Scot's 301 Redirect & .htaccess Utility / Instructions


Using 301 Redirects & .htaccess Editor is very easy.

Add 301 Redirect

The first item on the screen is a form input where you can enter an old URL to a page and a new one to create a 301 redirect entry in your .htaccess file.

Old Path to Page, such as: /products/hat

Enter the old URL to the page. This does NOT include your domain name because this is assumed since they are coming to your site.

New URL, such as: /product/hat.html

This is the URL to the new page. If it's on your own domain, you don't have to enter the domain name. If it's forwarding to a different domain, enter the full URL.

Module Settings

When you first bring up the module admin the current module settings, if any, are loaded into the textarea. Here you will see your redirects as you add them and it's also where you can make custom changes to your .htaccess file. If at any time you want to load the current module settings, click the link under Module Settings.

Note: module settings do not go live until you click the red button.

Saving Module Settings

You can save module settings for later. Enter a save name in the box under the blue button and then click the button. You can save as many as you like. Once you have saved module settings you can load them by clicking on the save name from the saved settings list.

Edit .htaccess

Clicking the link to edit your site's current .htaccess file will load the file into the edit area. Once you are finished with your edits you can use the red button to make the changes live.

Automatic .htaccess Backups

Every time you update your .htaccess file, a backup .htaccess file is created. You can load these and make them live if necessary, or use the link delete them all.

Remove Settings

Use this link to remove the module settings from your .htaccess file.
