From reading the module description, I get the impression that the Match redirect module module only replaces wildcards and cannot remove them.

I suggest you try redirect module with pathauto. After you change the path in pathauto, remember to use the BULK UPDATE tab to update the urls. Redirect will automatically do it's thing.

  • But the reason I was looking into Match Redirect was that I could batch change those. Your recommendation seems to be for me to change each of of those individually. Am I correct? or is there a way to batch change all pages under /my-path-1/my-path-2/ to /my=path-2/? Jan 11, 2016 at 14:35
  • Using Pathauto bulk update will batch them for you. As redirect will auto add them.

  • Just to make it clear, I do want to keep both paths as in: /my-path-1/my-path-2/page-title AND /my-path-2/page-title for about 800 odd pages. How can I use Pathauto for that? Jan 12, 2016 at 11:53
  • pathauto + redirect. Backup your db, try my answer, and get back to me.
