Project description



The Redirection Tool allows the management of the aliases stored in

Using The RedirectionTool

To make a redirection to a piece of content…

  1. Navigate to that content.

  2. Click the Aliases tab.

  3. Enter the short name or the absolute path that should redirect to the content.

  4. Click Add.

There is also a Redirection and Aliases control panel under Site Setup which presents all the redirections in the site in one place, allows enabling and disabling alias management per content type, and lets you upload redirections in bulk.
