How to Create a Redirect Using Site URL Mappings
Search Engine Friendly (SEF) URL’s are shortened links (“aliases”) used to optimize a club’s Google search results and provide users with a easier to remember URL.
The Site URL Mappings module is used to create URL redirects. For example if you have a page on the site that you want to reference with a shorter easier to remember URL, then you can set that up here.
(Applications >> Advanced Configuration >> Site URL Mappings)
|Log in to admin home|
|Search inside the applications box for “Site URL Mappings” (note, you can add to your quick links here)|
|Fill in the Source URL using the relative URL (you don’t need the domain). This is the shortened version of the URL you’re trying to create.|
|Fill in the Destination URL using the relative URL. This is the longer link you’re trying to shorten.|
|Click Create Now.|
|Click “Clear Cache” button on bottom right|
|Test your new redirect by putting the club’s domain into your browser along with the “Source URL” from step 3 above.|
|Your browser should now be redirected to the URL that you set in the Destination URL field|
