I had installed pathauto module and it was generating desired url alias. But now its not working. All the newly created node shows node/node->nid. This issue stops working of my drupal_get_path_alias function i added in views template. Can anyone help me out.

  • The issue is with a single content type. If i made a bulk url update using pathauto, it works. Is there way to add bulk update in cron jobs. – drup Apr 9 '15 at 6:19

I fixed the issue by commenting $form['additional_settings']['#access'] = false; line in my template.php. Still i don't know why that issue happens for a single content type.


There might be some problem with redirects. To overcome this problem, follow below steps:

  1. Go to URL: admin/config/search/path/delete_bulk
  2. Select option to delete all aliases.enter image description here
  3. Go to URL : admin/config/search/path
  4. See if there are no aliases left, if any left delete them too. enter image description here
  5. If you have redirect module installed, go to URL: admin/config/search/redirect and delete all redirects if any.enter image description here
  6. Recreated all URL aliases, go to URL: admin/config/search/path/update_bulk and select desired URL aliases to be created.enter image description here

    See if problem is fixed. If you still have issues comment below.

  • I didn't installed any re-direct module. But i deleted all allias and re created. Still issue exists. – drup Apr 9 '15 at 11:12

  • Don't just disable, do complete uninstall and install again – Himanshu Pathak Apr 10 '15 at 5:49
