I have the Pathauto module, and I want to have the 'Automatic alias' checkbox selected by default for the new content types I create.

Is there a way to obtain this?

After you define the pattern of the content type path, it will be checked automatically when you add the node of that content type.

The path is admin/config/search/path/patterns.

  • as i have a multilanguage site, instead of setting a single pattern for each language, i set the pattern for italian Pages, and leaved blank the pattern of english pages because i set the 'Default path pattern for Page (applies to all Pagina base content types with blank patterns below)' - so i think this should cause every page in any language to have that checkbox checked by default. this could be a bug?
