Manage redirects

This functionality is available only in Permalink Manager Pro.

How to manage the custom redirects?

You can use Permalink Manager to create additional custom redirects (aliases) for each post/page/category or term.

The custom redirects panel can be accessed directly from the URI Editor. To open it click on “Permalink Manager” button displayed below the title field. Then please use “Manager Redirects“ button in the bottom.

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 enter the 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 save redirects for old permalinks?

The extra redirects can be also created for earlier versions of custom permalinks. This could be useful after the permalinks are manually adjusted with URI Editor or bulk updated with Regenerate/reset tool.

You can find more detailed information about this functionality in this article.

How to disable the redirects manager completely?

By default, the extra redirects functionality is automatically turned on in the plugin settings. However, if you decide not to use it (eg. you use another plugin to control the redirects, eg. Yoast SEO Premium or Redirection), you can deactivate this feature. In order to do this, you need to go to the plugin settings and disable “Extra redirects (aliases)” option.
