    UmbracoUrlAlias not working for lower level nodes


    I have a doc type which has the property umbracoUrlAlias. My content tree looks something like this:

     - Uk
        - Homepage
        - About Us
           - Contact Us
        - News

    If I add a url alias for News (e.g. news2) then the alias works. If I add a url alias for Contact Us (e.g. contact-us2) the alias does not work.

    All my alias' are lower case but it looks like any nodes lower down in the tree (i.e. not at the top level) cannot have a url alias. Has anyone else had issues with this?

    I've had this same issue before ...and also couldn't find a way.

    My site wants the ability to have multiple blogs (for example).  And on the backend I wanted to organise these blogs into 1 folder to keep the content tree looking nice (because I have many other doctypes as well).

    So what happens now is that my URLs all have/blogs in the address


    ...if I use the url alias and then create sub pages, those sub pages do not inherit the parent alias (or it's not recursive?).

    has anyone else got a way around this ...the ulternative appears to be to create the url alias for every single subpage.

    I'm pretty sure that the power of this one lies in the name - that it's a URL alias - so you can make the node take over any URL... so you need to provide the full URL (i.e., the path segment) like this:


    Would answer to all of these:

    • /startpage
    • /startpage/
    • /startpage.aspx
    • /go/first
    • /go/first/
    • /go/first.aspx
    • /start-here
    • /start-here/
    • /start-here.aspx
