With vanity urls, using a wrapper (CSElement + SiteEntry) that is cached and using the wrapper siteentry with default "Cache Criteria: rendermode,site,sitepfx,seid", when rendering any page using a template, it will show the last cached page and if trying to navigate to another page clicking from the "last cached page" or directly requesting a different vanity url, page will not be rendered (same cached content will remain on the page) but url in the browser address bar will change.

For example, by accessing http://hostname:port/sites/avi/home.htm, it will show the content, but if you click on any other link from the page that has a vanity url, the same home content will remain on the page but the url will change in the address bar to reflect the page that should be loaded such as http://hostname:port/sites/avi/skiiing.htm.
