Prevent broken links and keep your SEO love in the right places
Redirects allow a slug or uri of your site to be redirected to another slug or uri of your site, or another site completely. The allows for the changing of slugs without broken links being shown to others who may have previously linked to your site pages, and lets search engines know where pages have moved to, keeping your SEO rankings intact.
Redirects are very simple and only consist of a few fields:
Old URL – The url/slug/uri that should be redirected from.
New URL – The url/slug/uri that should be redirected to.
Expiration – When the redirect rule should be considered expired and no longer perform the redirect.
You can also specify if the redirect is based on a per-existing entry, this is really only for long term management of the redirect, so you can remember why it was created.
Each section you have that has entries gets to define how changing slugs of entries in the section are handled:
Automatically create a redirect rule when entry slugs are changed
Ask user if they want to create a redirect rule when entry slugs are changed
Set the policy you want on a section by section basis and have no fears of content creators altering entry slugs!
