Pathauto is a module which lets you automate the generation of URL aliases in Drupal. Instead of the URL being “/node/123”, you can have “/blog/article/why-use-drupal”.
The module allows you to define custom patterns which are generated when an entity is created.
URL aliases or URL slugs, help with search engine optimization and they’re more user-friendly.
Drupal core has supported URL aliases for a long time, but they weren’t automatically generated. Pathauto helps with automating the process.
In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to create aliases and patterns, and how to bulk generate paths.
