Jekyll Pageless Redirects

Redirect any number of pages with one file. Supports htaccess style redirects.

Note: "Pageless" indicates you don't need to create new _pages or _posts to make the redirects occur. Pages are still generated and follow the tried and true http-equiv="refresh" method of redirection. This means the plugin will work on Github pages (if you generate your site and push it to gh-pages) or anywhere else that doesn't read .htaccess files.

Usage

Install pageless_redirects.rb in your plugins directory (_plugins in vanilla Jekyll, plugins in Octopress).

To generate redirects create _redirects.yml, _redirects.htaccess, and/or _redirects.json in the Jekyll root directory. All follow the pattern alias, final destination.

Sample _redirects.yml

initial-page   : /destination-page
other-page     : http://example.org/destination-page
"another/page" : /destination-page

Result

  • Requests to /initial-page are redirected to /destination-page
  • Requests to /other-page are redirected to http://example.org/destination-page
  • Requests to /another/page are redirected to /destination-page

Sample _redirects.htaccess

Redirect /some-page /destination-page
Redirect 301 /different-page /destination-page
Redirect cool-page http://example.org/destination-page

Result

  • Requests to /some-page are redirected to /destination-page
  • Requests to /different-page are redirected to /destination-page
  • Requests to /cool-page are redirected to http://example.org/destination-page

Sample _redirects.json

{
    "some-page"        : "/destination-page",
    "yet-another-page" : "http://example.org/destination-page",
    "ninth-page"       : "/destination-page"
}

Result

  • Requests to /some-page are redirected to /destination-page
  • Requests to /yet-another-page are redirected to http://example.org/destination-page
  • Requests to /ninth-page are redirected to /destination-page
