Description: The pathauto module automatically generates path aliases for various kinds of content (nodes, categories, users) without requiring the user to manually specify the path alias. This allows you to get aliases like /category/my-node-title.html instead of /node/123. The aliases are based upon a "pattern" system which the administrator can control.

Version Compatability Note: You must use the version of Pathauto that corresponds to your Drupal installation (e.g. 4.7, 5.x etc.) Pathauto currently has two branches that are being maintained to varying degrees.

This version status note updated on 13 August 2007.

Please always use this project's issue tracker to report bugs, support and/or feature requests. that is a much more reliable way to get a response than forums, mailing lists, or personal emails.

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.

Security Note: Certain versions of 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.

Performance Note: Index aliases are slow and buggy. Please don't use them. They were ported to the 5.x-1.x version of pathauto for "feature completeness" sake but will likely be dropped from future versions. See the issue about removing them and issues about them being slow for more details.

Development support Pathauto module was primarily developed by mikeryan. Current maintenance and feature development is supported by pingVision.
