Manage redirects

You can use Permalink Manager to create additional custom redirects (aliases) for each post/page/category or term. By default, the redirects will be created also for earlier versions of custom permalinks (after they are changed in Permalink Manager eg. with URI Editor or Regenerate/reset tool).

How to manage the custom redirects?

To add/edit/remove custom redirects, you need to use URI Editor. To open it click on “Permalink Manager” button displayed below the title field. Then please click on “Manager Redirects“ button in the bottom.

Now you should display a list of custom redirect. From there, you can set-up new redirects and (if any) edit/remove the old ones.

Source URL
(redirect from multiple alias URLs)
Target URL
(redirect to one canonical URL/custom permalink)
http://example.com/product-alias==>http://example.com/2001-a-space-odyssey-25th-anniversary-edition
http://example.com/uncategorized/2001-a-space-odyssey-25th-anniversary-edition-9780451452733
http://example.com/product/2001-a-space-odyssey-25th-anniversary-edition

How to redirect post/term to external URL?

Permalink Manager Pro can be used also to redirect any public post, page or term to any external URL. Contrary to internal redirects, you should use full URL address inside the input field.

Source URL
(redirect from canonical URL/custom permalink)
Target URL
(redirect to external URL)
http://example.com/car/ford/ford-focus==>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Focus

How to automatically create redirects for old permalinks?

To automatically create a custom redirect for old version of permalinks please enable “Old custom permalinks redirect” option in Permalink Manager settings.
