Did you know that the redirect settings can be easily done from Shopify admin screen?
When we need to do the redirect settings in ordinary websites, we have to use htaccess and has to set all the redirect codes one by one. However, speaking of Shopify, we can easily set those redirects from admin screen.
So it's not necessary to write codes, and no difficult settings, so if you only have redirects for like 10 redirects, you might only need few minutes to finish it all. Now we will go on to how exactly we can set redirect links.
Apply redirect settings from Shopify admin screen
Admin screen→Online store→Menu→URL redirects
In here you'll need to click URL redirect and click『Make new redirect』.
Then the screen will be like this.
Here you need to set "previous URL"(URL that redirect from) and "new URL"(URL that will be redirected to).
And press save to make redirect public. It's that easy!
Shopify redirect to make it faster
After finishing registering new redirect URLs, you might find some URLs are not entered correctly and wants to change some part of it. In that case you can choose to bulk edit it and by choosing several links.
In this status, you can click "edit redirects" at the top.
As it seen in above you can bulk edit the URL redirect links. If you want to edit already registered redirect URLs, this is a great way to save time.
Import with CSV
However, it has certain number limit to bulk edit like above. Obviously, it takes so much time if you have more than 100 redirect links or perhaps more than 1000 redirect links....😭
In that case, click "Import" button that you can see on above.
We have this kind of redirect URL CSV template, so fill out the CSV template, and import it at once.
You can also bulk import URLs with the Shopify app Excelify(Matrixify).
