How it works

  • The redirect config is a dexterity object (mainly for ftw.publisher compatibility).
  • Redirects are only applied if no content is found (404).
  • Redirect rules are applied top-down: top roles have higherpriority. The first matching rule is applied, later rules arenot considered.
  • Redirects match when the request path starts with thesource path.
  • Each rule requires a source path and a destination.
  • The source path must start with a slash and should not be the site root.
  • The destination may be a path (starting with a slash) or an URL to an external site.
