Creating Aliases to Drupal Paths

In addition to making aliases to content nodes, you can also make aliases to other Drupal paths. Perhaps you're interested in an easier path to get to the configuration page for the Bluemarine theme. The Existing System Path field entry is admin/themes/settings/bluemarine. In the New Path Alias field, you might enter something like configure/bluemarine. Now the following two URLs take you to the same screen (the Bluemarine theme must be enabled):

http://www.yoursite.com/admin/themes/settings/bluemarine http://www.yoursite.com/configure/bluemarine

Tip The Pathauto module (http://drupal.org/node/17345) automatically generates path aliases for various kinds of content (nodes, categories, and users) when no explicit alias is provided by the user. The patterns used for generating the aliases is fully configurable, making the Pathauto module an indispensable tool for search engine optimization.
