Add redirects to your Sylius store from a simple interface.
The SyliusRedirect Plugin is a purposeful addition for Sylius shop owners seeking to gain enhanced control over the redirections within their online stores. This plugin is particularly beneficial for businesses aiming to maintain smooth navigation for their users, ensuring that any alterations in URLs do not hinder the user experience by leading to non-existent or irrelevant pages.
Manage Redirects: The plugin integrates a new menu entry under ‘Configuration’ labeled ‘Redirects’, allowing administrators to seamlessly create and manage redirections, ensuring that users are always directed to the correct page even after a URL change.
Flexible Redirection: The administrators can define the source URL, relative to the website, and the target URL, which can be either relative or absolute, enabling redirection to different websites if needed.
Redirection Type: It offers the flexibility to set up either Permanent (301) or Temporary (302) redirects, facilitating optimal response codes based on individual redirection needs.
Condition-Based Redirection: A unique feature of this plugin is its ability to enable redirections only in cases of 404 errors, which aids in managing potentially dead links effectively.
Enhanced Security: It comes with built-in security measures to prevent the creation of infinite loops during redirection, ensuring consistent and reliable redirects. This feature works through infinite recursive checking and also avoids the creation of identical source redirections.
Automatic Redirects: The plugin possesses a built-in feature facilitating automatic redirection creation when a product slug is modified, handling instances that might create infinite loops, and removing unnecessary redirects autonomously.
