Creating Group Pages

Share

ISSUE:

When viewing the group page in the browser, it displays the content of the first child page. As you can see, the URLs are different in both images, but the content is coming from the child page. This isn’t ideal for SEO, so we can adjust some settings so that the group page URL automatically redirects to the first child page URL.   

EXAMPLE:

Group Page:

    
Child Page: 



SOLUTION:
Sitefinity has an out-of-the-box solution to fix this. Sitefinity allows you to create “Group Pages”, which is a page that does not have content, and is instead used for keeping pages organized.

  1. Login to the Sitefinity backend
  2. Go to “Settings” from the Administration menu (See Figure 1)
  3. Go to “Advanced” settings (See Figure 2)
  4. Scroll down and expand the “Pages” settings (See Figure 3)
  5. Scroll down further and check the “Redirect to the first accessible page inside a group page” checkbox (See Figure 4)
  6. Scroll down to the end of the page and click “Save Changes” (Figure 5)
  7. Restart the website and go to the group page URL. Sitefinity will automatically redirect you to the child page URL
