Error Messages

There are a number of Error Messages that may occur. If you do not understand an Error Message or you need assistance, please contact the web office.

Infinite loop. This occurs when you change the title of page back to what it was orignally published as. Below are the steps that create the error. It is meant for demonstration purposes and does not fix the issue. If you run into this problem please contact the web office.

a. After you create a basic page a URL alias is also created. For example,

Title Section

The about us page, once saved and published, now connects to your department page as alias /about-us.

b. If you edit the current page, and change the title to About, making sure to save and publish.

Title Section

The URL alias changes to /about but a redirect is created so that users using the original alias of /about-us can still be redirected to the page.

c. Here is when the problem occurs. By selecting edit current, and changed the title back to About US making sure to save and publish, the infinite loop message will appear.

Infinite Loop Error

Because the page is still redirecting users to /about-us the redirect creates and infinite loop, directing users to the alias /about-us when /about-us is currently the title. Because most users do not have access to the URL alias, it is hard to tell if you are changing the title to something it is already set to.

Please contact the web office if you run into this problem.
