Example 2:

  • Old Full Url or Text: "is/a"
  • Match Type: "Contains String"
  • Destination URL.: "/this/is/a/valid/link/"

If a User or a Guest visits the link "" he will be redirected to "" because the error link contains the string "is/a".

Example 3:

  • Old Full Url or Text: "this"
  • Match Type: "Start with String"
  • Destination URL.: "/this/is/a/valid/link/"

If a User or a Guest visits the link "" he will be redirected to "" because the error link starts with the string "this".

Example 4:

  • Old Full Url or Text: "link"
  • Match Type: "End with String"
  • Destination URL.: "/this/is/a/valid/link/"

If a User or a Guest visits the link "" he will be redirected to "" because the error link ends with the string "link".

Example 5:

  • Old Full Url (find): "link"
  • Match Type: "Find and Replace"
  • Destination URL (replace): "url"

If a User visits the link "" he will be redirected to "" because the error link contains the string "link" and it has replaced it with the string "url".
