Create a redirecting page

To redirect a page from Sitefinity CMS to another page, perform the following:
  1. In the backend of Sitefinity CMS, navigate to Pages.
  2. In the Actions link of the page, click Titles & Properties.
  3. Select Redirect to another page checkbox.
    It means the page will not have its own content. When a user opens the page, it redirects to another page or an external page.
  4. Click Plus sign button under the checkbox.
    The Set page to redirect to page appears.
    Select one of the following:
    • Page from this site
      Select a page from the sitemap.
    • Web address
      Enter the URL address of the external page. Optionally, select whether you want to Open this link in a new window.
  5. Click Done.

NOTE: If you created a standard page with content, switched it to a redirect page and then back to standard page, the content of the page is kept and available. However, the page is still redirecting because of the permanent redirect cache. Once the cache expires, the page no longer redirects. To configure the cache expiration navigate to Administration » Settings » Advanced » Pages » Expiration time for permanent redirect and set the time in seconds. The default is 86400 seconds or one day.
