🖐 Requirements

Complete installation requirements are the exact same as for Strapi itself and can be found in the Strapi documentation.

Supported Strapi versions:

  • Strapi 4.3.2 (recently tested)
  • Strapi ^4.x

(This plugin may work with older Strapi versions, but these are not tested nor officially supported at this time.)

We recommend always using the latest version of Strapi to start your new projects.

💡 Usage

This plugin extends the Strapi edit view to add a 'URL alias' sidebar. In the sidebar you are able to add a URL alias for your page.

You can either overwrite the URL, or have it be generated based on a URL pattern.

🔌 URL pattern

To create dynamic URLs this plugin uses URL patterns. The URL pattern will be used to generate unique URLs based on the data available.

You can add URL patterns in the settings section of the plugin.


Fields can be injected in the pattern by escaping them with [].

The following field types are allowed in a pattern:

  • id
  • uid
  • string

📺 Endpoint

The plugin also comes with an endpoint you can use to find any content by path.


await fetch(`${API_URL}/api/url-alias/get?path=/about-page`);
// GET /api/url-alias/get?path=/about-page
