    HI both, this has been bugging us for a while but we've found a way around it.

    We wanted to add it to an existing site and have the posts sit under the same url structure that they are at the moment i.e. /blog/post-name.

    To do this we have:

    1. Installed Articulate
    2. Added the Articulate blog at the root of the site so it sits along site the main domain's parent node
    3. Renamed "Archive" to "Blog"
    4. Added a content picker property to the "Archive" Document Type "umbracoInternalRedirectId"
    5. Set the umbracoInternalRedirectId to the root (original) "Blog" node

    This way Umbraco will show the content from "Blog" on what was the "Archive" page (so you have your posts listed.

    Due to the way that Umbraco works out it's urls, this will work as long as none of the other nodes at level 1 have a "blog" node...

    That doesn't seem to work...the value is appended to /archive/ rather than replacing it... so /archive/post/ becomes the Link To Document field. Umbraco 7.4

    Would definitely like to avoid a workaround like Tim's solution if the functionality is already built into the Articulate core.

    Hi CB, I can assure you that changing the umbracoUrlName i mentioned above works, just have a look at my blog:

    I don't know what you specific setup is and what your exact issue is, can you please explain.

    Hi @ShannonDeminick,

    Very vanilla 7.4 build with a few common packages that shouldn't get in the way of Articulate.

    The only uniqueness on our end is cloning a theme (Mini) and then altering the List and Post views to inherit from our own Master template because we use the blog engine as a section within the parent site rather than as a stand-alone website.

    Do the Themes have any logic that might affect the functionality? I assume that logic would be tucked away in the DLLs which we aren't smart enough to touch =)!

    And I should clarify we're trying to do what Paul originally mentioned...completely remove the /archive segment from all article urls, not simply rename it.

    rather than

    Maybe Tim's solution is the most straightforward workaround?

    I think that is better than for SEO and archive segment is not util.

    Has anyone figured this out? I want to remove one directory title from the url when articulate is integrated into an existing website (i.e. with a homepage):"article-name"

    I want to remove the "archive" portion, or if that's not possible, and renaming is the only way to solve this, then I would like to remove the "articulate" portion.

    I can't seem to find a way to do this based on the way the articulate doc type is set up and file structure is. From what I understand, it must be as so:

    -Homepage - Articulate -->Archive -->Authors

    To those who still needs solution to this, you can simply download Virtual Nodes and set the Archive node to be invisible in your web config's app settings. Download it here:
