How can I remove the page ID from the URL?

We've been using Confluence for a long time now, and I haven't noticed that all URLs now include pages/<id> between the space name and the page title.

Previously, this was the case for pages with special characters in the title, but now it seems that all pages have this and I cannot open a page without knowing the page id.

From this URL:

https://<name>.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/MAIN/Development+Environment

we have moved to this URL

https://<name>.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/MAIN/pages/1572885/Development+Environment

and I haven't found a way to get back to the previous URL. Also, opening the previous URL results in a Page Not Found.

This widget could not be displayed.

The "display" URL has not changed:

https://<name>.atlassian.net/wiki/display/<space>/<page>

It should be wiki/display/<space> instead of wiki/spaces/<space>. You will be redirected to the wiki/spaces/<space>/pages/<pageId> page, but the "nice" URL works fine.

Kariem Hussein, did you find any solution for this?

@Yevhenii Tiutiunnykunfortunately no. I haven't found anything on this and links to the original page do not resolve anymore.
