I'm having difficulty on a fresh Drupal installation getting the menu to use an alias (let's say "foo") rather than "node/#" link. The alias works when I type it straight into my browser. When creating the menu, I specified the alias (foo) but it automatically applies the system path to it.
The message that comes up is:
The menu system stores system paths only, but will use the URL alias for display. home has been stored as node/1
This doesn't come up as an error, rather just an information dialogue.
For this installation I did a minimal install as I wanted it to be a fairly simple website. I've never done this before so there were a few modules I had to enable to get it working how I wanted. I'm thinking maybe there's a module or menu setting that isn't enabled by default using the minimal install.
I'm not using any language packs, and none of the solutions on the following questions were successful (most revolve around languages.)
