I remember seeing this module a while ago, but can't for the life of me finding it. What it did was to only allow a page to be accessible by a specific link you set for it. So, if you just entered the URL into your browser, you would be redirected to, say, your home page.

Does anyone recall this module?

  • That doesn't make sense. The difference between clicking a link and entering a URL should be none. And if it is, it's security by obscurity at best.

  • I believe it used some sort of tokening system on the referring link. Otherwise, if the url of the page is entered, you would get a 404.

  • So you're looking for a "temporary url" creator, and something that blocks access to the target pages unless referred by such a temporary url? Unfortunately I'm not familiar with such a module.

  • Yeah, something to that effect.

  • Are you sure you are not referring to a couple of modules? I cannot find a single module that redirect from a URL to another that uses tokens, but using two different modules you can get a redirect, and use tokens.

I remember doing something similar with the Rules module a while ago.

Take a look at the integrations for extended functionality - I think you can use the Tokens module with it.


I see 2 options:

  1. By keeping the url just using an alias: http://www.your-site.tld/admin/config/search/path/add

Existing system path * http://www.your-site.tld/node/NID (also=http://www.your-site.tld/lang/content/long-existing-url-blabla)
Path alias * http://www.your-site.tld/here

  1. Using a shortened url with the shorten module to create a url alias like yste.co/loc
