Question

In Mura, when a page is edited, the URL changes in such a way that /about-us/ becomes /about-us1/ which then breaks any existing links to /about-us/ unless we put in a 301 redirect.

Mura: Core Version 5.6.4982 Site Version 5.6.4938

Is there a setting in Mura that will stop this behavior from occurring so that /about-us/ will remain as we intended? I've tried googling the topic but either there is not a setting or I'm not using the right search terms.

UPDATED
I contacted the user reporting the problem and here is their response (edited to protect the innocent):


Last week when this occurred, I was editing a pre-existing page. However, it also happened today when I created a new page from the About Parent and the link to the "In the News" section didn’t work.


End of reply

@HPWD,

You can only have one page within a section of a site with the same URL title. For example:

  • /about-us/ ~ this would be a page located directly under the "Home" page.
  • /about-us1/ ~ if you see this, either there is or was another page under the "Home" page called "About Us".

I would suggest checking the Site Settings > "Trash Bin" if you don't see another page called "About Us" in the site tree. My guess would be that there was another page, and someone created a new one, and then deleted the original one.

Once you empty the Trash Bin, you can then update the URL Title field to remove the appended digit, and then save the content again.
