Summary

Magento has fairly limited flexibility with respect to URL redirect management. The URL rewrite module Magento_UrlRewrite, as well as related modules Magento_CatalogUrlRewrite and Magento_CmsUrlRewrite, provide the ability to redirect and rewrite URLs for products, categories, and CMS pages, which is extremely useful for SEO purposes. However, there’s a lack of functionality for simple rule-based redirects, which can be especially helpful when transitioning to Magento from another platform like Shopify or BigCommerce.

To bridge this gap, we’re releasing Simple Redirects, our rule-based URL redirect management module for Magento. We’re hopeful Simple Redirects will cover the vast majority of URL redirect scenarios and that it’ll be useful to the wider Magento community. Key features include:

  1. Rule types:
    1. Path

    2. Query Parameter

    3. Host

  2. Match types:
    1. Exact match

    2. Not exact match

    3. Contains

    4. Does not contain

    5. Matches regex

    6. Does not match regex

  3. Redirect types:
    1. 301

    2. 302

  4. Priority levels 1-10

Simple Redirects v1.0.0 is now available on GitHub.
