I’ve been playing around with prettyfaces for our website for the last day or two. So far, it has fit the bill nicely for many of the SEO requirements that our business unit is asking of us.
However, one thing I can’t quite figure out from the documentation, or from my experimentation:
Is it possible to create an h:commandlink that is seo friendly? All our commandlinks render like this (forum software is stripping things) (angle bracket)a href=”#”
If I use outputLink, I can specify my new friendly urls as the target in the href easily.
I could convert all these commandlinks to outputlinks, and use get request parameters, but this is not preferable as we were trying to avoid this — most of the parameters on our links include business logic that we do not want to expose to the user (which is currently being hidden in the post body with the commandlinks).
Basically, I need to change that lovely # sign to something else, and I want to know if its possible!
