I had trouble getting this to work and understaning the documentation and so thought a simple, practical example of a rewrite rule would be helpful.
and it maps it to my actual
What would this rule be? This is the most common use by ppl I think.

I looked at the Inventua module but from what I understood was it didn't support friendly URLs. It will rewrite everything automatically for you though so you don't have to write rules. So I could have the following:
and it maps it to my actual
but other links on the page if they had parameters would automatically be converted to
and it maps it to my actual (because I specify a specific rule dictating this)
but if other links to this page had parameters they would revert to a normal friendly URL link (since a rule is not supplied)
I don't actually understand quite how both modules work (apparently from posts their engine is quite different). But from an end users perspective, Inventua seems good for an easy automated solution that doesn't support friendly URLs. So great quick solution
for marketing type sites.
And rewrite is great for more complex sites where you might want friendly URLs in your forums or other modules for search engine optimization and want to spend the extra time making your URLs exactly how you want them. It seems like it is more work but more
flexible. Rewrite is also great for when you change a website's URL paths as you can redirect old URLs to the new locations.
I am spending a lot of work on SEO on my site and friendly URLs is important so I plan on using rewrite.
Thanks for the response. Am I correct here in my analysis of these 2 modules?

I found a simple pattern that worked for me. Let's assume my site is
localhost/dnn & I want to get localhost/dnn/social.aspx to point to a tab named social (localhost/dnn/tabid/154/default.aspx)
So when adding this rule localhost\dnn\social.aspx redirected to my site. But I have 30 portals which have this pattern replacement and don't want to repeat them. So I tried...
But this redirects back to home because the url does not contain portal info. So I tried...
And this worked but I have to specify the portalID each time and make the rule portal specific. But then I can also use the alias instead of portalID...
Which brings me to my question. :) Is there a pattern one can use to redirect to a tab based on tabname that works for all portals? Anyone have a syntax suggestion -- I had trouble following how to use the syntax. This is what I had in mind where [portalalias]
is a variable ......
Would using the portallias work for all DNN cases? It looked like this would be a useful rule for some ppl....
By the way, thanks for this great module. I'm so happy having pretty URLs....

I have been looking into this module further and have had trouble getting it to work on multiple portals. The documentation and posts hint at problems here but none of them are very specific. So here is my question to understand how this module works or
how other DNN rewrite modules could work.
I have a parent site www.mysite.com with different child portals for US Cities. So there is also
Is it possible to have rewrite do the following (where events.aspx maps to a different events tabid for each child portal):
That is, can the same pattern expression (events.aspx in this case) redirect differently for each different portal? Or are all rules global? I tried but could not get any portal rules to work and documenation was vague here on whether per portal rewrite was
working or not or even possible with DNN.
