What is the node ID (or static link) and URL alias linking to my page / action?

 

When you create a new page or action, Campaignion automatically sets the title of the page as alias. If you change the title, the alias changes too, and the old URL alias will automatically redirect to the new one.
Usually neither the title-alias, nor the node id are a pretty URL to share, so it is recommended to use a custom URL alias for your action when mobilising your supporters.

You can set the URL alias yourself in the editing interface:

  1. on the Content step
  2. Scroll down to ""
  3. Choose "URL path settings"
  4. Deactivate ""
  5. Add your URL alias of choice

 

The so-called node id (or static link) is what is used to identify exactly which page you are working on. The node id, which is unique to every page and will never change.

An easy way to find out the node ID (for example when requesting help from support) is to hover over the edit button of your page (you have to be logged in) and look at the bottom left, in most browsers. It should look something like "https://your.campaignion.org/node/123/edit". In this example, "123" is the node id of the page and "https://your.campaignion.org/node/123" would be its static link.

A second way is to simply click on the "Edit" button of your page and then copy the URL from there.
