301 Redirect

Post by kevindef » Wed Jul 25, 2018 4:05 am

Hi there,

One of my web projects has gone through a major design overhaul from its old website; In order to minimise the impact of the changeover, the challenge is to use a 301 redirect to the new internal URL structure of the pages so that Google will know which page is the correct one.

Sorry for my ignorance in this area but can I do a 301 redirect from inside WB14 :D

Cheers

No, this must be done on your server using a .htaccess file. You should contact your hosting provider for help with this.
