Redirect a URL

Abstract

You can create a redirect item in the Insert from Template dialog.

A redirect is a way to send both users and search engines to a different URL from the one they originally requested. For example, to redirect visitors who enter namewebsite.com/page-a in their browser to namewebsite.com/page-b. This is very useful when you want to redirect a specific page to a new location, change the URL structure of a site so that it appears higher up in the navigation, or even redirect users to another website entirely. You can also use the mapping tool to set up a 301/302 or server transfer redirect.

To add a redirect item:

  1. In the Content Editor, right-click on the page where you want to specify your redirect, and click Insert, Redirect.

  2. Enter a name for the redirect item and click OK.

  3. In the Redirect section, enter the URL that you want to direct to and save your changes. You must request exact redirect item (in this example: Page A) in the content tree to trigger the redirection (Page B).

    Request the exact redirect item in the content tree to trigger the redirection.
