Redirects

Currently the best way to do proper redirects with Combine is to define them within your hosting provider.

Some hosts don't provide a redirect feature though. So if you really need redirects and are ok with it not being a real 301/302, you can use Combine's basic HTML redirect template.

This works by creating a {path}.redirect page (like you would any other page) and putting a URL in the contents. So, to redirect /contact-us/ to /contact/, you would create contact-us.redirect with this content:

/contact/

Under the hood, this is rendered using a template that will effectively get a user to where they need to go:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset=utf-8>
  <title>Redirecting...</title>
  <link rel=canonical href="{{ redirect_url }}">
  <meta http-equiv=refresh content="0; url={{ redirect_url }}">
</head>
<body>
  <h1>Redirecting...</h1>
  <a href="{{ redirect_url }}">Click here if you are not redirected.</a>
  <script>location='{{ redirect_url }}'</script>
</body>
</html>
