Exercise 7.1 - Update a page's URL alias

In this exercise you will learn how to update a page’s URL alias.

  1. Add a Page: From the Admin menu click on Content, then hover over Add content and click on Page.

  2. Fill out the fields as shown in the screenshot below, such as Title. On the right-hand side of the form, click to expand the URL Alias section.

  3. Uncheck Generate automatic URL Alias.

  4. Make sure the 'URL alias' field is empty.

  5. Set the Save As dropdown to Published.

  6. Click on the Save button at the bottom of the page.

  7. Navigate to the page you saved - note the URL.

Your content should have a URL like: http://example.com/node/100

In this example “node/100” is the internal Drupal path for the page. The number "100" is a unique number that Drupal uses to store information about this specific page. In Drupal, this is called the "node ID". Each page will have a different number. The number "100" will be different on your site.

Note down this URL for the next exercise.
