TITAN CMS - Properties

URL Aliases

No more broken links!  If you add, update and delete carefully, you can have old URLs associated to your new URL.

If you want 301 redirect to the page inside Titan website you can use “alias”.

If you want 301 redirect outside the Titan instance, NWS will need to set redirect /rewrite rule on server level (in IIS).

 

Overview

No more broken links!  If you add, update and delete carefully, you can have old URLs associated to your new Page URL.  A new field has been added to the Properties' tab to support creating more than one URL for a content item.  URLs added in the URL Aliases list will all resolve to the Page URL defined for that item.  If you change a Item's Page URL, the *old version gets automatically put in the Alias list so that it links to that old URL and doesn't break (*This occurs when the change is published and the new version is activated). 

Steps
  1. Edit item and select Properties.
  2. Enter desired URL in the URL Aliases field.
    1. Validation:
      1. At most, one ? is allowed (it signals the beginning of the query string)
      2. No & or = before the query string delimiter (?)
      3. If defining a query string (?) you have to have parameters.  In other words, you can't just end with ? and have nothing after it.
      4. ? signals the beginning of the query string
      5. & separates the individual parameters
      6. Allows 259 inputs
  3. Select green + to save.
  4. Repeat as desired.
  5. Publish.
  6. * Able to change item's page URL and publish. *Prior Page URL should now be a URL Aliase.
