XF 1.2 Route Changer Conditionals

    Is there a simple way that I can create route changer conditionals?

    For example, I've got a forum that I'm styling to work as an articles section. However, the URLs are currently the standard thread format.

    Instead of having the /threads/ route, I'd like to change this to /articles/ if the thread_id is in a specific node_id. Is there a simple way of doing this, other than manually adding lots of route changes manually?

    No, this either needs to be done manually or possibly done via an add-on.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Do you happen to know if there are any addons that do something similar to this, or use some of the same methods, so I've got a base to start from?

    I do not. You may be able to do it with something like XenPorta, but I haven't used or seen an add-on that does it.

    Theoretically, if I prefixed the articles with something, i.e. "ARTICLEPAGE" then this would appear in the URL:

    /threads/ARTICLEPAGE-Article-Title-Goes Here.57642/

    Could I then use the wildcard feature to route this as follows:

    /threads/ARTICLEPAGE-{name} -----> /articles/{name}

    Would that work?

    I haven't tested, but I do not believe that would work, no. (I'll probably test later).
