I can generate urls to forum topics fine, but pathauto appears to be stubbornly refusing to generate urls for Forums and containers no matter what patterns I try to use.
I even tried to alias them in core alias - as suggested for Drupal 7 here - but aside from the fact that the pages then returned 404 results I will probably have users adding forums in the future so really need to be in a position to generate them.
I want my forum urls to be of the form
/private/discussion/forum-name and I would like to be able to have my container point to
/private/discussion and see a list of the available forums there. Or at least alias the main forum output page.
