Is there any way to redirect old URL alias to the new URL alias?

I want example.com/good-news to redirect to example.com/good-news-index, automatically.

You can use redirect module to redirect url from "old url" to "new url".

This module allows you to specify a redirect from one path to another path or an external URL

There is also global redirect module which provide the same functionality.

  • Checks the current URL for an alias and does a 301 redirect to it if it is not being used.
  • Checks the current URL for a trailing slash, removes it if present and repeats check 1 with the new request.
  • Checks if the current URL is the same as the site_frontpage and redirects to the frontpage if there is a match.
  • Checks if the Clean URLs feature is enabled and then checks the current URL is being accessed using the clean method rather than the
    'unclean' method.
  • Checks access to the URL. If the user does not have access to the path, then no redirects are done. This helps avoid exposing private
    aliased node's.
  • Make sure the case of the URL being accessed is the same as the one set by the author/administrator. For example, if you set the alias
    "articles/cake-making" to node/123, then the user can access the
    alias with any combination of case.
  • Most of the above options are configurable in the settings page. In Drupal 5 you can access this after enabling the globalredirect_admin
    module. In Drupal 6, the settings page is bundled into the module

In Drupal 6 their is one more module Path redirect, which adds one more option "Create a new alias. Redirect from old alias." in URL alias-> Automated alias setting -> General setting.

If this option is set, then whenever alias is changed/updated this module will redirect from old alias to new alias.

  • Yes, this should work with pathauto end redirect(check "Automatically create redirects when URL aliases are changed."). The Path redirect module name becomes Redirect Feb 13, 2017 at 13:59
