    How to add node ID to a node's URL dynamically


    Anyone knows how to implement something like the Umbraco Forums topics URLs.

    as you can see below, Umbraco Forum adds node ID as a prefix to the URL.

    enter image description here

    I've read before, that this can be done by UmbracoUrlName, where you can customize a URL, but I need it dynamically, without the need to edit a node each time.

    Hi Saif

    You can plugin your own logic to how a Url is generated in Umbraco for a particular type of page, you can do this by creating a custom UrlProvider and ContentFinder, to specify the rules for generating the Url and then mapping that incoming Url to the content.

    But you can also customise the logic that generates a particular 'segment' of a url - by creating a custom UrlSegmentProvider... there is an example in the documentation of adding a 'product id sku' to the segment of the Url - see here:

    That might be relevant to what you are trying to achieve.

    We have dealt with this issue by creating an UmbracoURLName property, and we've set an event on nodes creation, so we fill UmbracoURLName with the updated URL each time a node gets created. But I think your solutions makes more sense and reliable, we will check it and apply it. Thanks Marc!
