create a Friendly URL for EVERY level of the navigation !
So, in my case, I needed to create a Friendly URL for the Home page ( I called it 'Homey' ).
Once I'd done this, I was able to jump directly to the page using the URL: -
As Aleksandr would say, "Seemples" !
