Also Available: URL Redirects in Showit
If your blog is hosted under your main domain you can setup redirects via your Wordpress admin interface with the help of a plugin. We suggest using the Redirection plugin shown in the steps below.
- To install the plugin go to your Wordpress admin > Plugins > Add New. Search for "Redirection" and click to Install, then to Activate the plugin.
- Under the Tools menu, open Redirection.
- Type the full URL for your Source link (the link no longer active) and then type in the Target link (where you want the user to land).
- Click to Add Redirection.
Detect 404 Errors and Setup Redirects
The Redirection plugin also allows you to view a log of all urls requested from your domain with no associated page.
If you recently made a change to your site you may want to periodically check the 404s section in Redirection to see if any important pages should be setup with a redirect.
Pro Tip: Only redirect important pages that may have recently changed URLs. You may see 404 errors for pages you never had, don't worry about redirects for those.
