Autoroute (OrchardCore.Autoroute)Link

This module allows you to specify custom URLs (permalink) for your content items.

Autoroute PartLink

Attach this part to a content type to specify custom URLs to your content items.

Then, go to the definition of a Content Type and edit the Autoroute Part:

  • Enter a Pattern using a Liquid expression that will represent the generated slug.

Example for a content with a TitlePart that will use it to generate the slug :

{{ ContentItem | display_text | slugify }}

Example for a content with a ListPart and a TitlePart (ig: BlogPost nested in a Blog) that will use the container and the title to generate the slug:

{{ ContentItem | container | display_text | slugify }}/{{ ContentItem | display_text | slugify }}`

  • If you want to be able to enter a custom path when you edit a content item, check 'Allow custom path'.
  • If you want to be able to set a content item as the homepage, check 'Show homepage options'

Autoroute AliasLink

Content items with an Autoroute can be retrieved by URL anywhere you can retrieve content by alias (see example below). The syntax for this is slug:<URL>, e.g. slug:my-blog/my-blog-post.


With Autoroute enabled, you can retrieve content by URL in your liquid views and templates:

{% assign my_content = Content["slug:my-blog/my-blog-post"] %}


{% assign my_content = Content.Slug["my-blog/my-blog-post"] %}
