    Renaming Node name does not stop URL working.

    Hi Guys,

    I had a node in my tree called Register, umbraco created this page with a URL of:

    Which is was I was expecting, then I decided to change the name of the node to "Register Step 1"

    As I was expecting the URL changes and looking at it the umbraco back office the URL is now

    All good so far....right?

    Ok but now if I navigate to

    Umbraco Automatically redirects me to

    Can anyone explain why this is happening?

    In my scenario this behavior is actually good, means if someone has created link on an external site, they don't need to update it, the user will still see the page I want them to see, all with out me doing anything.

    but in other scenarios this could be exactly what you don't want to happen, so how could I turn it off?

    Any ideas?

    Hi Ayo,

    I assume you're using one of the latest versions of Umbraco, so You have the out-of-box feature for taking care of URL changes. So, it's not a bug - it's a feature! :)

    To disable redirect you need to open "Redirect URL Management" tab in your content section and click "Remove" button just next to redirect which you want to get rid of.

    enter image description here

    Hope that will solve your problem! Let me know :)
