 + 
 +GetSimple allows you to create better looking, and more SEO friendly URLs. In order for this feature to work, your server needs to have the **mod_rewrite** module installed.  
 + 
 +You also have the ability to edit the structure of the URLs by setting a **Custom Permalink Structure**. Certain custom structures need the **mod_rewrite** module, but not all.  
 + 
 +==== Custom Permalink Structure ==== 
 + 
 +Create custom permalinks via the **Settings** tab in your GetSimple installation. Permalinks help define the URL structure of your site. If you put a value in the **Custom Permalink Structure** input box, your **FancyURL** setting may be overridden by the string you put in. 
 + 
 +The default URL structure for **"​FancyURLs"​ ON** is: 
 +''​%parent%/​%slug%/''​ 
 + 
 +The default URL structure for **"​FancyURLs"​ OFF** is: 
 +''​index.php?​id=%slug%''​ 
 + 
 +=== Syntax === 
 + 
 + 
 +The two tags to build your custom permalink are ''​%parent%''​ and ''​%slug%''​ 
 +Do not use a beginning slash 
 + 
 +=== Examples === 
 + 
 +Replace subdirectory with your own virtual directory ​//this folder does not need to exist//: 
 +<​code>​subdirectory/​%parent%/​%slug%/</​code>​  
 + 
 +Removes the ''​index.php''​ from URL. This can be done without Fancy URL's turned on: 
 +<​code>?​id=%slug%</​code>​ 
 + 
 +=== Adding .html, .htm or .php extension to URLs === 
 + 
 +If you want to add an extension (''​.html'',​ ''​.htm''​ or ''​.php''​) to your website'​s pages, you first need turn on **Use Fancy URLs**, then set the **Custom Permalink Structure** to (example for pages that will end in ''​.html''​): 
 +<​code>​%slug%.html</​code>​ 
 + 
 +Next, you need to make a small change to your root level ''​.htaccess''​ file. Change the Rewrite Rule to this: 
 +<​code>​RewriteRule /?​([A-Za-z0-9_-]+).html$ index.php?​id=$1 ​[QSA,L]</​code>​ 
 + 
 +NOTE: Change ''​.html'' ​to ''​.php''​ (or ''​.htm''​) in both the Rewrite Rule above and the permalink structure, if you are using that extension instead.
