By default CMS Made Simple™ creates a "technical" URL like www.website.com/index.php?page=contact
It is functional, but it lacks aesthetic value. Pretty, or Search Engine Friendly URL is a feature for improving the appearance of the URL and it also improves search engine indexing!
How to use
1. Copy the "htaccess.txt" file from the CMSMS™ /doc directory to the root of your website.
2. Rename the copied file to .htaccess including the dot!
3. Add to the bottom of your config.php the line:
$config['url_rewriting'] = 'mod_rewrite';
4. Check if the head section of your Core::Page template contains the metadata tag:

You have to look for the file htaccess.txt in the docs folder, not the .htaccess one!
