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

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.
