With Pathauto, is it possible to use the url of a node's term as a token?

In case it makes a difference im using the Taxonomy Menu module aswell. Thanks

UPDATE - The taxonomy is hierarchical. So if I have:


Then if a node is tagged with 'Margareta' I need the path to be:



Taxonomy terms are attached to nodes using term reference fields in Drupal 7. As such, you have access to the term reference field just like any other in the list of replacement tokens.

Look for fields related to the node with a description of "Term reference field", e.g.

To address your edit, I know it looks ridiculous but something like this will probably work (using field_school as an example):


Here's another screenshot showing the extra data available for term reference fields in pathauto:

  • Ive updated my question. Your solution only adds the last term to the url and I have a hierarchical taxonomy structure. Thanks – Evanss Apr 12 '12 at 15:15
  • Make sure you've got the Token module installed and have a look at this post, it's got the answer you're looking for :) – Clive Apr 12 '12 at 15:23
  • Ive used that answer to get the urls working properly for the terms, however I cant get them working for the nodes. Thanks – Evanss Apr 12 '12 at 15:37
  • @jdln I've updated the answer, hope it helps – Clive Apr 12 '12 at 15:43
  • [node:field_tax] returns the node's term, but none of the terms parents. – Evanss Apr 12 '12 at 16:00
