Alias Generator for Posts

Generates redirect pages for posts with aliases set in the YAML Front Matter.

How to Run

Place alias_generator.rb in your plugins directory, and ensure that you can run custom plugins (set safe: to false in _config.yml). Whenever you generate your Jekyll site, redirect pages will be created at the alias path in your output directory; for example, _site/post/6301645915/how-i-keep-limited-pressing-running/index.html.

How to Use

Place the full path of the alias (place to redirect from) inside the destination post's YAML Front Matter. One or more aliases may be given.

Example Post Configuration:

---
  layout: post
  title: "How I Keep Limited Pressing Running"
  alias: /post/6301645915/how-i-keep-limited-pressing-running/index.html
---

Example Post Configuration:

---
  layout: post
  title: "How I Keep Limited Pressing Running"
  alias: [/first-alias/index.html, /second-alias/index.html]
---
