Receive a 'Page Not Found' error when attempting to access a link in a text component that points to a portal that was renamed.

Sample steps:

5. Edit Content > Add Link > Select Link type:Page > Create Link to New Page > Save.
6. Click on the newly created link. This redirects to the "New Page" page as expected.
7. Rename portal2 to Portal21.
8. When renaming the portal, it prompts the following message:

 "Changing a portal name also changes the direct URL to the portal, breaking any existing links to the portal."
