With the Page Path History module you can move or rename any pages and all the old URLs will redirect to the new, automated behind the scenes, without any thinking on your part.
The Page Path History module keeps track of the previous URLs for any pages that have been moved or renamed. It then sets up automatic redirects (301, permanent) to ensure the old URLs redirect to the new ones. This is best demonstrated by a few examples:
- Lets say you had the page /about/contact/ and you moved it to /contact/. With the Page Path History module installed, anyone accessing /about/contact/ will get redirected to /contact/.
- You had a page called /our-products/ and you renamed it to be [/u]/products/. Any accesses to /our-products/ will now get redirected to /products/.
- Lets say you had the page /our-products/furniture/eames-chair/ and you did like in the previous example and renamed /our-products/ to be /products/. The /our-products/furniture/eames-chair/ URL will now redirect to /products/furniture/eames-chair/ (and likewise for any other URLs under the /furniture/ structure).
- Later on you decide to rename /products/ to just /inventory/. All the /our-products/ and /products/ URLs will continue to work with redirects.
- You decide that eames-chair really belongs in /chairs/ rather than /inventory/, so you drag it to /chairs/eames-chair/. It's old URLs redirect to it's new URL.
This module is already included with the ProcessWire core. To install, go to Admin > Modules > Page > Page Path History > and click install.
