Is there any way to remove /Pages from URL.Currently, my page URL is ".com/pages/about-us" i want to change to ".com/about-us".I tried URL redirect method Navigation settings and edit the code from theme.liquid to like this,

{% if template contains 'collection' and current_tags %}
<meta name="robots" content="noindex" />
<link rel="canonical" href="{{ shop.url }}{{ collection.url }}" />
{% else %}
<link rel="canonical" href="{{ canonical_url }}" />
{% endif %}

Still it did not work. Please help me.Thank you.

Hi, what platform did you guys switch to? We are considering switching as well. The /pages URL looks so cheap.

See we pay for this service, we all invested heavily on it and Shopify makes a fortune with us.

Why are you thinking about moving? Lets demand and organize to get the features we need.
We at least need to have some logical very clear and technical explanation as to why things are the way they are.

Pros and Cons, all that.

We cant fathom a good explanation to have this url structure but we should be all ears, nevertheless its ridiculous that 14 pages later nothing as happened including in this latest Unite - a marketing campaign they had recently.

Shopify, do you not realize how extremely AMATEUR it looks to visitors to a site to see /pages - What are we back in 1999? Like hello? 

This will actually negatively affect conversions for every single user on shopify. Your product is inferior to others because of this terrible (forced) url structure.

Hi there,


Does this process have to be done via API or can it be done within the code via my Shopify account admin?


Thank you!

No, there is no any solution on this yet.

Does anyone know if we got this feature yet?


We've had the same thing waiting and and waiting - asking Shopify to implement a protection system on the cart so shoppers can't just check how much stock we have. Big brands have been caught out on this. 


Shopify I don't understand why we are waiting for basic functionality like this. We pay money for this service (some of us thousands in fees, subscriptions, themes, etc) and our business (which should be your priority) is just being forgotten.


I don't want to move to another ecommerce platform because I've spend years learning the ins and outs of Shopify. Can you guys just fix these really simple and basic issues. I remember I could set my own URLs back on my Piczo 12 years ago.
