URL rewrites are a great tool for a non Magento Developers to use in order to take control of their site, help a site migration or just to move a few things around. But for custom rewrites it can be a little confusing. Here is a simple guide to Creating Custom Magento URL Rewrites:
Find Magento URL Rewrite Management – by going to Catalog > Rewrite Management
Select the custom option from the drop down
Now you are faced with a few options:
ID Path: Is the unique identifier for this rewrite. This should just be custom, but is only used for admin purposes
Request Path: Is the URL you would like to redirect
Target Path:Is the URL you would like the Request Path directed to
Redirect: You always want this to be permanent as 302 (or temporary redirects) do not pass any of the link juice to the new URL.
Description: This is an optional description field. Use this to keep notes on what and why you set this URL redirect up
- Fill these fields out correctly
- Click Save– This should be the job done. Quickly try out your redirect to make sure it’s working correctly
That is how you create a custom Magento URL Rewrite
