I want to create a path alias pattern like [base_url][title] and overwrite the existing path alias for a specific content type. Also, all the nodes are redirected to the new custom alias.

e.g., existing alias pattern is A/B/C and the generated url is www.test.com/de/A/B/C - Need to convert into www.test.com/C where de is language code here.

What approach should I take?

  • Use the Redirect module – Kevin Dec 18 '17 at 12:59
  • I do not want to give the access to redirect module to the End-user, need to do programmatically or any other configuration. – latikas Dec 18 '17 at 13:21
  • So don’t give them access to it? It’s permission based. – Kevin Dec 18 '17 at 13:51

    @latikas, Pathauto can redirect old aliases when generating new ones. But it can't remove a language prefix, because this is handled separately by language detection. – 4k4 Dec 18 '17 at 18:59
  • Thanks for your reply, instead of Pathauto module any alternative solution? Using pathauto module, we need to add redirect urls manually. – latikas Dec 19 '17 at 5:37
