Page Links To

Page Links To | Mark Jaquith

Description

This plugin allows you to make a WordPress page (or post or custom post type) link to a URL of your choosing, instead of its WordPress URL. It also will redirect people who go to the old (or “normal”) URL to the new one you’ve chosen.

Common uses:

  • Set up navigational links to non-WordPress sections of your site or to off-site resources.
  • Publish content on other blogs (or other services, like Medium) but have them show up in your WordPress posts stream. All you have to supply is a title and a URL. The post title will link to the content on the other site.
  • For store operators, you can link to products on other retailer’s sites (maybe with an affiliate code) but have them show up like they’re products in your store.
  • Create a “pretty URL” for something complicated. Say you have https://example.com/crazy-store-url.cgi?search=productId&sourceJunk=cruft … just create a WordPress page called “My Store” and use Page Links To to point it to the ugly URL. Give people the new URL: https://example.com/my-store/ and it will redirect them!
