301 Redirects In Magento

Recently we launched a new website which we built in Magento and we wanted to ensure that any pages from the existing platform was handled correctly.

Follow these steps below to add a 301 redirect.

Login to your Magento administration area

Choose "Catalog" > "URL Rewrite Management"

Click "Add URL Rewrite" (On the top right)

Choose "Custom" from the dropdownlist

"ID Path" - Enter the old URL

"Request Path" - Enter the old URL

"Target Path" - Enter the new URL

Choose 301 redirect from the dropdownlist

You can also enter any notes for this URL e.g Redirect from old website

You can also use this method to add temporary redirects as well.
