Add-On Type(s)



Basically if you place this into a template then you will be re-directed to the URL specified in the location parameter.

Plugin Usage :

This plugin is exceptionally simple to use. Place the following tag on any template as shown below :

Using full URL - useful for external sites.

{exp:redirect_to location=""} 

or using paths instead - useful for internal links.

{exp:redirect_to location="news/detail/news_story"} 

By default PHP redirection will be performed. If PHP redirection does not work,
use javascript redirection by adding method=“script” parameter.

{exp:redirect_to location="news/detail/news_story" method="script"}

If it is impossible by usual means to check if condition for redirection was met or not you can check it by wrapping the code expressing condition by



Redirection will be performed if the code wrapped by {exp:redirect_to}{/exp:redirect_to} tags will produce no output.

{exp:redirect_to location="my_template_group/my_template" method="script"}
{exp:query sql="SELECT title FROM exp_weblog_titles WHERE weblog_id = '5' AND url_title ='My title'"}

If you want that redirection would be performed on condition that certain output were produced, you should enter expected string as a value of “tagdata”  parameter. Then the redirection will be performed if the string entered as “tagdata” parameter value and output of the code wrapped by {exp:redirect_to}{/exp:redirect_to} tags are identical. (Tabs, spaces and new line characters will be stripped.) In example below redirect will occur if {exp:query tag} will produce string “1”.

{exp:redirect_to location="my_template_group/my_template" tagdata="1" method="script"}
{exp:query sql="SELECT title FROM exp_weblog_titles WHERE weblog_id = '5' AND url_title ='My title'"}
