This is by design as archiving a content item keeps the content item in the system. If the content item is deleted the aliases will be deleted. A possible workaround for this issue if you need to prevent the aliases from working is to use a content strategy. In the strategy you can detect the event that is firing off for the content.

To resolve the issue either upgrade to Besides this error, another reason to reduce the aliasing is having a high number of alias. One especially helpful tool that can help users understand what content is included on a page and where they are in the site’s navigation is aliasing. Let’s look at how aliasing is handled in the Ektron CMS: When you create content in Ektron, it automatically has a link that doesn’t really mean much to a user. To make it more clear what the user can expect to see when clicking on the link, you can use aliasing.By going to the “Alias” tab of any content page, you can simply type in exactly what you want the alias to be. This feature gives you full control over the alias.Automatic aliasing will create more meaningful aliases for you behind the scenes as you create content pages. To setup an automatic alias, you will first need to enable automatic aliasing in the Ektron Workarea by following these steps: Here are the differences between taxonomy based and folder based alias definitions: Once this is set up, whenever you create content in the Workarea, it will automatically be given an alias of the current folder path and the title of your content.The difference is that they use the taxonomy path instead of the folder path when automatically creating an alias.In general, it’s a good idea to setup automatic aliasing for folder and content title, because that is typically the format that you will want your aliases to use, since it helps users understand where pages are located within the site’s navigation. It saves a lot of time and effort to set up an automatic aliasing rule of some kind so that the aliases are created for you. If you don’t set one up, you will have to define a manual alias for every piece of content you create.

This method would be used if you want each alias to be more meaningful. You should use a manual alias when you want to be very specific on what the alias says. There are other aspects of aliasing to consider as well, such as how the selected aliases can affect Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

Our free SEO health check can help you identify issues that make Google unhappy with your site. Next, you specify the content to appear whenever anyone enters the URL using that name into a browser address field.To change its state, click Edit ( ), check or uncheck the box, and click Save ( ). If you only assign one, it is the primary by default. It also appears in the browser address field after the content is selected. See Example of an Alias in the Browser. See Also: Adding a Manual Alias via the Alias Tab You can filter aliases by alias name, Content ID, etc. Click Edit ( ). Only active aliases can be entered into the browser address field to display the assigned content. If you want to inactivate a primary alias, first assign another alias to be the primary for this content block. Then, return to this screen and make this alias inactive. Alternatively, you can delete a primary alias. See Also: Primary Also, it must be unique within this site and language. Select one to apply to this alias. Extensions are defined on the URL Aliasing Configuration screen. See Also: Extension The QuickLink Select window appears. You may have to scroll down to see the content. These are used as query string parameters that can track how visitors arrived at the aliased page. You might use these for marketing campaigns, to analyze the source of an aliased page’s visitors.

Your Web site's analytics software can track the source of the query through the variable. You can use that tab to view and update the content’s primary alias. Also, it must be unique within this site and language. Select one to apply to this manual alias.

You cannot uncheck Primary from this screen. If secondary aliases exist and you want to delete or replace the primary alias, you must use the Manual Aliased Page Name Maintenance screen. See Also: Removing Manual Alias via the Page Name Maintenance Screen You can only delete the primary alias if no secondary aliases exist. Does anyone know the current best practice for retrieving these aliases? I am doing that now, but they are a bit labyrinthine so i figured i would see if someone knew off the top of their head- seems like a function of the CMS one would need frequently. The manager does work as expected, returning all associated aliases, when using the Alias Criteria objects located in 'Ektron.Cms.Settings.UrlAliasing.DataObjects.AliasCriteria'. Objects returned are generic to alias type, and will indicate if they are a default with the isDefault property. Please be sure to answer the question. Provide details and share your research. Making statements based on opinion; back them up with references or personal experience. To learn more, see our tips on writing great answers. But then a thought occurs to me. So like any well-intentioned thing, it broke. Every time we’d introduce a new template, replication broke down because of the record changes. Our SQL admin had to rebuild the replication, updates wouldn’t get pushed, it wasn’t pleasant. Here’s where things got weird. When we looked at the site on internal addresses (10.0.0.XXX) everything looked perfect. But when we used the external addresses, we were getting our error page.

Looking at the error log on the server, it was saying our homepage didn’t exist. After batting it around, and making sure the “real” page worked (the direct call to the wireframe with the pageid variable), I tried one other thing. I changed one of our other major pages’ manual alias with another page. So why did this not work with.aspx? I’m not honestly sure. It could be some other caching going on with.aspx somewhere that we didn’t know about (browser caching was off, no IIS or IP caching, so ???). It could be some quirk in Ektron 8.02 that no one’s aware of, but I doubt that, since it worked internally. Fact is, we made this change and there’s been no problem since. So, if you’re using.aspx for manual alias extensions (or any alias), I’d advise you to not do that. Besides, isn’t one of the great things about aliasing the ability to hide those file extensions anyway. Especially if you have to tell someone what website to go to, you don’t want to say “.aspx” because they’ll look at you funny anyway! Anything here is my own and doesn't represent the opinions of my employer. Just so that's clear.:). Use of words and phrases that actually define the page increases an aliases’ search engine rankings. If you follow a pattern, you can scale your aliases across your sites as they grow. Search engines find URL aliases generated by Ektron. Ektron caches aliases to improve performance of your site. Its syntax draws upon C, Java, and Perl, and is easy to learn. The main goal of the language is to allow web developers to write dynamically generated web pages quickly, but you can do much more with PHP. (Source: us2.php.net) site, alias PHP pages and use the same query string names to pass needed information to the new.aspx pages. Aliasing keeps old links valid and you do not have to make changes to web.config. When URL aliasing is configured and enabled, content inherits the new aliasing structure.

You can assign several manual aliases to content then decide which one is the primary alias A primary alias is the default link for a content item. So when elements, controls, widgets, or custom code on your page render links to content items, the default link is rendered to the browser.. If multiple alias types are provided for a content item, you can enter any alias into the browser address field to access that content. See Creating a Manual URL Alias. When you add content to any of the following types, it inherits the URL alias rules. See Creating Automatic URL Alias Rules. Taxonomy —create an alias that is based on the taxonomy a content-level categorization system that uses one-to-many relationships (such as Ronald Reagan is to Actor, Governor, and President) to create a scalable organization of content. A taxonomy lets your site visitors navigate content independent of the folder structure.Because the alias is based on taxonomy, you can have multiple aliases that have relevancy to multiple search criteria. Folder —create an alias that is based on the CMS folder structure. Descriptive folder names and a well-organized folder structure makes a URL more relevant to the content’s actual location. User —create an alias using the name of a user in the URL.See Creating RegEx Expressions. You use this alias when you need to add, change, or modify an existing URL. See Creating a URL Redirect. Then, click Edit. Also, If you enable or disable any alias type or caching, you must run a full crawl of your Search Server. See Also: Managing the Search Crawl See Creating a URL Redirect. See Creating a Manual URL Alias.

If this box is checked, the alias appears instead of the template.URL does not exist in site visitor's current language: 404 File Not Found appears. On (checked)— URL exists in the site visitor's current language: show target. URL does not exist in site visitor's current language: If the URL exists in a language listed in the language fallback chain: show target. (See Setting the Fallback Locale.) If the URL does not exist in the language fallback chain, but does exist in the site default: show target. If the URL does not exist in the language fallback chain, and does not exist in the site default, but exists as an alias in any language: get the first URL match and show target. If the URL does not exist in the language fallback chain, and does not exist in the site default, and does not exist as an alias in any language: 404 File Not Found appears. You can specify replacement characters for other characters in the Replacement Character Map on the Add Aliasing Rule screen. You can set one rule for your entire site (via this field), and separate ones that override the system-wide rule for specific manual aliases (using the Aliases screen). The following options are available. None —If an aliased URL has a query string, it is ignored. Any query string on the target URL is used. Replace All Parameters within Alias —replaces a target’s query parameters with the alias’ s query parameter. Example: Alias: Target: Result. If a match is found, the alias’s query string parameter takes precedence.For example, the first page is default.aspx. If found, that page displays. If not, it looks for the second page listed, and so on.This role can however be removed to further restrict the permissions to the CMS User state. The following Ektron Knowledge Base article analyzes this problem and presents solutions: Avoiding Style Problems, JavaScript Errors, and Broken Images When Using URL Aliasing. A taxonomy lets your site visitors navigate content independent of the folder structure.

) If you assign a page, it is used in the product’s URL, not the alias. It can be managed like native Ektron content. s. Instead, the actual file name appears. If a site visitor hovers the cursor over HTML content, the alias does appear. Instead, the actual file name appears. If a template is assigned to a taxonomy, the template takes precedence over an alias for content found by a Directory server control. —Image— Right click your website. Click Handler Mappings. Click View Ordered List. So, do not enter them into the Extension field of the URL Aliasing Settings screen. —Image— Right click your website. Click Handler Mappings. Click View Ordered List. Enter the extensions in the Extension field of the URL Aliasing Settings screen. See Also: Types of URL Aliasing You should periodically clear the cache so that aliases are kept current. See Also: the Enable Language Awareness field in Configuring URL Aliasing. To do this, select the content, language, go to the Alias tab, and assign a language-specific alias. For example, your English home page’s alias is default, while your Spanish alias is defecto. So, for example, you cannot have 2 aliases named Ektron within U.S. English content. But, you can have 2 two aliases named Ektron if one is applied to U.S. English content, and the other applies to Spanish content. Ektron lets you sort and filter the aliases to make it easy to isolate a subset of aliases, to work on, activate, deactivate, delete, and so on. You can combine these filters to narrow your focus. For example, choose user and only user aliases appear. For example, choose Spanish, and only the Spanish aliases appear. You can create any number or aliases for a content block. For example, you cannot alias www.example.com with www.example2.com. However, you can alias anything below the root folder. On multi-site environments, you can apply an alias to a folder on the root site, or to a folder on other sites, but not both.

For example, you can have the alias content.aspx applied to a root-folder, but then the content.aspx alias cannot be used on a site-folder at the same time. However, if you apply content.aspx to site1-folder, you can also apply content.aspx to site2-folder. The URL Aliasing Settings screen appears, which indicates if manual aliasing is on or off. To change its state, click Edit, check or uncheck the box, and click Save. The alias information appears. You can filter by alias name, Content ID, and so on. —Filters— Choose Manual from the Type drop-down field. The manual aliases appear in the Aliases screen. Choose the language from the Language drop-down field. If your Ektron version supports multi-site configurations, use the Site drop-down to choose the site. You can create a new alias by clicking Add Manual Alias from that Alias tab. Also, a folder may require its content to have a manual alias. In this case, you must add a manual alias before you can check in or submit content. —Image— So when elements, controls, widgets, or custom code on your page render links to content items, the default link is rendered to the browser.. Even if the content already has a primary alias, this alias will become primary. Select an extension to apply to this alias. Extensions are defined on the URL Aliasing Settings screen. You can set one rule for your entire site (via this field), and separate ones that override the system-wide rule for specific manual aliases. 4 options are available. —Options— None —If an aliased URL has a query string, it is ignored. Any query string on the target URL is used. Append — Ektron appends the alias’s parameters to the target URL. If a match is found, the alias’s query string parameter takes precedence.These are used as query string parameters that can track how visitors arrived at the aliased page. You might use these in marketing campaigns to analyze the source of an aliased page’s visitors.

Your website's analytics software can track the source of the query through the variable.The QuickLink Select window appears. Only content in the language of the selected alias appears. Also, only approved content appears. The Title and Quicklink fields are filled. You may have to scroll down to see the content. Check the box next to the Active heading to activate all aliases in the list; uncheck to deactivate. Check the box next to the Delete heading to select all aliases in the list; uncheck to clear the check boxes. A taxonomy lets your site visitors navigate content independent of the folder structure., folder, user, or group designations. You can select additional elements of the alias pattern and save all information as a configuration. Because you can assign a single content block to several taxonomies, that content block can have many automatic aliases. When you activate an automatic alias configuration, any content added to the taxonomy, folder, user, or group in the future is assigned that alias (as long as the configuration is active). The screen indicates if automatic aliasing for taxonomy, folder, community user, and community group is on or off. To change the state for any of these, click Edit, then check or uncheck the box, and click Save. Manual aliases appear near the top, followed by any automatic aliases. When you create a new rule, you can specify replacement characters in the Replacement Character Map field on the Add Aliasing Rule screen. A taxonomy path has taxonomy nodes from the top to the level at which content is assigned. A folder path has folders from the top-level to the folder that contains the content. A group path may identify the Marketing group:.SiteNavigationSee Also: Working with Tokens. A taxonomy lets your site visitors navigate content independent of the folder structure., folder, user, or group) A rules screen appears. Specify a unique name for the new automatic rule.

Check the Active field if you want the rule to apply immediately after it is created. If you have more than 1 site, choose the site to which the rule applies. Select the Source Type (Taxonomy, Folder, User, Group). Click Next. The rules screen appears. —Taxonomy Rules— —Folder Rules— —User Rules— —Group Rules— A taxonomy lets your site visitors navigate content independent of the folder structure.If you choose a taxonomy, the automatic alias is applied to all content assigned to it and its child nodes. Furthermore, if your Ektron supports multi-site configurations, the automatic alias applies to content in all sites. This is because taxonomy is site independent. If you choose folder, the automatic alias applies to content in that folder and its subfolders. The taxonomy or folder is part of the automatic alias pattern. Exclude from Path (Taxonomy, Folder)—The automatic alias pattern displays folders or taxonomy levels from the top to the level you select. You can use this field to control which folders or taxonomy levels appear in the pattern. Alias Prefix (User, Group)—Add a prefix to the alias. Alias Format (Taxonomy, Folder)—Use this field to help construct the automatic alias pattern. Choose 1 of the following items to identify the content within the alias. Choose an extension from the list to identify the end of the aliased URL. Extensions are defined in the Extension field of the URL Aliasing Settings screen. Do not add any extension entered into the Handler Mapping list. See Restrictions on Extensions Template (Taxonomy)—Choose Taxonomy Template or Quicklink. When creating the automatic alias, this setting indicates which template to use for the target URL. Quicklink uses the behavior just described. Taxonomy Template uses the template assigned to the designated taxonomy along with the querystring parameters from the Quicklink. For example, if the alias uses a taxonomy, you could enter taxid. Do not enter more than one parameter.

Example Preview —shows what the alias will look like. To see any content item’s fully aliased URL, view the content and click the Alias tab; the alias is in the Automatic section. Replacement Character Map —Accept the default values, or enter the character that replaces prohibited characters in content titles when they appear within an automatic alias. Specify other replacement characters in the Replacement Character Map section.The configuration is saved, so you can reactivate it. A server control can be dragged and dropped onto a Web form and then modified.If it does, that value takes precedence over the URL alias. This lets site visitors “guess” other pages based on a recognizable pattern.The RegEx Rules screen appears. —Image— The RegEx Alias screen appears. To edit an existing expression: Click Edit List. Click the expression you want to modify. The RegEx Rule screen appears. Click Edit. If the expression is active, site visitors can enter an aliased URL to access a page on your site. Expression Name— Assign an easily recognizable name to this regular expression. It appears on the RegEx Rules screen to help users identify it. If you want to insert a question mark into the Expression, you must precede it with a backslash (\). Expression Map —Enter a map of original URL elements. As a result, a site visitor can identify other pages that use this pattern by changing the variable values. You can click Expression Library to view sample RegEx expression maps. To copy any map that resembles your page pattern, click it then modify it. As another example, you can create a pattern without knowing in advance what URL a user may type, using a querystring variable. Priority— Assign a priority to this expression from the following choices.For example, suppose that your company changed its name from Bionics to NewGen, but the content of your site remains essentially the same.

By adding a site alias, along with appropriate DNS mappings and domain registration, customers can still get to your site with the bionics.com URL and now also with the new company URL newgen.com. A taxonomy lets your site visitors navigate content independent of the folder structure.This is because taxonomy is site independent. For example, you could not enter as an alias for that site. Instead, enter. For example, you cannot alias www.example.com with www.example2.com. However, you can alias anything below the root folder. On multi-site environments, you can apply an alias to a folder on the root site, or to a folder on other sites, but not both. For example, you can have the alias content.aspx applied to a root-folder, but then the content.aspx alias cannot be used on a site-folder at the same time. However, if you apply content.aspx to site1-folder, you can also apply content.aspx to site2-folder. From now on, if a site visitor enters the alias into a browser address field, he is redirected to the site URL (set on the folder properties tab’s Production Domain field). —Image— To learn how do this for your server, please consult IIS help.
