URL Hierarchy for Unit Websites.

Postby dakwegmo-p40 » Tue Feb 06, 2007 10:01 am

I'd like to see the unit website URLs structured in a more logical hierarchy than is currently in use. Right now it seems that there is no easy way to find information about a unit unless you've previously been given a link.

Ideally, the URL structure would take the format of UNIT.STAKE.lds.org, or a similar logical breakdown. I this would make it easier for members visiting a new area, or moving to a new area to get an idea of what's going on and at least be able to find a meeting house nearby.

If you know the name of the unit, it's not hard to find using the existing search feature. What I think would be majorly cool is to use the new mapping that is being considered for LUWS to allow you to use a map to click on a unit by it's boundaries. (Although how that would work for Student, Singles and Language wards could be a bit problematic.)

Actually for singles, student, and language wards you just have to do another color or be able to select what type of ward you are looking for as you go through the map.

I do agree about the friendly URLs - something like www.lds.org /units/SomeArea/SomeStakeMissionOrDistrict/SomeWardOrBranch, whatever hierarchy is flexible enough for the growth of the Church. :) I do believe going after lds.org would be more aesthetically pleasing than constant subdomains before lds.org.
