This should be pretty simple, but what would be the best way to set up a 301 redirect to the latest post of a node type, for example.

For example: example.com/blog/latest -> example.com/node/*

Ehat I was originally was doing was using views, getting the path of the latest post (+ random, also in views) and rewrite the results with a simple <a href="[path]">Latest</a>.

But, since I need to include this in email message, a URL is desired (as well as adding Google Analytics UTM Parameters).

What would be the simplest, site builder way to do this?

  • You probably don't want a 301 redirect (Moved Permanently) since you don't intend to permanently associate /blog/latest with a given node. Alternatively, display the latest blog post at /blog/latest using a view or the "Smart Node Links" module recommended by 2pha.
