Support » Fixing WordPress » Redirect category link to page link

  • Is there a way I can redirect a URL to another URL when clicked upon?

    For example, I’m using Arthemia and have 5 categories selected in the ‘Browse Category’ section that runs across the middle of the index.php page. Ideally, I want these categories to link to pages. I thought I could use a redirect command to take, say, /thisisfootball/?cat=18 directly to /thisisfootball/?page_id=101 when clicked on.

    Is this possible?

    Many thanks,
    Phil

  • I’d love an answer to this as well. I am building a CMS and prefer to avoid the category pages (and the /category/ urls!) in my site. Is this possible? Is there a better way?

    After poking around, I’ve found the Redirection plugin works well. You can use it to redirect one URL at a time. I’ve done it globally with the help of the folks over at the plugin forum. When I click on the “products” category (for example), I wanted to land on the “products” page (/products/) rather than the products category archive listing (/category/products/). To do this, the source URL should be “/category/(.*)” (without the quote marks) and the target URL should be “/$1” (again, no quotes). This advice is lifted directly from Ricky Buchanan at the plugin forum here: http://urbangiraffe.com/support/topic/please-expand-the-example-in-the-documentation-blog-1#comments. It worked beautifully.

    Janecraft… you could avoid the ‘/category’ permalink by just changing the permalink in the admin area.

    Jane’s solution doesn’t really address the problem of the Arthemia user who wants to redirect items in the horizontal categories module to pages instead. In my case, I want to link to sub-domains.

    Anyone know of any plugins or work-arounds that could help achieve this?

    I have a plugin that will redirect any category you want to any URL you want, let me upload it since we just worked on it for a site.
