I have setup multiple new view modes for a specific node. Full,Teaser,New Teaser,Custom Display.

Is there a way to view the same node with different URLS for the different view modes. Please let me know if i need to explain further.

Hopefully this makes some kind of sense.

If you would be okay with having a parameter in the url control your view mode then you can add this code to your custom module using hook_entity_view_mode_alter().

For example:




 * Implements hook_entity_view_mode_alter().
function my_module_entity_view_mode_alter(&$view_mode, $context) {
  // If there is a view_mode parameter in the url change the view mode to it.
  if (isset($_GET['view_mode'])) {
    $view_mode = $_GET['view_mode'];

You can do this with View Mode Page

Create separate pages for different view modes for a given content type.

On the manage display page for a given content type, you can assign patterns for view modes so that they will become a page at the given path. For instance, if you want to show the teaser at a specific URL, you could do node/%/teaser. If you also use Display Suite or other modules that allow you to create new view modes, you can use these modes to display one or more fields from a node at a separate URL.

Or you can use Panels also.

Or a custom module could do this as well but no sense in reinventing the wheel :)
