I have been recommended to try either Freeway or Router to handle some non-standard URLs that I solved with .htaccess rewrites on EE 1 but where those no longer work on EE 2.
In one case, I need to remove a non-default template group from URLs. In another case, I need to remove part of a Page URI.
Freeway, I am told, would handle both scenarios. Would Router?
It also appears that Router uses a config file instead of storing its settings within EE. Is there any non-subjective reason to prefer one method over the other, in terms of efficiency, for example?
