Using the MemberGate Page Redirection Feature

Here's how to make your old site links still active after you migrate to MemberGate - or have short links for popular pages

MemberGate uses a logical page name assignment process that keeps everything neat and tidy. However, in some cases you will want to use page names from your old site, or create shortcut names to popular pages on your current site.

Doing this is easy in MemberGate. Just go to the Membergate control panel, select 'Page Redirection' from the left nav panel under the Utilities section, and use that simple form.

Page Redirection is easy

Suppose you want to have a web page on your site with the name of 'join.html' which would take visitors to your subscription application form (which is actually found at an address like http://www.yoursitename.com/public/5.cfm).

To create that page redirection, just select select 'Page Redirection' from the left nav panel under the Utilities section on the MemberGate control panel and do the following:

  • In the 'Redirect Page Name' field, enter the new name of the page - IE join.html

  • In the 'Redirect to Page' field, enter the full http address of the page the named page should be redirected to. This can be the address of any page on the internet, including secure pages.

  • Click the 'create redirection page' button, and the redirection is created for you.

It is that simple!
