Do you know how to resolve the broken links caused by page renaming?

Last updated by William Yin on 01 Sep 2015 01:51 am (almost 6 years ago) See History

Renaming pages in SharePoint site will cause broken links. All requests to the old URL will be responded to with a 404 error.

Options to resolve this issue are:

  • Add a page every time for a rename…. add a JavaScript or META tag redirect to the original page
  • Use custom 404 page to look at a list in SharePoint, the list contains all the renaming records, the records are automatically maintained via page updating events handler. (We are using this way)
  • Wait for MS to fix the problem - support classical alternative links for a page.
