Parakeet can generate alternative links for content using two different schemas. An alternative link will redirect to the real content address.
This feature requires .htaccess support on the Web server.
A permalink is an address designed to stay constant even if content is moved or renamed.
In Parakeet permalinks are based on the UUID assigned to each content object. The permalink for this page is:
The portion after the UUID is called the link suffix. This has no impact on the link routing, but makes the link easier to read.
As the suffix has no impact it is possible for people to mislead a bit using this feature. For example, this page is also reachable as http://www.duncanmartin.com/permalink/3AB6702E-B22C-11E5-A6E6-FC620A2938A2/i-like-punching-puppies. If this bothers you, set the suffix rule to block.
Since these links are supposed to be long-lived, avoid changing the directory once established. Similarly, don’t change the suffix rules from generate to block.
A quicklink is an address for providing a shorter alias for a page. This page is accessible using the quicklink:
Quick links are set in the content config:
Or in the header of a page:
A page can have multiple quicklinks. Each quicklink must be site unique. There are no particular restrictions on the labels, but some characters will be URL escaped, making the result less pretty.
