Redirects in the Frontastic studio

You can use redirects to avoid any dead links across your website or if you want to make sure that your customers don't see old pages.

For example, if you had a page with the URL ending .../Sale2017 you don't want customers to find this old page through an old bookmark or search, you can create a redirect from .../Sale2017 to go to a new page with the URL .../Sales.

Redirects management will show you a list of all the manually created redirects, as well as any automatically created redirects from when you move page folders within your navigation. It's here that you can create a new redirect or delete an existing redirect.

Creating a new redirect

  1. Open Redirects in the Frontastic studio
  1. Click the blue add icon
  1. Input the page folderpage folder - A way of structuring the pages within a project and forms the URL structure – they can contain sub-folders. Known as `node` in code. that you want to redirect from (Source path), the page folder that you want to redirect to (Target path), select whether you want it to be a permanent redirect (301) or a temporary one (302), then click Create

❗️

You can't use the source path of an existing node. The source path can only be from a deleted or path that no longer exists. The source path must start with a /, for example, /Sale2017.

Once you've created a redirect, you won't be able to edit it. So if you need to change it, you'll need to delete the redirect first and then create another one.

Deleting a redirect

To delete a redirect, click the tick box next to the name of the redirect you want to delete, then click the trash can icon, and then confirm your deletion:

Searching for a redirect

You can search all your redirects by their source URL by using the search field:

You'll need to start your search with a forward slash (/) as it would appear in your URL after the main site. For example, /sale2017.
