How do I redirect a page or post?

You may find yourself with the need to redirect a URL to another page, post, error page or even another site.  You can easily create and manage these redirections inside of your WordPress administrator dashboard.  

Step-By-Step Directions

1. Hover or click on Yoast SEO and click on "Redirects".  In most instances access to this menu item is restricted to site administrators.  This can be adjusted by the site administrator.

2. You will see "Plain redirects" and you will be given the opportunity to add a 301 redirect here. Simply add the full old URL in the space designated for it, and the full URL that you wish the page to point to, and then click on the "Add Redirect" button. 

3. Test that the redirect is working by typing in the old URL and verifying that it takes you to the new URL that you added.
