Support » Fixing WordPress » create two urls pointing the same page

  • i have page under many parent pages, so the url looks like this sitename.com/parent1/subparent/mypage. I want this url sitename.com/mypage also to show the same page. I plan to promote this page and for SEO purpose. right now i have forwarded the short url to the actual page using plugin.

    i don’t want to create a duplicate page and due to the sitemap i can’t make mypage as parent. is there a way to rewrite or mask the the url to show the content fromt the long url

    Either show the pages you don’t want to be indexed as noindex,nofollow through SEO plugin/ theme settings (if you have in your site) or use robots.txt file and list those URLs under Disallow:. That is the easiest and the best, though you can redirect the pages to any one URLs using other methods.

    indexing both the urls is not my concern, i don’t want to change the url the user has used. the short url site.com/mypage will be used for campaigns for promotion.

    Is this a WordPress problem? Or your problem?

    i dont want to create duplicate page and i want to use the short url (old url) and long url (new page of same content)… the site runs on wordpress… i guess you get it now.

    I got it right when I posted my first reply.
    Re-read what you wrote above. It’s clearly duplicating content.

    i didn ask for duplicate content, if its for duplicate content with two pages/post. there is no issue at all. i want to point urls (new and old) to the same page.

    i did this using custom permalinks plugin.

    i have a page under some parent pages, so the url would be site.com/parent1/parent2/mypage. using the plugin i changed the url to site.com/mypage. Now i have short url for sub-page without having directory like url.
