Creating URL aliases
URL aliases are URLs with short, simple names that redirect to a specified page on a website. These are useful because they usually look neater than full URLs and are easier to remember. Rather than telling people to visit http://www.my-site.com/index.php?src=events&category=Trainings, for example, you could tell them to visit http://www.my-site.com/trainings. The short URL in this example would direct visitors to the longer one.
To set up a URL alias:
- Go to the Configuration Module, Human Readable URLs tab.
- Click the Create a URL Alias button.
- Enter a name in the Alias Name field.
- You can either manually enter a URL in the URL field or use the Link Wizard by clicking the Change/Add button. Click here for information on using the Link Wizard.
- Click Save.
