How to Generate URL Aliases using Pathauto in Drupal 8

Submitted by Rajasekhar on Sat, 12/08/2018 - 07:14

This allows you to have URL aliases like /category/my-node-title instead of /node/123. The aliases are based upon a "pattern" system that uses tokens which the administrator can change.

  • Token
  • CTools
