Alias in Sitecore

We can create alias in sitecore.. The same can be found also in /sitecore/system/Aliases Please make sure to publish the alias.

 Without publishing it will not work. Alias are used for SEO and they are langauge independent 

Sitecore package installation options explained

The correct description of what each option does should be something like this:

Overwrite Items with the same ID (along with it's descendants) will be removed and replaced by items from the package.

Skip Items with the same ID from the target database will remain unchanged; the item from the package will be skipped.

Merge - Clear all existing versions for a language of the item being installed are removed prior to adding new versions. This options 'clears out' the versions of the language and creates one new version.

Merge - Append item versions from the package are added 'on-top' of the existing versions of the item. This preserves history, but numbers the package versions with numbers higher than the existing version numbers. A user can merge information between versions afterwards.

Merge - Merge if there is a version with the same number in the item, the Installation Wizard will overwrite it, otherwise a new version with the specific number is added. This makes it possible to replace specific versions of items. As you can see, the Merge-options doesn't remove items, but instead, merges versions of an item.
