The ft:prettyUrl metadata element is available for Author-it content. The metadata is defined as a variable.

- When creating pretty URLs manually, colons, question marks, brackets, at signs, and percent signs are forbidden. Exclamation points, dollar signs, ampersands, apostrophes, parentheses, plus signs, commas, semicolons, and equals signs are allowed. All other non-ASCII characters are displayed as percent-encoded.

- Author-It does not support ":" in variable names. The variable must be written ft_prettyUrl (with a " _"). The Author-it processing pipeline replaces the "_" with ":" while parsing the content.

The following image shows how to assign the ft_prettyUrl variable to an Author-It topic:
