Do you know how to resolve the broken links caused by page renaming?

​​Renaming pages in SharePoint site will cause broken links. All requests to the old URL will be responded to ​with a 404 error.

Options to resolve this issue are:

  • ​Add a page every time for a rename…. add a JavaScript or META tag redirect to the original page​
  • Use custom 404 page to look at a list in SharePoint, the list contains all the renaming records, the records are automatically maintained via page updating events handler. (We are using this way) 
  • Wait for MS to fix the problem - support classical alternative links for a page.​
