Redirecting a page

You may want to redirect a page on your Wild Apricot site so that clicking its menu option links to a page on another site. Your organization might have several local websites and consequently you want to include a menu option on each that links to a central website.


You cannot display the new page in a separate tab or window since popup blockers will prevent this.

To redirect a page on your Wild Apricot site, follow these steps:

  1. Create a new empty page. You may need to create a blank template first, since pages inherit content from a template.
  2. Within the page settings for the new page, enter a Page name – the name that will appear in your site menu.
  3. Find the Meta-tags section and uncheck the Use default checkbox beside   Raw headers .  
  4. In the Raw headers code box, enter the following code:

     where redirect URL is the URL of the page you want to redirect to (e.g. http://yoursite.com ). If you are redirecting to an external page, the URL must begin with either http:// or https://. If you are redirecting to a page on your Wild Apricot site, the URL should be /pageURL where pageURL is the page URL of your Wild Apricot page. Note that there are two places in the code where you need to enter the URL. 


    Make sure you do not make a cyclical redirect to the same page.

  5. Click the Save button to save your changes.

Clicking the menu option for this page should now redirect it to the URL you entered.


The redirect will not work when you are logged in as an administrator. To test it, you need to log out and try it as a public visitor or a member.
