Add-On Type(s)



Redirect301 is a MSM compatible plugin that redirects internal links by sending an SEO-friendly 301 header. This tells search engines that your content has moved permanently and avoids penalties for duplicate content. DISCONTINUED.

This add-on has been discontinued.

You can issue a 301 redirect to a new page like this:

bc. {exp:redirect301 url=“weblog/template”}

If you’re using the Multiple Site Manager, simply specify the name or ID of your site, like this:

bc. {exp:redirect301 url=“weblog/template” site=“site_short_name_or_id”}

If you’re using MSM and you don’t specify the site, redirect301 uses the default_site URL to build redirect links.

h3. Use case: short URL system

There are probably several uses for internal 301 redirects, but I’m using it as short URL generator, like this:

# Create a template group called “go”
# Edit the index file to include the following code:

bc. {exp:weblog:entries limit=“1” entry_id=”{segment_2}" disable="member_data|trackbacks|pagination"}
{exp:redirect301 url=”{weblog}/{url_title}”}

p. This will take a URL such as and issue a 301 redirect to the full URL, such as

Then, to create a link within your posts that readers can share, simply append the post ID to the short URL address, like this:

bc. {exp:weblog:entries}
