Name: Use Strict Friendly URLs
Type: Yes/No
Default: No
Available In: Revolution 2.2.3+

When friendly URLs are enabled, this option forces non-canonical requests that match a Resource to 301 redirect to the canonical URI for that Resource.

WARNING: Do not enable if you use custom rewrite rules which do not match at least the beginning of the canonical URI. For example, a canonical URI of foo/ with custom rewrites for foo/bar.html would work, but attempts to rewrite bar/foo.html as foo/ would force a redirect to foo/ with this option enabled
