We have a page on our site with the URL /ProgramsResources/... The page name is "Programs & Resources".

There are probably 100 or so sub-pages of "ProgramsResources" in various levels below. 

I'd really like to change /ProgramsResources/ to just /Programs/.

So, my question is this: what's the least painful way to do that? I'd like to actually change the page name, but, I know I'll end up breaking all those URLs below that page and that link to it. Is there some clever way I can make the old URLs just work?

How about adding a HIDDEN page called Programs & Resources that is a redirect to your Programs page?

Thanks Mike - that's a clever idea.

But, it only seems to work for that page itself. If I go to /ProgramsResources/Subpage/SubSubPage or something, it gets a 404 and doesn't direct to /Programs/Subpage/SubSubPage.

I'd wondered about using a URL setting, but couldn't get one to work.

Wait - I'm sorry - this does seem to be working... I'm not sure why it wasn't before.

Thanks Mike.
