XF 1.2 Creating pages problem

    Okay, I read these pages :

    http://xenforo.com/community/resources/adding-a-privacy-policy-page-to-your-website.2253/
    http://xenforo.com/help/friendly-urls/

    and on the Basic Board Information I entered custom URLs and placed a tick mark beside "User Friendly URLs", but if my page is myurl.com/privacy and I entered the data at Applications > Create New Page and under Page Options I entered the html for the privacy text...

    But when I click on the privacy policy link in the footer, it returns a blank page.

    How do I get this page working ?

    Help appreciated.

    Right, I did that and it shows up in the Node Tree and when I click on it it has the details. I entered "privacy" in the URL portion and in the page options I entered the page:
    <div class="messageText ugc baseHtml">
    <body>
    <h1>PRIVACY POLICY</h1>
    various text ............
    .......................

    </body>

    </div>

    What is the link to your page?

    Okay - thank you. So, how do I change the link in the footer to match this and why does it say pages/privacy. Is it not possible to just have /privacy or does it matter?

    On the Basic Board Information page I entered http://imlightning.com/privacy, so not sure why that does not work.

    I guess I am more concerned about having friendly URLs for posts at forums for SEO purposes etc

    You can remove the pages/ prefix for specific page nodes by using the Route Filters (example 2).

    You cannot remove a route using route filters, only rename them.

    You can do it for specific page nodes, as shown in the Manual. I edited my post.
