I have taxonomy named Category with two terms: News and Articles.

Articles term has custom url alias - /useful.

The website was upgaded from D7 to D9. On old D7 version node url pattern was [node:field_categories]/[node:title]

On D9 it is the same pattern, BUT instead of /useful/node-title it dispalays /articles/node-title

Maybe it is not a big deal, but after porting to D9 I would like to maintain current URL structure without changing it radically.

I've tried some other tokens, for example [node:field_categories:entity:url], but it displays absolute path to term with domain and https after slash like site.com/https://site.com/taxonomy-alias which is incorrect.

How to fix this?

  • Are you sure the token is the same?

Finally, found an answer!

The correct token for D8/9 is [node:field_categories:entity:url:path]

I don't know why, but it is not listed in available tokens.
