Page Links To

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!

How do I make it so that a page doesn’t link to anything? I’d like to use it as a dummy container.

Just use « # » as the link. That won’t go anywhere.

Can this be used to repoint categories to an arbitrary URL?

Not currently. Please contact me if you’re interested in that functionality.

My links are sending me to http://myblog.com/site-i-wanted-to-link-to.com … why?

If you want to link to a full URL, you must include the http:// portion.

Can I link to relative URLs for URLs on the same domain?

Yes. Linking to /my-photos.php is a good idea, as it’ll still work if you move your site to a different domain.

Avis

Perfect!

This plugin is simple, elegant, and works perfect. No fuss, no mess. Just activate it and your good to go. This is exactly how every plugin should work.

This Redirect Works Perfectly

I used to be a web programmer before switching over to WordPress. During that programming time, I used « redirects » frequently. I am so happy I found and installed this plugin that I can use with my menu to seamlessly jump to my Etsy site without making my users click around in order to find it! Easy to use. Powerful!

Perfect for a document library!

A customer recommended Page Links To as a way of improving their WordPress document library, which lists documents in a table using our Posts Table Pro plugin.

Page Links To integrates perfectly with Posts Table Pro. The documents are listed in a table layout and when you activate Page Links To, clicking on a post title lets you instantly download a document instead of taking you to the single post page.

It worked perfectly when I installed it and no further setup/config was needed. Thanks very much!
