Support » Plugin: Simple Website Redirect » Editing

  • Resolved jbowerman


    Am I still able to edit with this plug-in? I can get into the back end/admin but when I go to edit a page it bumps to the .org URL instead of the .com one … I have it set to temporary and preserve paths.

    Am I missing something or am I not able to edit when this is enabled?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    You should be able to edit content with this plugin installed. As long as you are editing content on the backend of the site. If you are using a page builder that uses a front-facing editor (e.g. Elementor, Beaver Builder) then you will be redirected and unable to edit.

    The general use case for this plugin is that a site has moved and someone wants to redirect users to the new site while still being able to view the content in the admin on the old site.

    It sounds like you have a different use case and I’d like to hear more about your use case and what content editor you are using.

    Thanks for the reply! I am using X Theme with a front end builder called Cornerstone. Long story short, we are only wanting to defer people to our old WIX site for a little bit while I finish up the new site and this was the easiest way to accomplish that … Maybe I need a different plug-in? Or maybe it can’t be done via a plug-in? Thanks!

    That use case makes a lot of sense. It seems like you just need an exception that prevents redirects of those page builder links. If you can shoot me a sample URL for one of the edit screens that the front end page builder is redirecting you away from, I’ll see what I can do. I may have a copy of Cornerstone somewhere that I can test with… I’ll see if I can track it down.

    Thanks! …. should be .com but takes me to .org and a WIX 404 error page 🙁

    Thanks for the help!


    Thanks for your work on this … do foresee it being possible to add some code for me to edit in Cornerstone (X Theme) .. or should I find another way to go about this?

    Thanks again!

    Sorry about the delay @jbowerman

    I’ve just released a version 1.2 which has an advanced settings section. There are fields there which allow you to setup exclusions based on file paths and/or query parameters. I don’t have an updated copy of Cornerstone, but I was able to get it working with an older version. I’m 100% confident I can make it work with a new version, but just don’t have it to test with.

    Start by adding /x to the Excluded Paths field. Then try to load up the editor. If it doesn’t entirely work and you still need help, reach out to me at and we’ll figure out a way to work through it.
