This documentation applies to QuantumCMS version 5.
An Alias is an alternate URL for a page on your web site. You can create an Alias for the old address of a page that has been moved so users will be redirected if they attempt to access the old address. You can also use an Alias to create a short URL for a page so you can reference it more easily in a marketing campaign, email, or on Twitter.
When you move a page, you can easily create an Alias for the old address. If you move the page using the Navigation Tree, you will be prompted with a dialog box. Otherwise, if you move a page using the Child Pages tab, you will need to check the box below the Destination Page field.
Additionally, you can create an Alias manually on any page.
Using the Navigation Tree, select the page where you want to add an Alias.
Select Aliases from the Properties menu.
Click the Add button to add a new Alias.
Enter the address of the new alias in the Alias field, making sure to leave the leading slash (“/”) in place.
Enter a Comment (not required, but useful to help remind you in the future why you added this alias).
Press Save when complete.
