Redirect your users without URLs that look long and boring
With custom redirects, you can decide what the link looks like
Let’s create a custom redirect
First go to Website → Custom redirects on your dashboard
Create a new custom redirect by adding a path name and the URL
For example, you have created a google form through which your users can register for an event
Now under Custom redirects, create the following:
A path name - This can be any custom name, here it is workshop 2021
Redirect URL - The URL to which users should be redirected, in this case, the google form link
Now you can share the path with your users and they will see the custom name set by you, instead of the long URL which it leads to
Please note: While creating custom redirects, please keep in mind that conflicting entries do not work.
This means that if a path already exists, then it won’t work in custom redirects.
For example, here we have a path https://petalacademy.teachmore.in/contact-us
Now if we create the same in custom redirects with a different URL, it will be invalid.
That means https://petalacademy.teachmore.in/contact-us will still lead the users to the older existing page:
