Add-On Type(s)



Redirects current EE template to a given location.

HS Redirect is a simple plugin that will redirect to an internal or external location. It can be used, for example, to redirect a visitor to a login page if they need to login before viewing the page.


External links:

{exp:hs_redirect location="http://www.google.com"}

Internal links (template paths):

{exp:hs_redirect location="blog/entry/12345"}

Other Parameters


- PHP redirection is the default, but you can also choose to use javascript redirection by using the method="script" parameter. (This is useful if you need the current template to register as the referrer of the page to which this plugin is redirecting.)


- Options are 'yes' or 'no'.
- If either values are entered in the parameter, the plugin will only be processed for visitors whose logged-in status matches the value.


- Enter the member group's numerical ID.
- If included, then the plugin will only be processed for visitors who are part of this group.


- If included, then the plugin will use the web address of the page which referred to this template as the redirect location, effectively redirecting back to the same page that linked to this one.
- The fallback, if the $_SERVER["HTTP_REFERER"] variable cannot be determined, is to use the location parameter.
- When combined with logged_in="yes", this is helpful to keep login pages from accidentally being displayed to logged-in visitors, for example.
