Hackable URLs on the docs site

G’day:
I just hit the docs site to look up something, and just edited the URL my browser remembered from:

http://docs.lucee.org/reference/functions/refind.html

To

http://docs.lucee.org/reference/tags/cfexit.html

This 404ed. Why? Because the URL is:
http://docs.lucee.org/reference/tags/exit.html

But the tag name isn’t “exit”, it’s “cfexit”. So that’s what I’d expect to put in the URL if I was hacking it. I also wonder if there is any SEO consideration to be had here? “cfexit” would probably have better SEO weight than simply “exit”?

Is there any reason you don’t use the full tag name?

This is fairly inconsequential, I know.

Cheers.

PS: your 404 page is unstyled, and spews out telemetry type stuff. Dunno if you know that. (or care, etc)

FYI, I’ve just raised a ticket for the 404 page issue:
