Add forward slash in URL

In Muse I'm trying to recreate the exact same URL from a website built early by a webdesigner. The URL has a very high ranking in Google and I don't want to lose it or the direct URL link to it.

 

The URL I want to create is this:

http://www.peterdiianni.com/writings/preserving-artwork.html

 

I figured creating a new CHILD or a new SIBLING would add a forward slash and the word "writing" but I can only get it to be:

http://www.peterdiianni.com/preserving-artwork.html

 

Is there a way to configure my Muse website to have the first URL?

 

Thanks, Peter

Simple solution.  Redirect server traffic from old URL to new URL.  The manner in which you do this depends on what type of server and hosting plan you have.   On a Linux server, you can edit or create an .htaccess file in a plain text or code editor (not Muse) and upload it to your server's root folder where your index page resides.  Or use your server's C-panel to add a rewrite rule as shown below.

 

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !http://www.peterdiianni.com/writings/preserving-artwork.html$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.peterdiianni.com/preserving-artwork.html/$1 [L,R=301]

 

For all other servers, contact your hosting provider for details.

You can’t simply add a slash to your page name. To recreate a path like "test.com/something/it-is-me.html" you need to recreate this structure on your server. But Muse has its own way to create directories. It will always be test.com/it-is-me.html". The only thing you can do: Create a subdomain. In this case you will be able to have "something.test.com/it-is-me.html".

Hi Gunter,

 

Thanks for the response.

 

From your description it doesn't sound like the creation of a subdirectory directly in Muse will work for me if I'm trying to replicate an exact URL address with 2 forward slashes. But you mention that it might be possible to recreate this sturcture on the server. I'm not terribly savy about working with servers, but if you have a relatively simply explanation of how I might do this, I'm certainly willing to give it a shot.

 

(Or if anyone else has any suggestions, I'm all ears)

 

Thanks again

Muse is no coding app, itn is a web design app. It depends completely on its own directory structure, to which you have no access without manual coding.

You may use subdomains, which you normally can setup within your domain, but even in theis case, the path will be a different one.
