2. Create model and CRUD for it via Gii
3. Add method in the model Spage.php


```php
public function
getSpagefindByUrl($url) {
return $this->find('url=:url',array(':url'=>$url));
}
[...]
if(empty($_GET['view']))
$this->actionIndex();
$model = Spage::model()->
getSpagefindByUrl($_GET['view']); if ($model === NULL)
 
$this->actionIndex(
// if page is not found, then run a controller
 
if ($model === NULL)
 
Yii::app()->runController($controller
);
else
$this->render('pages/spage', array('model'=>$model));
[...]
so the address could simply be http://example.com/test

That's about it. Hope it's clear enough. Will update the article further to make it better. Happy coding'<view:[\w\-]+>'=>'site/page', now have priority over '<controller:[\w\-]+>'=>'<controller>/index' and the other rules with controller so if the static page is not found in the database, we will run a controller with that name Yii::app()->runController($controller);
 
 
7.. Now if you use the CMenu widget, you will notice that the static pages do not get highlighted on select. Here's a fix for that too. Create Menu.php file in /protected/components/ with:
 
 
```php 
class Menu extends CMenu{
 
protected function isItemActive($item,$route)
 
{
 
$pos=strpos(ltrim(Yii::app()->getRequest()->pathInfo,'/'),'/');
 
$route = $pos===false ? $pathInfo : substr($pathInfo,0,$pos);
 
return parent::isItemActive($item, $route);
 
}
 
}
 
```
 
Replace widgets.CMenu with widgets.Menu in your layout file/s.
 
 
That's about it. Hope it's clear enough. Will update the article further to make it better. Happy coding.
 
 
Update: Added controller execution on missing static page. Extended CMenu widget to highlight active static pages in the menu
