Redirection Tool

The Redirection Tool can be used for storing references to moved content to enable redirects, or it can be used for giving objects multiple URLs (aliases). If a page is not found, the tool looks at its list of redirects to see if there is a match, and if so, it redirects to that page.

Project Description

The Redirection Tool can be used for storing references to moved content to enable redirects, or it can be used for giving objects multiple URLs (aliases). If a page is not found, the tool looks at its list of redirects to see if there is a match, and if so, it redirects to that page.

Made by Helge Tesdal at Jarn (previously Plone Solutions) sponsored by Learning Lab Denmark

The Redirection Tool is released under the GPL licence.

Future plans include a more intelligent 404 handling, where the tool would either search for alternative pages based on the components of the requested URL and automatically redirect if there is only one hit, otherwise display a limited number of hits, or alternatively chop off URL components until it finds an object that can be published to the user.
