URL Replacement

This plugin will help you to replace your target link with what you want.

When Content Editor working in creating new page items or updating published pages, they sometimes need to compare the item to the current live page to see how current live page looks like. In this case, they would open a new tab or window and manually type “http(s)://www.mysite2.com/Finance/Market_News” in Address Bar because its database-driven item path is “/sitecore/content/Site2/Finance/Market_News” in Sitecore.

Using this extension we can avoid the extra work and it will directly replace your target link with what you want upon setup. And also this extension can be used on any web page.
