I'm building a new website using TikiWiki 17. Each wiki page has a URL generated based on the title. However the titles will be dynamic due to the nature of how the site will be run. So if the title changes, the links to that page break. I want each wiki page to have it's own number so that way I don't have the issue of links breaking. I did some looking around but did not see anything obvious. I would think there is a module out there that allows this.

something like this?

https://doc.tiki.org/Page-Alias

I'm not sure if you need to "program" each page alias individually, but once created that would stop the page link changing, (even if the title changed.) thus preserving content.

That might be something to look into too. I was able to get an answer on the TikiWiki forum. TikiWiki forum registration is a manual process and took 24 hours for approval. There is a feature under Advanced Settings called Page ID which did exactly what I wanted. By default, I only see Basic Settings. You can see my thread here: https://tiki.org/forumthread67635#threadId=67642

It may be possible to keep the pages names the same externally using an htaccess file to rewrite the page names
