Naming Conventions - Article or Articles?

What do you recommend as effective naming conventions for my Content Types and Pages?

Here’s an example:
So I create a landing page for all my articles (/articles) from which I can get to any individual article (/articles/brave-new-world). Meanwhile I have a single pages for About and Careers.

How to name everything?

Take a rails like approach and name around the underlying routes:
Articles (For single Article Landing Page)
Article (For the repeating article pages)

Alternativley:
Articles Home
Article

Or maybe some other approach.
What naming challenges have you had? How have you addressed them?

Looking for tips before I go and build out my whole site and realise I maybe would have been better to use a different convention with the benefit of hindsight.

Hi Team,

Welcome to the community!

The naming convention that you suggested her is this best way to go in my opinion:

Then for you URL structure you would use the link resolver to create the desired paths.

Here’s an example of how it would work for your use case:

export default function (doc) {
  if (doc.isBroken) {
    return '/not-found'
  }
  if (doc.type === 'articles_home') {
    return `/articles`
  }
  if (doc.type === 'article') {
    return `/articles/${doc.uid}`
  }
  return null
}

Let me know if this makes sense.

Thanks.
