Add-On Type(s)

Extension, Plugin


Control your URLs by remapping URI routes to a specific HTTP response, using CodeIgniter-style routing rules.


  • You need to break out of the template_group/template_name paradigm of traditional EE routing
  • You need to nest urls on a Structure/Pages URI (pagination, categories, etc.)
  • You need to point multiple url patterns to a single template
  • You need custom JSON/HTML endpoints that do not warrant a full EE template
  • You want to remove excess conditional logic in your templates

An example router configuration:

$config['resource_router'] = array(
    'blog/:pagination' => 'blog/index',
    'blog/:category_url_title/:pagination' => 'blog/_category_index',
    'blog/:url_title' => 'blog/_detail',

NOTE: ExpressionEngine 2.6+ or ExpressionEngine 3.0+ and PHP 5.3+ are required

Resource Router ended a month-long quest to sanitise my 404 handling - now everything is clean and CE Cache has only valid entries. Thanks Rob!

This is now a must have in our builds. Advanced routing options defined in config files. Genius…

We prefer to have our routes defined in a config file rather than the control panel, so this is our go-to for routing. Very well executed, as is everything by Rob.

An absolutely brilliant add-on. Removing messy routing logic from your templates and keeping it all in one place makes your templates leaner, more legible and modular. An essential part of my toolkit now.
