Python scripted redirects in Plone CMS

Project description


collective.scriptedredirect allows you to write HTTP 302 Moved Temporary and HTTP 301 Moved Permanently logic for your Plone CMS site with Python scripting.


  • The redirect logic is front-end web server independent (no need to learn Apache, Varnish or Nginx)
  • Python allows to write more complex logic for redirects easier (no regular expressions!)
  • Python scripts in Plone have access to more complete state information (user logged in status, permissions, etc.)


Add add-on in buildout.cfg:

eggs =

Run buildout.

Install Scripted redirects in Python in Site Setup > Add-ons.

Edit redirect_handler in Zope Management Interface.

In the case of accident use ?no_redirect HTTP query parameter to override the redirecter and fix your site.


The redirect script takes input parameters

  • url: full URL of the request
  • host:
  • port: 80, 443 or custom Zope port
  • path: the path part of URL


collective.scriptedredirect hooks itself to Zope’s pre-traversal hook and is triggered before the request traverses into your Plone site in Zope application server.
