You can create custom URL redirects on your instance. This may be necessary if you are migrating from an existing learning site and you need to redirect current URLs to the related pages on your new Thought Industries site.
For example, your old site may have displayed all content on www.yourdomain.com/content, while the relevant page on Thought Industries would be the catalog www.yourdomain.com/catalog. In this case, you would set up a redirect from /content to /catalog so that learners can easily find their way to the new catalog page.
Where do I find this?
Settings > Setup > Redirects
How do I do this?
- From your homepage, select Settings.
- From the left menu select Setup and then Redirects.
- Click Add Redirect.
- Next, you'll need to populate two different fields:
- Redirect From: this is the URL you want to redirect from (e.g., /content). Note the instructions on the page regarding format. You must start the redirect with /.
- Redirect To: is the URL you want the above URL to redirect to (e.g., /catalog). Note the instructions on the page regarding format. You must start with / or http:// or https://.
- Click Save.
Click Test Redirect to confirm that your URL is redirecting to correct place. You can also type the redirect URL directly into your browser to test it.
There is no delay time on redirect setup. The changes are immediate.
