The pathauto module automatically generates path aliases for various kinds of content (nodes, categories, users) when no explicit alias is provided by the user.
Version Compatability Note: You must use the version of Pathauto that corresponds to your Drupal installation (e.g. 4.6, 4.7, etc.) Pathauto currently has three branches that are being maintained to varying degrees.
This version compatability note updated on 5 October 2006.
Security Note: Certain versions of pathauto_node.inc had a XSS security vulnerability. If you downloaded/installed Pathauto prior to 31 August 2006 then your site might be vulnerable to this attack. To determine if the version of pathauto you downloaded is vulnerable, see the Security Announcement. It is highly encouraged to update your pathauto installations if you are affected by this issue.
Please allways use this projects issue tracker to report bugs, support and/or feature requests. we seldom read the forums or mailing lists.
Help Make Pathauto Better: As of November 2006 I am actively seeking a co-maintainer for Pathauto. The goal is to have multiple people working to patch bugs and provide new features. If you are interested in this, please contact me. Before contacting please show your interest by reading through the issue queue, providing some reviews, and/or patches that improve the module.
Note: Drupal 4.6 has a bug which causes the site to slow down significantly when you have lots of cusom paths. this is fixed in Drupal 4.7. If you want to patch your Drupal 4.6 site, see this issue
