URL Rewriting Management In Magento

URL rewrites are a great tool 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:

(1)–Login to magento admin and goto Catalog > URL Rewrite Management
Url_1

(2)–Select Add URL Rewrite

(3)–Select the custom option from the drop down.

(4)–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
Url_2

(5)–Fill these fields out correctly. Means you have to copy here request path from category / cms pages or whatever url you want to change.

(2)–Click Save- This should be the job done. Quickly try out your redirect to make sure it’s working correctly.
Hope this will Help you. 🙂
