The nodes are aliased automatically using the Pathauto module. E.g., node/448 is displayed as aliased/path.

Is it possible to alias node/448/edit to aliased/path/edit?

The Sub-path URL Aliases module will do this.

  • Thanks, that would work for node/nid/edit. I didn't know such module existed so i failed to be more detailed in my question. I have a custom menu local task for a certain node type. E.g. events/state-fair is an alias for a node of type event. It also has a custom local task for emailing attendees, but the resulting url is node/<nid>/email-attendees. I tested that module and it didn't set it to events/state-fair/email-attendees. The module's description doesn't mention that it works on custom sub paths so maybe i'm out of luck.

  • It your testing, did the standard node/edit path work? The module should work with custom local-tasks. For example, I've personally used it with organic groups (node/%node/broadcast), nodequeue (node/%node/nodequeue), and node clone (node/%node/clone). If you're still stuck perhaps posting your hook_menu code will help.

  • ah no, it didn't actually even work with the standard node/nid/edit where the node path is aliased. I'll investigate and updated this thread.

  • There's custom_url_rewrite pair of functions included in my settings.php from the Facebook module...i didn't see them because i was searching for the function name. Took another look searching only for rewrite and found the culprit. Thanks for helping!

It works perfectly for the SubPathAuto module. Just uncheck the Skip administration paths from sub-path processing option in admin/config/search/path/subpaths.

Delete existing aliases first admin/config/search/path/delete_bulk then go to admin/config/search/path/update_bulk, check all the options, and click update. If required clear cache.

However I realized that this method disables the overlay. But everything else works great.
