Just as it says there really.
You can create a folder that has the same name as your web app and set up pages inside of it.
Web app called - news.
Folder - /news
Create index page - /news/index.html
This means /news will go to that landing page and web app items will work as normal as - /news/your-news-post
You can create other pages in that folder if you wish but can not be the same name as your web app items.
So how do the sub folders work exactly? As per Sharifer007's example an drefering to that blog post, is the WebApp still "folder" or is it "sub-folder"?
If the WebApp is "folder" what use is the assigning of a subfolder. Would that then mean we could categorise items of a single WebApp into subfolders and display only those related items when viewing a subfolder (this doesn't seem right without the use of 'classifying' items).
Or is it puely an SEO thing being able to customise the directory structure?
I can't see why subfolders for WebApps would be of any use without having multiple WebApps which you were trying to make appear as one... but that seems a clumsy way of doing it?
Perhaps I'm missing something, can anyone shed light on this new subfolder feature for WebApps? and perhaps a use case for this?
Wrong idea Adam, not talking sub folders.
You could not make a page or folder with the same as a web app before and thus could not utilise the index.html of the folder structure a web app creates.
The update allows you to do this and allows you to add other pages inside a folder you create yourself based on the same folder as the web app.
Not sure what you trying to think but forget that train of thought - not correct here.
Reason this update is good?
IF you had a list of testimonials you would build a web app called "testiomnials" and create some testimonials.
the folder would be..
If you wanted to create a listing of all of them you would make a page and stick a module on that page.
That page you would have to call "testimonial-list" as testimonials was reserved fro the web app. BC wasted the ability to have a index.html in /testimonials so you can have a better url for your list.
By making a folder of the same name as the web app folder you can.
What else you want to do based on the abilities open is entirly up to you.
