Setting page aliases in content only pages

Content only pages in Kentico allow you to define a page alias as part of their URL. Page alias is a part of a URL that identifies a page using human-readable keywords. Usually, page alias is something that describes the content it identifies. One of the motivations for using page aliases to identify pages is to improve the site’s SEO.

For example, a page alias for an article that talks about coffee brewing techniques could be defined as “coffee-brewing-techniques”. The way page aliases are used on your website will depend on how you want the URLs of content on your site to look.

To define a page page alias in content only pages

  1. Open the Pages application.
  2. Click on the page for which you want to define a page alias. This needs to be a content only page.
  3. Click on Properties -> Page alias.
  4. Enter a page alias in the Page alias field.
  5. Save.

The page now uses the defined page alias as it’s identifier.
