Redirects

Introduction

With redirects, you can redirect one URL on your website to another. For example, when you create a redirect from /foo to /bar, people who visit www.mydomain.com/foo will be redirected automatically to www.mydomain.com/bar.

Go to Settings → Redirects to create redirects for your project. They have 3 properties:

  • From: the URL to redirect from. Always starts with a slash and never includes the domain name. Can contain wildcards (see below).
  • To: the URL to redirect to. Always starts with a slash and never includes the domain name.
  • Permanent: when checked, a permanent redirect will be executed with a 301 code, which will tell Google this redirect is permanent and they can forget about the source URL. Otherwise, the redirect will be temporary and a 302 code will be used.

Note that redirects always have priority over pages. If both a redirect and a page exist with the same URL, the redirect will be executed and the page will not be reachable. In such cases, a warning will be shown in the page table.

Wildcards

You can use wildcards in the From field of redirects. There are 2 types:

  • * matches all characters, except slash
  • ** matches all characters, including slash

Let's have a look at some examples:

From Will redirect?
/products/*   /products/category
  /products/category/product
/products/*/product   /products/category/product
  /products/category/subcategory/product
/products/**   /products/category
  /products/category/product
/products/**/product   /products/category/product
  /products/category/subcategory/product

Exporting & Importing Redirects

You can export and import redirects in the same way you export and import data in tables.

See Exporting and Importing for more information.
