I too have changed the page name to http://www.sassysscoffs.co.uk/wholesale and it reads - http://www.sassysscoffs.co.uk/#!wholesale/c2269 - This really is unaccpetable especially when there's the option to choose the page name! Why offer this option? It looks extremely unprofessional and had I known this I would not have changed to WIX.

I am just getting started and I used the "Single post" page to fill some content in. Can I change the name of this page. It does not give me the option to when I go through the page settings.

Here is an example of a page from our website:
Unfortunately the letters at the end of the address (which I assume are automatically generated) are Cow1, which on the profile of a woman, are unacceptable. How can these be changed or deleted?

Hi, just wondering what the point of having the 'page address' option on the page settings is if the address is still going to be something completely different. Like other commenters, we frequently direct clients and subscribers to our site and it looks VERY unprofessional to give them this link:
instead of this link:
Is this something Wix is working on? I wish I'd known this was going to be an issue before we switched our servers over to Wix.

Is it that hard to answer the question why doesn't Wix website pages have the "hashbang" and "page ID"? Why do our page addresses have to look spammy and unprofessional, the "hashbang" and "page ID" do just that. Put them in your own page names and see how you feel.

As many of the people have mentioned, I need a simpler way to name my pages without all the hashtags. This seems very simple. I have been using wix for some time now and just switched to the new "improved" editor. However, it is not at all improved when you can't make such as simple and critical change in a page's name. How is this possible? How do you expect to keep serious clients with such an obtuse page naming system? When will it be simplified like every other service? I like Wix, but not being able to make life easy for my customers is a huge problem. Businesses live and die based on the simplicity of their page name and you have effectively made that impossible. When can we expect a fix for this most ridiculous bug?

Page URLs are still an issue (hasbangs and extraneous characters). I know about deep linking and AJAX, so please do not copy & paste that default answer.
My question is: why does Wix.com does not have hashbangs in the page URLs?
It seems a solution has been found. Why is it not being implemented?
Please answer in a timely fashion or my service will definitely be lost. The nonprofit sector does not have extra $ to throw on websites we can't effectively market (with ugly URLs). We need clean/concise URLs to point constituents, donors, and audiences to.

We currently have our website with GoDaddy, but will transfer it to Wix in the near future. As part of the move, we're revamping the entire site using the great Wix capabilities. We use Google Analytics and have relied on it for our web stats. The problem is: our old site used a page naming convention like "industrial_manufacturing." Note the use of the underscore. When I tried to use this convention with Wix, an error message was presented saying that "_" is an illegal character. If we change our naming convention, we'll lose continuity of our Google Analytics data. Is there a workaround that will permit us to use our old page naming convention?
