Web page folders

I think that a really good thing to add to the site building sometime in the near future is the ability to make your web pages inside folders. For example, I run a website for a Boy Scout troop and we take a lot of pictures on our camp outs and I upload them to the website. Well right now when I make the page for the pictures, I have to make such a long URL where as if I could make my pages inside folders, I could make a folder called photos, then another for the year, and another folder for the camp out. That way I can have neat URLs. So instead of having a URL be say example.com/summer-camp-2010.php I could have example.com/photos/2010/summer-camp/pg1.php. I think that would be a lot neater, especially when the best name for a page is something long like troop-camp-out-8-13-2010. It just doesn't look as neat to me. So basically, how this would work is you would need a new button called create folder, then when you go to make a new page, you have a drop down listing all the folders and you choose which folder to place it in. Also, it might be best maybe to not make your web page folder appear in the File Manager.

Hello Hayden,
I'm wondering if what you are wanting to do is something that could be solved with subpages, unless the reason for this is simply that you would like a different URL structure. Is there a reason that you would like your URL to be so long, as in example.com/photos/2010/summer-camp/pg1.php? Right now when you add an image to a folder in the file manager the URL of the image will take on this format: mysite.com/resources/foldername/imagename.jpg.

Now, if what you would like to do is better organize these on the website, possibly subpages would be the route to go. You could then have a main "Photos" page with links to various years and seasons such as Summer 2009, Summer 2010, Fall 2009, Fall 2010 etc. Then on each of those pages the pictures from that time.

Here is a link with more information on this: Creating subpages.

This might not be what you are looking for at all, it's just me fishing for a way to help you accomplish what you would like.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Hi, but what Hayden wants to do is to create other folders, like so:

http://example.com/directory-1/page.php

------------------------------------------------------------------

Also, what I want to do is like add other directories right in the root directory, like this:

http://example.com/directory1/pagenam...

And, for my temrs of use and privay policy pages, I want to make it like this:

Privacy Page: http://example.com/legal/privacy

Terms page: http://example.com/legal/terms

Or something like that. I like how we can create other folder inside the resources folder, but I wish we can create folder right in the root directory. And, it would be nice to have access to the root directory of our sites. This is all feature requests from me.
