I am managing a site right now (Drupal 6) and the links are all coming out in the form http://example.com/blog/12553.

I'd like these urls to be based on the name of the article. I could swear that the site used to do this, but not sure at all where to find this setting or what might have gone wrong. I was looking into 'clean urls' but conclude that the urls are clean (Because they don't have PHP parameters), but I'm not sure.

I'm pretty familiar with PHP and programming... less familiar with Drupal

  • less familiar with Drupal not sure if you knew this already, but drupal 6 is no longer supported Drupal 6 end-of-life announcement – No Sssweat May 12 '16 at 3:45
  • I do know that. we're working on upgrading, but sometimes it's not as easy as hitting 'upgrade'. does that mean drupal 6 questions are not allowed here? – Damon May 12 '16 at 4:22
  • D6 Q's are still allowed, just wanted to make sure you knew about the EOL – No Sssweat May 12 '16 at 4:24

You should check to see if the pathauto module is installed. If not, I highly recommend downloading, installing and enabling it... It should make very short work of this.

Here's the link for d6


If it is already enabled... then you may have more trouble as the d6 version is no longer maintained... so you may need to do some troubleshooting of this module.
