Permanent 301 Redirects Add OnBrowser Info Environment
I'm working on a site that needs roughly 100 301's put in place. Is your add on limited to allowing only 7? What is available for websites that need more than 7?
There is no limit, not sure where you read/saw that?
Bear in mind that redirects with this Add-On are set on a page, so existing pages (to a child page of your choice). If you want to redirect from deleted pages, that's not possible with this Add-On. You can redirect from a page to the/a:
- First child page;
- Last child page;
- Newest child page;
- Oldest child page;
- Child page name in ascending order;
- Child page name in descending order;
- Child page ID in ascending order;
- Random child page;
- Parent page;
Do you have any questions still?
Thanks. Yes I have two questions. I need to fix 404's and was looking at your add on for that.
I need to do over 100. For the pricing, the page says to buy one for $15 or 7 for $35. What does that mean? I'm not understanding.
Is there anything else needed for this add on to work?

What this Add-On does though, is if you have pages that are just a placeholder for children pages (let's say portfolio), and you don't want visitors to be able to visit this placeholder page, to let them redirect to the first child page (or last) or whatever child page.
As for pricing, you are not talking about 7 but 5. You can buy a "5-pack" (which equals 5 installations). If you buy 1 (single), you can use this Add-On on 1 (one) site. If you buy a 5-pack, you can use it on 5 (five) different sites. Depends on how many projects/sites you are going to build. Mostly, this price is for developers. But if you are an entrepeneur and have multiple sites, it may come in handy too. These prices are attractive if you are looking for more than 1!
Makes sense? Don't hesitate to ask more questions :-)
Thanks so much for your help, I really appreciate it. I usually work in Wordpress so this is a new environment for me.
Under Sitemap, I see I can add a url as you pointed out. The problem though is it’s pulling the current (and newly created) urls already. So would I simply add the “old” url and choose Canonical for the old url? Does this complete a true 301 permeant redirect?
I’m not clear what the difference is between that method and buying your add on. Most pages I have changed or will be changing are level 2 or more in the navigation. Are you referring to that as “child”?
Here’s what happened. Another company did this site without a keyword strategy. I’ve been hired to now do that. In the SEO bulk updater, I went through and started working on the meta description, page title and urls. The site has just over 200 pages, I’ve changed somewhere between 100-150 of them.
So now I have 100-150 404’s. I want to do 301 permanent redirects for all of them.
Is your add on what I need to do this? If so, I’ll buy it. Can you please give me step by step of how to do 301’s in C5?

My Add-On only redirects to a child page. Let's say you have a page Portfolio.
Page name: Portfolio
Maybe you have a portfolio item. That is this:
Page name: My Portfolio item
Page name: Another Portfolio item
With my Add-On, you can redirect the portfolio page to a "child". That could be "My Portfolio item" or "Another Portfolio item". You have options like "first child" or "last child" and things like that. So you can control to which "Child Page" it has to redirect. That's why it's called "Page Child Redirect". You Redirect from a Page to a Child. Child pages are a level deeper indeed. You will need this Add-On only if you want the parent (Portfolio in this example) to redirect to one of the children. If you have an old URL (maybe /my-portfolio), you can add this under "Location" like I told you at the very top of this post.
Makes sense? :)
Can I bother you with one last question? The sitemap route you showed me to do these redirects concerns me that it’s asking me to click canonical. I don’t want both pages to still be live and Google only indexes one. I need one to fully and permanently redirect to the other. Only the new page is visible. Only the new page gets indexed. The old url still works.
Is this still the right direction within C5 for what I need?
