I had a structure like this:
Pagegroup named AtLAS at the root
Pagegroup 2011 inside AtLAS.
Pagegroups 9 and 12 inside 2011.
Pages attached to 9 and 12.
After dragging 2011 to the root of the site, I had two pagegroups at the root, AtLAS and 2011.
If I go to my pages which have links on them, created with the Sitefinity RadEditor, the paths are not re-calculated... they still contain "atlas/".
I noticed that my 2011 folder then had a checkbox checked for alternate URLs for this page, which contained a path with "atlas/" which no longer exists, so I unchecked the box, but my links are still busted.
I definitely don't remember this behavior in Sitefinity 3.7. Is this a new "feature" of 4.x?
I've also noticed that if I add an image to an album and then rename that image, it automatically creates alternate URLs which display that image. This should not be turned on by default!
I had an album with slide01.jpg, slide02.jpg, slide03.jpg. I then created a widget which sorts by title to order my slideshow. If I rename slide03.jpg to slide04.jpg and upload a new slide03.jpg, I end up with the tthumbnails of the original slide03 showing for both slide03 and slide04 in the backend and no thumbnail showing the new slide03!
Is there a global way to disable this behavior of creating redirects on everything that is renamed! Once a site goes live, I could see wanting to support users who have bookmarked things, but while building the site, it is driving me crazy.
As usual an suggestions for dealing with this will be appreciated.
