Redirects are used to redirect a visitor from one path within your blog to a different URL. You can configure redirects in Settings → Redirects in the Console.

Create Redirect
  • Dynamic - Match patterns using regular expressions. See Dynamic Redirects.
  • From - The path you want to redirect from. For example, /path. For dynamic redirects, you can use regular expressions.
  • To - Where to redirect the visitor. It can be a path within your blog or an external URL.
  • Type - Permanent (HTTP 301) or Temporary (HTTP 302). It determines the HTTP response code.

Dynamic Redirects

With dynamic redirects, you can match a path dynamically using a pattern. This is useful when you want to redirect multiple paths that follow a pattern to a single destination. For example, you can redirect all requests starting with /author/ to an external site.

You can only have up to 5 dynamic redirects per blog.
Example 1

Here's how to create a dynamic redirect:

  • Turn on Dynamic option
  • Set From to a regular expression you want to match (we support PCRE2 syntax).
  • Set To to the URL you want to redirect to. You can use captured groups here, like $1.
  • Choose the Type of redirect and click Add.

Dynamic Redirect Examples

1. To redirect all requests starting with /author/ to an external site:

  • From: /author/(.*)
  • To:

2. To redirect all requests starting with /author/ to an external site, keeping the rest of the path:

  • From: /author/(.*)
  • To:$1

3. To redirect all requests starting with /author/ followed by another / to an external site, with some changes in the original structure of the path:

  • From: /author/([^/]+)/(.*)
  • To:$1/somedirectory/$2

4. Redirect paths ending with / to the same path without the trailing slash:

  • From: /(.*)/$
  • To:$1
