Redirects

Redirects allow you to convert a simplified URL into the actual URL as it appears in Marketplace. For example, if you have created a Flat Page for lunch specials and want users to be able to go directly to this page (via www.yourmarketplace.com/lunch/) you can create a redirect that takes the user from www.yourmarketplace.com/lunch/ to the actual location www.yourmarketplace.com/marketplace/lunch/. This allows you to create easy to remember URLs for marketing, and still allow the end user to find content.

To add a redirect, click the ‘add’ button next to the Redirects application, then:

  1. Select the site the redirect works for
  2. Type the ‘from’ address, only the path (everything after .com) is needed
  3. Type the full ‘to’ address (the ultimate destination of your redirect)
  4. Click Save
