Update ALL links when Page name changes

Idea created by anthonem@seattleu.edu on Jun 5, 2015
      Idea is currently in Product Radar Learn more about this stage...


    Here's a common scenario:


    An instructor makes a page, let's say a module overview page, and then links to this page from a custom Home page. While developing the course, the instructor changes the name of the module overview page. This breaks the homepage link because the page URL contains the page name.


    Please create a system to avoid this common problem.

    Thank you for the feature request. I can see how referencing the page ID number rather than referencing the page name would help prevent some of these links from breaking. I completely agree that this would be a better solution, and I have added this to our backlog of work to track it. Unfortunately given the other priorities we are working on, I think it is unlikely that we will be able to get this done in the next six months. I will be happy to update this post if that changes.
