I have taxonomy terms from A-Z and each article can belong to multiple terms.

for an example, when I create a new article, I have a multi select list for terms. Therefore a particular node should work for multiple URLs.


Please let me know if this can be achieved using a contributed module or can it be built with a custom module?

  • It's a very easy task to create aliases. Do you need to create aliases during node save? Do they already exist? How does a user get to each alias? Should the URL be built for the user via form (or some other dynamic method)?? Apr 23, 2019 at 17:09
  • Hi, I know the process of creating aliases. My problem is when a node is assigned to 2 or more categories, the URL becomes example.com/categories/a-g/planning instead creating 2 alises, one for example.com/categories/a/planning and another for example.com/categories/g/planning May 3, 2019 at 6:53

You can use pathauto module. After installing the pathauto module, please configure the path of article content type from here admin/config/search/path/patterns.

Note: To use pattern require token module.
Then use like following pattern:

  • I have used pathauto and tokens within the site. However, as I mentioned earlier my problem is when a node belongs to 2 or more categories. Then the alias becomes example.com/categories/a-g/planning instead of creating multiple aliases such as one for example.com/categories/a/planning and one for example.com/categories/g./planning May 3, 2019 at 6:51
