Provides a link which does a permanent HTTP redirect to a moved Silva content

Project Description

Introduction is an extension for Silva 3.0 that lets you use a new a content type, a redirect link, which does a permanent HTTP redirect to its target.

You shouldn’t add these redirect links to your site manually. They are automatically created when you move or rename content in Silva.

This lets you preserve old URLs to access moved or renamed contents, telling the visitor to permanently update its reference to it. This means search engines will update their search caches with the new URL of your moved or renamed content. This prevents having content disappear from search results when it was easily found before.

When you think that visitors and search engines have updated their references to the moved or renamed contents, you can delete those links in order to definitively disable all old URLs.

You can keep moving and renaming content items as many times you wish. The redirect link will keep tracking the content each time it moves using intids.
