Helps users generate a Pages Module URI by selecting a parent page and automatically pulling the URL Title from the entry.
The built-in ExpressionEngine Pages module is, well, just a bit clunky.
How do you tell your client what a Page URI is, and why they need to have
that in addition to a URL Title? “What’s the difference,” they might ask.
Page Helper is here to make the Pages module just a little more friendly.
When your client creates a new entry, two new fields and a button are added
just above the Pages URI field, no matter what tab it’s on.
The first field has a list of all the existing pages in the site. Select a page
from the menu to use as a parent page, prepending that page’s URI to the new
The second field represents the last segment of the Page URI. It automatically
duplicates the URL title by default, but the user can change it anything
Lastly, click the Update Page URL button, and the two fields will be combined
together and inserted into the Page URI field.
There’s no configuration, and the only requirement is that the Pages module is
installed first. The rest just works.
- Ensure that the Pages module is installed.
- Unzip the downloaded file, and drop the pagehelper folder into system/expressionengine/third_party/
- Click Add-ons -> Accessories
- Click install next to Page Helper
Note: Page Helper is not designed to be a replacement for the popular Structure or Taxonomy add-ons. It merely helps generate a URI and makes no changes to the actual function of the Pages Module or its interaction with templates.

Really helpful little add-on that makes structuring your URLs that much easier. If you’re looking for something fully featured, go with Structure, but this is perfect for the times when you need a simple URI field. Plus, clients love it.
Kyle Cotter 11.30.10
For the times when Structure is too much, but you want a nice upgrade to the pages module for the ease of your clients, this is the way to go!
