I have created an enterprise wiki site collection inside SharePoint server 2013, and I have defined managed navigation inside the Global Navigation as follow:-

enter image description here

Then I created a new wiki page named Test , where the physical url will be:-


And the friendly url will be :-


After that I edit the wiki page name & title to be TestUpdated instead of test, but now I will get the page physical url as :-


But the problem is that its friendly url will not get updated accordingly, and it will still referencing the old name:-


So why the friendly url did not get the new name and title , is there a reason for this? Can anyone advice on this please?

    Because the friendly URL is based on terms, and the name of the terms (not the page). So you also need to rename the term if you rename a page – Robert Lindgren Jun 26 '15 at 11:24
  • @RobertLindgren but seems this is a long process for end users to do , they will expect renaming a wiki page will do all of these. For example when i first deploy the site we realize that when updating the wiki page name its title will NOT get updated,, , so i wrote a workflow that will update the wiki page title when its name is changed.... but now there is also the friendly urls ,,, – john Gu Jun 26 '15 at 11:43

    I think you need to think about what you are trying to achive. When we work with friendly URLS (managed navigation) we do this because there also is a term structure that is used for tagging documents or something that should be visible based on the current pages friendly url (term). Otherwise, it is a bit more tricky to work with. Also note that using a termset gives you the possiblity to create a "virtual" hierarchy of tha pages wihout subsites – Robert Lindgren Jun 26 '15 at 11:51

    We do that in another way – Robert Lindgren Jun 26 '15 at 12:11

    Nope, then you do not used managed navigation, but activates the (enterprise only) managed metadata navigation in the actual pages library – Robert Lindgren Jun 26 '15 at 13:35
