Automatically update existing links when page is renamed, document or picture is moved

It would be helpful if all existing links within a web site are automatically modified when one changes the name of a page. This would avoid broken links. Thanks

        Make the filing system more intuitive. Enable renaming folders and moving files without having to reconnect the photo/document on the website. One shouldn't have to keep a separate list to identify site albums by name vs. the current assignment of an arbitrary number. Please.

        Given that this is a CMS system we would have expected that when a document is moved to a different folder or if the folder is renamed that the link would automatically be updated. This would be an incredibly helpful feature.

        Normally links to web pages use page ID which does not change when page is renamed - so old links still work. The only exception to this is if you use custom URLs - then inserted links use those and they do get broken when custom URL is renamed. Is that the situation you referred to?
