Hi Marris,

 

For example - I have a site with url "http://bhadauria-developer-edition.ap1.force.com/".

I have 2 pages named DemoPage and EmpForm, and DemoPage is active site home page means when i open the above site url DemoPage will open. Now i created a link named Go TO in DemoPage which redirects to EmpForm page.

 

Now i goto site details page and clicks on "Url Redirects" button, in Source URL fill -> /apex/EmpForm ( relative path not full) and in Target URL fill --> http://google.com

 

Now when you click on Go To link in DemoPage it will redirect to google.com rather than EmpForm page.

Hi Marris,

 

I think you going good but in Source URL field the page location must :

  • Be a relative URL (not full url). It can have any valid extension type, such as .html or .php.
  • Not contain anchors, such as /siteprefix/page.html#target.
